Last Call for Summer


What I’m Wearing:

Dress: Maggy London, sold out (similar) / Shoes: Soda (similar) / Purse: Rebecca Minkoff (color sold out)
“Cha Cha Cha” Cuff: Kate Spade, old / Anchor Pearl Bracelet: Kiel James Patrick
Earrings: Kate Spade / Ring: Kate Spade, old

Love this dress. Love love love this dress! I wore it in Paris – paired with sandals (similar here) – on a fabulous and super romantic rooftop date and it was sheer perfection.

It’s September 1st today (in case you didn’t know). Which means it’s basically Labor Day. Which means that summer is basically over (despite whatever Dallas weather may believe). Which, in turn, means that it’s time to wish whites and linens a very fond farewell till 2016.

Though – let’s be real – I don’t really abide by either any of those rules. My favorite winter piece is my little winter white skirt. That skirt + my freakishly pale skin = I’m basically snow in human form.

I’m excited to try to update this super summery dress for fall. If you have any suggestions, please please please let me know in the comments below – I will seriously cry if I have to set this dress aside for 7 months! I know it basically screams “summer picnic” and “spring soiree”, but I think that with an olive sweater, a tan leather purse (like my bucket bag), and some cute little brown booties, I might be able to pull this dress into early fall. I simply cannot fathom not wearing this dress again until April! Far too long for such cuteness.

How do you update your favorite summer pieces for fall? Let me know in the comments!
