Fall without the golden leaves

Fall Fashion Fall Fashion  

Friday October 19, 2012

As most of you probably have noticed by now, Panama's weather is pretty much hot, sunny, or rainy all year long (sometimes all three at the same time!). That means that we don't get to enjoy those gorgeous orange and yellow leaves for Autumn (which is such a bummer!).

Nevertheless, I still like to pretend its Autumn by decorating the house with pumpkins and other seasonal decorations. It reminds me of how lovely Fall was when I was living in the U.S... I sure do miss those golden leaves!

Do you have Fall where you live?

  1. Marie, your candy corn nails are ADORABLE! I love it! Also love your flowery belt, so cute!


    Fall has become significantly more beautiful since I moved to Tennessee to go to school, I am always amazed by how gorgeous the trees are (and no one else seems to really care!). Glad you're still using pumpkins even if your weather is warm, that's the best part anyway!

  2. Hahaha, I know what you mean! When I lived two years in the U.S., I was constantly amazed at the gorgeous Fall trees; but everyone else didn't seem to care. Glad you liked my candycorn nails Priya! You are always so sweet :)

  4. Hello there! I'm glad you like my pictures, thank you so much! To answer your question, no I don't use light reflectors in my photo shoots (I wish I could!). All I use is my Sony Alpha A350 camera, a tripod, and a timer :)

  6. Aaaawww thank you SOOO much Alexa!!! You are TOO sweet! I am faaaaar from perfect, but I am so flattered to read such kind words from you. It sounds fantastic to have double Fall in California (rather than bitter cold winter). Hope you enjoy the Fall for the both of us!

  7. Lovely autumn colours! <3 I also really love your earrings, they're leaves, right? It's really 100% Fall over here, all the leaves are red/yellow/orange and on the ground instead of on the trees by now, haha ;) It's lovely!

  8. Hello Jody!! Ooohh the fallen leaves sound so preeeeetttyyyyy!!! Green with envy! Hehehe just kidding. To answer your question, yes my earrings are leaves! I didn't notice that I had worn them and that they are so appropriate for the topic I wrote about today. What a coincidence! You have a good eye for details Jody, thanks for all your kind words :)

  10. I like the coral dress. Leaves are pretty, but I don't think they beat your warm weather.

  18. Fall is my favorite, but I do love the beach, and it's rarely beach weather in the Bay Area! I guess we all must make sacrifices for the weather, but you are doing a great job of embracing the fall spirit. Love your nails and pumpkins.

  19.  Hello Jan Miguel! I'm soooooooo sorry it took me so long to answer your comment, I'm kind of behind. Sorry about that! To answer your question, I actually don't use light reflectors for my photoshoots (I wish I had some!). I take all of my photos outdoors with indirect sunlight hitting me. Then I use photoshop to adjust the lighting a bit. I'm flattered that you thought I used light reflectos! hehehe. Have a great day!
