Well, friends, it is getting to that time of year when it is hot as blazes, but somehow your summer clothes just don’t look right. Since it is the month of September, I would not wear the dresses that I am posting today, but you have not seen them so here they are. You might see them again next spring!

As usual, I like for you to see before and after, so here is a pretty spring/summer dress that I added to as I went along:

DSC_0130 (285x640)

Here is another:

DSC_0111 (351x640)
DSC_0108 (307x640)

And here are some outfits that I probably can wear for a few more weeks:

DSC_0084 (331x640)
DSC_0138 (247x640)

I’ll be back soon with some jean-jacket looks. ย Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I loved both of those dresses. Can’t imagine why you wouldn’t wear them for a few more weeks if the weather is warm. Where I live the month of September is just a continuation of August, over 100 all month. What is September like in the south?

    1. Anne, you are right. It is meteorologically (is that a word? ha ha) summer, but style-wise it is “transition time”…which means wearing clothes that are cool and comfortable but not too summery looking, but also not quite fallish. It seems silly…it is silly..but I just can’t make myself wear bright summer clothing in September ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. I love your blog! Showing outfits before and after – and sometimes in between – is a tremendous help in seeing how my own outfits could use tweaking (or complete overhauls :D). Thanks for having the guts to post the not-so-great outfits and mistakes. You’re truly an inspiration!

    1. Kris, thank you so much! I am just trying to do the kind of blog that I looked for and couldn’t find. Most of the style blogs I found were filled with beautiful sophisticated photos of beautiful sophisticated people in beautiful sophisticated locations. Nice, but not that helpful to me. I have learned so much from just trying things, and truly hope that maybe some other people can benefit and start trying things too!

      1. I don’t like to cast aspersions, but one fashion blog I tried to follow had a woman over 40 who was approximately a size 4, as the author. Every time she bought a new piece of clothing there were at least 8 pictures of her wearing that piece. I mean, did we really need to see her new blouse from 8 different angles?

        And she certainly could have done the rest of us in middle age the favor of gaining some mid section weight. Right? ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

        1. Oh Anne, I know what you mean. There are some bloggers who just seem to say “Look how great I look! I am small! I am cute! I can’t even choose which photo is the best! They all look great!” Totally agree that those kind of blogs are not very helpful, even if the outfits are great. ๐Ÿ˜‰
