Snoozing Summer

As we start to round out the summer and one of my favorite months of the year (#BirthdayMonth), I’m getting so unbelievably nostalgic for the summer season. I don’t know what’s gotten into me this year. Typically, I start the fall countdown sometime in… oh, I don’t know, February? Football, pumpkin picking, fall fashion, chunky sweaters, leather, dark nail polish, pumpkin anything & everything, fall foliage… The list could go on and on and on and on. Most of the time, these are all of my favorite things and I can’t wait to dive face first into a pumpkin pie the season. But something is off this year. As much as I love fall, I really wouldn’t mind if it never came. This summer has been one of the busiest, but also one of the best. It’s just flown by far too quickly though. It feels like just yesterday I was writing my summer bucket listย and now I’m gearing up for Labor Day and NYFW. I feel as if I’m holding a handful of sand and the harder I try to hold on to it, the faster it goes away. You know what I mean? It’s almost like snoozing the alarm clock in the morning… Give me just a few more minutes, summer! Pretty please! Just 5 more…

Like the dweller that I am, I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite outfits that I was wearing last August. As I mentioned yesterday, I know the blog has been a bit quiet over the past few weeks so let’s just take a little trip down memory lane, shall we?

    So many great looks! I wish Madewell would bring back the glitter Frankie pump this season! So bummed I didn’t snag a pair when they still had them!

    My favorite is the last one! Hehe! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I agree… I don’t want summer to end. Ever. It’s so upsetting! Maybe it’s because this summer was on the cooler side!

    Hope all is well!

    Love your style and so many great outfits. Thanks for the inspiration. It was hard to pick one so I made all of them my favorite. Love the fact that your style is so versatile and very unique as well.

    So many great looks! Those “pajama” shorts are my absolute favorite! Thankfully I’m lucky enough to work in an office environment that I can wear something like them! Sooooo comfy.

    Just pinned more than half of these. SO cute! I definitely know what you mean about summer slipping away way too fast this year. I’ve been working my butt off and have barely stopped to just take in the season. Oh well. Onward!

    I love that floral maxi dress outfit! And like you, I’m kind of not really ready for fall this year. I don’t know why, but I could really go for another few weeks of summer. Then again that throwback to the Ann Taylor event and that “leopard” pattern from last fall is kind of helping soften the blow….
