Waning daylight and depleted energy levels conspired against making outfit photos after work in October's penultimate week. Other than that, I've been enjoying these cozy lamp-lit evenings. I've even managed to finish the tedious Elizabeth Gilbert book and start another, altogether lighter and more enjoyable one.
With the mercury yoyoing between 16 and 19°C, which is way above the average temperature for this time of year, there wasn't much to complain about. The weather gods, in a good mood for once, even treated us to a gorgeously sunny day on Wednesday.
Then Thursday came along, bringing stormy weather in the form of tempestuous Aurore. Our umbrellas had a tough job against the torrential rain we'd woken up to and which had only slightly abated by the time we had to leave for work. Drifts of leaves had been swept up and tossed into soggy piles and puddles had turned into minor ponds overnight.
