I think the first week of September might be my least favorite week of the entire year. Why, you ask? Because I always hype it up to be the beginning of the BEST month of the year. I love September – it’s my birthday month, national yoga month (fun!), and the unofficial, official start of fall. And while the first week of September brings some of my most favorite things (an Anthro birthday coupon, the return of the Pumpkin Spice Latte, etc., etc.) it also always happens to be one of the hottest weeks of the year in SoCal. Now I know we’re supposed to be celebrating the “last week of summer” and all that, but the last week of summer always seems to come right when I’m ready to break out boots, tights, scarves and all things layered. Which would be ridiculous in this heat. Instead, I’m wearing stuff like this –
Madewell had an awesome dress sale a couple weeks ago and this little blue number was one of my splurges. I’m totally crazy about the color and the pleats. Not so crazy about sweating through the silk, though. I can’t wait to throw some layers over (and under!) this to make it a pretty, fall frock.
Did you take advantage of any Labor Day sales this weekend? Do tell!
