Summer is by far my favorite season. Most folks that live around here will tell you how lovely fall is, and I guess that can’t be denied. However as the days get shorter and the temperatures start to drop I can’t help be feel a bit sad.
While most of you are thinking about boots and chunky warm sweaters, I’m still wearing my sleeveless dresses, closing my eyes and savoring the last bit of my favorite season.
So my friends, tell me how you are feeling about the approaching chill in the air?

Ah, mid-September, what a beautiful season you are, the light has a dramatic amber glow, the leaves are just starting to change color and the temperatures are totally Schizophrenic.
One minute it’s 60 degrees and the next it’s 80. Time for layers, layers and more layers.

Rules, schmules, no one is gonna tell me what to do. Not only am I sporting white pants, but I’m also wearing white shoes. And you know what?….the sky did not fall in. Who knew.
Maybe it’s because I have on my lucky fishy necklace….
He may be projecting me from “rule breaking harm”.

This skirt was a TJ Maxx find. I’m loving all the color options that I have to pair with it: black ( always good, limey green, purple and turquoise blue ) the options will be endless.
These kitten heel sandals are the perfect shade of green. Don’t you just love when that happens. Karma baby, karma.

Shorts are frowned upon at my office, but I figured these are long enough that I could pull it off.
I didn’t get tossed out of the place, so I guess they’re okay:)

My friend showed up at work recently wearing this super cute skirt, and the moment I saw it I knew I needed one to call my own. She had purchased it a few weeks prior at TJ Maxx.
So on my next day off I was on a mission. My local TJ’s only had a large, (insert sad music). I politely asked the nice lady at the service desk if she would kindly call a few stores in our area and see if they had it in my size. Well lo and behold a store about 25 miles away had it and put it on hold.
It really is so very, very “me”, and I’ve managed to wear it about 5 times already.
Have you ever seen something on someone else and knew that you could get a whole lot of use out of it? Do any of you have the dreaded “clothing envy”? I believe it might be the eighth deadly sin:)

Summer is my all-time favorite season! I have no business living here in New England where summer is about 2.4 seconds long. So, with Labor day weekend looming on my horizon I’m taking this opportunity to wear my white summer stuff. I know, I know, that ” no white after Labor day rule” is old and no longer worth listening too, but old habits die-hard my friends.
I’m just going to sit here and think more about these silly old fashion rules.
What are your thoughts on white shoes and such after Labor Day? I’d really love for you all to talk me out of it.

I hope that all my east coast friends are safe and that the damage from hurricane Irene was minimal. My blogging this week is going to be spotty, as it’s difficult to blog and also deal with wind and rain, a frightened dog, and a temperamental computer. But rest assured I’ll be visiting all of you and seeing what you’ve been up too.
I felt quite lady-like today in this outfit. Perhaps it’s the full skirt, or maybe it’s the beads, or even still the cardigan. But whatever it was I really had that Donna Reed vibe going on.
