How happy am I that summer's almost over? I know you probs wanna smack me for saying so, but I hate the summer. Everyone’s all like "blabbity blah, the beach rules!" But honestly, unless you live at one, you inevitably only end up going MAYBE three times if you REALLY put your back into it. Otherwise you spend 100+ days wiping away layers of sweat from your face and fighting frizz. But that’s just me. Fall fashions are superlatively better than summer. Duh hickey! NEVERTHELESS, before summer’s done, I will humor you sun-loving, in-line-for-melanoma people with ten last-minute summer dresses. I consider them last-minute since sweaters are showing up in stores already, and truly, this shit can't end soon enough.
