Dreaming of Fall

Happy Wednesday, Friends!

By this point in the Summer, I’m pretty much dreaming of Fall, every.single.day. I’m almost the reverse of many, and I hibernate during these hot, hot months. I love to be outside, but I really don’t like to sweat unless I’m actually in workout clothes & working out. Anyway, as you can tell from this post that I’m already mentally changing my closet to Fall, even if the temperatures outside don’t match. Only 30 days to go!

Here’s what I’m dreaming of adding to my closet this Fall!

Happy Shopping!

Southern Summers & Dreaming of Fall

The temperatures are hot here. I mean they’re so hot, they make you want to stay inside all day. I literally step outside to recycle something, and it makes me cringe. And, I LOVE being outside. Here’s a little known secret about me, I am not a fan of heat or hot temperatures, which ultimately means I’m not a fan of Summers in the South. I was born and raised in the South, and I love the South, but who wants to get all dressed up to then walk outside and sweat immediately? I know I don’t. It is only bearable if I can be beside a pool all day, everyday, but that’s about it. Since that’s not been my reality since I was a teenager lifeguarding, I have to deal. And, by July I am dreaming of Fall. Who’s with me? Don’t get me wrong, I am not a negative person at all, but I don’t know anyone who says “Oh, I love the heat and sweating all of the time.” Said no one, ever.

So, here are a few things getting me through this heat wave! What do you do to escape the heat?

Over the July 4th weekend my sweet husband actually painted our little one’s playroom. We’ve been wanting to create this space for quite awhile now, and now we have one. It’s the perfect place for us to play when it’s too hot outside. This space is going to be loved by our children for many years to come, I just know it.

 Workout Outfits
When the temperatures get into the triple digits and you’re chasing a little one around, workout outfits are a go-to. I haven’t given up when it comes to fashion, I just don’t care to ruin my clothes by 10am with nothing but sweat. I know it sounds gross, but I love workout gear even more now that I’m a SAHM.

 La Croix Orange
I’ve never been good at drinking a lot of water each day. I know it’s bad, but I have found I drink more water with these orange La Croix sparkling waters. Target always is running specials on them, so I stock up.

Early Mornings
If you have a little one, you know the days of “sleeping in” are over. So, I try to take our walks in the mornings and run errands early in the mornings before the heat really moves in.

InStyle Magazine
My first Fall issue of InStyle came in the mail this week, which also means the Fall catalogs from all of my favorite places to shop will soon be coming in the mail too. There’s hope afterall!


So, while I can’t quite wear my pretty coats like the one above just yet, I’m quite excited about planning Fall outfit posts for the blog, and I am dreaming of the first “crisp” Fall day. Until then, I have plenty of fun posts ahead, but I’ll be the first to admit I’m most excited about the ones this Fall.

What’s your favorite season?
