The past week it seems as if everyone whose anyone is gloating about fall. Okay, maybe gloating isn’t quite the right word but the word on the street is that the whole wide internet is excited about it. Let’s be clear here, it was really starting to bother me. It’s still August people, and I have practically the whole month of September free from school still so I sort of felt like everyone was getting ahead of themselves. I’m not ready to pack away my bikinis, I’m not ready to give up evenings laying in the sunshine by Greenlake or sundresses or ice cream (okay…not going to give that up) and I’m definitely not ready for the endless rain and mud that Seattle calls fall. I didn’t get the hype. That is, until this morning.
This morning Jeff and I went on a little stroll around town. We had our Starbucks in hand and the whole morning to just enjoy living downtown (we have less than a week left in our little city studio). Today was a bit cloudy, and windy, I could feel fall in the air, and to be honest I actually didn’t hate it. I especially didn’t hate it when we happened to wander into Anthropologie (Can I please be rich and successful with thousands to splurge right now?!) and checked out all of the adorable fall sweaters they have right now. I’m a sucker for stripes, and flowery prints and anchors and honestly anything with a dog on it (so basically the entire store).
I was drooling over a striped sweater with a french bulldog on it when I realized I was a little excited for the change of the season. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to rush it (I will be enjoying my last almost month of summer) but I’m not dreading breaking out my ugly sweaters and comfy jeans and boots (my favorite part of fall).
What about you? How do you plan on enjoying the last bit of Summer? Happy Friday! I’m excited to spend the weekend with my Dad who is visiting from California and do a little apartment shopping with my new roomie! I’ll let you know if I find anything amazing!
