I love summer, but not so much late summer. My morning walks with Leia are darker, the bugs are big after months of feeding, and I am tired of air conditioning. A cold front came through yesterday and this morning it was a delicious 65 degrees. That’s unheard of in the middle of August!
This weather has made me long for cool, crisp autumn days ahead. Not winter, mind you, autumn. Let’s not rush into Cold so soon. But I long for those chilly Saturday mornings. The ones when you wake up and put socks on as you drink your coffee slowly and think of all the people preparing for a football game. And as the day goes on the sky turns that deep, rich blue you shed your chunky sweater and open your kitchen window and turn on Patty Griffin and spend the afternoon making an apple pie.
Yes, that. That’s what I long for.
In an effort to save some money, I haven’t bought a single thing since May (okay, except for one single dress that I plan to wear to a wedding in two weeks). It’s been a very creative summer trying to mix and match my limited summer decor. So I am extra excited about this new season of layers and the chance to maybe, just maybe, buy Something New.
Here are some of the cozy clothes I have on my wish list this year…
scarf, sweater, bag, pants, books, loafers
Most of the things I picked out are pretty expensive, but maybe I can find similar styles at a lower price? Challenge accepted.
What is on your wish list this fall?
