My Plea for Summer

Thursday, August 30, 2012 180 0

Top: H&M Trend. Dress (worn as skirt): Topshop (same style here). Shoes: Boutique 9 Justine. Handbag: Chloe Paddington. Watch: Michael Kors MK5160. Bracelets: Kate Spade Skinny Mini Bow Bangle, BCBG, J.Crew, Forever 21.

 

I am making a plea to Mother Nature. . .please do not take Summer away from me! Β I still want to wear bright colours, fun florals and short skirts. Β I am nowhere near ready for jackets or boots or mittens. Β I promise to be a good girl if you will just give me an Indian Summer this September. Β Thank you for your consideration.

    The colors in this outfit are beyond gorgeous! I love that even though the top was bright, you still went bold on the bottom. I always wear too many neutrals, so you’re my inspiration for today!

    You are living in the wrong direction! You need to move on down to the southern part of the United States. Most times you can still wear summer clothes through November and December!

    Love this look on you- the silhouette is beautiful and the colors are definitely summery!

      Ha ha ha, I totally agree Katie! I have no idea why I live in the North. I think San Diego might have the most perfect all year round weather for me! I need to set my sights on moving there. πŸ™‚

    I love the peplum top and the shape of the skirt together. I’m torn about whether I want summer to end or not!

    You love your peplum, don’t you?! You wear it well! As much as I love wearing bright colors, I am so ready for fall (sorry)! But hey, who says you can’t wear colors in the fall? Maybe you should get some cobalt mittens πŸ™‚

      Ha ha, I definitely love me a good peplum. Yes, ha ha, great idea. . .cobalt mittens are now on my list!

    Ok. I am trying to hold it in and not gasp with delight in the middle of my office like a total crazy fan girl but I LOVE this outfit SO. MUCH. This makes me want summer to stay forever too, and I hate hot weather!! You look fabulous!

    Aww your peplum is so cute! I too am wishing Summer would stay, as it’s hard to go back to work (I’m a teacher)! Enjoy your last few days πŸ™‚

      Oh yes, my Mom’s a teacher too, and she struggles with going back each year. Good luck Maria!

  • Stephanie
    August 30, 2012

    Agreed!!! I am so not ready for summer’s end. Even though I’ll have summer like weather well into October/November since I’m in Florida, the conclusion of August always feels like the end to me. I have been wearing my bright colors as much as possible too. I love this outfit, it’s so bold but totally works on you!

    I hope summer holds out for you, but I love the layers fall brings. So fall can come early in my neck of the woods. Admiring all of those fantastic colors in that peplum top…so beautiful!

    Hi Jenny. You need to move to Florida. I can wear that clothing all year round!

    I’m with the others on this one. You’re killing me with the cobalt blue (my fav) and I have to say that I wish I suited peplums ’cause that one is so pretty…

    Jenny,
    Per usual, I am obsessing over everything you own. I love how your style mixes well chosen high end pieces with carefully curated inexpensive piece. Honestly, if I had the means….my style would more than likely be close to yours! You really inspire me each time I visit your blog! Oh, and Im hoping for an Indian Summer too! Im not ready for fall!
