Wearing All the Summer Things
Is it just me or does the last month of summer get totally robbed of that summer feeling by some auto mechanism that kicks in to make you feel like fall is imminent, despite the weather? It doesn’t help that Toronto has had the weirdest summer on record (my own, record that is, which isn’t actually factually accurate 😂). But it happens every year. And while I’m planning my fall wardrobe in my head, and only buying fall or transitional pieces when I go shopping, you’d never know it to look at me. As soon as this time of year hits, my subconscious takes over and I feel compelled to expose as much of my skin as possible to the fleeting sunlight and warm air while I still can (tastefully, of course). When I had the opportunity to choose a few things from new-to-me website,
tobi.com/ca, I split the difference and chose one look that epitomizes summer and another that I can wear into fall–and even through winter. But more on that one later because right now I am chasing after Gigi at the park and going for walks with the family in this flouncy, little short set that is just about as summery as you can get. I love the off-shoulder style of the top and the shorts are so comfortable too. Plus I love the subtle print. Have I ever mentioned my penchant for solids? Aside from stripes (because Breton stripes are a must in everyone’s wardrobe), there’s nary a print in site in my closet. This sweet set allowed me to go out on a limb, but not too far, which is just the way I like it.
Do you feel the same impulse to squeeze a last wear out of all of your summer stuff come August? Let me know in the comments!
