As much as I love pumpkin everything, Halloween, cornucopias, and other glorious displays of autumn splendor, and as anxious as I am to trade my maxi dresses, t-shirts, shorts, mini skirts, and flat sandals for cool boots and cozy sweaters in colors of the fall foliage, I am still sporting something similar to this on any given weekend:
