Saying a Long Goodbye to Summer

Saying a Long Goodbye to Summer

Depending on whose description you read, those hazy, smoky days, followed by warm clear nights that occur in late September through early November occur during a season called Indian Summer.  The US National Weather Service describes this as taking place in late-September to mid-November.  Others say it’s the period that occurs when the weather heats back up after the first frost. Lately, people have been calling it a throwback to a time made popular by Charlotte Bronte in her novel Villette. In any case, it signals a change in seasons, a time when the earth quiets down after a wild and rambunctious summer and fall leaves quietly turn splendid gold.  It’s sweater weather, a time to start putting away the short shorts, light weight strapless tops and swim wear in favor of heavier fabrics and top coats.

Scientist say a moving, cool shallow polar air mass is converting into a deep, warm, stagnant high-pressure system which causes the haze and accounts for the large temperature swing between day and night in mid-November.  Those used to colder climates remark on the unseasonably warm weather; it might feel like the warm days of summer are making a comeback.  The high for the day could be in the low 80’s, but that will last only for part of an hour, before it drops down again.  It’s on those days that you know you’ll need a sweater in the evening.  It’s the perfect time to shop Talbots for those knits, slacks and cable sweaters that bring you so much comfort, you welcome them back to the front of the closet like a long-lost friend.  When you do shop Talbot’s, don’t forget to search Groupon first.  There you’ll find Groupon codes for discounts on items you’ll need to boost your fall wardrobe, or to buy gifts for a friend.

With savings of over 60% off select merchandise, you’ll want to shop Groupon first so your money goes further on the items you need and use every day.  And you’ll find enough tees, knits, tunics, sweaters and pants to carry you through the end of summer, into Indian Summer and beyond.
