Dressing for fall

Happy Halloween! Any plans for tonight???

Like I talked about earlier in the week, I was lucky enough to escape to Rhode Island this weekend. My very gracious mom took these snaps of me while I was up there. Oh who am I kidding... we laughed our heads off and had a blast, as we often do :)

But I don't lie when I say that my heart was bursting as we were out and about amongst the gorgeous autumn leaves. I can't even believe how idyllic these pictures look.

I received this awesome cardigan other day from Oasap, and haven't been able to take it off since. It is sooo cozy, and my favorite color!! It's a little thin for fall, but I have other layering cardis to pair it with.

Also, my parents gave me a bucket full of vintage bow ties to take home with me. I thought at first that they'd be perfect for Matt... but then it occured to me that I wanted them! I guess we can share. I threw this cute brown one on, just to try it out. Survey says... yes!

Oh- and this lovely silk shirt is a super proud thrift score... $3!!

Other than that, all weekend I've been listening to new mixes and arrangements of my songs for the new EP!!! It's hard to know how much to talk about it here. Part of me wants it to be a complete surprise, yet the other part is dying to share all the details. Ha, what I really want to do is post the mixes up, so that everyone can listen to them!! I am really, really psyched. My songs are better, plus I'm in love with Saul's arrangements, and his overall magic touch. It's really such a privilege to witness the bones of your ideas build up into something real and wonderful.

Also, I don't really have a plan yet. I don't know how I'm going to release it, or raise funds for it. I think about all that stuff, and even though it's exciting, it's just so hard to do on your own.

Well, one way or another it will get done. It always does :)
