Why Can't I....

Tuesday, September 12, 2017 3:30 AM

Good Morning!! 
What a weekend I had! It was jam packed with sports, but the weather was absolutely beautiful. Nolan won his football game! They are still so little that usually all of their plays consist of running the ball. Cut to Saturday afternoon, the game was tied up and went into over time. The Rockets had possession of the ball.  They went for it, they tried their one play in which our quarterback throws the ball to the new receiver.  HE CAUGHT IT!!! The coaches rushed the field, it was like they had just won the super bowl! It.was.awesome!  

Which brings me to, why can't I just love Fall? It is just beautiful here in the late Summer, early Autumn months. It is crisp and sunny, the leaves are amazing, we pick apples and pumpkins, Halloween is fabulous, football, our birthdays, Thanksgiving, and let's be honest Fall fashion is my absolute favorite. With all of the amazing things that come with Fall, I just can't help but dwell on the fact that this season is just a prelude to the frigid, never ending winter months.  I mean it is all fun and games until January 1st. That being said, I will challenge myself to live more in the moment and enjoy every bit of this season sans anything pumpkin flavored, no thank you!  

With temps in the early 40s in the morning and 80 by noon, layering is a must. Cardis, dusters, dresses, booties, etc. I love it all! 

Is there anyone out there like me that has an unhealthy aversion to Fall?

  5. I'm a total fall girl (as you know), but I do love summer too. My sister is just like you, though - obsessed with summer and the first sign of a pumpkin in August, I get a text saying "NOOOOOOOO!" . Love the color of those boots!


  6. What a cute story about the football game! Very exciting! You look amazing in this fall look, and you should definitely learn to love fall when you look this great.

  24. What a great look, love it!

  25. I love the long boots with the short dress. The hat is the perfect finishing touch! I always feel a bit sad when Summer comes to an end. The weather in the UK has been pretty awful lately which hasn't made it any more palatable! Thanks for linking up!

  26. I totally understand your feelings about fall! I felt that way even more so when I lived in a true 4-seasons climate because winter is not my jam. That said, your outfit is perfection! Love this dress and cardi combo!
