It's gettin' steamy in Chicago this week, so I'm pulling out my lightest and most-breathable clothes for venturing out into the world. But all I really want to do is slip on my favorite jeans, curl up in an oversized sweater and feel a little nip of cold on my face when I step outside. I'M READY FOR FALL.

These lace shorts have been well-worn this Summer. They're so comfortable and I love the feminine detailing that they add to an outfit. They'd be really cute in Autumn with a sweater and booties, too! And this top, let me tell you about it. My sister picked it up for me when she found herself at J.Crew's huge sale tent in the Spring. I was so jealous that she got to go, so she graciously picked up a few things for me, including this cute top I'd never seen in stores! I've never been to one of those giant pop-up sale tents before, but I'm pretty sure I would love it. Or it would remind me too much of shopping at Forever 21 and I would run away. I've heard of a couple stores that do them in the Chicago area, so I may have to search for one this Fall to go to.

Have you ever been to one? Was it what dreams, or nightmares, are made of?
