Even as the lights are hung, the sun shines on in supervision.

Its persistence can be contagious.

Taken in January, the closest the west coast gets to a fall season.

It’s been cool here on the west coast, which is kind of nice, since fall is my favorite season. It’s got me thinking of cardigans, scarves, and football. It’s always at least 10 degrees cooler at the beach than it is ‘inland,’ and as I’m driving to work in the morning I can see the cloud cover at the coast as I near. In fact, the weather forecasters always provide three forecasts for the southland: the beaches (too “cold”), the valleys (too “hot”), and downtown (juuust right).

I was talking with a California-native friend recently and I found myself telling her about fall in New England- apple picking, crunchy colored leaves, crisp air, hot apple cider, boots with tights and skirts. And did I mention football? Since moving to CA, my ‘always dress in layers’ wardrobe hasn’t exactly reflected the change in locale. It should really include slouchy dresses, cotton skirts, more sandals. More than one bathing suit. More than one pair of sunglasses. Can you tell I haven’t been shopping in a long while?!

Tim is a new superhero, fighting fashion crimes. Fabulous.

And he tells Jon Stewart about the ridiculous weather in LA on last night’s Daily Show.
