We had a fabulous Labor Day weekend. Saturday, we went to the shore (natch) and on Sunday? It rained. I mean the heavens opened and it poured. Great, big, fat, sopping-wet raindrops. And we loved it. We splashed in puddles (Pax rolled in them) and then we all came inside for hot chocolate and pancakes. A perfect way to welcome September.
Raines starts pre-school week after next, and already my mind is turning to cool nights, crunching leaves and that slightly smokey smell of Fall air. Ooooo....so excited.
However, the temps are staying firmly in the 80's over here. With cah-razy humidity. So here's what I've been wearing to satisfy my Fall cravings, without drowning in sweat.
Swap Cut-Offs For Cold-Weather Shorts, Add Booties
You know I love my cut-offs. But on days when I'm really craving Fall, I swap 'em out for something more substantial. Personally, I love faux-leather (mine were $15 from Forever 21), but a cool tweed short would also work. Add ankle boots for a perfect early-Fall pairing.
My boys have suddenly turned crazytown. They never, EVER, stop.
Try Lightweight Scarves + Strapless Necklines
Wear a strapless sundress during the 80 degree days, then bust out a lightweight scarf for happy hours at the beer garden. Man, we're going to be sad when Morgan's Pier closes for the season.
(wearing: DVF strapless dress, Echo designs scarf, Salt sunnies)
You gotta love a place where you can order grilled broccoli and corn-on-the-cob for the kids (for, uh, $3?) and where this kind of behaviour is totally acceptable:
We heart iPads for happy hour. It's OK - you can judge. We have too much fun to care. (Besides, I know no one is really judging. Us Mamas are a supportive bunch.)
Flannel Shirts + White Pants
I kinda love this pairing. It works best for cool summer nights. A cozy plaid, sleeves rolled, with white pants and heels.
Mamas, what are you wearing to welcome in Fall? Spill! A gal can never have too much inspiration...
