The fashion world moves so quickly. We all seem to be feeling the itch for cool evenings, fallen leaves, and camel coats. Despite the fact that I am looking forward to fall I still am enjoying the endless days of summer. Here in northern California we usually have summer through September. I am not ready to give up on reading Vogue poolside, barbeques with my best friends, and late night rendezvous to Yogurtland.

I am still enjoying wearing sexy simple dresses (like this one from Free People), funky sunglasses, laughing with luscious lilac lips, and letting loose with carefree wavy hair.

The blogging world makes me think of fall all the time when I all I want to do is stop time and stay in the summer. Well at least there is something to look forward to on the grey days to come...

Lovely editorial! In England it's currently cloudy with a bit of rain, and has been so for a while. I yearn for the last few days of summer.

I'm looking forward to fall fashions but like you I don't want summer to just slip away either. I am not looking forward to the below 0 degree nights winter has to offer...ick.

Great inspiration pictures! I agree I want fall to come (and all the subsequent fall fashion) but I'm still trying to wring out all that I can from summer. Have a great summer weekend! :)

There are so many things I love about summer, but this crazy heat we are having here is not one of them! Lovely pictures. I adore those sunglasses!

Dancing Branflake said...

Seriously, this is the best summer I have ever had and I am so sad that blogland is already saying adieu to it. I'm also in Northern California and loving this wonderful weather.

I sooo feel you! Summer's not over yet! I like to think only half of it is... :)

The pictures are gorgeous. That model is so pretty! I love her sunglasses. I'm definitely still loving summer. It's cooler in London these days, but hopefully summer will come back.

Bren said...

It's so true! We're always ready to rush to the next season. I haven't had much time to enjoy the fruits of Summer, but I would like to get in a few things on my list before it's over. I need a beach day, a baseball game and a night at the Hollywood Bowl, and I'll be satisfied.

This weekend I looked up at the trees and realized how palpable the shift in the light has been. So long fair days of July, hello August!
