I love a long weekend... but I'd be lying if I said I was already counting down the hours until Friday. Not that it's wise to be wishing the days away, but the weekend days are so fleeting, and this was the first summer in a long time that I didn't manage to finagle a four day work week. I miss those, and I feel like I just missed so much this summer. I know it's mostly due to the passing hurricane, but this weekend was decidedly cold and fall-like, which has it's perks of lower humidity and not becoming a sweaty mess within five seconds of walking out the door, but knowing that the warm days are numbered makes me so sad.

  1. The weekend felt fall like here, too - I actually got out both a scarf and a jacket, and while I was happy to see both pieces again, I was sorry to actually need to wear them, rather than wearing them because I wanted to. I'm hoping that we'll get one last gasp of good weather before summer is gone for good, but like every year, the season is so fleeting. If nothing else, you've worn all kinds of lovely outfits this season, and this has to be one of my favourites. The off the shoulder top and lace-up sandals are fabulous!

  2. I am loving your look Lydia, so simple yet sophisticated and chic. The weather was cool in the DC area as well and my little girl was so bummed she didn't get to hang out at the pool for a few more days.

  3. This weekend the mornings feel like fall but the afternoons definitely felt like summer so I was like I'm not even going to try and dress for this! I ended up wearing definitely not chic-loungewear this weekend!

  4. Such a pretty look! I love the neckline of that top!
    And yea, I liked the weather this weekend though, but then again I love Fall, haha!

  5. That skirt is an amazing thrift find. Love the black and cognac.

    Sincerely, Jennie

  6. I'm trying to enjoy the last bit of warm weather. I love the spotted skirt.

  7. Great black and white look. I love that you added nude shoes. So sophisticated

  8. Love this black & white combo and that top is perfect on you.

  9. This weekend was rainy as can be for me !
    This thrifted skirt was such a great find. On the bright side, now that fall is coming you can wear it with black tights and a black turtleneck.

  10. You can't go wrong with a classic black and white! Love the cognac accessories you added!

  11. It definitely felt like fall here this weekend too, and I'm not ready for the summer to end quite yet! Loving that skirt!


  12. It was definitely chilly and fall-like here too (which I loved, of course!). I am noticing that it's getting dark a bit earlier though, which is always my biggest complaint about this time of year.

  13. It's always hard to say bye to summer but it isn't over yet! Enjoy warm weather outfits for a while longer!

  14. this look is gorgeous and i'm in love with the skirt!

  15. So in love with your skirt, you look amazing! I think this weekend is supposed to be hot again...last weekend was such a bummer weather wise.

  16. How fab do you look! I am obsessed with this skirt on you so chic! Happy Wednesday!

  17. Totally agree... I am looking forward Friday already, too! Our secret. ;) I saw you were on the fence about these heels but love how it lightens up this look compared to a black heel during this time of year. Really pretty!

  18. Such a fun skirt! Love the black and white with the tan. I'm personally so ready for fall.

  19. Very pretty skirt and chic look overall! Perfect for the weather, and perfect for fall as well!


  20. I'm excited for fall but sad for less daylight :-(. Love this bag, though - the tan and red lining is so pretty!

  21. This summer has sped by for me too. I feel like I've done a lot of fun things, but not as much as I wanted, as always. I love this pretty look--the spotted skirt is so fun and those lace-up sandals are gorgeous!!

  22. Beautiful!! Love your outfit XO. Stop by and linkup @

  23. Seriously, you have the funnest skirts! <3
