I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend! Things have been a whirlwind around here (someone hacked into my site…rude, and although we’re back up and running, I have a lot of catching up to do). I will fill you in on our vacation, some life updates, and what’s been going on since then next week!
Can you believe that summer is already coming to a close? As much as I hate the end of the warm-weather season, I always look forward to this time of year because it’s the beginning of fall candles (I’ve already stocked up on my fav BB&B scents), pumpkin spice latte’s, and cozy layers (#basic.) Although I love adding sweaters, boots, and cardigans back into my wardrobe, cooler temps don’t mean that we need to put away all of our favorite summer pieces.
One fashion rule that I definitely do not believe in is “no white after Labor Day”. I love wearing shades of white all year round and this ivory-colored midi dress is no exception! It would’ve been ideal to pair it with a black moto jacket (on sale for under $50!) to finish off the look and make it more fall appropriate but it’s been 97 degrees in the DC area. We’ll just have to use our imaginations for now because a girl isn’t going to lose consciousness for the sake of an outfit, ‘kay?
Block heels are having a moment and I’ve heard rave reviews about these sandals for months. I really wanted them in powder blue (they come in a bunch of color options), however, when I tried them on in store, the higher arch was cutting off circulation to my toes (low blood pressure problems). I was so upset they didn’t work for me but I was thrilled when I found this pair! They have a slightly lower heel height, are less expensive, and I love them so much that I recently picked them up in the nude color as well. They are so comfortable and a great staple shoe.
