Blue & Gold By The Birch Trees

My October reading list got a bit away from me last month, so I'm carrying a few of those books over to this month and not making a new reading list right now. If I end up reading them in good time I'll try to squeeze in some new novels, but I'm trying to be realistic with my goals on what to do and read each month. I have a new project happening behind the scenes and that has stolen most of my free time usually devoted to autumn walks and good books! Although I'm still getting out a bit for a wander in the woods when I can. Anyway, November is pretty much just as spooky (if not more so!) as October, so there's still a good, moody atmosphere to enjoy my Frankenstein in...even if the birch trees in these pictures create the opposite sort of environment with their cheery leaves! This is one of my favorite little patches every autumn; the bright yellow leaves are so striking in this area even this year despite our wind and rain which has knocked a good number down of them down. I'm not looking forward to the end of this pretty season...
P.S. This dress is pretty old, this is my third autumn wearing it, but it's still available for sale from Family Affairs and less than $100!



  1. Wonderful background and such a lovely look!

  2. I've found that being realistic with my reading goals helps tons! I used to challenge myself to multiple books a month - but now I spread one over a month!

    Really beautiful outfit, too!

  5. Talking of reading lists, are you on Goodreads?
    These clothbound editions are so beautiful, aren't they?! I read Frankenstein many years ago and it should deserve a re-read but my TBR list is so huge that I'd rather turn to new readings first. "So many books so little time" and all that.
    I always love how your outfits subtly match the autumnal landscape!

    1. No I'm not on Goodreads--too much time online with the blog and such to add another site to my list! :p
      And yes, I love the new released clothbound editions. I used to hate hardcovers when I was younger, but now I find a classic-looking book so nice.

    2. Too bad for Goodreads ;)
      I was also not a fan of hardbacks at all but they've grown on me, especially when they look so pretty as these. And they add that vintage touch to a bookshelf.

  6. That dress is so cute! I have the same one (bought it two years ago), but I haven’t worn it yet as the sleeves are a bit tight:/ I’m hanging on to it though, it’s too beautiful to sell - I’m rather hoping for my arms to shrink a little:P
    The necklace is cute too, I have the barn owl one. So perfect for this season!

  7. I love absolutely everything about this post! The dress, the shoes, the purse, the coat, the scarf, the necklace, the hair, the trees, the colors! Everything is simply perfectly beautiful! :)

  8. I am obsessed with that owl necklace it is so cute

  9. I absolutely love your fall outfits. When the weather gets cool enough to start wearing tights again I know the best part of the year is upon us. I love your backseam nylons, they look fantastic. It's one of my favourite styles. And those shoes!! How totally cute!! Anyway, thanks again for sharing and giving us style inspiration while brightening our day.
