Now that the longest day of the year is over...

I can say that I'm 99% ready for fall.

I'll go ahead and just turn in my basic card early this year. I'm ready for cool air, dark nights, colored leaves, and bouquets of freshly sharpened pencils.

I know.

Summer is just starting this week, officially. I've been on summer break since May 26th, and it seems like "spring" comes later and later each year. We have maybe one week of pleasant 70-degree weather in May, then a day of 45-degree weather, one more 70-degree day, and then it's 95-degrees for two months.

Or maybe more than two months. We're only 2 weeks into this 90-degrees every day thing. At least it's not humid, but I don't know that I've disliked summer more than I've disliked it this year.

Every time I walk past the outside shed that has all of the fall decorations stored away in it, I get anxious for the day when I can get them out. That's completely insane, right?

Also completely insane is that it was kind of momentous that I had to put on actual clothes yesterday because I had somewhere to be.

I haven't taken a picture in awhile. Note the farmer's tan. 
*The purse is new from Nordstrom Rack. It's Marc by Marc Jacobs and is the perfect size for everyday use. I can also just stuff it in my big tote bag if I'm going to work (not that I've been to work recently). I love it. It was worth every penny.
*Sandals are Target, last year. 
*Shorts are Old Navy, 3 years ago (buy Old Navy shorts, they are the best shorts)
*Tank is Gap, this spring, and this was the only color offered (blue/red...that I'm wearing with black shorts) and I would have ordered 7 more if they had different colors. I love it. 

I suppose I'll miss the opportunity to wear gym shorts every day when mid-August comes around. But real clothes is a small price to pay for having something to do each day.

How about you? Ready for summer to be over?


  1. I like that shirt!! I'm ready for summer and bringing the kids around having fun, but it's also hot and I feel wet all the time from the humidity here. Blech. I miss Colorado summers.

  2. I love the Marc Jacobs purse! I lol'ed about getting dressed since you actually had somewhere to be. #teachersummerlife :) I will say, since today is our last day of school (about a month later than you), I'm in no way ready for Fall!

  3. It's not my favorite season. I'm hoping to enjoy it more this year since I'll be at the shore more.

  4. You know how I feel about the mythical "summer" season in SE Alaska...95 degrees sounds amazing to me!

    Cute new purse!! I just bought a new one, too. 'Tis the week of new purses, apparently!

  5. I love Old Navy shorts, they really are the best!

  6. I'm ready for fall, too! I can usually handle (dry) heat pretty well, but I'm so over these 110-120 degree days & it's only June. We still have about 4 more months until it really cools down here in the Phoenix area. :(

  7. Cute outfit. But no, not ready for summer to be over at all (as much as I do love fall!). I have quite a bit of planning to do for school before I'm ready to get back to it! :)

  8. I'll take colorado heat without the humidity that missouri throws in with theirs anyday. Its just plain sticky here and icky!
