The summer is over half over, and I still haven't gone on, or planned any vacation. Is there still hope, or am I destined to be blogging work looks through September?

I would really like to go to Cape Cod, I have a dress I've been saving. I know, it's so silly to save clothes, but I bet it's something we are all a little guilty of!

  8. Love the Shirtdress, this color looks great on you! Oh yes, I always try to save an outfit for a vacay/special occasion. :)

  9. Lydia, we all need a vacation! Even if it's a little one. Go! Go! Go! love that shirt dress and belt. Looks awesome together.

  10. TOTALLY guilty! I also went on vacation . . . but didn't blog any of my vacation looks. I'm bad. But I had fun nonetheless. And I realized this weekend, as it was all cold and deary that summer is coming to a fast close and though I did go on vacation, there is still a slew of other things I wanted to do that never got done. The perpetual summer story I suppose. I love LOVE this green dress on you Lydia. And the leopard shoes were a great accent to it.

  11. This is a great color on you Lydia! I am dreaming of vacation too!

  13. I am SO guilty of saving clothes for certain places/occasions. It just makes them that more special.

    Hope you get to make that trip to the Cape!

  14. There are few things I like more than a good shirt dress, and this one is fantastic. Love the color on you too!


  15. Great dress on you. I am also guilty of saving special items for the right occasion.

  16. This summer has flown by! Hopefully you get to go on that vacation soon. Love the leopard shoes with the green.

  17. just love this look especially the bag! I save clothes as well, usually I have a specific idea of where should I wear that item for the first time!! :)


  18. Love the color of your dress! There's still time for a vacay or even a fun day trip somewhere. I save outfits for specific occasions too.

  19. Oh I definitely save clothes too! I have no really vacation this summer either, but I did make it to the beach yesterday and I am planning for a weekend in Boston next month.

    Here's hoping you get to go on vacay soon!

  28. it's never too late for vacations yes summer is half over but it's not over you can so save this outfit for your vaca too cause it's gorgeous!

  29. gorgeous color!!!

    i save looks too. i think it's a blogger thing. you want the perfect look, for the perfect scenery for the perfect post. but i am going to stop doing that. clothes sit in my closet way to long.

    summer getaways are nice, but you save money by going a little after or before peak season :)

  30. :) Totally Guilty of that ! :)
    I just love this color on you! You look great!

  31. i haven't been on a legit vacation either, haha! i've been focusing on looking for a job. ;)

    p.s. that's a gorgeous color!

  32. I hope you get to take a vacation sometime in the next four weeks! Although where you live is so naturally beautiful, especially in the summer, it wouldn't be so bad to stick around :) And as for saving clothes, do you have any tips? I'm one of those people who practically wants to wear their new things out of the store! Like your dress, for example; I love it, and if I'd bought it today, I'd be wearing it as I type this :)

  33. I'm feeling you with the vacation less summer, Lyddie, my Lyddie! I think we've got a family trip up north to the Dakotas and Montana coming quickly, though. I hope you can squeeze a mini vacation somewhere in your busy schedule! And yes, we all do save clothes. I save mine for special days, too, like birthdays and the like. :)

    I looove aqua on you! That dress is so cute and looks nice ad breezy for the summer. <3

  34. I am guilty for saving clothes too, so i get it.
    Do you have a list of places where you'd like to go ?

  35. Is there a color that you don't look fabulous in?! I think NOT! I loooove this emerald green on you! Oh yes, I'm guilty of saving clothes too. I hope you do manage to take some vacations before summer is over!

  36. Oh we all save things now and then. This is a fab color for you. I love this dress and your accessories.
