⟡ Oh how I miss you! ⟡
As the days grow shorter and close in on us…I get all sorts of wistful. Yes, there is an autumn in Tropica, but you have to live here a long time to feel and understand it. I grew up with traditional, northern climate Fall. Memories of acorn fights, walking home after school, shuffling through gorgeous colored leaves. Apples, pumpkins and brisk air which means: sweaters.
Here in Tropica, it’s T-shirts 365. As a former chic New Yorker, (women used to check my style when I strode down Madison Ave. to my job at the ad agency) I love style and fashion, and one of the things I can’t do in Tropica is layer and wear scarves. Pooh. That’s no fun at all.
You can imagine I’m getting all sorts of wistful as I look at all the fall clothing.
So what is “fall” in Tropica? The days grow shorter. The nights get cooler: I can actually sleep under a sheet! Fall means hurricane season. We keep our fingers crossed. There comes a moment, usually in October, when the deep humidity lifts and we can breathe again.
If I am lucky, I might be able to wear a pair of jeans and a long sleeve, cotton shirt. If I’m lucky. Otherwise, it’s linen, sleeveless or short sleeves.
Even though they are born and bred here, the Tropicans do complain about the heat. And when a day miraculously appears when they need to wear a cotton sweater, they shiver and complain about the “cold.”
Just wanted to share a longing with you. Hope you’ve enjoyed some of my fall fashion fantasy picks. Do you have any longings or wishes you want to share with us? Please do! We’re all friends here.
P.S. As a Tropican, I do have, however, a good collection of bathing suits and beach cover-ups.
