Yesterday was the first day I felt a real chill in the air. Fall is here, ready or not. My thoughts, in order:
1. Yay sweaters!
2. Ugh, it's going to get really cold soon (this is the curse of being married to someone who hates cold weather: the joy of fall is subsumed by the dread of impending winter).
3. I get to wear my new Barbour jacket THAT FITS. Huzzah!
A little-known but amazing tip: Barbour, the British barn jacket maker, will add extra length to the sleeves of any of its waxed cotton jackets, a perfect fall jacket. (They can't add length to the quilted jackets, but hey, let's be happy for what we're getting, right?) I got measured in-store when I was visiting New York City, but I'm sure you could measure yourself and order over the phone. I got mine at the Soho store and the folks there couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Tall ladies (and men!), your chilly wrists are welcome. And regular-sized people, enjoy not paying extra for custom length.

PS: Chicagoans, we're getting a Barbour store here soon!
