In denial

Ugh. I received the latest J Crew catalog in the mail today and as I was flipping through it, all I could feel was dismay at seeing all the coats and jackets on display.

Usually I look forward to fall - the season of new boots! And cozy sweaters! - but not this year. This year, I am still defiantly wearing my sundresses and sandals all over and refusing to go shopping for fall clothes.

Because fall means winter is just around the corner, and I feel like we just got rid of winter.

And I always think that the period between Labor Day and the first true cool autumn day is tricky, because you're ready to shift your mindset to butternut squash soup and apple cider and merino sweaters, but it's still 95 degrees outside and the pool continues to beckon.

Someday I'm going to drag Mr Hazel and the cats and moving to San Diego.

In Scandinavia where I live summers are non -existing. I am happy if we get over 70 degrees for one week each summer.

I love fall clothes & I love love j.crew fall clothes! I'm kinda sick of the warm weather & ready for fall.

I'm with you -- I'll be SO sad the day I have to pull out my fall coat for the first time. Plus, because of all these #$%^@! stinkbugs that have infested NE Pennsylvania, I can't even open my windows and enjoy the cooler nights :(

Protege, that's interesting! I don't know if I would be able to survive with barely any summers :)

HMM, nooooo, more warm weather!

Marn, I, too, will be very sad to pull out my fall coat :(
