{ City Stroll } Autumn Challenge

Fall 1-Full_FINAL

As promised I have some more newness from ColdLogic to show off to you.  I decided to also make it a part of Strawberry Singh’s Autumn Challenge Meme by answering a few quick questions on the subject of “Fall”.  I hope everyone’s enjoying the start to October!

  1. Is autumn your favorite season? Why or why not? – Yes, most definitely without a doubt.  I grew up in Michigan and so Autumn was a bigger deal and lasted much longer than the Fall season I get in Virginia now.  I am just a cooler weather girl… I love my warm sweaters and jeans and sitting around a fire with some hot cocoa.  I would opt for this over hot, sweaty summer any day. 😛
  2. Do you call it Autumn or Fall? – I use them both really.
  3. What kind of weather does your area get during this season? – It’s mostly sunny and mild in the high 60s or low 70s.  Much warmer than I prefer for this season, but as long as I can wear a sweater I’m happy.
  4. Which color do you always associate with autumn? – Rusty Orange
  5. Which Autumn themed sim is your favorite at the moment? – Mine? kidding! lol.. I haven’t really gotten a chance to see all of them out there.  But the newly renovated Floorplan sim where I took these pics is on the top of my list right now.  As well as Vespertine’s.  So many details put into these beautiful locations.

The word Fall or Autumn usually conjures up all sorts of wonderful imagery of warm inviting colors and falling leaves blowing across a winding road in a cozy wooded valley; the smell of burning wood as fires are stoked and chimneys start smoking; wooley sweaters, comfy jeans, and boots to combat the new briskness in the air; the little chill on our noses that can be easily remedied by bring a nice warm cuppa something up to our lips.  Granted, my love of coffee goes beyond just one season, but this time of year is certainly special… in a word, PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE.  Ok so that’s three words.  Three very important words that always make me smile and my belly warm.  Anyone that knows me well, has probably figured out that I’m quite the pumpkin lover.  I tend to salivate over anything with pumpkin in it… breads, cookies, muffins, pies, pasta, soups, ice cream even.  And of course… COFFEEEEE!  So when {What Next} introduced this new Cocoa-on-the-Go Cart that actually dispensed my favorite autumnal drink?!?!.. you can imagine the squeeing that went on behind my closed office door.  I was one happy girl.

I must also mention that in addition to great coffee, I am also excited to be slipping into my jeans and sweaters finally, and ColdLogic has just released some wonderful fall basics to mix-n-match.  I paired my skinny jeans with the adorable new booties from Fri.day with the optional sock tops.  Finally ones that I can wear with my mesh jeans!  This is only the first of a few outfits I will show off to you.

Many thanks to Ms. Harlow Heslop‘s beautiful landscaping of “The Grounds” where I took this pic, home to the Pixel Bean Coffeehouse.  If you’ve never been, go check it out, as it’s truly one of my favorite places for hanging out, relaxing, and meeting new people.  There are periodic music events going on and always tons of fun.  It very much reminds me of the type of coffeehouses I used to frequent back in my college days and listen to some live bands such as the one I posted below.

Now if you’ll excuse me I have a pumpkin muffin staring me down. Enjoy your Monday!

Gonna keep this post short and sweet.  So much to do, so little time.

Inspired by the lovely fantasy style MESH outfit that was available for Fifty Linden Fridays from Valentina E.  I grew some pointy ears and romped through the forest playing with leaves and enjoying the changing colors.  Sometimes a little fresh air and fancy free time is just what we need this time of year to refresh and recharge.  Now go enjoy your weekend!
