Oregon seems to always have Indian Summers. It’s almost as if our months are all off. Winter lasts clear into April, and summer into October. I try not to complain when we have nice weather, since Oregon is known for its rain, but I have loads of woolen skirts and suits that are beginning to feel neglected! But today provided a glorious temperature for me to wear this amazing blouse a picked up earlier this week!
I normally don’t go for garments with Mandarin collars, but this blouse jumped out at me and I fell in love the instant I put it on. It’s made of fine, cool rayon and is perfect for these sort of days. Plus the color and gold thread detailing just screams fall!

On a few other notes… Patrick came home yesterday! And I finished my Halloween costume! Since Patrick and I are actually doing a couples costume this year, we require a third person to take photos, so tomorrow we’re getting together with our friend Anthony for a photo shoot. Anthony is an absolute delight to work with and I am really looking forward to shooting as well as sharing my Halloween costume that I have been slaving away on for two months. Has anyone else decided upon their Halloween costume?
