Even though it’s felt like summer all week in the Bay Area, I have fall on the brain. It might be all the pumpkins and Halloween parties. But it’s probably because of the fall fashions I’m dreaming of wearing.
A long, plaid skirt preferably with petticoats and fringe, sets the scene nicely: I am a guest at a Scottish castle! I’m about to encounter an attractive young man who happens to be hunting on the castle grounds while I lollygag. He will, naturally, be carrying a rifle and wearing rugged boots and a rough hewn hunting jacket. He’ll have a days’ growth of beard and he’ll be smoking a short, thin cigar. When he spies me in my plaid maxi skirt, he won’t bat an eye. He will scoop me up with one arm (in my fantasy I am waifish) up onto his horse. The voluminous skirt will allow me to straddle the horse and, ahem, my new companion. Well. Before this turns into a
soft porn romance novel, let’s leave it at that and shop for some fall skirts, shall we? The short version (the Chloe one above is amazing) are, needless to say, for those not anticipating a ride on a stallion. You gals can begin your romantic fantasy perhaps in front of a roaring fireplace, indoors. Go!
