Fall is in the Air Pink Saturday

I'm the last one to rush the seasons, generally wanting to savor every last drop of spring, summer and fall. But the the days are growing shorter and there are times I can feel a nip in the air. For the first time in months I am thinking of wearing longs pants instead of the capri pants I've so enjoyed for the last few months. Before too long I will I even be putting my sandals away because my toes will be too cold to wear open-toes shoes.  

I don't wear flip-flops -- my feet and flip-flops are not a good combination on New York City sidewalks -- but if I did I might have bought these pink cuties.

I'm not sure when I've ever bought pink shoes -- maybe canvas ones in 1982 -- but the bows and the bright color caught my attention. 

 I may indulge my desire for pretty in pink feet with the sequin slippers on the right. I have some similar ones, minus the sequins, in beige, but I think I can use something more fun to get me through next winter. 

I know it's the end of bathing suit season, but the pink suit on the bottom left looked good for aqua aerobics for seniors. Alas, the ones that were left were far from my size.

I do think I need a new bright pink sweater. I've been wearing a lot of hot pink all summer and enjoying it a lot, but I've got very little pink for the fall. Turquoise was the new black for the summer, but pink may be my new black for this winter. 

I hope you're enjoying the weekend. I started the day with services and then a trip to my favorite local iced coffee spot. I've had a quiet afternoon and am looking forward to an evening at the theater, one of my favorite activities. 

Please stop by and join the fun at Pink Saturday, one of the most fun places you can visit without leaving home. As ever, thanks for visiting and enjoy the weekend.

Enjoyed seeing so many interesting pinks. I live in flip flops and hate to see winter come.

I love those pretty pink sweaters. I just got 2 pairs of flip flops to take back to Florida and wear on the beach. It's fun to shop at the end of the season! Have a nice weekend! Hugs!

I hate the thought of going from pink, aqua and white to the blacks and browns of fall and winter. If only summer could last longer - especially this one which has been mostly pleasant.

We all need something colorful in our lives and I agree that pink would be a good choice. I've not had an occasion where I've thought of long pants yet. We are having a very hot and humid weekend here. Hope you enjoy your Sunday !

Hi Buttercup ! I love, love, love those pinks! I had to have two toenails removed last year (I would never recommend it!) but I move quickly so flip flops are a danger! I just use them around my own house.I hear the cold weather will be hard this year! Drat!
HPS and enjoy the Labor Day holiday as well as your week!

Hugs, Anne

Dear Carol, isn't life wonderful in that we can choose something that delights--like "pink"--and it shows up everywhere just so we might feel joy. Peace.

Pink is generally not a color I wear very often. I go for the brighter shades though and I loved the flip-flops (which I wear all the time.)

So many pretty pinks!
