I'm just not ready for Fall. This cold feels so foreign and undesired. I know most of you are rejoicing, excitedly piling on cardigans and boots. But the frigid cool blowing in through my still open windows is making me depressed.
Yesterday I ventured out and did things, but not today. I stared longingly at my summer clothes and felt betrayed. It took several cups of coffee and twice through my September magazines before I forced myself into clothing at a late and unmentionable hour of the day.
Even still, the best I could manage was an outfit that might as well be pajamas -- leggings, long loose top, long loose wrap cardigan.
Don't be fooled by the presence of footwear, these were only on during my brief time outdoors for taking these photos and walking the dog.
And after finally getting out of bed, I relocated to the couch and watched Breakfast at Tiffany's. So good. I cry at the end. And her style. Sigh...
I also had an extended battle with blogger and my desire for a second sidebar. It was more challenging than I'd anticipated and now I don't know if I like it. But I suppose any change takes a bit to get used to, so we'll give it a go. Do let me know if it isn't laying out properly for you. I thought it might be nice to have a space to track my purchases and keep track of my monthly budget.
I have a few items to go up there!
Saturday I went to a church fair/tag sale and found a few things at the jewerly table I had to take home. Apparently I have a thing for gold lions, as I instantly fell for this lion crest pin for $1 (going to be so fabulous on my navy blazer!)
and these lion earrings for $3, which I'm not sure I will actually wear as earrings, but rather turn into something else.
I also picked up this skinny grey belt for 20 cents. How could I not?
My most expensive purchase at the fair was a huge bowl of peach shortcake for $5 -- so yummy!!
Then I went to TJMaxx and you will not believe my self restraint!! I only took four things into the dressing room and then only let myself buy two of them. I ended up with a pair of khaki pants for $15,
and this glittery burnout tee for $13.
I'm sad, I wasn't though with my summer wardrobe and am having trouble feeling excited for fall. I did see lots of red pants, fur, and animal prints, which I did rather enjoy. Maybe in a few more weeks I can start to embrace fall, but fingers still tightly crossed for another heat wave.
