As I have said many times on many social media platforms, this is one of my favorite times of year. Early September: college football is underway (WRECK 'EM TECH!), the leaves will start to turn soon, and [the thick of the] Texas summer is behind us! As it pertains to this blog, it also means fall fashion, and I would be lying to you if I said I wasn't excited about that too.

Now, although I'm glad fall weather is approaching, there are a couple things I'll miss about dressing for summer:

  1. Going sock-less.  There is such a cool feeling (literally and figuratively) about the casual nature of being sock-less* in your favorite loafers or double-monks
    *I never actually go sock-less. No-show socks all day for me!
  2. Light fabrics. This summer has been full of linens and light cottons to beat the heat. And even though I'm glad I won't need them anymore, I'll certainly miss the way they look.
  3. Wearing WHITE. I've enjoyed running around in my new Stan Smith sneakers and white jeans (pictured here). But you know the rule: NO WHITE AFTER LABOR DAY. So it looks like I'll have to store them away until next year. Actually, no-- I've always thought that if it's warm, sunny, and feels like spring that it's okay to wear white. So don't be shocked or offended if you see me in white sneakers later in the month, because my fellow Texans know how summer likes to linger.
