Aphrodite 's Thoughts:

Hi! =) Hope you had a great weekend.=)

It’s our dog day today but we didnt go to the botanical garden. It was pretty miserable and we actually planned to stay home all day and watch movies but then we got bored and went out at dusk and got some real coffee. (Read magazines from Dubai while the man edits a book.)

I’m a summer girl really and the only thing i like about winter is black stockings/tights. Most of you love layering, and i cant blame you. Not everybody can do it (im still learning). And yes, we love boots!!!! But dont get me wrong, i dont hate winter, im just really a sun girl. Autumn makes me feel sad because it’s like the end of the bright days. End of holiday season. End of colors. The leaves start falling, the trees look dead. The sky is cloudy most of the time and then it rains. So i just kept complaing. Then we went to the country side, in this beautiful forest at the edge of Russia and the mountains were red!! It was beautiful…That was my first autumn..So i decided that autumn is not so bad. Then winter came. We dont have the coldest weather but we do have one of the strongest winds if not the strongest as our little city sits next to the Caspian Sea. The temperature is fine, then the wind blows and your ears start to hurt. I was sick for months. I wanted to go home or go back to the middle east. Then the snow fell and everything turned white. I couldnt say anything but Wow…I really went out in my pyjamas and touched the snow flakes. And oh i loved the crunchy sound when you step on it? Then my husband taught me how to make my first Snow Man.=) And i asked him for like a million times, why we dont have it in Philippines? Its not fair!!!! =) So again, i decided, winter is not so bad. But the next day, i changed my mind when the snow turned into ice and i fell at least 15 times. And got hit by snow balls by kids. But im better now. I still think summer is the best time of the year but now i appreciate the changing seasons more because they signal a time for change in fashion. (But its still a heartbreak putting my summer clothes away.) For me, autumn means red leaves, picnic in the woods, cardigans and soft/dark florals with black stockings and jackets and blazers and shopping for coats for the colder days to come. Our fireplace came alive yesterday and got my red-thick-fluffy robe out so i’m fine. The bears will hybernate soon and i have to admit that getting up is getting more difficult everyday. =( But what to do, its part of the package.=)

Anyway, this what i wore today. I hope you like it.=)

Again, thank you so much for the comments (especially those who come and visit my me almost everyday if not everyday—my page isnt complete without you.) and those who vote when they think i deserve it.=) Thank you so much. I owe you guys my chic points.You know who you are (and i do too!) and you know i love you…<3

Love Love Kiss Kiss

i love the cape, and love what you wrote. i definitely enjoy the change in seasons, as in the late winter I will begin to miss my summer clothing and basking in the warmth of the sun but in summer, i miss my big comfy coats, scarves, hats, and drinking warm tea by the fireplace with the smell of smoke all around

ok, first off, before i even read the post, i have similar gloves, and you are working them! i live in central florida, near the gulf of mexico, and there's never a real fall or winter, we get like a month or two of cold weather, then we have summer the rest of the year. i wish i could see leaves change and actual seasons change for that matter. love your ensemble though, you look fab!
