Cool Air, Do Care


So I'm going to do something sacrilegious and publicly exclaim that I'm excited for fall to come. I know that's borderline illegal/frowned-upon to declare lest I get lumped with all the "basic" girls but I earnestly am really excited! Summer has never been my number one jam, especially more so as I age. What does summer do for me, really? It makes me hot on the jammed city bus on the way into work, it puts me in outfits at the office that are not in line with the freezing air conditioner and it has me doing so many last minute pit stops before meeting with a client to ensure that my face is not dripping wet. Oh - and my most favorite part of the whole season - is sitting in conference rooms, overlooking the Bay Bridge and peering out the window to spy revelers flying kites and windsurfing. The FOMO is real and I don't need that negativity in my life. One of my best friends is a teacher and I repeatedly joke with her that I will unfollow/block her annually during the summer months on account of my jealousy.

But truth be told, I just like colder weather when it comes to clothes. The outfits are better with numerous layers and embellishments. And I love the way it feels to be inside when it's cold outside. I love fall career fashion - it is so the very best. Give me camel-toned briefcases! And dark scarves! Give me soup! And hot tea! And wool blankets! And vampier, darker makeup! Gimme, gimme, gimme.

Unfortunately for me, SF's "summer" is an indian summer and hits September to October. So I have a bit of a wait before we're entrenched fully. However, I still got my scarves at ready and my tea collection sitting right there on the sidelines, waiting to be called in to the game.

What's your favorite season?

I love your choices up there.

Fall is my favorite. Even at the beach, a summer place, it's my favorite.

Girl, your choices are spot on with my style! I love every last thing up there!!! I am with you, summer isn't my number one jam either even though I am a summer baby. I am so glad I am due in the fall during my favorite season. I love everything about fall fashion, fall scents, fall flavors, fall temperatures (ummm when they happen in November down here LOL) and the excitement that builds in the fall as we near the holidays. Just yes to everything!

I like fall until I realize that snow is about to show, blah to that. Although sweating from the heat sure sucks too.

Fall fashions really are the best. My favorite seasons would be fall or spring, just because they're both those happy mediums before it gets too hot or too cold. I've seen so many booties and boots I want this year!

I try to embrace all seasons, but I am really looking forward to autumn and winter this year.

I miss seasons; I'm stuck in a perpetual never ending summer. Sigh. I miss fall fashion. I want to wear knee high boots. I want to wear a sweater. Waaah!!

so, i love summer with all my heart, truly. i love being hot, i love sweating, i love that suffocating feeling of getting in your car when it's been sitting outside for 8 hours. HOWEVER. summer clothes suck. because i don't want to wear tank tops and little shorts when i feel like a whale. i feel better in jeans or leggings, and long sleeve tops. i like scarves. i like jackets! i like being warm, and shorts + tank tops in the summer means i have to stay outside, because going inside will mean freezing. and also, FOMO. try being married to a teacher ;) haha jk. it is super annoying though! my best friend works at a school and she only has to work 2 days a week in the summer and is always asking me to do stuff. it's so annoying!!
that dress is GORGEOUS. it would look beautiful on you!
