Default 'The last rose of summer'

The title of this thread is a phrase my Mom would use to describe me or one of my sisters when we tried to extend the season by wearing shorts or sandals into the fall!

"You look like the last rose of summer!"

Any last roses out there?

[Warm-weather states not included in this one! ]

When I lived in Northeast Ohio, my daughters would wear their Birkenstok sandals with heavy socks in the winter. And it was tradition for the kids to wear summer shorts to the Valentine's Day dance every year.

we're in the midwest and we do wear our Crocs with socks in the winter, but I don't think that's the same as sandals. I will admit that I find it a little odd that some of the women at work are still wearing sandals.

Being on the Gulf Coast, I get so style confused this time of year! The highs are still warm, but it is FALL! My summer clothes look like summer clothes and I just can't pull out the winter stuff. It is hard to find the in-between items that are temperature-correct and seasonal accurate! My Last Rose of Summer could go all the way to January .

Well, I am going up to Ohio in a couple weeks, and I am trying to figure out what to pack for shoes!
Almost all my shoes are sandals.
So I may arrive in long pants and a sweater -- and sandals.
With the average temps in the low 50s for October, it may be a little nippy for this Last Rose.

fruitcake, you could end up with a case of froze toes! I'm in the midwest, too, and it's been pretty frosty in these parts

Hmmm ... thanks for the warning.
I do have a pair of leather short boots that work with pants.

It's still hot here, almost 90 today. I refuse to wear fall stuff til it cools off sufficiently.

We had a taste of fall this a.m. -- temps hovering at 70 and no humidity!
I wore a long-sleeved cotton top in a very fallish burnt orange shade!
