The Late August Summer Dress

Head to Toe: Dress, CT Couture // Sandals, Cambiani // Earrings, Anna Pearl's Curiousities // Bag, thrifted (DIY pom poms)

The end of August is always such a strange time. Kids and teachers are heading back to school (especially strange this year, I might add), but the temperatures are still sky-high. For me, I love to enjoy every last drop of summer through Labor Day Weekend. That includes getting more wears out of my favorite summer dresses, like this tribal cold-shoulder number my mom made. After that, I will coat my life in pumpkin spice, put up my fall decorations, and embrace all-things autumn—not that I'm opposed to a September beach day if the weather allows.

It's funny to see the different camps of thought play out. Some of the bloggers I follow are already posting sweaters with Halloween motifs, while Refinery 29 is publishing snarky articles about why people enjoy pumpkin spice lattes. (Because they're delicious, that's why.) My thought is, do what makes you happy! This year more than ever, can we just let people enjoy their pumpkins in August, and their beach days in October? I mean it's 2020, is the calendar even relevant? What do you think—team summer, team fall, or team whatever the mood strikes? 


  1. I love the dress! It looks gorgeous and thanks for sharing!

  2. Love the print of that dress, it's so fun!!
    And yep, I LOOOOOVE me some Fall but I'll still take in all the Summer I can. (I still haven't been to a beach this year and didn't go last year either...AHH! It's shameful)

  3. So pretty <3

  4. Wow, what a beautiful summer dress! I love all of the gorgeous colours together. Though normally, I am clinging onto summer for dear life...I think I am team fall this year. I'm already looking forward to a fresh new season!
    the creation of beauty is art.
