the weird time begins dress and jacket

for most of the summer, i was anxious about summer ending. having suffered through a long winter and a nagging cough that appeared with the beginning of the year and wouldn't go away until well into spring, i needed a long break away from winter. every day, i pushed down the anxiety about summer ending (too soon) and strived to enjoy summer (even each and every heatwave). now that summer is almost over, for some reason, i don't feel so anxious about it ending (soon or otherwise). even the weird times that characterize the end of summer and beginning of fall, when one day can be truly chilly only to be followed by a hot day (and so on and so on), aren't bothering me. i am taking them all in stride, happily switching between summer and fall clothing on a daily basis if need be. the suspicious part of me is asking why i am so "go with the flow" all of a sudden. what happened to the anxiety about winter coming too soon? the "go with the flow" part of me is telling me to stop questioning my zen state of mind and to enjoy it. what is winning out? i don't know. but dang do i love shopping for new winter clothes!

i am wearing the corfu dress, the amazing skirt and the shinjuku jacket by kaliyana. my boots are the noon boot (box collection) by trippen.

I love that dress, and it has given me an idea for a similar one I own in Lime Green (not black) that I can re vamp for Summer. Funny how by the end of summer we are ready for the next season. And yes, it also means shopping!!
