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.

    Jenny, So this may be my favorite outfit of yours. I am with you on holding on to the last drop of summer. All of these colors are magnificent and you’ve styled this outfit flawlessly. May I have first right of refusal on this top? πŸ™‚

    I’m feeling you on your plea although here in London we are already in fall temperatures and there is no going back!

    Anyhoo i love that you paired the peplum top with a full skirt as most people go for something bodycon refreshing indeed!

    Lol!!
    Jenny…you crack me up…here I am wishing for cooler weather so that I can wear all my fall clothing πŸ˜‰
    Let’s try to make a deal for a couple of weeks of summer BUT I would like to extend the life of fall too πŸ˜‰
    You look amazing in florals…always lovely.
    And I am so happy to see your paddington bag…I have one too and I just dusted it the other thinking “I really need to use this more” πŸ˜‰

      Ha ha, Martha, you are just so sweet! Ok, I’ll definitely take you up on your summer deal and extend Fall as well. I actually like Fall, it’s just Winter that I hate! πŸ™‚ Yes, definitely use your Paddington! It’s too nice to be sitting in your closet.

    I’m making a plea to GET some warmer weather haha. I know Toronto gets super cold in the Winter so I hear your plea. Maybe this lovely look with help? This has so many of the best summers trends how could it not! I love these colors and this is another great dress you have that you can wear as a skirt. I think I need more of those myself.
