Summer Fling

As the rest of the world is gearing up for Fall, I am still stuck in the blazing hot city of Houston. Even so, I have my sights set on Fall.  I can smell the chili on the stove, taste the Sam Adams winter lager, and hear my husband screaming at the television while football is roaring in the background. But I do know that us Houstonians have a while to go before we really feel any relief from this intense heat, so I decided to go ahead and do a few more posts with my summer outfits of choice!  I love this ensemble because it is still classic but has a sprinkle of retro-chic.  I bought the scarf wrapped around my head at the wonderful NYC vintage shop What Goes Around Comes Around, and I was so elated when I came across it!

Love the feel of these shots - reminds me of Iowa, where I grew up. :) That last one - how especially lovely!

Yes, I can't wait for fall... here in LA we don't feel it as much, but in the Midwest it's quite the magical time of year. I've never liked football more in my life!

Love your outfit. I love summer but it can be challenging deciding what to wear when it is really hot.

In the UK we are coming to the end of summer. We don't seem to get really hot augusts anymore.
