Is it bad to say that I’m a bit relieved that summer is over? It’s been great with sunny warm days, but summer will never be my favorite season. I much prefer spring and autumn, it’s funnier to dress up when it’s not extremely hot (or cold for that matter). I’ve only done one outfit post this summer and I miss it. Hopefully this Autumn will have some lovely sunny weekends perfect for dressing up and going for walks – I already have a few ideas for more layered outfits, so maybe next weekend.
