all in a golden afternoon

This lovely yellow dress has been hiding in my closet all summer, and strangely this is the first time I have worn it, which is a shame. But luckily today’s warm breeze called for something of this nature, and so it made its debut. I first admired this Tahari number back in the spring (or earlier?) at some expensive shop like Bloomies or Neiman Marcus. The detailing on this dress is nothing short of exquisite – just look at the straps and lovely bodice, not to mention the delicate way its sheer yellow fabric moves in the wind. After placing it back on the shelf – something I do quite too often, I hoped one day I would own it. As luck would have it, I found the same dress at a Tahari outlet mere months later for a price I could swing.

I enjoyed the great outdoors all afternoon today in shades of yellow and gold, as my summer is dwindling to an end and I have mere days left.... I am being forced to savor these moments quickly and will have to try to stuff last minute summer activities into this week before fall approaches. Boo!
