The Month of August

Dear August,
I really dislike you. There I have said it. This is my most hated month of the year.
I am tired of being hot, and cooped up in the house. I am tired of wearing almost nothing everyday.
I long for sweaters and boots, jeans and layers.
August, you tease me with all this new fall fashion but yet none of it is available until my beloved September.
I want cool evenings to sit outside, I want smells of fall to fill my days. I dream of opening windows and turning off this air conditioning.

August please go quickly and take the heat with you.

This is the month I start drooling over fall fashions and lusting for the best fall accessories.
I did find the most comfortable sweater, Free People. It is like having the softest cotton nubby blanket wrapped around you.

Lust, this Fendi bag
Reality, this Vintage carpet bag from Finland.

Purchased on Etsy.

I know it will be almost November before my Fall comes but at least once August is passed it will start slightly cooling down under 100*, which will lead to cooler evenings :)

Girlfriend, I feel your pain. I have stopped complaining of the desert heat. I give up, it's hot and it's just not fun being outside at all.

Come on pool!!! Come on Fall!!!

Well, I actually prefer the bag you got, it's darling!
I'm a Fall girl all the way, of course you know this by now.........I dream of crisp cool days of sunshine and falling leaves, I dream of the nights getting longer and starting fires in the fireplace.
I'm off to check out that adorable sweater!
Have faith, August will go by in a flash!

Amen!!! I keep seeing all of these fall fashions and everyone is teasing about autumn (looking forward to autumn) on their blogs, and it is 96 degrees here with 100% humidity!!!! I feel like someone slaps me with a hot wet rag every time I walk outside!!! :/

I wanted to stop by and read some of your blog before heading to Tuscaloosa.
