This week, I’ve watched as neighborhood kids have lined up for the school bus in the morning. Walking to my car in the evening, I felt a very faint cool breeze, like the whisper of the season to come.
The summer is drawing to a close.
As the summer turns to fall, I am eager to wear all the fun summer sandals, dresses, skirts, sleeveless tops and crops I can while it’s still hot. Like the last song at the prom, I want to squeeze in one last dance with these beautiful hues.
Because of the heat we still have here in Alabama, I will still wear skirts with sandals and short-sleeves or sleeveless for a little while. But as a nod to what’s to come, I’ll throw on a lightweight blazer from time to time, upping the professional ante of these flowy looks and protecting against the coming chill, even if it takes longer for it to come here than elsewhere!

Kaitlin Bitz, who interned with my department when I worked at B.A.S.S., shot these photos in downtown Birmingham, Alabama, around the corner from the Alabama Theatre. If anyone in the area needs photos taken, I highly recommend working with Kaitlin!
