Wearing Autumn Spices!


As I walked in the neighborhood this morning, the acorns crunched under my feet as if a crackling fire was nearby.  The hint of autumn seems to be around a little earlier than usual.  Oh, it is still hot…just not as hot as we are used to at this time. 
But, I am really enjoying my autumn clothes and d├ęcor…football games on TV…and the burst of joy I feel when seasons change.  Starbuck's even smells like spice:


Thank you for all of the great advice and, yes, sobering stories from the sugar post yesterday.  I really am cutting back…it is just those days at school which are much tougher.  But, I think you have empowered me to face these moments with more determination.  Such incredible women, to be open and share some of your stories.

Today’s outfit is in celebration of autumn colors!!  I love this saffron cardigan by Jana Kos.  It is very sad to me that this designer is currently in hiatus due to the economy.  She is so talented and really knows women.   From the Neiman’s Runway to Nicole Richie’s latest collection, I have seen the peacock colors all over the current season.  Now, I can wear cinnamon, sage, saffron, nutmeg; and not just savor them in the seasonal dishes!
 I found this scarf last year at Stein Mart.  Actually, I made a sales associate take it off of the mannequin since it was the last remaining!
So, tell us what your favorite autumn spice is to wear and then visit the bloggers from KATIE'S FAVORITE THINGS BLOG HOP!

  6. What a gorgeous scarf, Pam - I'm so happy you snagged it from the mannequin! I remember when you got that beautiful cardi, and I am sorry to hear the designer is not active. She makes such wearable, flattering clothes.
