summer's sunsets

The end of summer is one of my favorite and least favorite times of years -- the quick crispness in the air, promise of new and exciting fall fashions, that heavy feeling of change. 

But mostly I love those bright pink sunsets that fall over Boston's skyline, turning the entire city crazy beautiful colors for a minute. I think that is what attracted me so much to this dress. A color pallet so summery yet bittersweet, I had to make a second look from it.

snakeskin + things

The last few weeks have been crazy busy, and as a result, my outfits have been much less bold (as evidence in my last few posts). 

I've been getting into wearing more neutrals -- creams, blacks, browns -- and mixing more subtle patterns together. Something about keeping it simple (you can't get more classic than Coach C's and an oversized watch) makes me have that nostalgic back-to-school-brandy-new feeling all over again.

shift season

One style I know I will still be wearing when I'm 90? The shift dress -- my favorite shape, ideal length, a bajillion possibilities...

I like that many options in a dress.

feeling 90s

This dress totally reminds me of the 90s cool kids -- but without the jellies and butterfly clips. Updating it to the 21st century with super straight hair and simple black and white -- I swear I'll cry when summer is gone and I have to put these sandals in storage.

I wanted this dress the very second I saw it -- it almost became an impulse purchase. I love when things you are crazy for go on sale, don't you?
