Weather and emotion

A mixture of weather and emotions last week kept me from taking outfit photos. Seven days, not a single picture taken. Even worse is that when I try to think back to what I wore, other than one grey dress I happened to wear twice, every thing else escapes me. Is that what it's like to stop taking outfit photos; the memory of what you had on leaves your head the moment the day ends and the clothes get tossed in the dirty laundry basket?

Just like that, the last full month of summer is here. August. Even just to speak it, it feels heavy, thick with all the summer dreams that haven't happened yet, weighted down with fall on it's tail. How is summer always seems to move so swiftly while all the other seasons take their time?

  2. very nice dress dear..i like it so much

  3. July flew by and I'm sure it will be the same in August! Pretty dress.

  4. Love the stripes on just the bottom on this dress. Sometimes I think it is so nice to skip outfit photos for a bit.

  5. Totally agree with you. Summer is short specially this one I feel it flew by. On the bright side love your dress and sandals. Have a nice week :)

  6. Oh summer... it always slips away from us far too quickly. And while I can't complain or say that I've missed out on any my big summer dreams this year, I feel like that's because I long ago gave up on accomplishing anything on a summer bucket list. I work through summer because I don't like competing with the whole world for a view when I go on vacation, so the reality is, summer, while beautiful, is a time I always spend at home while I wait for my next vacation and fun time in the fall. Still, it does seem to be going far too quickly!

  7. I say it every time but those heels are sooo cute! Love when you wear them! They also compliment this dress perfectly! And I can't believe it's August already either...whaaat??

  8. Even I get the sense that summer is rushing by really fast this year (and I usually can't wait for summer to end!). Don't worry though, there's still time for some summer dresses.

  9. I can't believe August is already here, its like this summer has flown by. I'm just dreading the leaves turning!
    You look great in this dress and those sandals are so cute!
    Hope you have a great week ahead.

  10. It's so frustrating when the weather doesn't cooperate---doesn't it know that we need to be outside to take photos?
    But this outfit is fab!! Those shoes really make me smile!!

  11. this dress is so pretty, but since I live in South FL the best time of the year is coming, it will be warm but the killer heat will be gone.


  12. that dress is just the cutest! love the heels and how you styled it all!

  13. This dress is super flattering on you and I love the colors! I can't believe summer is coming to an end either - it feels like it just started!


  14. The dress, the shoes, it's perfectly styled!

  15. I agree that summer always flies by. I adore those shoes!


    Hope to see you Thursday for TBT Fashion link up.

  16. I know the feeling - taking outfit photos takes time! Time that is unfortunately scarce. Funny how the summer goes so quickly even though the days are longer. Beautiful dress and shoes. Have a lovely week!

  17. Those shoes were made for that dress! And I am glad I am not the only one with difficulty remembering what I wore. Often I will snap a quick pic or write it in the notes section of my phone if I want to take photos later!

  18. Yes I know --- time has flown. Its almost 2017. Fack.
    I love this dress and the Oh Deer shoes - you had not worn - I think - since last year.

  19. I know it--if I don't record it on Instagram or the blog, it's like I didn't wear it. I'm always impressed that you're able to share as many (awesome quality, btw) outfit photos as you do on the blog. Love this cute retro-feel look!
