This summer was a 7 out of 10. Not terrible, but not spectacular, either. The intense heat took a bit of the wind out of my sails. The good news is that I’m looking forward to fall.
In our house, Labor Day is like New Year’s since school starts the following day. And the start of school is the real beginning of a new year. We’ve bought notebooks and Adidas and pulled out uniform skirts—the final countdown has begun.
I love these early fall weeks as we transition into cooler weather. Like the photo above, a sweater and sandals, a summer holdover, is my favorite way to dress. Fisherman knits are back at the tippy top of my list and I’m sure I’ll be posting on them often. Peacoats, too.
