It is officially fall in Florence! And I couldn’t be more thrilled. Growing up in Florida fall is always a struggle. September rolls around and everyone starts pulling out their sweaters and scarfs and drinking their pumpkin lattes, while those of us in Florida are still sweltering in the Florida heat and humidity. Despite the warm temps, I always get excited and start buying fall clothes. But then I wait, and wait, and wait. Finally November rolls around and if we are lucky, we get a chilly day our two. By then the excitement over your new fall clothing is over. This happens every year.
But not this year! Because this year I am in Florence, and fall arrived promptly (basically overnight) mid-September. I will admit chilly mornings, warm afternoons, and cool evenings are not easy to dress for. But I think I am getting the hang of it -- longer skirts, light jackets and scarves, and closed-toe shoes. It isn’t quite tight weather yet, but I am definitely looking forward to its arrival.
You know me, I love unexpected color and pattern combinations. Burgundy and blush is basically a fall version of my favorite combination - pink and red.
