Make a splash

In an effort to cram more summer into my summer, this past weekend I attended a local Oyster Festival, spent time at the beach, rode a tandem bicycle, consumed lots of ice cream, watched the sunset, and wore printed sun dresses.

I have a slight addiction to printed dresses. It's possible you will notice this should you flip back through my last few posts. I feel I should wear them all at least once per summer, so I still have about a dozen more to get through in these next few weeks. Some can transition into fall, which is great, but purple tie dye is strictly summer in my mind.

  18. Your weekend sounds like it was something out of a Martha Stewart magazine! What a perfect way to close out the summer. I'm with you - I love fall clothes but I always get a little sad when people give up their summer clothes early. It's still hot outside so let's enjoy it! And the dress is gorgeous!

  23. I have to agree, purple tie dye is strictly summer, but that's part of what's so fabulous about it. The dress just screams summer, especially with the sun setting over the water in the background. I feel like I would be more enthusiastic about summer, somehow, if my summer was set somewhere as pretty as yours seems to be :)

  34. Well this dress looks AMAZING on you and I love the pattern. Very pretty. I feel like I want to cram all of the summer I can into the next few weekends too. But school already started here just today so I feel a little more of the "no more summer blues".

  35. What a fun dress! Great idea to cram as much summer activities & clothes as you can. Fall will be here before you know it.

  36. oh, my sounds like you're having wonderful summer. Would love to be there and have all these experiences as well.

    I have soft spot for printed sun dress. Over weekend noticed one in shop window, still thinking about it, yet not sure should I get it, weather is getting cooler.

    You look stunning in this gorgeous tie dye sundress. I'm sure you turned many heads on the street.
