It’s officially been a YEAR since Keith and I packed up and headed north (hah. north) all the way to Clinton, MS to start his new job and our new life. It’s been such a fun year. Lots of up and some downs too. We learned a lot about ourselves and each other. Something about packing up and moving away – just the two of you – really makes things feel ‘real’! Today, I want to share a life update – a bit more about our last year and some of the things that we’ve learned, done, and some adorable photos of my puppies!
The summer to fall transition is 100% my favorite ‘fashion transition’ of the year. But it can also be challenging. We’re over here wearing lots of pastels, whites, and light weight fabrics and all of the sudden labor day happens and the fashion ‘lawmakers’ expect us to just change. This is especially hard in the south because the weather stays soooo hot until at least mid October. Well, if you’ve followed along the blog for the last few years then you know that I’m a rule breaker when it comes to fashion. White should be worn all year round and open toed shoes are the BOMB! So, I wanted to put together a post to help you guys make the transition as well. I’ve got tons of the cutest rompers (This is the one from this post!) in my closet that I just don’t want to stop wearing and I’ve got the perfect solution for wearing them into the next season. So keep reading for my tips on how to wear your Summer rompers into Fall!
Technically, Summer doesn’t officially end until September 22. But who pays attention to the official dates, anyway (ME!). Even though we have over a month left, with the kids going back to school and Keith’s 2nd year as a professor looming near, it sure does feel like something great is ending. I’m reminiscing on the best days of summer with the 2 piece striped outfit from Zaful and some of the best ‘golden hour’ sunlight I’ve seen all year. And I’ve come up with a bucket list of sorts for 5 Things to Do Before the End of Summer.
I’m not sure if there is anything I like more than stripes in my wardrobe. Every fall, I order a new striped tee and end up with several more striped items before the weather even really gets cold. I get this ‘love of all things striped’ from my momma. I would totally describe her style as classic preppy. We used to joke that she only wore white, navy, black, red, and striped combinations of those colors! I tend to branch out a bit more when it comes to color (but honestly not much)! When I saw this Striped Summer Dress from Zaful, I knew I had to have it. The smocking reminds me of my childhood but the off the shoulder sassiness brought it right back around to 2017!
Happy Thursday! As I sit here at my desk writing this post, I’m literally drooling over the picture that we took at this pool in Seacrest Beach, FL! I vacationed there several times when I was younger and the pool always seemed magical to me. It certainly wasn’t a disappointment this year! I’m already ready to pack up me new CUSTOM Hello Sunshine Sequin Solstice hat and head back. And because I love you guys so much, I’ve teamed up with Abby from Sequin Solstice to GIVE AWAY one of these awesome hats! They are the cutest.. Check it out!
