OOTD: Holding on to Summer


Dress: J.Crew

Belt: Banana Republic

Shoes: Birkenstocks

The days are starting to get a little cooler – off and on sunshine and storms. Early September and back to school time always sees a odd arrangement of summer attire mixed with autumn wear. A mix of those who wish to hang on to summer for as long as they can, and those who can’t wait for the cooler sweater weather that’s upon the horizon. So for a little shopping trip with friends this past weekend, I decided to hold tight to the final warm days of summer before I excitingly dive into my scarves and leather jacket in the up coming weeks. I’ve had this dress for years and have always had the most awkward time arranging it. I used to put t-shirts or stripped long-sleeves under it and I ended up looking like a school marm. But with a black bandeau and a belt, this dress is perfect for warm weather wanderings. 

Ps. Like my lipstick? I’m so in love with my personal lipstick from that Sephora Loves Bite event


OOTD – Sunday Sundresses

I love when Birthdays brings family together! My Grandfathers 80th Birthday was today, a great time to dress up a little and take some pictures with my sister Meghan, who lives most of the year in Ireland.

I wore a brand new hot pink sundress from J.Crew matched with my ever trusty American Eagle jean jacket, a true wardrobe essential. Finished off with my black burlap Toms, I felt pretty in pink for a lovely garden party with the family. Too bad we don’t get together more often. My lovely sister wore a really pretty white eyelet lace dress from Banana Republic. And check out those fab Michael Kors wedges. A lovely pair I think.

I finally have some time for shopping this weekend and can’t wait to get some more summer sundresses and more bright cloths for my upcoming Boston trip!! I love summer!

What colours do you think are in this summer?
