ninety-five percent anticipation

Yeah, I know. The socks kind of ruin the whole outfit. It was laundry day, what do you want. And I still haven't figured out how to make leggings work with flats when bare feet are totally impractical, like with today's surprise cold weather. Guess I have to finally kiss summer warmth goodbye.

Practiced a little indoor photography today, in anticipation of snow months when I won't want to go outside for pictures. The lighting situation at my house creates quite a problem, however. It's great if you want subtle bits of natural light streaming into a shadowed room for portraits, but good luck getting a clear, crisp figure shot without bringing all kinds of extra lamps into the place. I'm just not cut out for that much planning! Hence these somewhat grainy, blurry photos from this morning.

It's been a busy week here, and there's plenty more to come, what with Halloween approaching and neither decorations nor costumes being finished. I love this holiday, but it could not come at a more hectic time. (Okay, that's a lie. If it happened during the November-January stretch I'd probably cry.) Hope to have some pictures of this year's projects posted soon.

i like the socks! as to leggings and flats.. i tend to wear trouser socks under mine [you have to put the socks on first to avoid bunchy chaos] or semi-matching brightly colored ankle socks. sometimes i get the weird 1/2" ankle gap which can be chilly.

and the itty bitty pumpkins are adorable!

I actually like the socks also! That last photo is beautiful. I haven't seen the fall leaves since I moved from Jersey fifteen years ago. Fall used to be my favorite season so I miss it a lot. I found your blog on the comment you left on my budget blog group on IFB, and I am now following on bloglovin :) Take care and happy blogging ♥
