Summer or Fall?

Top: Swapped (similar #1, similar #2)   |  Shorts: Loft  |  Sandals: c/o Shoetopia (shop)  |  Necklace: Old Navy (similar)  |  Sunglasses: JCPenny

Style bloggers and magazines are already talking about fall fashion, but I'm trying to ignore it.  I swear that last year in San Diego we missed summer...like it was gloomy and 65 the whole time.  And now that summer finally started (in August--better late than never), it'll probably bleed into October.  Plus, I always find myself longing for the next season and hardly enjoying the current one.  SO, I'm trying to enjoy it.  The good news is that everyone is clearing out summer clothes, which means I could buy two pairs of shorts for $10 each in an attempt to embrace summer.

Is anyone else trying to soak up the remains of summer, or are you all feenin' for fall?  (Alliteration not intentional, but I kept it there anyway.  Teehee.)

  7. If you asked me last week Fall couldn't come soon enough (it was 100 degrees). This week however I am loving, it's about 75-80 which to me is perfection!

  12. I'm like you. Everyone is talking about fall, and I AM looking forward to breaking out my scarves and hats again, but I still want more summer! I still want to wear shorts and tank tops for a little while longer. :)

  14. Summer is so short up here in Canada that I won't let go of it until I have to! So I am also a little annoyed with all the layering and extra big cardigans I see everywhere. I will enjoy fall when it's fall. Until then: Shorts!

  16. I love this little ruffly top :) But I have to admit, I am beyond ready for some cooler weather- not winter though. I hate the very cold and the very hot!

  17. I am so torn on the summer/fall thing! I'm actually blogging a little bit about it tomorrow. On the one hand, I'm not ready to give up my summer wardrobe. On the other, it's always fun to freshen up your wardrobe for a new season!

    I live in SoCal so I feel your pain! It's hard to see everyone starting to pull out their fall clothes when we are in shorts here. On the plus side, it is starting to get a little bit cooler at night...maybe we can dress for summer in the day time and fall for night :)

    Cute look!

  21. Oregon has been trying to just never have a summer so... I have no idea. I was FREEZING today after 7 pm and had to wear pants and a sweatshirt while outside teaching my guard kids. Madness.

  22. Speaking of Sunglasses: Do they need to be a similar neutral to the handbag or is it okay to have black sunglasses with a tan handbag?
