Last Sip of Summer

 To say I've gotten behind on the blog would be an understatement, though I feel like I've gotten behind in every facet of life this year. The 12th anniversary of this blog came and went earlier this month - I had every intention of dedicating a post to it as I've done in the past, which clearly didn't happen. It's easier to be in denial of time passing right now. 


I have a few more summer looks to share, so let's pretend the air is still warm, the nights are still long, and we don't need to buy new sweaters.

  1. I hope you have another few weeks of warm weather before the cold sets in - you always have the best summery outfits (I mean this dress dress is so pretty).

  2. I think we're allowed to let things fall behind this year. My blog has been suffering too but it's kind of hard to do what we do when you can't really go out that much.

  3. Congratulations on your 12th blog anniversary!

  4. Happy 12 years, that's absolutely incredible and even if you didn't have time to celebrate it, congrats! We're celebrating for you!

  5. I always seem to have a few extra summer looks after fall weather begins! That dress is amazing on you! Happy 12 years too!

  6. Fabulous look Lydia !
    Cheers to many more years in blogging. It's ok to be behind - this year we can forgive ourselves for it all.

  7. Congrats on your 12th blog anniversary! Your style looks chic yet comfy. In love with your striped dress and winning smile��

  8. What beautiful striped dress on you! Congrats on so many years of blogging as well! :)

    Hope your week is going well :)

  9. I'm in the process of writing a post very similar to this one as I type this. I still have a back log of summer photos, but in reality, summer has very much come and gone - there are clouds rolling outside my window, orange leaves falling, and the wind is howling as it blows them down. Anything I can do to pretend that none of this isn't happening, even temporarily, makes me very happy. (In fact, my distaste for the coming seasons is so well known that one of my birthday gifts this year was a Happy Light. Maybe it will work? Who knows.) All that to say that I look forward to seeing every single one of the summer photos you still have to share, and to pretending along with you :)

  10. This looks so fun dear! Love your outfits, and your bag!
    Thanks for sharing
