over the past week here in Vermont, we went from high summer straight to mid-fall. the nights and mornings are chilly, and nothing sounds better than snuggling on the couch with a hot mug of tea and either my boyfriend, or my cat, depending on who is around. this also means that sweater weather has arrived much faster than usual, and while I am not emotionally prepared to swap out my sandals for my boots quite yet, I'm welcoming the opportunity to throw on a leather jacket and a scarf to help deal with the dipping temps. and luckily for us, the Madewell fall lookbook came out just in time for some much needed inspiration. I don't think anyone was surprised by the abundance of flannel and heavy knits, but this catalog is just what I need to get me excited for the next 8 cold months.
