September and early October are weird times for getting dressed. When I leave my house with the rising sun on my way to work, I'm layered up with a cardigan and jacket. When I emerge, blinking the late afternoon sunlight, I have to strip off all the layers since the temperature has risen a good fifteen degrees and now I'm sweating. This time is what I like to refer to as the lovely "in between time" for fashion. In between fashion time is both good and bad: the cool to hot temperatures means getting dressed is a gamble BUT you get to dip into both summer and fall closets. I do have to say that the above outfit is one of my favorite "in between time" outfits. Sandals with jeans are my favorite staples for September and October and these distressed boyfriend jeans are just perfect with all the pairs I own. Anyone else jumping on the distressed jeans/boyfriend jeans bandwagon? I can't get enough of these jeans, just ask Nick.

I don't know where you are but the weather is slowly cooling around here and I'm finally getting to break out all those sale sweaters I bought in March and April. Budget-savvy is my middle name but I can't tell you how hard it is to wait to wear something. I was the kid who had to use/play/wear whatever Christmas presents she got right that day. Patience has slowly developed over time but it was still really difficult to pack away something with tags on it. So far weekend plans are pretty laid back (except for some serious Walking Dead viewing on Sunday) but we might hit up another festival or two. Festival season and perfect weather are what makes this in between time perfect.
