Not wanting to let go of the last days of Summer with this outfit! Well actually Summer is officially over and it is Fall but the weather is saying Summer!
White capris with an off the shoulder black & white striped flowing top, accessorized with a silver necklace, leather wrap bracelet and off course flip flops while I still can! A date night with friends and it’s still 85 degrees here in PA and it’s almost October! I am loving it but I am so ready to break out the sweaters & boots and start creating some cute cozy Fall looks!
Summer is just hanging on, not wanting to let go!
That pretty much sums up how I have felt this past Summer, these past couple of months. Not wanting to let go of my daughter going off to college, but basically not wanting to let go of my life as I know it. For the past 18+ years I have been a Mom who has dedicated my life fully to being Mom and now that’s changing and I fount it so hard to let go & trust the changes in life, the transition, trusting that my baby was going to be okay.
I also feel like I’ve just been hanging on trying to figure this new life out! I would like to say it’s been a piece of cake but it hasn’t. If you are a mother who’s been through this already than I am sure you can relate, it’s hard, right?!
It took me a while to get to a place of peace, a place where I feel like I can move on, I don’t think I can ever fully let go of my girls, but I can let them spread their wings, I can find peace in it and I can move on with my life, figuring me out!
Just as Fall is coming and the seasons changing, this is our life, there will always be changes…
I am so ready for Fall, the cool, crisp air and dressing in cozy, layers! Sweaters, jeans, flannels & tee’s, booties & boots, leggings…
The Necklace ~is a silver long tassel with a Y in it that makes it adjustable with the silver ball where its splits.

But I also feel like I am ready for this new season of life. And like I said it wasn’t easy, I fought it, I cried many of times over it, but the only thing I can do is go with it! I don’t know what life holds for me as always being a Mom, hell I don’t even know what the next few months hold for me!
My goal this Fall is to take care of myself so that I can transition in this new chapter of life, to be loving & kind to myself in this new season of life as I get used to it, to nurture me & my mind, body and soul so that I can move on even when both my babies have left the nest!
And I will always have this guy!!! LOL
Have you ever had a similar experience? Or any changes in life where you find the transition difficult?
And what’s your favorite season?
I love Summer but I do look forward to Fall when the leaves & weather start to change!
And you can easily transition this look into Fall; throw on a jacket or cardigan over the blouse, add some high boots or longer white skinny jeans and you are good to go! Here are some ideas: (click on images for sources)
