goodbye summer.

by @according2kelly on October 1, 2007

now that october is here, it’s official – fall is here. that means that there will be a certain crispness in the air, it will soon be time for hot chocolate & fires in the fireplace, the holidays are just around the corner & i’ll get to bundle up before going outside. (i know you are all probably laughing & thinking, but you live in california… sure, we don’t get snow & ice, but it can definitely get a bit nippy!) it also means it’s time to put away the flip flops & dust off some REAL shoes. although, to be honest, i pretty much wear the flip flops year round, i just tend to incorporate more real shoes into my wardrobe during the fall & winter. i can’t wait to find some old favorites… like these cute ones i got in milan a couple years back. with the tweed & fringe in a totally unexpected green color i feel like a hip marian the librarian.

I love Fall too! Since I live in Minnesota - my shoe collection consists of more than just shoes that cover your toes. I have to dust off boots, rainboots and snow boots!

I'm not ready to give my flops up yet either... it's starting to get chilly here in RI, but until there is SNOW on the ground I refuse to put them away. Funny what you said about being in California... when I go to southern Cali to visit my cousins in March, I always bust out the flip flops and everyone there thinks I'm crazy!

the wind is howling, it is about 50 degrees outside, my feet are freezing, but what do I have on my feet? You guessed it, my flip flops....whatever!

Love the shoes!!! Shoe fettishes are the best!!! Although I have found bags to be lots of fun too!
