Wednesday Wishes - A Fabulous Fall Day


Happy Wednesday, lovelies! Hope you're all enjoying the short week. For some reason already it feels like a long one even though this is only my second day of work. Hmmm, funny how the end of summer can do that to a person...

I'm kind of having the in between seasons quandary. Waving goodbye to summer but not quite ready to say hello to fall since it's still quite warm here. How is one to dress during this time? And to be honest I'm kind of sick of all of my summer clothes at this point.

I think I'm just ready to fast forward to some gorgeous crisp & slightly brisk fall days where I can throw on something fabulous and very FALL-like and head on out for a little stroll. Bring it on! {I'm sure I'll regret this request in a few weeks :)}

So how bout you all. What are you wishing for today? And any tips for dressing during the transition of the seasons?

Beautiful pics. of Paris! I am ready for fall, it's been hot here and I am trying to make do w/ my summer clothes which have had it at this point. Bring on the chill!! xo

Rachel said...

Ooh lovely inspiration Dawn! I am having exactly the opposite dilemma; I wish summer would hurry up and come over here, but it is still freezing! Hope the fall comes soon for you lovely x

Copious Couture said...

It's pretty chilly over here already, especially in the mornings and evenings. Ughh

The Simply Luxurious Life said...

Your images are gorgeous. They say Paris in the Spring is a must see (and I can't wait to find out), but I have a feeling Paris in the Fall is just as lovely. I am wishing for raining days, layers, a long conversation with a friend that loses all track of time, oh the list could go on. Thanks for letting me dream. :)
Have a wonderful day and I hope your week goes more quickly and easily for you.

Tanvi said...

i am wishing for a Marc Jacobs bag! Haha!! But thats' not about to happen! Is it? ;)

Taylor said...

I am in the same boat! I don't want summer to end but very ready to have new outfit choices to choose from!

Krystal said...

I have no clue!! But you make dressing for fall sounds heavenly...I think even I'm getting the fall bug and I've been grumpy about it this year. (I just didn't have enough summer)

Jude said...

I am ready for fall too! These absolutely gorgeous photos have really put me in the mood. :) Thanks for a great Wed. start!

Marie-Ève said...

Mhhh. I'm wishing that it my mat leave had begun already (6 weeks to go). I'm always sad for summer to go, but I also love the fall.

coolkids said...

I agree it is hard to figure out how to dress these days! But I love a nice fall day in the midwest.:)

Tangerine Fairy said...

This reminds me of Paris..aaaaahh..my next trip for sure!

Andrea said...

I am so right there with you on this and I share the same sentiment. Its still so warm here, and it's hard to figure out what to wear. While saying goodbye to summer is bittersweet, I am secretly looking forward to the weather cooling down so I can start sporting pieces of my new Fall wardrobe. Every day, I wake up thinking, hmmm, maybe I can wear my new boots that I got in Spain, but noooo, its like 85 degrees and still too hot!! Hahaha, have a great day sweetie!

Connie @ SogniESorrisi said...

Love these photos--the red is gorgeous...almost makes me want to welcome fall. Almost.

Indie.Tea said...

Ooo, those are so glamorous. I think that we grow more tired as the weather grows cooler...

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Aahh i'd love to wear that first outfit and really embrace fall (though sigh not in my new country)!

Nell said...

Oh to be the girl reading the book in the beret! xx

SabinePsynopsis said...

Wonderful Paris photos... I think it's time for the onion look - layers upon layers! xoxo

jozen said...

I know what you mean... they days are just dragging! LOL

LifestyleBohemia said...

Beautiful images - love the pops of dark red!
The weather's been a little back & forth here in NY, making it hard to dress. Always have to carry a cardi with you!
xx

honey my heart said...

i'm excited for fall and the new colors and clothes that it brings.

glad to hear the package got there, hope you like it!

ryan said...

I'm so ready for fall, but I know what follows fall and that I am not so ready for.

Cara said...

right now I am in "total transition" mode! lots of changes-good of course!

the chirpy bird said...

Red! Gotta love it! Changes are good, just exhausting!

Taj Acosta said...

I'm in the same boat as you sister! I can't let go of summer totally but I'm kinda ready for fall and the clothes! Pumpkin spice latte's have been helping me transition! hugs

Poppies and Sunshine said...

I am wondering how to dress too! Today's weather seems confused. It wants to be fall, but the sun keeps peeking through. So it is a confusing day to know how to dress. I am in layers today!

Punctuation Mark said...

nice all these french images... i wish i could sympathize with you the being sort of over summer but i don't because we still have a few more months of it here in Miami... haha!!! actually wish i could have some Fall soon... jealous over here!

Nikki said...

happy wednesday love!

Bella *Bellgetsreal said...

Gorgeous pictures. I just got back from the mall and seeing all the beautiful trenches and sweaters makes me want the sky to cloud up so I can bundle up...oh wait...I live in Seattle.

today I combined one of my summer dresses with a black cardigan, belt, and socks and boots. Made it very fall but still light. hope that helps

The Zhush said...

I would be excited for fall, if experience hadn't taught me that it truly only lasts about 3 1/2 weeks, and then its just doom and gloom and cold! :( at least in Northern Westchester, NY!
(Although I too am sick of my summer wardrobe!)

I hear you! I am waiting for fall and can't wait to pack away my summer wardrobe (I am so over it :))

Kristin said...

Scarves and cardies are my favorite transition pieces!

Trish said...

Oh Dawn, these pictures have my heart longing to go back to Paris! The gorgeous cafes are so perfect for girl talk and people watching! :) Gotta love DJ from Dustjacket Attic, she is one of my dearest friends! xoxo
