But still...I grew up in the Midwest. Late AUGUST nights can be chilly. September often requires tights and sweaters. Ahh...it seems like a mythical land right now with the cicadas humming outside my window and a watermelon growing in the garden that I will harvest in September. Summer is not going anywhere. I don't really want it to go anywhere, honestly. I am generally quite happy to enjoy the heat and sun EXCEPT that I really want to wear that curvy purple velvet jacket. It's romantic+shaped+purple! Mmmm...I can skip the camel trousers, hip-length slim jackets and high-laced leather boots. They're lovely, but would be a bit comical on me.
Yes, I know there are also loads of soft, sheer floral dresses this fall. And 50s big skirts and fitted sweaters. I can and will wear those (shh, I already have a bunch of them in my closet!) At least, I will wear them after it cools down...after that watermelon has been picked & the leaves start to turn. In November.
What about you...can you wear fall clothes in the actual fall?
