the last hurrah of summer


Collared Sheer top-Forever 21
Maxi dress- Forever 21
Necklace- The Bay
Shoes- The Bay
Earrings -Vintage


It always seems to happen every September in Vancouver, right when you think the rain is here to last, a week of unexpected high's of 26 grace us. And although we are all excited that we get to fight off the inevitable cold and wet 9 months, it takes us a while to peek our heads out of the anticipation of rain (and heavy rain boots), to have complete acceptance of the fact that you will not be needing your umbrella and to eventually acclimatize. So what is my point you are thinking and how does this relate to clothes? My point is that this middle period of unexpected-heat-unexpected-rain leaves me confused, standing in front of my wardrobe wondering what would be appropriate to wear. 

But this middle weather and last hurrah of summer also means that I get to layer more. It means I get to mix and match light knits with summer dresses---most of all it means I get to finally wear boots. Even though I didnt do any of that here, it means I can wear what I want to with out feeling too hot or too cold!
