Goodbye to Summer

Fashion Week starts this morning.


It’s rainy, and cloudy, and cool.  If this weather holds out for the next week, summer is definitely over for me; I won’t be back in New York until October.


I’m so ready to start layering and wearing something other than Converse and shorts.  Wearing grown man pants again!  Having fun with fall fashion!


I hope you had a great summer.  Let’s do it again next year.

    Don’t know about the Converse and short shorts but you do look lovely in that striped bikini!

    Love summer too! Sad it’s over in NY!
    Can’t wait to wear new fall acquisitions, but in Barcelona it’s still hot and humid. School starts next week so then summer will be officially over.
    Great way to carry your “companion” on your bike!

    The Summer is over, and as you say it is time to wear man pants again…that’s right, and sportcoats and sweaters and thicker wool suits and many other great garments!

    Although I sniff as I wave a final goodbye away to summer, I feel like i’m turning around and dacing joyously around the house because I can FINALLY start wearing my fall wardrobe. Hellooooo fall.

    I agree- ready for apple cider, cozy sweaters and deep rich nail polish.
    Great photo to end the summer-
    Thank you!

    Very cool this pict!
    I’m also totally ready to wear sweaters, pants, scarf, and so other many ‘fall/winter clothes’ !^^

    This made me laugh. The Sartorialist version of Mae West sashaying up a flight of stairs with “The End” superimposed over her be-hind.

    But, yes, the end of summer is always a poignant moment. In my city, the arrival of Fall for those not involved in the “back to school” rush is the start of the Toronto International Film Festival.

    Ha ha! Literally – the end!

    Except for those of us trapped in the heat of Southern California. Hello Fire Season! It was actually too hot for the beach yesterday… Won’t be wearing Fall for FNO tonight, that’s for sure…

    in new york, the rain has poured for days, the clouds and the heavens lamenting some torrid loss we cannot understand. the touch of gentle skin in the wind is discard, for the layers of the unknown future months.

    It’s always hard to say goodbye to summer, but what a better excuse for that than saying hello to the new autumn/ winter fashion collections?

    Let’s see what the fashion weeks around the world have prepared for us! :-)

    I hate to see summer go and I hate the thought of “layering” all those clothes. Yep they look nicer, but I still love wearing my shorts and sandals. I love the freedom that summer brings in so many ways, clothing or otherwise. I’m already counting the days ’til spring!

    I like the summer but I LOVE the winter so I can’t wait to wrap myself in a big knitted cashmere jumper again!!!

    In South Africa our summer is only starting now. We had an ice cold winter – couldn’t even wear my lovely winter jackets, it was too cold. But I am very much looking forward to the summer (and the thunder storms), although it is always sunny in central South Africa.

    I’m ready for the concept of fall, but not so much the realities that come with it, I must say.

    In the meantime, take some great shots of NYFW, looking forward to them!

    So sad about summer ending but bring on the grown man pants! That should be exciting!

    Check this look out for fall:

    The end of summer !
    I start wearing make-up again. And nailpolish! (and just cosmetics in general come back into my life)

    I love the photo… So appropiate! But despite the weather, the clothes for next season is incredible. Can’t wait for layering either

    Boo! I don’t want it to end, and your photo just really hammered that home. It’s beautiful.

    Goodbye Summer. Happy Fall to all. That rhymes. I didn’t know Scott wore short shorts.I thought dudes kind of kept to regular length shorts or longer. Do men wear them in Europe or something?

  48. Martine

    September 8, 2011 at 11:26 pm

    Could we see a picture of you in short shorts, Scott?

    I’ve got to say this is one of the finest photos you’ve ever taken. The way she is riding perfectly balanced with the surf board to one side, her bottom half of the bikini just showing, then a hat. It’s startling and evocative of summer ending, all at the same time. And of course, the lovely pun on “the end.” Well done.

    its only the start of converse and shorts her in Manly (Australia), can’t wait, have been jealous of you for the last 4 months but now the tables have turned!

    As was said about Sweden, summer never came to Norway either. Oh well, yesterday I bought my first scarf of the season, and it looks so good I can’t wait to put it on :)

    Please, you are depressing me. Let’s not push it just yet! Wait until the first frost, at least!

    I’m with Annina. As far as I’m concerned, excessive heat and humidity could just bid “adeus”.

    It’s good to hear that I’m not the only person glancing longingly at my collection of vests and corduroys! Time to start wearing ‘real’ clothes again…where I work went from business formal to business casual in the past year….I miss it already! Is that strange?
