Fall Fast Forward

by Jessica Sturdy on July 12, 2012

These scorching temperatures have me day-dreaming about fall as I’m sweating my way around the city. Luscious layers, cozy cardigans, statement scarves, dark denim, and beautiful leather boots. I can taste the apple cider and pumpkin spice lattes already! I have a major thing for fall… Like the biggest crush. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… I wish I could live in a perpetual state of fall. Leaves on the sidewalk, pumpkin everything, football, cooler temps… There’s nothing better! I could not be more excited to experience fall in NYC, I’ve heard it’s the best time of the year here! :)

Oh my god… I’ve converted to the dark side already. Oops?

I had to laugh when I saw the title of your blog post. Just last night I was on Pinterest and saw SO many cute Fall outfits… and then I had to remind myself that we wait ALL year on summer and I need to just enjoy it and stop thinking about cooler weather!!! All that to say, you’re not alone, and I love your picks :)

Love that faux leather peplum top – I saw it online the other day and have it bookmarked so I can stalk it until it goes on sale!! :)

I have been dreaming of fall also, your not alone! I was thinking the other day while sporting my 12 neon item I own..
“I probably won’t be able to sport the neons in fall”
Not sure how I feel about that!

I do not want the summer to go by any faster than it already is, but your fall picks are adorable. I’ve been eyeing those boots for ever now, and I will have to make them mine this September!

A girl after my own heart….hope you’re enjoying NYC!

I feel the same way about fall! And I think I need that leather trimmed blazer.


Minela July 12, 2012 at 4:54 pm

I completely agree, I love fall. I live in Houston so its always a welcome time of year when we don’t sweat our butts off! :)

I don’t how I like the leather peplum blouse though, i don’t think I’d wear a leather shirt, it seems too constricting.

We’ve had no rain and 90+ degree weather for almost six weeks and it’s not even August – I’m with you! Over summer! Fall is so much more fun anyway, and I love decorating for Halloween! Love that leather peplum!


MJ July 12, 2012 at 7:48 pm

I love the blazer with the leather!! I completely love the classic look. Your description of fall definitely makes me want it to be cooler temps ASAP.


Zhanna July 12, 2012 at 8:48 pm

As much as I love summer fall is my favorite season. I love the beautiful colors of the season, the holidays, and the cute fall clothes. Thanks for sharing!

I totally agree! Love fall for all the things you mentioned. I actually visited NY last October with a friend and it was absolutely perfect! Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte in the morning and walking around with leggings, boots, and sweaters in Central Park, beautiful leaves everywhere! You will love it so much! If I could freeze time and live in NY during a never-ending fall, I would be content.


Sarah July 13, 2012 at 2:22 pm

LOVE this post! I have huge crush on fall as well and your description of the season was dead on! <3


Megan July 19, 2012 at 12:05 am

Yes! Yes! I was just saying that I can’t wait for fall so I can break out my scarf collection again.


Audrey July 21, 2012 at 8:52 pm

I am so with you on that! I have already bought a couple of pair of leather western boots and some Miss Me jeans — my uniform for fall and winter! Also picked up some burn out tees on clearance but in fall colors. Although I do love all my light, fun summer outfits, I am sick of being soaked with sweat. Uck!
