Gold and rust, after all

Having said in my last post that I preferred bright jewel colors over the warm shades I usually wear at this time of year,  I have to admit that this month's dazzling display of fields and leaves turning gold, brown and red has turned me back to my regular autumn scarves (which were practically begging to be taken out of the drawer).

My pink coat gets a rest until winter sets in, by which time our second lockdown should have ended. We are halfway through, with two more weeks to go. I am truly grateful to live in the countryside with the sense of freedom that the daily walks with my dogs give me. Hope everyone is healthy, safe, and in good spirits despite the challenges that 2020 brings us.

The shape of the fence and the colors behind reminded me of my "Cents Plis de Miao" Hermes 90 scarf, here in the basic bias fold (the scarf even features a pony, see below). Also by Hermes: Kelly Double Tour bracelet in ebene. Nudo ring by Pomellato (here) and coat by Majestic Filature (here)

The "Les Cuirs de Desert" Hermes 90 scarf is another autumn favorite of many years. Here in a Bib knot, bracelet as before.

Variation with a dark teal sweater instead of the beige and the "Les Cuirs de Desert" Hermes 90 scarf tied as before.
