Timing is Everything

The time change is really cramping my style.  I had to seriously hustle to get these pictures taken before the sun set (at 4:50!) whilst freezing my appendages off.  My next mission will have to be to scout some indoor locations.  Cause it's gonna be a loooooong winter here in central New York State. 

The Cornell Plantations are a favorite spot of mine on campus, and I've been checking back periodically to see them progress into Fall.  These little trees are the most vibrant specimens there now that nothing is in bloom.

My engagement ring makes an appearance with this outfit.  I've been married for 2 and a half years, and love having a low maintenance wedding band.  My engagement ring, which I also love, is a cocktail ring with an amethyst center stone.  I don't wear it every day because of its size, but it does make me happy to bring out every now and then.  Do you have an alternative engagement ring?


  1. I really love the layers and textures of your outfit it's really pretty!!! and the campus grounds are gorgeous.

  2. wow - your ring is beautiful! i'm not married or engaged, but i've given this topic a lot of thought (dont tell my bf, haha!). i love having the option to wear just the band, and add a sparkly engagement ring when the occasion calls for it.
