Dreaming of Cooler Days


Here in Alabama it is still close to 100 degrees every day, but I cling onto hope that in the next couple of months we will feel a hint of fall. I look forward to trips to the zoo, the Mr. and I's nightly walks around the neighborhood to resume again, and of course fall fashion. You know leggings are my staple, but I do just love the idea of making my summer wardrobe work straight into fall. I pair of cute shorts are still stylish when paired with tights, a simple tee, and a scarf to top it all off. Oh, how I miss wearing scarves. A smart bag to carry pretty books, okay in reality I would be carrying coloring books, but you get the picture. A simple pair of super comfortable flats are a must year round really. I also hope to wear a watch much more often rather than depending on my blackberry, we have such a love hate relationship. Fall I look forward to enjoying you again. You are one of my favorites.

Love it! I know...has it been the hottest summer ever? To hot to play outside. I'm not wishing my life away, but so ready for football weather!

Sadly I have been dreaming of Fall Scarfs since way back in June. http://tiny.cc/8vkgn I guess I was over Summer before it ever really even began! And I can't get over those flats. Been thinking of them since you last posted them. I guess this week I need to buy some!

I am dreaming of cooler weather, too. And am very ready for evening walks around my neighborhood. Collins and I strolled this morning with Tanner (our dog) and it was already so hot at 7:30!

i love fall, but i'm still resistant to getting excited over fall clothes. even though i REALLY want to be.

fall clothes mean the winter's coming ... and it comes a whole lot quicker when you live in toronto!

(also: i concur about the scarves. i miss them too.)

I am having a love affair with m y scarfs right now. After leaving the Midwest 100+ heat and coming home to highs in the 50's I am loving it...but I soon know that I will be snow bound. This is my favorite time,too bad there is no pause button.

I agree fall is so fun! just wish it lasted longer than a week here in Calgary!

Oh girl... I could not survive that kind of heat. I lived in ATL for a couple of years and I seriously could not handle the heat. I remember it being October and I was going to the apple orchard....all excited for fall and I wore a turtle neck (when they were cool, of course -ha) and it ended up being like 80 degrees.
Anyhow, I think you've inspired me to try tights and shorts! It might be the best way for me to wear shorts (hiding my ghostly legs). And love those books.. is there anything better than a gorgeous book?
xoxo happy week to you!
