Now that we’re in the second week of August I’m starting to experience the same sadness I did as a kid when the summer was wrapping up and it was time to go back to school. Only instead of school, I’m getting ready to go back to work after almost 7 months off!
This summer is flying by! I think time drastically speeds up when you have a baby – I find myself looking at pictures of things that happened months ago and feel like they were just yesterday. And now that we’re in August summer days are really numbered. Although in Southern California it will still be warm til Thanksgiving.
A few weeks ago my friend Nikki asked if I wanted to join her and some friends at this gorgeous house for the day. I shouldn’t even say house, it’s a 7 bedroom, 10 bath estate on 2 acres a few doors down from the “Western White House” overlooking the ocean. It’s currently on the market, but the owner was nice enough to let our group crash for the day and pretend we live there.
In my 20’s rompers were my summer go-to, but I haven’t worn them as much lately. I actually just cleaned out my closet and got rid of a bunch of old ones that were either too short, tight or worn. That’s how much I loved them!
Sometimes it can be hard to find dresses that work for different occasions. They’re either too short, too trendy or too low cut – in my experience at least. When I found this one I was excited to share it because it’s extremely versatile and works for so many different things from day-to-day events to the office. Plus the subtle bell sleeve is right on trend but they won’t seem dated in a year or so.
