How to Pack for a Long Autumn Weekend by Starting with a Scarf - Funky Foliage by Treasure & Bond

She really wants to go up to the lake house one more time... in the autumn...

She always feels really sentimental, and just a little bit homesick, in the autumn. Not homesick for home, but for that time when she was in school, and September brought fresh starts - a chance to begin again...

Autumn also brings back all of her favorite sweaters! So when her siblings starting talking about the need to double-check on the house before winter, she offered to go up...

A couple of evenings in front of the fireplace reading won't be the worst thing in the world...

I'm not the little devil that told you that these penny loafers come in TWENTY-SIX different colors...

And a few long walks in the forest will be nourishing to her soul...

  1. Who remembers Bass Weejuns? :-) Autumn nostalgia for sure, even when I lived in Houston! Love this post.

  2. Too bad the Bass penny loafers that come in 26 colors! don't come in Wide widths. Times like these remind me of why I snatch up every pair of 6.5W that I find.

    As much as I hate to see summer go (although we're having a last hurrah this weekend), I have to admit I long for the days of autumn and tbe annual fresh start. I was the only kid I knew who loved the first day of school.

  3. Perfect little wardrobe to go with a perfect little story. I do hope she runs into that Fish & Game Warden...

  4. I wondered who this heroine was dressing so well for...The handsome Fish and Game Warden of course. :)

  5. I really love your wardrobes Janice, but I wish there were more warm color based ones. I know a rich dark brown is hard to find, but I can't wear grey, black or burgundy and look good. They completely drain me. I'd love to see a wardrobe with warm colours, but without rust, which I know is popular this year. I can't wear mustard, olive or rust either. Lol, no wonder I have trouble buying clothes! Anyway, as I'm typing this I realize I'm a difficult customer. Thanks for reading. Christine xo

    1. It all depends on your focus. I need the cool colors and feel disappointed every time a warm focus one comes up. Janice must have it well balanced if we both want more.

  6. My Janics, your lady loves sneaking off to that lakehouse. It sounds like a good investment in terms of CPV. I feel peaceful being there with her (hope she doesn't feel I've intruded on her solitude!). And she makes me feel better about what I packed for my recent long weekend. I like your lady a lot and feel I could easily slip into her capsule - hope she's a generous size! Hugs, x.

  7. Am I the only one who wants the wardrobe for when our lady of the lake(house) takes the fish and game warden to meet the rest of the family?

  8. Oh i would love to have these clothes, especially the scarf and fairaisle jumper.
