I can’t believe I’m admitting this, but I’m starting to switch my wardrobe from summer to fall.  The first things to go into hibernation: bright pastels and overtly spring-ish floral prints.

While I was saying farewell to a few of my seasonal faves, I found this coral dress that I hadn’t worn since last June.  I couldn’t bear the thought of waiting another year to wear it again, so I mixed it in with a few of my fall staples for one last floral hurrah.

Wanna give your summer frock a little bit more longevity?  There’s nothing a military jacket, tortoise/leopard jewelry, and one amazing cognac tote bag can’t fix!

As an Arizona girl born and raised, hot summer weather never used to phase me.  But as a recent New York transplant:  I.  Am.  Dying.  I’m such a light weight when it comes to humidity, so my solution for the past few days has been to throw on the most breathable layers possible — oh and yes, chop off my hair.  So maybe one strategy is a little more extreme than the other, but at this point, I’ll do anything short of moving to Antarctica to stay cool.

Somehow, it’s Monday again.  Thankfully, I’m feeling a little more cheery than usual.  Maybe it’s because of the upcoming four-day weekend or maybe it’s because it’s the start of my favorite month of the year (hellooo birthday month!).  Either way, I’m jumpstarting this week with a positive outlook and a cheery, floral print dress to match.  Happy Monday friends!
