I'm just gonna start off real honest like and say that if you read July's What I'm Wearing Now post, this month will likely be pretty boring to you. Summertime is winding down, which means I haven't purchased anything new for the season, and am wearing mainly the same pieces I was last month. And that's cool - I cling onto summer with my fingertips until the bitter end (and beyond), and have been really loving getting use out of my most summery pieces. I'd be lying if I said they weren't starting to feel a tiny bit old, but that doesn't mean I'm even close to ready for sweaters or boots, man.

Lightweight dresses, tees, and cut-offs have once again prevailed - and for that I'm grateful. I've continued to wear sandals almost everyday too, but I have started wearing the occasional closed toe shoe - like a new pair of trusty classic Converse Chucks and these beauties from Minnetonka. Short summer dresses as well as maxi dresses from my beloved and oh-so-affordable Knox Rose line from Target have been on regular rotation as well. 

September usually starts to cool off a little here in Chicagoland, and stores are slammed with fall collections now, so we'll see if next month differs at all in terms of wardrobe around here. But for now, I'm milking summer style for as long as I can.

  1. The temperatures have started to feel a bit chillier here - we spent yesterday afternoon at our pool and I found myself shivering after an hour, which was very discouraging indeed. The thing I find hardest to give up at the end of summer is open-toed shoes. I wore sneakers one day last week, wound up with a blister and pouted for way longer than I should have about the end of summer, oops ;)

  12. Sounds like you're a summer babe and I love it with all your heart hehe. I, on the other hand, am so ready for fall clothing. But the nice thing about all these pieces is that they're super transitional!
