Is it fall yet?



Divas, save me from denial.

A couple weeks ago I felt the first hint of fall weather in the breeze. Nevermind that the chill was gone by the time the sun came up. In my mind, FALL HAD ARRIVED!

I turned off the A/C in my apartment and opened all the windows, stubbornly leaving them that way even as sweat beaded on my forehead while watching Cake Boss. "LA LA LA LA I don't notice you, Florida heat! You do not exist!"

After another sweltering weekend, sigh, I've got to face reality. Full-fledged fall weather is still but a dream. (I'll also take this opportunity to apologize to my roomate for The Day We Lived in a Sauna. Sorry, Rach.)

The point is, I'm sick of this heat. I'm sick of all my shorts and flip flops and tank tops and being smelly. But I'm going to try my darndest to accept reality while also finding a way to embrace the new season.

First item on the list: A pair of shorts that do not belong on the beach.

I'm envisioning them with a simple white tee or one of Tucker for Target's new flowery blouses.

OR you could really go texture crazy with a lightweight denim button down... like the top I recently snagged for less than $20 at Tarjay.

I can't wait to roll down the sleeves and tote it around during those first few cool days, in place of a sweater.




 Finally, the footwear. Give me a shoe that hides my chipping polish for a change.

I've been coveting a pair of oxfords for awhile now, but haven't bought any because the thought of wearing socks the past few months made me want to jump in our dinky pool and never come out.

Good things come to those who wait.

Sigh, and so we will.
