Style Ethique: Japanese Maple
I’m finally getting back into the groove of things after a month away and a very transitional, yet evolutionary period in my life. It’s so nice to be home and amongst the turning leaves, the crisp cold air and the sweet smells of clove, sage and burning fireplaces. Autumn is by far my favorite season (I may be a bit bias being that I am a late October baby). There’s something romantically eerie and mysteriously beautifully about it – the cycle of life and death so apparent it reminds us that we are indeed alive. It’s also the best season for fashion. Oh, the layering!
I am fortunate enough to reside in a 1930’s house surrounded by a beautiful garden that inspires me daily. Today, the Japanese maple hypnotized me so that I thought it I would try to mimic its beauty with a lovely handmade sweater I found while working in New York last month.
