“Pretty for Fall” or Anytime

My latest ensemble for Gina can be worn anytime, I think.  The color palette is slightly muted and it includes a beret which are fall-ish elements, but you can replace the beret with a hair ribbon and the boots with a pair of shoes and this ensemble could be worn in the spring, couldn’t it?

Gina looks so sweet looking up at me.
