Cold, it dares
A gentle hum
Of fall to come
Far, they seem
The season’s fate
I’m no poet (not a genre I’m good at), but I randomly wrote the above fall poem the other day, on a whim. ♥
How’s everyone? I hope wherever in the world you may be, you’re enjoying this mid-September. The leaves are falling and the temperature is dropping, to the point where it’s chilly in the mornings and the evenings.
I’ve been soaking up the fall feeling as much as I can. Here is some evidence of that from this past week:
Admittedly no easy read (very graphic details), I’ve been reading The Great Mortality by John Kelly. This dives deep into the history of the Black Death, and it’s been hard to put down!!! I sat in Teazer’s the other day, sipping a Tiger Spice Chai and hearing the live music from the farmers market right outside the store. It was perfect and I ended up reading a lot that evening, until I decided to roam outside and buy fresh tomatoes and Armenian cucumbers.
Reading this has given me so much empathy for those living back in the time of the plague (and did you know it still exists today? Even in the U.S. …Google it, I’m not lying!). It’s hard to find anything to complain about in life when I’m reading about what these people went through. Definitely alters your perspective.
Doesn’t this coffee art just scream fall? ♥ And it was delicious, of course. I have missed hot drinks! This was from Kuppa Joy coffeehouse.
Let’s get started on this week’s fun outfits, shall we?
This first one was a favorite of mine that I wore on Monday. To me it totally has Spanish vibes going on, which I’m quite partial to! ♥
I felt like I should’ve been strolling through the streets of Barcelona, or Madrid, and finding some cute café to sit at and people watch. I enjoy people watching…and not in a creeper kind of way. Who knows, maybe I come off as a creeper. Oh wellz.
The red rose hair clips and the vintage-looking choker really tops off the Spanish look. I feel like I can easily play up the look and it feels natural, probably because I am part Spanish from my dad’s side.
Never knew him, but I do know he was a Spanish/Italian guy who was really artistic, a bit of a loner by choice at times and had an eccentric fashion sense. Apparently those are inheritable traits, because I’ve been all of those things my entire life. Bahahaaa…
Keeping up with the rose theme, this was my outfit on the day I went to Teazer’s and farmers market in the evening. I did the double-necklace-thing again for vintage vibes. ♥ Boooooooom…
The leaves make for such a lovely backdrop, don’t they? I love seeing them all scattered around. This time of year feels so alive!
After I finish the plague book, I think I’ll read something about Leonardo Da Vinci. I’ve been feeling strangely drawn to reading more about his life. I’ll generally feel a random pull towards a certain subject, and I always follow it. So that’s what I plan on reading next!
Happy fall. 🙂 (Oh wait…it’s not fall just yet. We still have a week, but it’s close!)
‘Til next time! ♥
