(new) fall basics. I find it rather remarkable the things that with time you tend to forget. Take the Mexican (rather sweltering) October heat- it seems that during my years growing up in Mexico City I simply (and naturally) took great weather for granted. And so, in the past month, I have been oh-so pleasantly surprised by the beautiful (and ongoing) warmth.
We do have, however, (rather unfortunately)(and rather fortunately) the evenings to remind us that it is in fact fall already and a little cashmere and cover-up is required.
Still, having lived through proper autumns, I find that the time for fur and cozying up (aka living) in cashmere (and silk blended) pashminas is not quite here yet.
So I have made (painted?!) my perfect substitute- a silk habotai scarf. Hand-dyed in black ‘n blue, twisted and tied.
My new fall basic.
