You Know What They Say

For the past couple weeks, I have been seeing so many bloggers wearing all their cute fall outfits with cozy boots, sweaters and scarves, and I have so been wanting to bust out my boots and scarves, but it is still way too hot to really be wearing more than skivvies.  (I actually got sunburn the other day from our walk at 8am; yes, I was wearing more than just my skivvies.)  I have been wishing that the weather would cool down enough so I can be all cute and cozy in my layers and really enjoy the crisp, fall season.  But if you know even just one thing about me, then you know that I don't do cold weather.  So as soon as the temperatures actually do start to dip, I know I will be kicking and screaming and begging for the sickening heat again.  You know what they say - "the grass is always greener on the other side," and "you always want what you don't have;" so even though the chilly days look appealing right now for layering purposes, I know that once they get here, I will want to (immediately) go back to the other side, where the weather is warmer.
Moral of the story - just be happy with what you got and quit yer bellyachin'.

  21. Love the outfit! And I completely agree with you about the weather. It's still in the 90's here so I'm still wearing summer clothes which are my fav, but I am a little jealous of the girls who can wear their layers and boots. But I also know those same girls who can wear true fall fashion right now will also be suffering through bitterly cold winters and I'm allllll set with that ;0)

  22. I love this look, but I especially like the contrast with the setting!

  31. Oh thanks!
    I LOVE this outfit, the short is so great & the shoes...OMG!
    I'm wondering, how tall are you ?
    Because I would love to wear some shoes like yours, but I'm too tall :(.

  32. Hi Kate! Thanks so much!!! I lie and say I'm 5'8" - but I'm technically 5' 7 3/4" :) You know, I know taller girls always feel a little awkward wearing heels, but I think there is nothing better than when a tall girl embraces her height and rocks the highest heels possible with confidence!!! :)
