dear summer…

To most, north easterners in particular, I suppose Miami seems somewhat like a fantasyland.  It’s still summer here in theory.

But like Jay-Z said, “this time apart is needed.”  I have news, I’m ready for you, summer, to take a hike.

To pay tribute summer’s end (please God end, cut the humidity already), I’d like to share another double purchase.

In July, I picked up a really cute/semi-juvenile pair of purple Kimchi Blue Scallop Sandals from Urban Outfitters.

They were originally priced at $59.99.  I got them for $19.99, approximately 66% off.

As it does ever year, traditional summer ended.  On a trip to the homeland, upstate NY, well into fall, at the end if September, I was in Urban Outfitters in Syracuse and they still had some remnants of summer in the sale section.  Knowing I’d be leaving my ankle booties and sweater at my parents house and heading back to the heat, I picked up a second pair in turquoise for the same price.

The full retail price would’ve been $119.98 and I paid $39.98.

Although, these are delightful, “like all good things, we must come to an end.”

Just joking, I’ll probably wearing them both well through Halloween while the rest of you youtube an old fave, dear summer.
