I don't want to feel like it's an end of a summer

Not too much to say today, just lots of photos...
Went to the beach last night for dinner and the sunset. Took the fisheye, since I haven't used it in a while.

fisheye to the point

Wore a strapless dress that I've had for three years, and hadn't really ever worn.
It is really quite long, but I sewed an elastic into the hemline and gathered it to create a short bubble hem.

  1. Your sister is so cute! I love that you dressed her for her first day- that's awesome.

    What's the age difference between you and your sister, if you don't mind me asking.

  4. That bubble dress is just lovely - you've got such a talent for seamstress-ing (something tells me that is SO not a word haha, but you get what I mean)!
    You and your sister are both blessed with such beautiful hair, you lucky ducks.
    Gorgeous pics.

  12. Wow, wow & wow. Love the photos, both of your outfits - and the outfit you styled for your sis is soooo cute!

    This time of the year is always sad in a way -
    It's funny the changing of the seasons from winter to spring - and spring to summer - is always so positive but summer to fall and fall to winter can be so negative.
    Maybe that's just my New England mindset.

  33. some of your prettiest pictures!!! what a cute sister, too!

  34. What a great set of pictures.
    You did a fantastic job with that dress and the bubble hem.
    When I saw your sister's first day of school picture it got me thinking whatever it was I wore when I was in school. I have to say that it is probably so much harder now and probably so much more pressure than before on what it is you wear.
    She looks really cute and its funny how she is wearing your stuff ..

  35. Absolutely love how your bubble-hemmed that dress. It looks fab! And so does the outfit you styled for your sister. That had to have made for one great first impression!

  36. Your Sister looks very cute, she's lucky having a great stylist as a Sister.

  37. Your sister looks really cute, I wish I had style like that when I was in high school or just not a dress code... I love the blue and yellow of your outfit, that combo is one of my all time favs :)
