This morning, I woke up to a cool breeze floating through our bedroom window, and on nights out, I’m gently forced to grab a sweater for me, a jean jacket for the kids, and a swaddle blanket too. For good measure. A huge part of me is soaking up every morsel of summer style. But equally, there is a part of me that looks at the jeans in my dresser and the blazers in my closet with a looming desire. I’d like to layer again without sweating, and find a good leather jacket to rock without shame. A pair of ankle boots to wear with a floral dress, will due too.
I know this feeling… it’s familiar. It mirrors the feelings I have when Christmas is over, and we still have to endure winter. Not completely the same, but very similar.
Despite my eagerness, in a few weeks, when I’m packing up the kids’ swimming gear, and saying so-long to movies in the park, and Pops on The Highline, I’ll be rolling my eyes at this post, and at the eagnerness to exit such an exciting season.
