My sweet summer

Hard to believe I was wearing this dress just over a week ago and enjoying the summer heat. The temps have quickly plummeted and Fall seems to be pushing it's way in. While I still have a couple more summery looks to share, little white dresses with bare legs and open shoes are quickly becoming replaced by denim, long sleeves and jackets.

  1. Love the all white and the way you accessorized it with the dainty necklace and hat. It's still warm enough here during the day to get in a few more summerish looks.

  13. This weather sure can't make up its mind this year--love the white on you and the gold accents!!


  14. I'm swooning over the gorgeous light in these pictures. Your little white dress is so cute!

  15. Such a pretty dress on you!! I wish it would start to feel like fall here.


  16. That's such a versatile white dress. I am sure with some layering you can still pull it off for a few more weeks.

  17. Lovely, Lydia! Unfotunataly also no more white dresses and sandals here although it was a sunny day today. But it is really autumnal with low temperatures at night and misty mornings.

  19. It's crazy how once the cool weather hits, you forget what it was like to feel the summer sun! I love this white dress on you and your accessories are perfect!


  20. It's funny to hear that other parts of the country are actually getting fall temps. LA is holding on strong to warm weather. This look is the perfect summer look!

  24. For the past few weeks, summer has been holding out here - most of our days have been warm and sunny, although the coolness seems to have come on earlier every evening. And then today I woke up and fall had officially arrived. Gray, rain and temperatures low enough to need a light coat. Here's hoping you get a few more cheeky days of sun before the season is over, because I want to keep seeing your gorgeous summer photos!

  25. You do dresses like no one else! Love this summery look!

  26. Absolutely gorgeous outfit Lydia! Love the dress, hat and that purse!

  27. I know, I can't believe how quickly it went from hot to cool either! Who knows though, we may still have some warm days ahead. I love that dress, it's so pretty with your gold accessories.

  28. Such a cute dress. Summer literally swept by way to fast!
