This summer in Atlanta has been particularly miserable. Between the non-stop rain and the attack of the killer mosquitos, I felt like I’d moved to the damn rain forest. The arrival of fall doesn’t necessarily mean we’re in the clear. It will probably stay hot and nasty for another month or so, but we’re sooooo close. Last Saturday it rained all day, but instead of being 90 degrees, it was only about 70. PROGRESS! It was even cool enough for me to break out my new H&M faux leather moto jacket.
I’m pretty sure throwing a cute leather moto jacket over anything makes it instantly fall ready. No need to pack away those spring florals and summer dresses…just toss on a leather jacket and some boots, and go!
Funny thing about this dress…it’s obviously a summer frock, but when I bought it on clearance at Macy’s, I had fall and winter in mind. I just think neon lace is so cute edged up with black leather and boots. And, when it gets colder, I plan to wear it as a skirt layered under an over-sized sweater…with tights! This thing was made for fall.
Are you as excited about fall as I am?
