So Long, Summer

August 31, 2016

Summer isn't fully over yet, but looking back on the last few months.... it's been a fun one.

Boyfriend and I got in some beach time and went horseback riding, then I finally tried paddle boarding, sat poolside, and celebrated the marriage of my brother and sister-in-law. It has been one for the books and reliving all the memories makes my heart happy.

Unfortunately, summer doesn't last forever around these parts. But year after year, I find myself even more excited about the change from summer to fall. Even though I don't want summer to go, I'm eager for crisp mornings and pumpkin spice anything..... except lattes. (I just totally contradicted myself, I know, ha!) Am I the only one that feels this way?

I still can't quite put my finger on why I welcome the change in season, but it makes me feel like I am sort of starting new. Brightly colored trees, sidewalks covered in leaves that crunch beneath your feet, and a change in wardrobe. Give me all the boyfriend jeans, striped long-sleeve shirts, light jackets and flats. Oh and dark nail polish. (I probably won't be saying this for very long.)

With fall just 3 weeks away, I can't wait to see what these next few months bring! There's already apple-picking in my near future, that's for sure.

I am also excited to bring new outfits to the blog but, in the meantime, here are some of my favorite past fall outfit posts:

These past months have also seen some firsts: my first facial, bikini wax and meditation class. All 3 were great experiences! I'm hoping to add my first skydiving class onto that list very soon, too.

Are you looking forward to fall? What's your favorite thing about the change in season?
