My Never Ending Summer

See these? They're some of the jackets I've bought in the last month. I figured that since I'd dropped a couple of pounds this year, I could wear something like these with a pair of jeans and look downright spiffy. Now see this?
It's a lovely brown sweater I bought to wear over a plain white t-shirt. And this?

Another sweater I bought for the blue jean/white t-shirt look I'm planning to sport this fall. (I'm totally diggin' the color!)

However, thanks to this (click to enlarge):
I'm starting to wonder if maybe I shouldn't have just bought tank tops and bermuda shorts. Yesterday, it was 96 FLIPPIN' DEGREES HERE!!!! Hel-loooooooo! It's October! Time for pumpkins, falling leaves and crisp weather. Today it's supposed to get up to 90 degrees, but that's what they said yesterday so I'm preparing for a full-press roasting session. But, just to prove I'm not a total pessimist, I'm also heading out to find and buy a bale of hay, for my front yard scarecrow display. Mother Nature doesn't seem to want it to be cooler weather here so it looks like I'll just have to fake it. As they say: "Denial...not just a river in Egypt".
Hope Mother Nature comes around soon, though. I've only got a limited time frame to wear this before people start looking at me funny:It says "Don't be a scardy cat" on the front. Even cuter? Check out what it says on the back of the left shoulder:

You gotta love that, right?


  1. Come visit me, Kari. We've had temp highs in the 50s and 60s over the past week! Perfect Fall weather.

  2. Cute stuff! It's a little cooler up here, but still very warm! I have the cutest new stuff for izzy and she can't wear it yet because it's too hot outside! We just keep working out of our summer stuff... Works for me since I haven't bought ANYTHING for fall and basically threw out most of my old stuff when I cleaned my closet last... ugh :)

  3. Every day that you don't have to run the furnace is a good day! You'll be able to wear those cute clothes soon.

  4. It's been really nice here, low 80's yesterday, haven't stuck my head outside today yet.

    You're going to look so spiffy in your fine new duds!

  5. Such cite things! You WILL look awfully spiffy! That Halloween shirt is adorable!. : )

    I am so proud of you for losing weight and getting fit. You are something else!

    Now, come to OHIO Miss K. It is actually warmer this weekend, 72 degrees, but little humidity.
    Blie skies and very chilly nights.
    It was in the high 50s and 60s earlier this week and we had some rain. Started those leaves a turnin'.

    To paraphrase Rosemary Clooney, "Come ona my house, my house...I'll give ya cooool nights. Come ona my house, my house, I gotta Fall and it's just right..."

    Don't worry. Your cool is is...I know it...

    Love ya,

  6. I love em all but that Halloween sweater/sweat shirt is my favorite! Ha!

  7. Cute clothes Kari. Well just get in your car and head up to Ohio. You really would love this weather right now. I do love your new clothes and you have done such a great job with your weight loss.

  8. Congratulations on your weight loss! I love the button up sweaters!

  9. Come to New England, 60's during the day, 40 at night, and the heating bills are going to be severe this year. I want it to stay warm all winter! Enjoy your blog!

  10. I just love winter clothes. When I lived in the southern hemisphere I always felt quite cheated that I couldn't sport the vintage country look - tweeds & knits, scarves & gloves, hats & boots - so now I make the best of it!

  11. Please recycle some of those clothes this way- i love them sk

  12. That little "boo" on the shoulder is what makes the whole thing perfect! Don't you think? LOL

    We have been in the 50s for a week or so. Just perfect! I understand it's supposed to be in the 70s by the weekend though!

  13. I love your little jackets and really want some for myself!!! Too cute!


Thank you for your comment. I love to hear what you have to say!
