why it needs to cool off, version 435

i have officially hit the summer plateau. the point i hit every summer where i am completely convinced it will NEVER be cool again. this happen to anyone else?

i'm sitting here sweating just THINKING about how hot it is outside...and dreaming, longing for fall. leaves on the ground, football on the tv...and fall clothes on my body.
it started with this gorgeous boyfriend cardi i got in the mail from old navy yesterday....for all of $11, i couldn't resist...and the color is GORGEOUS. i wanna wear it with skinny jeans, a tank and boots asap. and some cute gold earrings. but NOOOOO, it's a bazillion degrees right now and i got hot just trying it on!!

and then, tulle sends me an email about a sale. tulle, of the gorgeous coats and awesome prices....i already have 3 of their jackets, one mustard peacoat i wear ALL the time and 2 plaid portrait-neckline ones.

so of course....
i got this, in ivory. for TWELVE DOLLARS. i love the cropped sleeves...and i got a dress and a coat for the hubs. go to tulle's website and click on "sale" to score a deal for yourself!! but be warned....that wait while a coat sits in your closet and you feel like you're gonna melt is BRUTAL.
i also got this pin from anthro, mostly because it's awesome. i'm thinking pinned on cardis, maybe on some ribbon for a belt...maybe on a length of chain like a necklace. LOVES IT!!! and this i can at least wear right now, unlike my other purchases that will wait...and wait....and wait....

i need a closet pep talk with myself...."hayley, tanks are good. so are shorts. in no time at all, you'll be longing for warm sun when it's grey and gross and windy and rainy and cold. and it won't snow...it'll just sleet. so enjoy exposing those arms and legs while you can...it'll be gone soon."

nope, still want fall.

Totally with you on fall clothes. So many more options! I just love coats, scarves, hot coffee, boots, and all the things that signify fall and winter. In California, though, it's pretty moderate all year round, and we don't quite have "seasons." But it does still get cold enough in the winter months for all my favorite apparel!

Oh yes. I'm there right now. And I've been taunted by pictures of beautiful cardigans this week that I don't need yet, so I'm trying to resist buying them prematurely.

And that was supposed to be "the urge to buy". Apparently the English language is not my strong point today.

i want fall too. i don't even own a pair of shorts and i am from st. george ut, aka the face of the sun.

i want boots and light scarves and jackets, but i don't really want anything colder than that.

i'm jealous of your purchases. jealous to death.
