It’s fall’s first What I’m Wearing Now post, guys! Everybody is all “pumpkin spice sweater weather!” the second September hits, but in truth, it was still summer until last Friday. And at least here in Chicago, it felt pretty summery (hello 93 degrees this weekend!) until today, aside from some cool days earlier in the month. I am not complaining about the heat, mind you. I think it is magnificent. But the back-and-forth temps did make getting dressed a little challenging – hence the extreme mix of seasonal pieces you see here.
There have been days I’ve worn a lightweight tank and cut-offs, and then needed to pull out jeans and a sweater the next morning. (And as much as I adore summer clothing, I have not minded wearing these jeans on the regular. I’m into them.) More often than not I’ve worn these shoes this month, regardless of whether I was decked in full on summer garb or more cozy fall pieces.
I’m a very casual dresser, but I’m looking forward to dressing up a little more in October (our wedding anniversary, a wedding, and a party are all in the works). And while I’m not ready to say goodbye to my summer wardrobe (I never am), it will be nice to get to layer again. What have you been wearing this month?
