Fall is coming!

30th August 2012

I have definitely been forcing it with my wardrobe during these last days of summer; wearing cardigans over long sleeved tops and trying to pair scarves with just about anything.  These past few days have been amazing, though!  Low humidity, cooler at night, my kind of weather!  How excited am I that I can wear jeans AND boots at the same time and not be hot!?  Pretty darn excited, I tell ya.  Now if only it was cool enough to start wearing sweaters…
