Let's just keep moving on this kinda fun 'I'm-loving-everything-fallish-right-now' series. We always have a notoriously chilly summer here in SF - it's not like I ever pack away the cashmere sweaters or light-weight jackets. Except in the early fall. We tend to get a sharp slap in the face of Summer weather in early-mid September that, regardless of the fact that it happens every year, still catches me off-guard. Blessedly, the indian summer has passed - and it's back to sleeping in sweaters and listening to the sound of fog horns in the morning before I get up for work. It's Fall. Properly.
Though my Scottish heritage is better known - I also have a bit of Canada in me as well. In fact, I was born there - while my father was stationed in Ottawa for the US Air Force. Though my deepest love will always be for the tartans and tweeds of my ancestral Scotland . . . I also get a bit giddy when I see the iconic Hudson Bay blanket. (I'm not sure we can rack it *all* up to genetics - but, let's start with that - lol.) I first came to know it from the classic men's jacket, I also love its decorative use within the home even better. The perfect way to signal the beginning of the season.
So from the layered warmth of the Hudson Bay coat . . .
. . . to these stylish and romantic uses of the classic Hudson Bay stripe in decorating . . .
