"'Tis the last rose of summer,While taking a break from school work (sadly, my school doesn't start three weeks into September like some), I stumbled across this quote. The idea that September is the last we will have of summer is quite daunting, it is also a chance to start new; to start fresh and put the past behind you. While you may feel like you are "left blooming alone" still hanging on to summer, look at it as a way to reinvent yourselves. Don't let anything stop you this year.
Left blooming alone; All her lovely companions Are faded and gone." -Thomas Moore, The Last Rose of Summer, 1830 (source: gardendigest)
Instead of doing an August favorites post, I thought a guide would be perfect since the fall season is coming up just around the corner. Before we head into the colder months of fall, don't be afraid to rock some of those summer items you have.
Check out this outfit. The dress is totally something you wear during the summer, but the leather jacket and black wedge booties completely transform it. They add an edge to the outfit, and the darker colors speak more to fall. The leather jacket is always looked at as more of a cold weather type item - it would be way to hot to wear it during the summer. It's probably different than most peoples' styles, but there is no reason you shouldn't try it. Quite frankly, I think its adorable!
Then again, it does get cold eventually ;( So in that case, try an outfit like this. Its cute, but warm and comfortable. It doesn't look like you're trying to hard, but you still put effort into it. The mustard yellow pants are SOO a fall color! And the sweater is sure to keep you warm for those windy days!
