Why do i want to wear coats again?

It's not even August yet and lately I've been craving Autumn to badly! Summer is beautiful, but once the grass starts to brown, and Spring's new life starts looking a little withered - i guess i'm over it pretty quickly. This week, the Pacific Northwest has been HOT! In the 90s all week! The first scorching day was interesting, the second was misery. Turns out i'm climatized, past 80 degrees and my brain melts. Most people around the great Northwest do not have air-conditioning outside of their cars. We don't really need it. But for these rare days when the sun really lets us have it - yeah - AC would be nice...

I'm missing my favorite season, so close, but so far! Autumn is perfect for layering, cute socks, boots, sweet outfits, spicy food, cold mornings, crunchy leaves, rainbow trees, quiet forests, folk music, scary movies, costumes and Halloween! Just a few things... dreaming of wearing socks again.

Buuuut for now, all I can do is live out the rest of this summer (I'm making it sound like a punishment aren't I). I want to make time to gather friends and head to rivers and beaches while the sun warms bare shoulders. I realized over the weekend that i had only applied real sunscreen ONCE this summer... partly because I tend to dart in and out of the sun while i'm out and about, but also because i haven't put enough time into being out in the open! There's still time... my skin could still collect a little more pigment... (anyone else have a problem with finding make-up and concealer shades light enough?)

We visited Nisqually today after a disappointing giant patio sale at an old folks home. Nisqually was beautiful, the patio sale was a bunch of junk - no antiques...

I posted these photos on instagram a couple days ago, just documenting my complement magnet dirty greasy hair style. Spin-pins for the win!

funny reading about someone else who feels like this...longing for autumn, before summer has finished casting us in her glory...I thought I was the only strange one!
