After the Equinox
There’s a certain time of year you like to come here. Not spring, not July. September is too soon.
You wait for a certain feeling, a shift in the light, and then it’s time to head north.
Sure, you come for the feeling of a homecoming, for the long, glad hugs and invitations to dinner. For the woodsmoke and the deep, earthy scent in the air. For the leaves flaming into reds and purples (sugars trapped in the leaves, you read once) before they let go.
For the youthat you become here and nowhere else.
You pack one bag. Two sweaters.
This one dress in both colors.
Anything else, what you need most, you can’t find until you get here.
Borderlands Dress (No. 5784). Pullover, fit-and-flare style that elongates your figure. Some credit goes to the inverted box pleat below the waist and some to the magical properties of this heathered jersey knit cotton blend, for a bit of stretch and shape through the bodice, waistband, and sleeves. Scoop neckline, empire waist seam. Skirt is a drapey rayon twill with horizontal seaming detail. Below-knee length. Side pockets.Imported.
