August Shopping

August is the most difficult month of the year. It is way too hot and humid (at least in New York), so you are waiting for the summer to be over to be done with this heat. However, you are dreading the summer being over because you still have a long to-do list of summery things and you aren’t ready for the cold!

Shopping-wise it’s even more complicated, because it’s too hot to shop for fall clothes and too late to buy things for the summer. However, as the new season arrivals hit the store, I find myself gravitating towards air-conditioned havens called shopping malls and slowly adding new things to my closet for September and October. 

Here are some of the currently trending items that caught my eye this week:
