the autumn leaves will all be falling soon

The beautiful flowers
Will all fade away
The streams will all freeze and
The fields turn to gray

The frogs all will slumber

The birds will take flight
And winter's cold wonder
Will bid us goodnight

As the sun starts to set and
The leaves start to change

The autumn leaves will all be falling soon
And then winter will come in for the kill

For tonight is the last night of summer
My love
Of the summer
Of love

Excerpt from: Karen Elson - Lunasa

Behold: my autumn dress. I bought it in Paris last summer, but had to wait for the time when the summer sun wouldn't clash horribly with the autumn leaves on the fabric. I paired it up with an ancient H&M blouse, stockings from a Swedish store and a gold vintage belt that happens to match the charming leaf detail on the dress' shoulder straps:
See how adorable?

  17. I was just about to ask where this was from - I adore the autumnal print, really gorgeous! The UK retailers seem to stick with one type of print when they find one which sells ,eg breton, but I am faaaar more interested in ones like these. Really lovely jazzy ♥
