stairway to nowhere






How crazy is it that summer is ending for most of us in mere weeks? This is the time of year when I always play oblivious to the calendar and purposely turn a blind eye to back-to-school talk – at least for now. Sure I am stoked for fall fashions, but would trade my sweaters and coats any day for a gauzy dress (like this one) and warm summer nights. I have already watched (in terror) as several leaves are slowly succumbing to gravity’s pull and falling towards the ground; I think I am quite prepared for springtime to come again.

Today I paid my campus a visit and the reality really hit home that books and exams would be my new daily mantra quite soon. Right now however I’d like to cling to the last bits of summertime I have left, and enjoy the lazy days of soaking up the warm sunshine.

  1. Gorgeous pattern on the dress.

    I am exactly the same, I am longing for the summer to continue rather than commence university, a prospect at which I am terrified!

  18. I agree with you! I keep reading blogs where people say they can't wait for fall, and I think they're crazy! Fall is fine but nothing beats wearing a dress and not having to remember a sweater!

    You look cute, by the way. I love my own hair colour but you make me think it would be nice to be blonde for a bit too, if just to wear blue and yellow like that!

    What do you study?

  36. Ooh, these photos are lovely! The stairs are so cool and I love the contrast of the images. Blue and yellow has always been one of my favorite color combinations, and I love the fresh spin you've put on it here - the white, blue, and green floral dress looks wonderful with the neon yellow sandals. Gorgeous!!
