When I got to the shop this morning, C and I headed straight outside to snap blog shots. This is for two reasons: (1) My makeup hasn’t had a chance to fall off my face and my clothes are still freshly pressed, and (2) Every time we say, “we’ll get to that later,” it never happens.

As we walked outside and C spied my feet, he laughed and shook his head. Boots. In a lame attempt to defend my less-than-practical footwear choice, I said, “It’s kind of chilly today, right?” To which he quickly replied, “Nope. Not even a little bit.”

I mean, he’s right; while we’ve had some relief from the stifling heat, 77 degrees isn’t exactly brisk. but it’s almost October and I’ve been staring at these — and other — new cool-weather kicks in my closet for weeks now and I just couldn’t take it anymore.

So until the thermometer starts to drop for real, we can just pretend. Besides, that’s what central air conditioning is for. By next week, I’ll be in scarves.

Psstt… Keep those INPINK giveaway entries coming! So far, there are only 134 entries and there will be 100 winners. That means the odds are in your favor, friends. Don’t miss out!

    I understand what you mean about wanting it to be cooler. Living in Florida, I miss wearing boots, cute blazers, etc. It’s kind of funny that one of the reasons I’m excited about visiting NY in October is so I can wear such things!

    So, I keep busting out the boots…even though it’s still in the 90’s here in Texas. Maybe if I keep dressing for the cold weather it’ll actually come…?

    I’ve been pretending too. I can’t wait for it to actually be crisp and cool in the morning. Boots will work for me in the morning, but in the afternoon, when it’s 100 degress still {in OCTOBER} I regret the boots! Cute look!
