Late summer layers


It may officially be fall as of two days ago, but the weather here has been decidedly August-like. I’m over it. By the end of September, I expect temps in the 70s to low 80s. Definitely not 90s. Nooo thank you. I keep telling myself not to complain too much because once snow comes around, I’ll be dreaming about the nice weather! But seriously, I’m ready to break out my ankle boots. I actually wore my black ankle boots on Sunday, and when I pulled them out of the closet, they were covered in dust. I had to dust my boots, guys.

Anyway, I’ve been waiting for the perfect day to wear this outfit, but the days have either been too hot or nice but rainy. (I have a bad habit of waiting for the ideal day to wear certain outfits. Most of the time those days never come, and why not wear an amazing outfit when you want to feel amazing?!) I gave in even though the temp flirted with 90 degrees. It ended up not being a dumb decision because I didn’t leave my office all day. (It’s crunch time, you guys. I realized I had to change my data around so I spent all day yesterday fixing the code and getting everything to look right…only I’m not sure if it still looks right. Awesome. Make sure you really love what you’re doing before you go to grad school, haha.)

I keep digressing from the outfit! I have too much going on to keep my train of thought on the same track. (Was that weird to say…?) Anyway, I’m happy that I finally found the white, collared, sleeveless shirt I’ve been searching for, and this was the first outfit I thought to wear with it. Grey, white, and black–such an easy and obvious color combination for this time of year!

    • Haha, thank you! Though my skirt is a liiitle bit on the short side…oops. 🙂 No one said anything to me though, and luckily I don’t remember flashing anyone today! Oh man, it’s been so hot…but I think fall is showing up today (Saturday) finally!

  1. I love this outfit! Preppy, put together, and fabulous. While I’m really looking forward to sweaters and boots, I’m also enjoying the fabulous weather. It feels like summer, and it looks like fall – the best of both worlds! And I do the exact same thing with my outfits, saving ones that I really like for that perfect occasion, which often never comes.

    • Thank you for saying that!! 🙂 I’m totally with you regarding the weather, or at least I’m trying to be more appreciative of the warmth. It’s hard when I feel like I’m melting in my apartment, but soon–like this weekend–fall will be here! (And it’ll be rainy for a few days straight… I’m sure at the end of it I’ll be complaining about that, haha.)
