As soon as there is a whiff of autumn in the air, I immediately start to gravitate towards the "Black" section of my closet. Even though it is still technically summer and temperatures are still warm, by the middle of August, my brain is already thinking of fall. Maybe working in an academic environment does that to you - you begin to think of September as the start of your new year, rather than January. The temperatures have become more conducive to wearing what I call "real clothes" and I took the opportunity to get out one of my pairs of swishy pants. Swishy pants, for the uninitiated, are pants that are loose and flowy, and "swish" dramatically around your legs when you walk (or when there is good breeze).
