Since today is the official first day of fall I thought I’d celebrate by wearing a new LWD. Kinda backwards, right? Just trying to keep it interesting and I really did just get this dress and couldn’t wait to wear it. It’s super comfortable and runs true-to-size (I’m wearing a small and it’s roomy). Not to mention, it’s such a steal at under $30!
I always think of August as a transitional month as it’s the last full month of summer. But now instead of back-to-school shopping, I’m pulling out early fall pieces for the next month or so. This denim jacket is something that never really leaves my closet, no matter what season. Even though it’s still warm here I usually bring it with me because I’m always cold.
Do you have a summer go-to?! Thanks for reading!
Happy Monday! I’m sharing the last batch of photos from our road trip up the coast. After Santa Barbara we decided to stop and doing a little wine tasting at Melville Winery in Lompoc. It was a cloudy and kind of chilly day but that didn’t stop me from wearing this dress. Sizing note, it runs a little large. I’m wearing a small and it’s a bit too big.
I originally planned to wear it to The Madonna Inn, but decided to keep it casual for wine tasting with my trusty denim jacket and booties, which were ideal for walking around in the vines. Luckily the rain held out until the moment we were leaving the vineyard! It was the perfect day.
Thanks for reading – enjoy your day!
Every time I wear something floral this time of year I think of The Devil Wears Prada… “Florals for spring? Groundbreaking.”
I can’t help it! Even though they may seem so basic, I find myself reaching for them more than any other print in my closet. Except maybe stripes…
This dress is just so pretty and it gives you the Angelina leg. I wore it around Santa Barbara last weekend and now I want to wear it every day until September. Really though, I’ll probably wear it to a shower and even a wedding before summer’s over. It’s the perfect seasonal day-time “guest attire” and deserves to be seen as much as possible!
Bonus… it pairs perfectly with my current favorite “party shoes.”
Happy Tuesday – thanks for reading!
