dreary

The day is cold, and dark, and dreary; It rains, and the wind in never weary; The vine still clings to the mouldering wall, But at every gust the dead leaves fall, And the day is dark and dreary- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

It was one of those perfectly dreary raining days today..I love this fall-like weather! We took our umbrellas out and walked around our neighborhood for a bit enjoying the crisp early morning air and had coffee on the deck. We live in a house built in the 1860's in the historic district in town and I love walking down the original cobblestone streets and admiring all of the beautiful old houses. They have so much charm and character! 



 Gloomy overcast days give me a chance to wear my favorite fall jacket, I adore this trench!

Beautiful photos as always.

I love portishead. I am so excited to see them live at the end of this year.

Roads is one of my all time favourite songs, and it's perfect for a dreary day.

LOVELY! This outfit is my idea of the perfect Fall ensemble, umbrella and all. I can't wait to break out my umbrellas when the rain begins in SF. xx

Oh I adore Portishead. Beautiful outfit on you. I like the black tights with the cream lace dress, it works so well together. Totally envious of your umbrella, you always just see the boring black or grey (like mine, ha ha).

These shots are SO pretty! The umbrella is cute and the outfit is so sweet. I adore that dress. Really, so pretty!

Hello lovely! You look beautiful, and the shape of your umbrella is beautiful. Does it have a manufacturer's tag? I'd love to know who made it. And I'm glad I'm not the only one who likes to wear impractical shoes in rain. I always tell myself that a platform will elevate me above puddles, and sandals will dry out quickly... ha! :)
