fall is fast approaching. what’s on my radar screen? let’s take a look.
the calendar clearly states that there’s still 6 weeks of summer left. but then i read there are only 147 more days until christmas… which definitely gave me pause.
although we aren’t ready to close out 2017 anytime soon it’s hard to believe the year is more than half over. last saturday i bopped into pier 1 and was greeted with halloween and fall decorations. it’s clear that retail definitely has fall on its mind so who am i to argue?
today’s ootd definitely has one foot squarely fixed in autumn. take a look at these cute suede booties. but this sleeveless striped tee is firmly rooted in summer. and the jacket? well, it’s lightweight twill which makes it a versatile layering piece year round. okay, almost year round.
it’s hard to believe but i guess you’d say today’s ootd is fall’s first call. and while the temps may bounce back and forth the next month or two between summer and fall (just like my outfit) it’s safe to say time is marching on whether we like it or not.
don’t worry, as i mentioned there’s still 147 days before christmas. plenty of time to get our lists together and check it twice. i don’t know about you but i’m pretty sure i haven’t been too naughty this year. in case i have (been naughty that is) there’s still time to turn things around. so here’s to monday, a brand spanking new week, and august. my favorite month of the year. it is my birthday month after all. i’ll turn 59 soon which may be one reason time is on my mind. this coming year will be my swan song to an entire decade. i can’t wait!
in the meantime, let’s make today a good one. happy monday, ladies!
