I have to admit to myself that summer is over. I don’t want to let it go. (I’m not a pumpkin spice latte girl *gasp*). I don’t want to be cold, I don’t want to have the flu. I wear scarves year round, so that’s not exciting. Layering is not always flattering on me…(I tend to look more bulky than I actually am) and well, I don’t do flannel at all. I don’t want to deal with gray skies and possible snow. Does anyone?
I am clinging on to every last shred of summer. I refuse to start wearing boots, booties, stockings, tights, undershirts (to me, those long sleeve tees) and other warm clothes. I love a chunky fisherman’s sweater just as much as the next girl, but come on. I don’t want to let it go.
My mom is coming to town this weekend. She’s been in chunky sweaters and warm flannel pajama pants for weeks now, and asked “What clothes should I bring for the weekend?” Well, Mama’s gonna have to be bringing some sundresses for this 80 degree and sunny weekend. Poor woman, she just put all those clothes away in the back of her closet…
As for today’s outfit. I wanted to wear this skirt so bad to say goodbye to my all time favorite season. But I have to realize that I should start slowly transitioning into fall. Yet when I was planning it out on a hanger last night (tell me you do that too!), I panicked. So I picked up the trusty pink phone and snapped a pic, sent it to my fashionista student over at From Farm To Fab. She approved/disapproved. Gave me suggestions based on what she knows I own, and told me two possible transition outfits with this skirt. Today’s outfit is option one. Option two will be in a few weeks- got to cycle the skirt out, let people forget about it, then bring it back.
I get so many compliments on this skirt. And to be completely honest with you, I don’t know if I am quite sold on it. Am I crazy? The water color design is pretty darn awesome, I will admit that much…
Had to chop out the head- sorry. I’m battling a cold before it starts – that burning, watery, itchy eye syndrome that starts before a sneeze? Yeah, I’m dealing with that all day. Not a pretty sight. Oh and I have glitter all over my face- I don’t know where the glitter came from, it just appeared.
Happy Tuesday. See you all tomorrow for Happy Wednesday!
