"In Danger of Falling . . . "

SMW Design, Berkeley Project 2012.


Well, we're finally home from vacationing along the northeast coast and Canada.  And I want to be sure that I don't deluge you with nothing but vacation pictures for the next several posts . . . lol.  

So, we'll kinda be a little stealth about this.  Seriously, there's only one vacation picture in this entire post.  And I didn't even take the picture myself.  But, don't fret, there's a whole memory card's worth of pictures that I'll start posting over the next couple of weeks.  

But, for now - let's talk about the weather.  Fall is always somewhat of a struggle for me.  I'm usually always in the mood for fall much sooner than the weather is ready for my wardrobe.  Luckily, San Francisco usually works in my favour - giving me some cool mornings and chilly evenings to make the tweed and wool a little more palatable.

So.  No matter what your local forecast is.  Let's start getting ready for fall . . . .

Quebec City, Quebec Canada.   We actually stayed at the beautiful le Chateau Fontenac Hotel (the large structure in the center of the image) during our last stop in Quecbec City.  A marvelous city - full of amazing architecture and history.

I guess we should get our top hats ready! Glad you are back and enjoying fall weather. I remember you have ties to the South, so you know how we are pretending to have fall weather here - for now.

Give us a few weeks and we'll be in tweeds.
Welcome back and breathtaking post!

I'm on the bandwagon for top hats as well, ESPECIALLY with a veil and a riding habit!! what else give the same combination of chic, tailoring, and romance all at the same time?!?

WOW! The Autumn leaf/water reflections look just like ours at the lake!! Fall has fell (leaves!!) franki

the hotel is marvelous . . . both architecturally and in their amazing service. And yes, the rooms are amazing.

I agree, I love this season, but as a Southern California person the weather is laughing at my nod to fall, knowing we'll be enjoying (read: suffering) hot weather until late October. Love the photographs you've shared. The vintage RL is really fun and so classic.
