So Long, Summer!

{ON dress (similar) & hat (similar) | f21 jacket | qupid sandals | fossil watch | stella & dot bracelet}

Things I will miss about summer as demonstrated by these photos:  Hanging out on our friends' rooftop in NYC without getting cold, having silly photo shoots accompanied by an amazing sunset (without getting cold), and wearing in public what is essentially a glorified nightgown masquerading as a chic and stylish maxi dress (and, yeah, without getting cold).

We're leaving today for a quick little road trip up to Buffalo.  If traditions hold true, then there is a distinct possibility that summer will end while I'm away and it'll be cold by the time I get back.  I promise to take full responsibility for any seasonal transgressions.

See you next week!

Making the Cut

{sears dress (cute option) | f21 jacket | o'neil sandals (similar) | fossil watch | stella & dot bracelet}

If you've been keeping a keen eye on my hair, (because I'm sure you've all just been simply glued to my mane) then you might have noticed that I got it cut.  It was pretty long, and after a less than desirable and kind of pricey haircut, it was looking a little funky.  Luckily my (super, amazing, talented hair dresser of a) sister came to the rescue a few days later when she was here for a visit.  She dyed it the totally rocking ombre you see here and fixed the chop job the best she could, short of gluing hair back on (which, btw, she is totally qualified to do).  Basically, she stopped me from bursting into tears any time I'd catch my reflection in a shiny surface.  Moral of the story: if you have a sister who's an amazing hairdresser but lives 1,000 miles away, it might not be a bad idea to only get your hair cut once or twice a year when you get to see her.  And if you live in Ft. Lauderdale, then definitely make an appointment with Jen at The Factory Salon.

Touchy Feely

**Have you entered the Chicwish giveaway?**

{sears top | ON cardi (similar) | express diy cutoffs | payless shoes (similar) | jessica simpson bag | fossil watch | f21, stella & dot, target bracelets}

I don't know about you, but I'm a big fan of texture.  I'm the one in the museum who occasionally ignores the signs kindly asking us to refrain from touching the artwork.  I'm the kind of person who sticks her hands wrist-deep into containers of bird seed at the pet shop, or who crouches down to touch lamb's ear every time she spots the plant.  The one who appreciates feeling a crumbly brick wall, a particularly soft cat, or a skein of nubby yarn.  The person who needs to feel and touch anything that looks like it'd be interesting to feel or touch.  The girl who spied this top and was overjoyed at the different textures contained within it.  The intricate & slightly scratchy lace contrasted by the soft scoops of crochet.  I can hardly keep my hands off myself.

Swirly Twirly + A Giveaway

{ON tee & hat (option) | chicwish skirt, c/o | qupid sandals (similar) | gifted necklace (cute option) | fossil watch}

I think I've made my feelings for maxis abundantly clear.  So when Chicwish was kind enough to send over this beautiful, lovely, swirly, twirly skirt, I was probably more excited than any normal person should be.  It's pretty much exactly what I've been looking for in a maxi skirt - it's lightweight, it's floaty, and it's so versatile.  

Jealous?  Well don't be because you can win this awesomely adorable dress generously provided by Chicwish!  (It's a size medium but runs a little on the small side.)  The giveaway is open internationally, so everyone can enter!  Good luck!!!

Speckled Kaleidoscope

{delias dress | f21 jacket | kamik rainboots | fossil watch | stella & dot bracelet | claire's earrings}

Here's another case of the mysteriously shrinking dress.  This time in a colorful, speckled, kaleidoscope pattern.  I don't know what's happening here; either I'm still growing or there is something seriously funky happening in my closet.  Whatever it is, my hemlines seem to be creeping higher lately.  Which is fine as long as I remain standing; it's when I sit that things start to get a little iffy.

Hot Flash

{f21 top (crazy similar!) & shorts | kamik boots | fossil watch | asos socks (similar) | boyfriend's belt}

You know what I love more than a pretty, cream & gold polka dotted shirt?  Getting to wear it during summer!  After enduring July's month long hot flash of 90+ degree days with >75% humidity, August seems to have evened out a little bit with some much needed rain and cooler days & evenings.  Hence, the much-awaited wearing of the long sleeved shirt.  It's been a month in the making.
