Lower Light

Paris is known as the City of Light but the light everywhere starts to change once we move closer to autumn.  It becomes lower and warmer which is part of the reason I want to wear more neutrals and warmer colors. They just go together. I was cleaning out a Paris Vogue from May and noticed a fashion spread called Un Week-End, that epitomizes this feeling. It looks like a very chic French version of Thelma and Louise but you get the idea.  
Someone commented that I was rushing the seasons with my Shifting into Neutral post.   Other than a few really hot days, it hasn’t been that warm in Paris.  Most of the mornings are rather cool and grey before the clouds burn off and the afternoon becomes bright and sunny.  The temperate weather means that I could wear many of the pre-fall clothes starting to trickle into the stores.  Not the coats obviously but that hasn’t stopped me from looking  Everyone knows you have to buy a coat before you actually need it or they’ll all be gone.  Don’t hate the player, hate the game.

    Seasons here can turn on a dime, We may hit 100 today and it is humid, even Indian Summer can extend into October and then all of a sudden it will be very cool and sweater weather. I always layer and am excited to see the fall collections coming out!

    Heather you continually present value and I look forward to your posts. There is a saying…
    “Gratitude is the sign of noble souls”
    Please keep that in mind when you hear from the “less noble”.

    Gorgeous spread! I love neutrals. I wear them year-round and don’t care if the trends say to do so or not…I wear what I love!
