White Hot August

So, August is here. Kids are going back to school, pre-season football starts, the stores start displaying darker colors,  even some sweaters, the September InStyle BOOK has arrived, and it’s hard not to feel the itch to start pulling out your fall clothing.  But, here in Tennessee it’s still a sweltering 90 degrees and the lake/pool is probably like bath water.  For me, I love to get in wearing all my whites a few more times.  I know, I know….. you can still wear white after Labor Day and yes, I ride that band wagon.  May even do a post about it, in fact, on September 1st I’ll just say, ‘reread post from August 13th’.  Absolutely you can.  But, by mid September or so, I don’t necessarily want to. Once the calendar reaches my birthday on the 21st, I’m feeling the pull of autumn…for sure.

Right now though, what I love is white and khaki or cream, white and wine reds, white and muted greens or sea blues.  Or even white head to toe.  It’s says….’heck yeah it’s hot, why are you wearing black?’?!

So, following will be a set of pictures.  Just ideas, no specifics on brands and prices.  Just ideas.  To finish out the summer.  In white.  Pretty, cool white.  Looking way more sharp than black:)

I must say, Jane is looking pretty all right here.  This suit looks like it may be just a shade more creamy than true white.  Hard to tell.  Still…beautiful look.

 

Jane Fonda looking fabulous.

Again, it was hard to tell from the picture but a mini diagonal print in red I believe, with white denim.  Very August into September don’t cha think?  Don’t get hung up on the high-waisted pants!!

Miranda Kerr

This is my favorite.  Maybe it’s the skinny white jeans, maybe the black heels, maybe the plaid shirt instantly evoking back to school, could even be the jewelry.  Probably just all of it.  I want it.

And this look is all kinds of fabulous!  And I love the bootcut…and the aviators….and the big chunky platforms.  This pic is a couple years old I think but still so good looking.  Classic.

And this photo also shows another classic look.  A silk blouse, in fall shades too!, a-line white skirt, and some attention grabbing heels…don’t love the bag but anyway…it is a fresh, summer into fall outfit.  This pic is also a couple years old but certainly has a timeless feel….and the midi skirt is hot right now!  I’d wear this in a heartbeat.

I hope I’ve inspired you to wear your whites all over hot Nashville the rest of the month, because come mid September or so if you’re like me, you’ll want to put them away for a while.  Not that you can’t wear it, I’ll just ready to bring out some new things.

My August is looking kinda slim appointment wise, please call now for fall bookings.  And if you’re looking, summer clothing is pretty picked over at this point in the stores.  There will be some pieces if you dig….which I LOVE to do!

Call or email…would love to catch up.  Thanks for so much reading,
