Longing for Autumn

I've noticed that crop tops are in, which makes the 90's kid in me giddy! I am loving every second of it...especially since it's been in the high 80's/low 90's lately. It's just so nice to have an open, cropped tee to let any sort of breeze in. It's definitely most welcome nowadays...and comfy too!

I loved this cropped sweater the second I saw it because the stripes and the cherries have that retro vibe to them. I didn't end up getting it when I first saw it, but after a month or so I noticed it was on sale and I finally bought it! It's kind of a little too much for the super hot weather since it is a sweater and has sleeves, but I still love it. It'll be a nice summer-to-autumn transition piece. I kind of wish the cherries were red, but the pink is cute too.

Life has kind of slowed down compared to last month's numerous festivities. I still have my summer to-do list on my mind, so I'm sure it'll all pick up once I start planning some day trips and get togethers.

I love summer, but I've been craving autumn lately. I will always be an autumn girl at heart. It's my favorite season and there are moments where I desperately yearn for the crisp air, crunchy leaves under my feet, and fresh apples in the orchards ready to pick. I definitely love autumn festivals and fairs better than summer ones. There will always be something magical and enchanting about autumn to me. Maybe it has something to do with being born in October. I will always feel this odd sort of bond or attachment to the season. I do miss it, but for now, it is still summer and it is still scorching hot, so let us enjoy crop tops and sundresses while we can. :)


  1. I come across TONS of cropped tops that I love but I can never seem to figure out how to wear them well. So I try to resist the purchases, haha. Luckily, you don't seem to have that problem!

    1. They've really been EVERYWHERE, lately! I love pairing them with high-waisted shorts. :)

  2. Autumn is definitely my favorite season as well, too bad that Panama doesn't have the seasons. ANyway, this cropped top looks adorable on you! Such a cute outfit.

    1. All this time I had no idea that you are in Panama! That's awesome! :) I'm always fascinated with places I haven't been and I love to travel. I hope to do a lot of travelling throughout my life. It sucks that you don't get autumn, though. :(
