September, Finally

I've been waiting for fall to come for a while now and in August, even as school is starting, I feel bad for wanting to bring out jackets and boots.  I feel as though I need to relish in the last few days of summer because i know I will be missing them when I'm walking through snow and slush.  So now that it's September, I feel as if I can finally act upon fall. Today my mom and I went shopping and I got a very stylish military jacket. I love it, and I'm wearing it right now, even though it's in the 70s outside. Its olive green and is double breasted and has the round gold buttons on the front. It's a very literal translation of an old military jacket, but the fabric, which is soft and stretchy, makes it a bit more laid back. Military is obviously here to stay, so I didn't feel bad buying it. Plus, I really really needed a new jacket, and the price tag helped a bit with the persuasion, too (the jacket was only $20.00 at Nordstrom Rack). I have a couple other fall trends that I've been waiting to bring into my closet, and this seems like the perfect time to do it. Sequins, military green, and ankle boots are just a few of my favorite trends lately.  Here are just a few samples of what I will be buying soon.
