I am such a summer girl, and it always feels a little bittersweet when August rolls around. Even though summer isn't technically over until the end of September, I always associate August with the final hurrah of sunshine-y goodness before the air begins to get cool and crisp here in Chicago. I do love early fall fashion though, and one look at Anthropologie's new August catalog (above) stirred up some excitement in me for things like pretty patterned tights and lightweight sweaters and coats in bold colors. I love that yellow is such a big color for fashion this fall. It's my favorite color, but you don't normally associate it with autumn, which is one of the reasons I chose it for my fall wedding (I like unique!). For me, yellow in the fall is kind of like bringing some of summer's sunshine with you into the colder months.
Since August is officially here, I also thought I'd take a look back at some of my favorite posts from the past month. If you missed any of these posts and want to check them out, just click on the images or links.
