Weekday casual

White J.Crew sweater, ripped jeans

I love love love fall. I think I’ve literally been planning all of my fall activities since June…. Baking, making soups, hoarding scarves, putting pumpkins everywhere… you name it I do it. I think it has something to do with the memory of going back to school when I was a kid. It was always a time of new beginnings and fresh starts. A new year, new clothes, the possibility of new friends – it was always such a magical time. And even now, to mark the changing of the seasons I like to update my wardrobe where it’s needed (and now I get to update Emmylou’s as well… which is the most fun).

This is a great look for transitioning into fall. It’s casual – with the ripped jeans – but the wedges and the lightweight, ruffled J.Crew sweater elevate it enough to make you feel seamlessly put together. I’ve been wearing these Clarks wedges alllllll summer, and they have held up so well. They are so, so comfy, go with just about anything, and give me just the right amount of height when I need it. They have also proved very useful for outdoor weddings when you don’t want to wear heels and run the risk of sinking into the grass and falling on your face…

Fall can come on pretty strong here. I really noticed when I went to Indiana last fall how warm and nice it was there compared to Calgary. So even though (most) days are still hot and humid, I know starting next month the chill will return to the air, boots and sweaters will be pulled out from the backs of closets, and hearty stews and roasts will make a comeback in a big way. Needless to say my anticipation is growing. However, I tend to wish my life away more than I’d like to (especially when you have a two year old that you CAN’T WAIT to have potty trained…), so I’m trying to slow down, take a breath and enjoy what’s left of the fleeting summer months. Because before you know it, the snow will be falling, I will have lost what little tan I’ve managed to accumulate, and I’ll probably be looking forward to spring again.

I am also planning to take advantage of the summer sales right now and pick up a few items for our trip to Mexico in November. We won’t need a lot (because let’s be honest – I’ll be living in a swim suit), but I might need to get a few larger sized pieces for Emmylou because all of her summer clothes are already getting too small – and a few things for me of course…

Hope you all are enjoying soaking up this last bit of August!
