We've had a crazy warm fall. It's November and we still have most of the leaves on our trees. Still, there has been a lot of raking required. I'm sure one could rake in sweatpants and fleece, but that's not very Instagrammable. Far better to wear something cute should the neighbours walk by. For leaf raking, I like a plaid shirt, the J. Crew excursion vest, and short Bean Boots. Pearls add a festive touch, but obviously the Mikimotos should be saved for other occasions. Something faux is far more suitable.
