Tropical, Even Though It's Fall

They say that social media makes people envious of what they don't have, which, I think, is more or less true, depending on how much you let it get to you. I have to say, I have been very envious lately of a lot of people on social media but I guess you can say that it's more of a "seasonal" envy. You see, Instagram is filled with people apple picking in sweaters or romping through leaves donning heavy coats. Here in Los Angeles, it was over 100 degrees last week, which makes such things impossible. Now that it's October, I am really ready to experience some cooler fall weather! Fall weather here in Southern California usually fully kicks in when December comes, so I will have to put up with the heat here for a little while longer, which is why I am in a tropical print sleeveless blouse for today's post. In my defense, I think the black background on the print makes it a little bit more fall appropriate!

I guess you could also say that the grass is always greener on the other side because I know plenty of people who would kill to be able to have warm weather and no snow during the winter months. As someone who grew up on the East Coast, I do miss the differentiated seasons but, at the same time, I think I would also miss the mild temperatures here on the West Coast. Clearly, there are pros and cons no matter how you look at the situation. I guess one positive regarding our warm temperatures is that you wouldn't be able to wear cute pink mules like this in the middle of a rainy fall season or a winter snow storm! Now that I think about it, I guess I really don't have that much to complain about!

  1. Those are the cutest shoes I ever did see! And I totally get what you mean. We have a few yellow leaves here right now, but definitely not yet the foliage party I'm seeing on some people's feeds. I like Fall, but would rather skip on Winter haha. xo

  2. Your top and shoes are adorable! I just love this bright pink on you.

    I hope you are having a great week!

  4. Katie, this top and the shoes are so pretty! And I do love when you style jeans. You wear them well! Just adorable. I hope it cools off for you soon! While it will be super cold here soon, I am not envious of all year warm weather either! It's just not for me. Thanks for linking!
