One cool breeze and I’m thinking fall fashion already. Yeah, it’s back into the high 80s today – but with lower humidity so it’s not miserable – but I sit in the AC most of the day, so…
I’m already mourning the loss of my sweater dress from last winter. (Too big, and as of yet Land’s End hasn’t released anything too similar.) So it’s no surprise that the first thing I’ve seen I feel as though I have to have is a Ralph Lauren Rugby sweater dress. I love the short sleeves, the belt, and the full skirt, but I might want the camel color instead. Dunno. Need to find it in a store to try it on for sure, because Ralph tends to run slim – in my opinion.
Hrmph. A quick looksie says the nearest RL Rugby store is in my old college shopping haunt, Georgetown. Ain’t happenin’. More hrmph. Dear world… women in podunk like fashion too and don’t always want to resort to mail-order.
I think I have one pair of jeans that fit and maybe ONE not-summer dress MIGHT fit. I guess I need to confirm that and then begin thinking more cool weather wardrobe thoughts, although as we assured a gal new to podunk earlier this week when it was still 100 degrees at 6pm (or at least felt like it), she’ll still be wearing summer clothes on into October.
What’s on your cool weather must-have list? I truly haven’t seen anything else that even remotely tempts me, unless you count almost the whole Lilly P fall catalog… and I don’t, because Lilly’s tropical roots show through in her designs, and come chilly, grey December, I won’t want to sport cheery prints that make me cranky because I’m not at the beach.
Have I mentioned lately that I don’t actually LIKE to shop? That being said, pondering my transitional and cool weather wardrobes is a lot more exciting than working through the League bylaws, policies and procedures proposed changes which is what I’ll actually be doing this weekend.
How do you stay on task when you have something large and tedious looming?
And please tell me all about your very exciting weekend plans…
