Falling out: Palazzo pants, striped tank, denim jacket, and cut-out booties

So it’s Labour Day…which is wonderful because it means a long weekend (yippee!) but also not so wonderful because it’s the last holiday of the summer.  I ask you – how is that even possible?!

The season here in Vancouver was sadly a bit of a non-event this year; looking back at my outfits of the past couple of months, I realize how few truly “summery” ensembles I was able to feature.  There’s been lots of long sleeves; and layering not just for the sake of style…but actually for extra warmth, too!!

Of course an “Indian Summer” is always a possibility – and hey! – I have to remember that autumn doesn’t officially start until September 22nd.  There’s still time for breezy palazzo pants and a cute knit camisole… even if my denim jacket needs to come along “just in case!!”

Are you excited about the imminent arrival of fall, dear readers??  Or are you like me…and anxious to cling to the “dog days” for as long as possible??  Leave me a note and let me know!!

    Monika this look is so edgy and funky!! I'm dying over that knitted top… the colours are so lovely, I wish I was less boobilicious so I could wear cute strappy tops like that!

    I really don't like it that summer it's almost over. But here in the Netherlands is a very warm week now, after an awful summer. And it's is so early dark outside! I really hate that!

    I seem to get so behind on reading posts lately, but am glad to finally see this one! I love the pattern mixing you've got going on here.

    So, about the seasonal thing. I live in a place where the summer is brutally hot and long. We are celebrating that we've reached the latter part of summer–the overnight lows are in the upper 60s and low 70s (as opposed to the 80s)and the daytime highs are staying below 100 finally. We won't have truly temperate weather for another 6-9 weeks. So. . . you can imagine we are longing for our "autumn", such as it is!

    Love the neutral zone look and those studded platforms are great 🙂
