The Leaves That Fall


Fall, leaves, fall; die, flowers, away;
Lengthen night and shorten day;
Every leaf speaks bliss to me
Fluttering from the autumn tree.
- Emily Bronte


I guess the weather has me feeling poetic. I've always thought we have a wonderful fall here in 
the Deep South, but now as my world has expanded via the blogs I read, I realize I am totally 
getting ripped off! The weather here is still unstable. We have cool, perfect mornings followed
by hot, sticky afternoons. And then before I know it- the leaves will be gone and the days will 
be gray.

Cardigan- JC Penny's
Feather Top- New York & Co.
Skirt and Boots- Old Navy

 That's really all I have to say about that. I choose to linger in fall. Embrace the crunchy leaves and the golden sun this weekend. I know I will.

Eh, believe me, you're not missing out on anything! I know I'm in the minority, but I can't stand fall because it means the freezing cold winter is just around the corner. Our weather is wacky here too...it's supposed to be 72 today and just days ago it was just over 50. Have a great weekend, Katie!

I SO LOVE THOSE boots. We've also been having that problem in Kentucky this fall. Perfect mornings, hot afternoons, cold nights. I want the crisp, perfect fall of my youth. All the leaves orange, yellow and red, from the end of September till the beginning of November. After that it gets COLD.

I'll totally be jealous of your short winter and early spring in a few months:) I miss living in the south the most in March when it feels like the rest of the world is warming up and it's still snowing in New England. Have a great weekend Katie!

Ugh, I wish I could enjoy crunchy leaves and golden sun - but instead I'm busy getting sunburned. I absolutely love that feather top (duh) and the colors in this outfit are so perfectly fall. Have a great weekend, Katie :)

To be honest, the leaves here in Boston are only crunchy for a short period of time... it's mostly wet since it rains every other day. BUT the scenery is really pretty. Love your outfit and that first picture is beautiful. Have a great weekend! :)

OK, remember when I sent you that email about how we are like separated at birth? You are describing exactly our weather. Seriously, I live in Little Rock. Are we freaking neighbors or something?!

This is THE fall look - so stunning. These warm yellow and orange tones always look stunning on you.

Katie, we ARE totally getting ripped off. It's still in the 70s, and it's almost the end of October. I'm sick of sticky humidy :(


But I love your feather top!

Hailey said...

I'm going to write a poem about how I am jealous of everyone's cute boots because my calves are still too wide. lol I think I am gonna cave and buy some boots that *might* fit, just in case they DO fit!

You look gorgeous in those rich fall colors. :) No crunchy leaves here - I'd love to experience a "real" fall someday. :)

Annie said...

We have mostly pines in our neighborhood, but my drive to work every morning is BEAUTIFUL!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thank you! We brunettes look good in everything, you know ;)

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Mine too! Who can resist a delicate feather?

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Well, you've been killing it with the amazingly cozy fall outfits!!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Me too! Although I guess I'm getting a "realer" fall than you are!!!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Right?! It's so beautiful!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thank you!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Oh, geez! Please do! I would love that! I barely fit ito boots, so I understand the frustration! I think both Wardrobe Oxygen and Opinionated Girl have recent posts on wide calf boots. Do you read either of them?

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Me too! And now we are going back up to the 80s this week, AFTER I picked out lovely warm and cozy clothes!! Why?

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thank you so much :)

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I'm in Bama, so we are pretty close!! And I swear it goes into awful winter weather so fast- we get like no fall and no spring!!!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Truth be told, that makes me feel A LOT better about things, no lie! I mean I don't want you to deal with rain all the time, but at least now I know the truth!!!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Believe it- look at Hayley/Discourse of a Diva's reply above. Didn't you post about wide calf boots recently??

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thanks!!

Thanks for the shoutout ;)

Laurel Walker said...

I sure did! So did Allie but I'm not sure of her link.

Virginia said...

I've been saying that for years. People here talk about loving fall, and I'm like "You mean the 2 weeks we get every year?" Same goes for spring. Pfft. But at least our winters are mild enough to wear fall clothes all the way through.

Hailey said...

I know I have come upon Wardrobe Oxygen before, but I don't think I've read Opinionated Girl. I will definitely check them out!

Hailey said...

Thank ya!! :-)

I word - LOVE :)
