Savoring Summer

Little White Dress & Striped Scarf

While we’re on the subject of summer, I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with the little time we have left together.  Lately, I’ve had fall fashion on my mind (and in my outfits) so much that I almost forgot to savor the rest of this season.  It’s time to slow my roll, switch out my dark nail polish and bring back the brights.  With two weekends left, I foresee a few rooftop bars, a picnic in the park and maybe a last minute getaway.  Enjoy it while it lasts my friends!

One Last Romp

Hot Pink Romper

I started easing into darker colors last week and went full force fall on Monday.  I can’t help it — fall inspiration is everywhere and I’m secretly excited at the idea of piling on the layers of rich, moody shades.  But then I realize we have a week and a half of summer left and there’s still time for one last romp.

Open Back Hot Pink Romper

Enter this hot pink romper.  It’s definitely a complete 180° from my last few looks, but I’m completely okay with this bi-polar dressing.  If I’m going to enjoy the final fleeting days of the season, I might as well do it right.  Tell me, are you ready for fall or are you holding on to summer for dear life?

Currently Craving: Matching Sets

Zig Zag Print Matching Set

Matching Set // Geode Necklace // Quilted Bag // Cut-Out Booties

I’m not usually a matchy-matchy kind of girl.  My boyfriend can attest to that, considering that I constantly force him to change shirts if we’re ever wearing the same shade of anything (sorry babe!).  Even my fingernails are never painted the same color as my toenails.  But lately, I’ve been entertaining the idea of the matching set.

I never thought I had the je ne sais quoi to pull off the look, but the more I see it rolling down runways and onto the racks, the more I want to give it a shot.  Because why not?  Whether you’re dipping your toes into a fun print or a classic texture, there is plenty of experimentation to be had!  And when you’ve given it a whirl, each piece is as perfect on its own.  Check out how I would style a matching set and let me know what you think of the trend!
