Hello all and happy Saturday! As I said in my post for my Pineapple Party outfit, “shortalls = life” and I have yet to turn my back on that statement. In my enthusiasm for my new motto, I put together this 3 ways to style my main squeeze.
Yesterday when I was picking out my outfit I came across my trusty old American flag sweater and experienced what I like to call the ‘autumn blues’. The autumn blues are that feeling you get when you realize all of those awesome fall things that you’re missing out on because the weather isn’t appropriate enough for you to enjoy them. These awesome fall things include, but are not exclusive to, vanilla chai tea, chunky scarves, knit tights, peacoats, muted tones of everything, pumpkin spice lattes, and the amazing comfort of sweaters. So, when I picked up that sweater I had a vision of wearing it with a nice pair of shortalls, a black scarf, and some black tights right before my A/C kicked on reminding me that summer is still going strong and leaving me with a case of the autumn blues.
Of course, I wasn’t going to let that hold me back and if I couldn’t have autumn, I figured I might as well enjoy a piece from my autumn collection and wear this delightfully bright sweater. The nearly neon green is just the right kind of fun for the summer and the looser knit has kept me from experiencing too many problems with the heat. Most importantly, I’m getting that refreshing touch of fall in my outfit and that’s enough to keep me going until it gets cool again.
Are any of you guys experiencing the autumn blues and, also, what’s you’re favorite thing about fall?
On a scale of 1 to 10, I’d rate my love for shortalls at about a solid 15. They’re quickly becoming my favorite summer item in my wardrobe, which I personally find to be an odd discovery because I’ve never actually been a fan of wearing shorts. Despite that, I find shortalls to be particularly wonderful. They’re effortlessly casual, the straps are adjustable (which is a plus in any item of clothing wear for me), and tend to have a lot of pockets. They’re pretty much one of the best purchases I’ve made this summer.
