The Cure for the Summertime Blues
Less than a week away from the official start of Autumn and, for once, the thermometer is matching the calendar. With these recent cool mornings and and pleasant days, it's clear that the cure for my summertime blues is truly the changing of the season.
But, just because it's cooler out doesn't mean I'm pulling out my favorite wool skirts and sweaters in all their lovely autumnal tones.
As summer winds down, I'm still selecting lightweight cottons in whatever colors they might be (here's a reminder to seek out more fall-colored cottons) which means I get a chance to wear this fun polka dot skirt I picked up a few weeks ago.
I wore this outfit to run a few errands and nearly made it home before someone I encountered mentioned Lucille Ball. Out of all the wonderful outfits that appeared on I Love Lucy, I'm not quite sure why the polka dot ones have stuck pop culture memory but, never fail, red curls and polka dots always seem to bring on the Lucy comparisons-- not that I'm complaining.
