You guys! I seriously cannot believe it’s already August. This summer has just flown by. I get so sad when I think about the fact that there is only a few weekends left before Labor Day. How did that happen?! I don’t even know what I’ve done this summer.. I feel like it’s just been a whirlwind of events, weekends away, visitors in town, and way too many things to do. I’ve heavily relied on cute dresses to get me through! When you have too much on your plate to even deal with figuring out what to wear (I’m raising my hand here..) , just wear a dress. It’s so easy and you look like you put forth effort! It can be our little secret that it’s just a cop out.. ;)

Don’t remind me of the impending season change! I’m having way too much fun for it to be fall already :/ Love the design of that dress on you though, especially with that killer necklace. Bauble Bar is amazing!

This dress is so cute. I like how it has the criss cross in the back. That little detail makes the dress that more lovely! I like dresses that have a peak-a-book back.

This dress is so pretty. Almost has a vintage feel to it. It looks great on you, plus with the statement necklace, complete package.

Plus you work with Lydia, she always finds the best locals. Love working with her.

Your hair is flawless and the dress is stunning! I love the pop of pink in the dress design. It’s subtle, but it definitely makes a statement. The statement necklace is cute as well. I could see it dressing up any plain tee and jeans combo!
