Better late than navy

Over a week into September and I'm still debuting summer dresses. Good thing the warm weather is still going strong as I try to get them all in. This little navy dress was only blogged once last summer, but I wore it quite a bit, including during my brief stint on TLC (go ahead and watch if you need a good laugh today).

I'm definitely excited for the weekend ahead, on Saturday I will be celebrating my Nephew's first birthday and on Sunday heading to New York for the extent of my Fashion Week fun, the RewardStyle party followed by the Mode Media party. So much for starting to move into my new apartment and do all my crazy furniture DIYs, which could potentially also include reupholstering a chair I just saw on CraigsList...

  1. YOUR NECKLACE! It's fabulous! Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. I love that you have enough summer dresses that you can actually still be debuting some this late in the season. And I'm also envious that you're still having lovely weather! We've had a few nice days in a row this week, which after two weeks of storms seems like a blessing, but overall, the temperatures have overwhelmingly lowered, the leaves are yellowing and it feels more like autumn every time I step outside. I think today will officially be my last day in sandals - so please keep these summery outfits coming :)

  3. So pretty, and accessorized perfectly!!


  4. Love the dress!! Looks so good with the necklace too! :D Yay for fashion week! Can't wait for the RS party :D

  5. So glad this lovely dress is coming out again! It's a beaut! Love the pretty accessories also! Enjoy your weekend Lydia!

  6. You definitely can't go wrong with a classic navy dress, and I love this one! I'm glad the weather is cooperating and letting you hold on to summer a bit longer. Technically we still do have a couple more weeks!

  7. I have this dress and love it! It's so comfortable and goes with anything! Love it with the brown accessories!

  8. I love the brown accessories - I never think of brown and navy together but it really works. And good luck with all your DIY projects!
