Snark Control

Skirt? Thrifted Wool vest? Thrifted Sweatshirt? Joe Fresh Boots? Winners
This last weekend was fabulous. Yes, fabulous and I do not use that word lightly (maybe I do but in this case I am not). It was Thanksgiving Weekend here in Canada and we booked a cottage up in Blue Mountain area with Matt's side of the family for a few days. I took my little brother along as well because my parents are still in Holland eagerly awaiting the birth of their first grandchild, and I felt sorry for him. It was a pity invite. Nah, I'm kidding, I love my little brother and I knew he would fit in just fine. The love of beer and a hot tub on a long weekend is common ground for everyone.

The company was great, the weather was perfect and the autumn colour show was at its peak. I told you... fabulous.

On the 3 hour drive home, Matt and I took the meandering, scenic route along the back roads. I think we were silent for much of the drive as we took in the sun-soaked autumn splendour. I mentioned last year that the fall has a way of knocking the sarcasm out of me and it stands true this year again. I look at the kaleidiscope of autumn colour and not a snarky thing crosses my mind. And that's a good thing because sometimes (full, though not shocking, disclosure), I think pretty bitchy things.

I'm glad you had such a glorious Thanksgiving weekend. I love your fall photos/ensemble/general awesomeness.

p.s. Last week I got a word verification: "stinky"

You know, I've never thought of it that way, but I think you're totally right. Fall can make a sap out of anyone. And spring. Those good ole transitional months. Anywhosie, I love all your pattern mixing here and those boots are killer!

Oh, girl, I know whatcha mean about thinking mean things! I love Autumn, too. I went to college in Vermont and this season always makes me nostalgic.

PS. is it weird that we are thinking of going to Canada for US Thanksgiving this year?

Pop Champagne said...

love the vest you are wearing! it looks so cozy!

Meg said...

I had a 3-hour drive home this Thanksgiving weekend myself, through the Annapolis Valley in Nova Scotia, and I was pretty quiet myself. Something about the beauty of fall just catches you, doesn't it? It's such a wonderful feeling.

I did feel guilty about ignoring everyone else in the car, though. ;)

love this outfit!

Amber said...

Beautiful pictures! Looks gorgeous! And I just love your boots.

sartoriography said...

Oh, Yen. Please come visit me and wear this outfit every day you're here. I wouldn't judge you if you stunk, it would really cut down on laundry, and I'd be so happy seeing you look this awesome over and over again.

Shockingly enough, fall has the same de-sarcasmifiying impact on me. It's hard to make fun of things when everything in your field of vision is legitimately gorgeous and humbling. Thank goodness winter will be here soon and I can go back to being a judgmental gripe-face.
