It's fall and I've made the part-time switch from bare feet to shoes, which means I have blisters on the backs of my feet today. Well, they might have also come from a particularly rigorous weekend of fence-building with my dad (the literal, not metaphorical kind). Seriously, my garden fence is 80% completed right now. I'll post photos tomorrow, because the very thought of walking that far to take the photos makes my skin ache. I also have to post a photo montage of all the fascinating fungi growing in my yard. Stay tuned.
Back to fall. I accept that we're in the season for pumpkins and wool sweaters. I've even got "apple picking" on this week's agenda. As I transition into my fall wardrobe, I'm finding a serious lack of decent casual. I have skirts and dresses aplenty, so I can head to church or a wedding. I have abundant amounts of grubby clothes for painting and digging and window washing. But I can't seem to find that in-between kind of outfit--you know, to wear bowling, say, or out to dinner with friends.
I definitely need one new pair of jeans, but then what? What would you recommend I find to wear this fall?
