The true "Dog Days of Summer" are those in early July until about mid-August. They are usually the steamiest and brightest days of the year; quintessential Chicago summer. Well ladies and gents, the dog days are over, and soon fall will begin to descend. For moi, that means it's time to cram in every last dinner al fresco with my love, long walk with Charlie, and cherish the luxury of going coatless. While the fall fashion season is my absolute fave, I not quite ready to give up my rompers, sunglasses, and sandals (click to shop). I will literally be wearing all of my summer favorites until the temperatures are just too chilly to bear bare limbs!
