Leaves on the ground and still summer-like temperatures! Not complaining, don’t get me wrong, but the end to this year’s summer (and beginning of fall) has been so weird. We have so many leaves around our house already and clearing them is my husband’s least favorite chore. The only upside to this time consuming task, is when our boys jump in the leaf piles and have so much fun just roaming around. The simplest things always make them the most excited and happy. Seriously, our kids are very outdoorsy so it doesn’t get much better than jumping in leaf piles for them.
Anyways, I am taking advantage of the weather and wearing as many summer-like outfits as possible. Or semi-summer-like outfits, because here I added some ankle boots. In Chicago it’s almost impossible to wear ankle boots in the summer (in 90 degrees!), so the minute it gets a little cooler I am all into wearing them. I’ve said this before probably, but peep toe ankle booties and ankle boots are two of my favorite footwear styles, hands down (ok, plus the sneakers LOL)!
Would love to know what is your favorite weather season? Mine is definitely the fall but that transition period between summer and fall is also great too! When it gets a little cooler at night but still warms up during the day…? It is just the BEST! I wish fall lasted a little longer in Chicago though. Usually it’s really only 4 weeks or so but we sure take advantage of it over here! Kids just love playing outside and no one this time of year sweats too excessively LOL and kids don’t complain that it’s too hot! Although, I admit, our kids rarely say the weather may be too hot for them, but still, that happens sometimes in the summer. But once fall comes, there’s no complaining about anything anymore 🙂
