Yes, I was complaining about heavy jackets and static (blah, blah, blah) and I was beyond ready to break out my sundresses and flip flops (which I still find a million times more comfortable that jeans and a static filled sweater) back in February, but now that I've practically worn holes in every sundress, skirt and tank top that I own I'm ready to move on to the next season. Which hopefully will be a true fall with mild temperatures and a few months of crisp and cool days before winter comes blowing in.
It has been so hot this summer that even a tank top and shorts don't provide much comfort or reprieve from the heat. I'm not even sure of the last time that I wore shoes other than flip flops because the heat causes my already chubby feet to swell to the point that they begin to spill out of any strappy sandals that I might attempt to wear nearly cuttting off the circulation to my lower appendages (namely my piggies). And wearing some of my favorite jewelry like big, chunky rings isn't so fun either when said items end up stuck on my fingers. For of you that don't know, I'm an accessories kind of girl all the way.

Just looking at some of the clothing and boots makes me sweat right now but lately I find myself spending more and more of my "me time" sitting in front of the computer looking at page after page of the new fall trends and must have items.
Here is the Pantone color palette for fall:
Here are a few of the items on my "Must Have List" for fall:
|"Smokestack" boots from Spool No. 72|
|The RockStar superskinny denim in Honeycomb from Old Navy|
|Essie nail polish in Mesmerized|
|Handbag from Express|
And while I'm at it, here are a few things for the kids (because as you know I actually enjoy shopping for them even more than I do for myself).
|Shirt, skirt and headband from Persnickety Clothing|
|Girls' Roxie shoe from Livie and Luca|
|Spade print long sleeve shirt from Fore!!Axel and Hudson|
|Boys' Rex shoe from Livie and Luca|
How can you NOT want to shop for fall with all of this deliciousness out there??? Now here's to hoping that we actually get to experience fall before we have to cover this cuteness up with bulky winter coats and snow boots!
