Late Summer

Late Summer 1 Late Summer 2 Late Summer 3 Late Summer 4 Late Summer 5 Wearing:
Asos eyelet crop top
Zara gingham shorts (they were longer but I rolled them up)
Topshop sandals
Barney's wicker purse
Prada sunglasses
Mac "Girl About Town" lipstick

I'm trying desperately to hold onto these last days of summer.  The long, hot nights are slipping away faster than I'd like.  As a result, my crop tops and shorts are in a constant rotation.  I've been dreading and anticipating the return of Fall.

Last month, while driving along my favorite strip of Highway 12, I caught a glimpse of something I couldn't take my eyes off of.  I noticed the first tree along the hills that was changing color.  It immediately made me think of Fall, cool mornings, knitted sweaters, and pumpkin flavored anything.  But at the same time it made me realize that my favorite season was coming to an end.  Already the nights seem shorter.  Despite the heatwave we've had this week, it still doesn't stop the fog from spilling over the hills and into the valley at night.

So lately, I've been trying to soak up the last remaining days of summer light.  These photos were taken a month ago (maybe more), but this is pretty much what I've been wearing all summer.

We still get plenty of warmth and sunshine in the Fall.  But still...I'm a summer girl and always will be.  There is nothing like the lazy hot days of June and July.

  1. I love your Zara gingham shorts, although good decision on rolling them up as I can't imagine them working as well at a longer length! Have a lovely week :)

  40. Wow you look gorgeous in this post, love the eyelet crop top and that cute plaid shorts! A very summery ensemble just before the weather turns too cold for these pieces, I think it's wise you get the most wear out of them before you can't anymore! But hope you can enjoy fall fashion as well, it's so fun to wear long cozy cardigans and felt hats or beanies!

  48. You look so gorgeous, dear Azu ! You make me think about summer, also because your body is a perfect bikini body and look at how wonderful you look with a crop top and shorts ! I am also a summer girl but I don't mind hiding myself below layers and layers of clothing :-) Kisses
