I’m sure you guys have heard the saying or seen the meme already, but I totally agree with the idea that “August is the Sunday of summer”– BECAUSE ITS SO TRUE! A good friend of mine ALSO always says “don’t let Monday ruin your Sunday”– which is also true, and I try to live by (hence the whole idea of “sunday funday”, right?). Anyway, being a teacher full time means that those back to school blues are in full force this time of year– and yes, while it’s def sad to see all my free time (and effort in blogging!) slowly creep away from me– this feeling is also coupled with the same anticipation of going back to school with a fresh start– especially style wise– really, who doesn’t get excited for fall fashion!? One of my favorite “back to school memories” is when my bestie Joanne and I decided to wear matching maroon ribbed turtleneck sweaters from CONTEMPO CASUAL, flared Mudd Jeans, and black LUGS (these very tough looking rubber soled laceup boots) to the first day of 5th grade (slaying, as per usual!)– the problem being that the very first day of school happens to still be 90 degrees in New York, usually, in public schools with no air conditioning…
Fast forward 20 something years later, and we still confront the same issue– we’re kind of over the summer trends, those thick, glossy September issues are coming out, and NYFW is on the horizon (already planning fall-ish, but 80 degree-friendly looks! Not easy…)– and we can’t wait to bust out the autumnal vibes. But the thermometer doesn’t cooperate. Sigh. So we continue to bust out the summer dresses (like this one above, which happens to be on sale!)– and try and make them work for just a few more weeks…we’ll be complaining about bundling up before we know it, right? Anyway, enjoy the last few weeks of summer guys– think of them as one big “Sunday Funday”!
