Neon summer

There are still several things I want to do before this summer officially comes to a close. I still haven't had a proper beach day, gone to an amusement park, had a picnic, or gone on a boat. Some of these things are just popping into my head as I write this, now that the last week of August has commenced and the reality that fall will be here before I know it is sinking in.

These photos are representative of crossing a different item off the list, watching the sunset at the beach. While it was not the most spectacular showing, it was peaceful, relaxing, and just what we need sometimes between work and errands (and outfit photos).

  1. I always leave it until the last few weeks to cross items off my summer 'to-do' list and honestly it makes for the most fun weeks! You look lovely! That skirt is gorgeous!

  2. Who doesn't love a good sunset! :) That sounds like a perfect evening. And loving the bright skirt, although I could never pull it off.

  3. the green skirt is so cute!! you look adorable Lyd

  4. Those sandals! I truly will never tire of them, they're just gorgeous and they seem to look perfect with everything you pair them with - although really, how could they not? And I have to say, I'm surprisingly fond of your skirt, too. If there is any colour I like that is truly outside of my normal comfort zone it is, strangely, neon yellow and I always love seeing the different ways that people wear it because to me, it's a shade that is unexpectedly versatile. And have to say, I think you've proven me right with this look ;)

  5. Beautiful look! Denim and neon go perfect together!

    With love,
    Suzy ♥


  6. That skirt definitely says "summer"! Love the panama hat too. I hope the summer weather lasts longer for you this year so you can check everything off your list! Or you can come visit me in California where its summer weather until November!

  7. Ooh a beach sunset sounds heavenly, I'm glad you got to pause for a bit to take it in! Love this neon + denim combo, it's been a favorite of mine this summer too. I hope summer weather stays so you can complete your wishlist!

  8. Aw yes--the "what I still haven't done and summer is almost over" list. I know it well. I really love the bright skirt and dark denim and that bag is too cute!

  9. That's a pretty ambitious summer to do list - your skirt seems super appropriate for an amusement park visit (I love it!).

  10. I always do the same thing and start cramming in the summer activities in August! Love your neon skirt! Such a cute look!

  11. Every time I see you wear that skirt, I want it !
    And since our "rainy season" will be cut short, I too have a list of pendings before the summer season arrives 4 months earlier… this is mostly yard work and planting.

  12. I always love watching the sunset over the ocean! It's so gorgeous! I think next summer I need to make a summer bucket list because there are so many things I didn't get a chance to do this summer. Your outfit is super cute! I love the color of your skirt!

  13. What a beautiful outfit! Love your photos!

  15. I'm the same way every single Summer! I always make a list of things I want to do, and then I don't end up doing half of them!

    I love the way you styled the skirt. It's a chic way to wear neon

  16. So cute! I have that skirt (and in red as well) and they are two of my favorite things.
