A relic of summer… The heat from the sun has now subsided and I’ve been living in sweaters and leggings lately. I mentioned in an earlier post that I sometimes get a little sad when summer says its final farewell. It’s not that I don’t care for fall, I just miss the ease of the summer season and extra long days. This outfit takes me right back to the bulk of those hot days we had this summer. I know it’s too early to feel nostalgic about summer. I’m sure having these photos waiting to be posted doesn’t help me to move on very quickly, huh? I have found that during the summer months I feel the most free and clear minded. When the sun starts to fade it’s like reality is settling back in and I become more goal oriented and focused. Pretty sure I’m not alone in this pattern of thought. Hello, school year conditioning! At times I catch my self calling September the ‘beginning of the year’. Does this ever change? I guess all this is just me experiencing some lingering ‘back to school blues’. So I’ve decided not to fight it. Let’s take a mini trip back to summer, shall we?
I found these funny crop pants from Salvation Army’s major $1 clothing sale right before Labor Day and they were the biggest hoot to wear, especially with the mix of tribal and fish print. Whenever I wear an untraditional piece of clothing in public I get a rush of empowerment.
