Hard to Believe it's Already Fall

I remember when I was a kid growing up in Massachusetts that it got cold before it ever was officially Fall. Not cold by most people's accounts, but the weather was definitely beginning to cool and leaves were starting to fall from the trees. Fall meant apple picking and warm apple cider. I love the memories of Fall as a kid. Sometimes I wish I was still living in Massachusetts so my kids could have those memories as well. But I certainly don't miss the cold.

I tend to get cold easier than most people and anything under 80 is to too cold for me. So needless to say living in Florida is perfect for me. I am not a fan of the cold, the snow, the winds, none of it. But I LOVE fall clothes. I love that I can mix some of my warmer summer clothes with some colder winter clothes and it is perfect for fall. I love than I can transition my makeup and nails to more of a Fall look. And my kids will have memories of the beach and still being outdoors in the heated Florida Fall, still running for the ice cream truck to get a cool treat. 

Here I am in the second week of Fall rocking a matching coral mani & pedi. (I know the horror! I have been in a matching mood lately!) It is still in the high 80's and low 90's here and wearing Fall clothes or dark nails, just doesn't feel right. I am ready, but with the nice weather, it just doesn't feel right. It'll be at least another month before we get into what everyone else considers to be the Fall.  So while everyone is rocking their Fall mani's now, I have one more summer mani to show you. Maybe you are hoping for some small reminder of summer or maybe you are enjoying the change of seasons, but either way hopefully you enjoy this coral manicure. At the very least it is a bright way to start the week. 


  1. That is a pretty coral! Is that one of your creations? When it's warm, I like wearing bright colors even if it is a fall month.
    Back in Phx, I usually wouldn't start wearing darker colors till mid-October because that's when I thought fall really started. I didn't realize till I moved to NY, that it starts way earlier!

  2. Thank you! It is a coral I created. I am really liking it - maybe it will make it's debut in the summer of 2011! HA!

  3. It is. Glad to know it isn't just me!

  4. Lime green is one of those polish colors I thought I would never like, but I actually love wearing! My manicure is more season appropriate now. Although not weather appropriate. Unless you could 78 Fall like temps. :)
