A Chill is in the Air!

Reactions: 
I awoke to a slight chill in the air this morning.  I love a nice chilly fall morning and  I can honestly say that I have NEVER paired these items together before, but I am loving it. I pretty much considered this a "Summer" dress. It's just your basic black racerback Maxi dress from TJ Maxx. I like that this dress is pretty thin, so even when paired with this long sleeve cardigan I am not having cardigan commitment issues.  Cardigan commitment issues are something that I think all women have all dealt with a time or two. It happens when you wear a sleeveless garment under a cardigan with no intention of removing the cardigan. Then about half-way through the day you realize that your about to pass out from heat exhaustion, but you didn't have the foresight to plan ahead and wear appropriate (in this case racerback bra) undergarments so you are just stuck literally sweating it out or letting it all hang out (bra straps). I like to try to keep it pretty professional, so the bra straps just are not an option for me. But all that to say that I my selections have been perfect for the chilly mid 50s morning to the low 70s afternoon. Again, I think playing favorites is okay,when it comes to my obsession for yellow and fall! 

"In the entire circle of the year there are no days so delightful as those of a fine October, when the trees are bare to the mild heavens, and the red leaves bestrew the road, and you can feel the breath of winter, morning and evening -- no days so calm, so tenderly solemn, and with such a reverent meekness in the air." ~ Alexander Smith
