Fashion: Season flashback – Summer 2015

Posted on Updated on

September 20th… last day of summer… the season is now well and truly over… no more white jeggings, white linen dresses or bare-backed dresses… but I just want one last flashback… pretty please… Summer definitely is my favorite season (as you could read in this post) so one last look at my summer outfits-of-the-week can’t hurt, will it ? Above each image you get a link to the outfit-post if you want to see more pictures of it.

At the bottom of this post you see a poll… I do hope you take the time to vote as I am so curious which outfit is the winner of the summer season !

(There should only be 13 outfits in this post as one season equals 13 weeks… but as I started blogging just before summer, so I added all 15 outfits posted up until the beginning of autumn !)

Love, Kathleen

“I love summertime more than anything else in the world. That is the only thing that gets me through winter, knowing that summer is going to be there” – Jack McBrayer

Level 1… accomplished !

I seriously think there should be a support group for people who are having problems with facing the fact that summer doesn’t last forever… I would soooo definitely be a member !!! Summer is my favorite season and every year, when summer is nearing its end, I get a bit melancholic… I simply don’t like the days shortening and the mornings getting chillier. I just want to hold on to the summer season for as long as possible… which isn’t always easy as from mid August, you are confronted with it everywhere, whether you like it or not. In magazines, in shops, in the papers, on the internet, everywhere you look you there it is… “summer is coming to its end”, “back to school”, “what to wear next fall”. I try to ignore this for as long as possible and I am simply denying the fact that summer comes to an end. Read how I try to adapt to fall and winter!
