I Swear, it's still Summer!!! But I'm crushing on winter attire!

I woke up this morning to my alarm clock playing music at 5:44am. I was sure I must have set the alarm wrong as it was pretty much pitch black in my room still.. surely this is a joke! I looked over and indeed it was 5:44am. Time to get up and on the treadmill before the troops arise. After my run daylight had finally come but boy, was it overcast and chilly. It honestly felt and looked like October! I refuse to believe my precious summer is over so I pulled out the brightest shirt I could find in my closet:

-Shirt-American Eagle (OLD--over three years old--SHOPPING MY CLOSET!!)
-Matchstick Jeans-J Crew Outlet (Spring 2010)
-Wonder Tee-Down East Basics
-Bangles-Gap Outlet
-Necklace-Lisa Leonard Designs
-Earrings-American Eagle
-Ring-Forever 21

I originally had shorts on but after stepping outside I came back in and promptly changed...I'm a wuss when it comes to cold weather. I blame it on living in Texas for four years....the coldest it ever got there was like 55 degrees in December. I lived in Utah before THAT was cold. I visited Alaska in December one time...that takes the cake.

So even though I'm still all about summer weather, I can't help but be so excited for fall to roll around...I just love fall clothes! Sweaters, boots, jackets...YUM!! My wishlist is seriously out of control and I'm lusting after several cute things...

Bianka Blouse-Anthropologie

This would be so cute with skinny jeans, a chunky weave sweater and over the knee boots! Speaking of boots...

Shiri Suede Over-the-knee Boot-LOFT

I love the dark chocolate brown color of these over-the-knee boots and the fact that they're so can fold them down or pull them up. Gorgeous!

Next up are these pretties...Anticipation Heels-Anthropologie

These are seriously so cute...I'm dying to try them on! The gray color would go with a ton and they'd be so cute with jeans!

Ok, that's it for now. I'm off to husband came home tonight after hiking Mt Whitney with his brothers and dad this week so it's ncie to have some company again after the kids go to bed.

Good night!


  1. I love the Anticipation Heels -- I think they would look fantastic on you. They're on my wishlist as well -- might just move to the cart someday soon!

    I too am so sad about the end of summer. This heat has been awful, but I'd like the long days to last just a little longer....

  2. love the anthro blouse. sooo cute!

  3. I am with you on loving all the winter clothes!!! I also run on the treadmill (I blame it on being a wuss and hating the heat/cold) I love that shirt it's the perfect way to brighten up the day!

  4. The over the knee boots are causing me to drool! I love the yellow top you are wearing...I totally thought the same thing yesterday, that I needed to wear something to remind myself that it is indeed summer! I am so happy that the sun came out today.

  5. I just discovered your blog and love that you are a stylish mom! It's what I try to be! :) What time do you go to bed to get up at 5:45 a.m.?

  6. Love that sunny yellow top! I think the Anticipation Heels are awesome, but they'd look like big ole clunkers on my cute with the bow, I wish I could pull them off!

  7. Tina--I go to bed late...I'm a night owl! If I know I have to get up the next morning to run I try to be in bed by 11:30pm. Thanks ladies! =)

  8. You look great in lemon, it's such a friendly happy colour.

  9. I feel you... I am freezing my butt off over here! That yellow blouse is such a great color on you, and OMG I am dying over the Anthro Bianka top.

  10. I love that Bianka top and those anticipation heels. They are both on my wishlist. And I wish I could get up that early to run, you're a super woman!

  11. I know! I woke up this morning to a fall chill and you know what? I love it! After having a string of stifling weather, it's a welcome change.

    You look gorgeous in yellow! I'm loving your fall wish list items.
