I’m going to be honest here, and I realize this may be very unpopular, but…I hate fall. No really, I do. Yes, fall fashion is awesome and I’m always excited to switch things up in the wardrobe department. But even then, I would waaaaay prefer jeans and a tee over a nubby sweater. Because, in Seattle, you really need the nubby sweater, and usually under a coat!
In my mind, fall is a very slippery slope into winter. And winter in Seattle seems long. It’s dark (did you know it get’s dark around 4:00 during the winter months…yes, we’re that far north). It’s wet. Do I need to go on?? I don’t even like pumpkin-flavored things. Enough said.
Therefore, in the spirit of wishing for an eternal summer, I’m sharing how I plan on wearing a favorite summer staple into early fall. That staple: this flowing, silky tunic. I love the lace detailing and the fluttering, ruffled edge. It has been perfect paired with jeans and sandals (which is actually how I was wearing it on this 80+ degree day). But I’m already in a seasonal funk, so why store away your favorite pieces just when you’ve finally gotten a chance to wear them? Reimagine this top with the same jeans (easy), then paired with booties and a oversized cardigan during early fall. Add some swinging accessories and it’s almost like your still dancing in that summer sunshine!
Here’s to eternal summer weather. Even though it’s not realistic, I’m ignoring the already changing color of the leaves and the darker mornings…at least for now. When my kids return to school in a week, there will be no more denying fall. But in the meantime, I’ll do my best!
