so long, summer… and autumn arrives

so long, summer... and autumn arrives

 

 

Whether you were enjoying the summer sipping cape cods in… Cape Cod? Or maybe Martha’s Vineyard?  Or coastal Maine… The point is you were either somewhere non-tropical with mainly tolerable weather, or you were sweating the days away in stormy south Florida like me.

Hopefully you soaked up as much summer fun as possible and are ready to bid adieu, as today marks the final day of this fabulous season.  I am more than ready for the cooler weather, which has not quite arrived yet down here, and I mark this last day of summer with a tribute to a wonderful summer color: white.  Fear not the old adage that has us packing away our whites once Labor Day hits.  Oh no, I do not abide by this silly rule.  To prove that white can transition far beyond the three golden months, I’ve put together a montage of awesome clothes and accessories that can transition beautifully into fall.  And just for good measure, some gorgeous white home interiors to keep the inspiration flowing.

Worry not- summer may be over, but summer whites never fade (as long as you wash with bleach).

This white bedroom with whitewashed shutters is gorgeous.  The photographs behind the bed lend some personality and grittiness to an otherwise pristine room.
