End of August

I love that August has 31 days. I feel like that extra day makes a big difference somehow, as hard as it is to ignore that summer is reaching it's end, I'm not quite done with it yet.

Over the weekend I had a blogger lunch date with a couple of my favorite ladies and also made it to Lake Compounce, on their very last day of summer operation. Nothing like waiting until the last minute, right? Now that I've gotten my fill of roller coasters and flying swings I'm planning for the beach and intend on taking advantage of the summer temps which the weathermen have scheduled for the week ahead.

Sure, fall fashion is rolling out, and it's hard to ignore the draw; seasonal changes in retail make every store feel brand new again. Plus even if it's too soon to wear it, it's not too soon to shop for it! (Yes, tomorrow's post will be centered on Fall, but I'm not fully making the switch, you will be seeing so much more summer from me yet!)

  1. That sounds like it must have been a really fun time! And I love your white summer dress. I could never pull it off but it looks great.

  2. I love the shape of that dress! And that tiny little necklace is too cute!!
    And yea, I'm always up for buying Fall clothes, even in the middle of Summer, haha. But it doesn't mean I want Fall to come too quickly (even though it's my favorite season)

  3. What a beautiful dress and that bag is simply the cutest!

  4. Even though I am definitely ready for autumn, I can understand holding on to it, especially if you have a dress like that. Great bag! :)

  5. This white seersucker dress is the perfect finale of summer!

  6. Look at your gorgeous little eyelet shirtdress--and during Shirtdress Week on my blog nonetheless! Yours is my fave. Once again we accidentally blog post twinsie for the day. I love August 31st for the same reason. It seems like there is a last little glimpse of summer on that day, no?

  7. It's supposed to be in the 90s here this week. Summer feels so short sometimes we all need to take advantage of the warmer weather! It's not officially fall for a while! Love this gorgeous dress on you!

  8. The first thing I noticed was the purse. SO cute! Lovely dress too. Can't believe August is almost over...where did the time go?!


  9. Love the dress! (I have the same one. lol.)

  10. That purse is so cute and unique and I can't believe that dress is from Old Navy! We are having summer temps again. I am not ready for cooler weather quite yet.

  11. This is the perfect look for the end of August! The dress is fitted and cut so that it flares out at the knee which is super flattering. And the uniqueness of the purse (which is adorable btw) adds a hint of unexpectedness to an otherwise rather simple outfit! Love it!!


  12. That white eyelet dress is so pretty! Loving the shape!


  13. Gotta soak up summer while we can! I love the eyelet. Hope you had a lovely day at the lake!

  14. Way to end August with that pretty white dress! I'm getting excited for fall, but I won't be saying goodbye to summer just yet either.

  15. That dress is darling! I love eyelet :)

  16. Gorgeous dress! Such a classic. Love it!


  17. I need to use my white eyelet dress a few more times before summer rends. Love your dress and that great purse!


    Would love to see you Thursday for TBT Fashion link up.

  18. This dress is so pretty and the bag is a great pop of color!

  19. This dress looks like it was made for you, so pretty!

  20. Yes, the extra day definitely DOES make a difference! I'm happier than ever that today is the first and yesterday wasn't. It made me feel like I had an extra day at the end of the month I would have otherwise forgotten about to get some things done.

    I adore this all white look on you--the white is so beautiful! And how fun is that purse?

  21. The end of summer truly is bittersweet, but that one last day makes all the difference somehow - even though yesterday was rainy and cold here, it was still August and so I still felt like it was summer holidays; a time to take long walks rather than worrying about unfinished projects and unsorted laundry. Now that September is here, it's back to reality... But it does mean shopping :) This is the perfect last day of summer outfit. The dress couldn't be prettier!

  22. Awww I LOVE this dress!! How is it September already?!

  23. I love the bag! I agree that it's still too hot here for me to wear the fall stuff, but it's never too early to get shopping for it!

  24. This dress is so pretty.


  25. I love fall fashion so it's so hard not to buy all the fall things right now. But it will still feel like summer in CA for awhile so I hope I still see bloggers wearing summery things! This dress is super cute and Iove the uniqueness of that purse!
