As I mentioned last week, we went to a gorgeous wedding up in the wine country near the central coast last weekend. This is what we wore to the rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding. Unless you’re told otherwise, I always think rehearsal dinner attire should be nice but not too dressy. For me that meant a floral wrap dress and sandals, and Jeff went with khakis and a dress shirt. I loved the way my dress moved and the long sleeves were perfect for sundown al fresco dining.
We had about one day of weather below 85 degrees and I decided to prematurely break out some fall favs. I’ll admit now the felt hat and booties were a bit too aggressive for late summer and I won’t be making that mistake again! I’m not really sure why I’m trying to wish away my favorite season… Oh yes I am, we live in an old house by the beach that doesn’t have AC!
Anyway, while I was warm in this pre-fall getup I did get excited to wear these leopard booties again. Unfortunately they’re sold out, but Sam Edelman still has them in a variety of other colors – they’re the “Petty” and are really the perfect neutral bootie. Plus the leopard seem to always make their way back in stock once the temperatures drop. continue reading
I bought these leopard shorts last month at Urban Outfitters and they’ve carried me through the end of summer. One weekends I’m usually wearing a variation of this look… it’s easy for running errands and scooping out possible wedding venues – which is what my weekends are currently consumed by.

How crazy is it that it’s already September? And even crazier that there are only a few months left in the year! Hope you all had a good holiday weekend, I spent mine beginning the wedding venue hunt, which is much harder than I ever imagined!
Anyway, I’ve always loved mixing floral print and seersucker. It’s fresh and perfect for late summer (it’s still summer) and even early fall. I’ve been thinking about other ways to style this Shabby Apple sweater. I’ll edge it up with a leather skirt in the fall and pair it with a tweed skirt and tights in the winter. I love versatile pieces like this. continue reading
