Ok. Not to sound like a total melancholic, harbinger of autumn but I just feel as though summer is over. Albeit, I have two more events to look forward to before I can really say that summer’s done, my birthday and a quick trip to vegas, but those too seem to be fast approaching. In fact, if I don’t get my passport picture done today, I’m barely making the deadline to renew the damn thing before leaving in a few weeks. Another thing that gets me on a one track mind to changing leaves and cinnamon lattes is this cursed humidity, suffocating us beneath an overcast sky. Where did the blue sky go? And why does a slick filmy sheet of moisture cover me from head to toe after 5 minutes outside? This isn’t summer anymore – it’s a leftover crap of sorts from June and July that makes us crave air conditioning and a cool breeze.
Here’s the worst part of it all. Slowly fashion bloggers are starting to tweet, blog, post and hype all the cool fall looks of the fast-approaching season. This morning Caroline’s Mode posted photos from a quick shopping trip to Natalie Schuterman, a store in Stockholm I’m assuming (why can’t we have stores like that here?), capturing all their fall pieces. That’s when I saw them: two suede Balenciaga first bags, one in brown and one in green.
I just want to grab a gigantic cable knit sweater, a long missoni scarf, wool leggings, a fresh pair of leather riding boots and my Gaudet fingerless (aka homeless man) gloves to pair with these fall bags, right about now. Well, maybe in a week…
