people, did somebody press fast forward my summer 'cause it certainly feels like it.

star dress: Forever 21 / cardi: Belk / cobalt blue tights: c/o We Love Colors / leather cuff: c/o Salvage West
nail polish: Essie (meet me at sunset) / lipstick: c/o Radiant Cosmetics (moxie) / 
gyspy wedges: c/o Blowfish Shoes

it's hard to believe that the days of  lounging on the beach and finding sand in between your toes are behind us now. even here in the south, the temperatures have cooled off and there has been a light breeze haunting us as of late (though Isaac, i'm sure, is most likely to the blame for it). this past Sunday, it was even cool enough to pull out the good ole tights and wear a cardi over this summer dress (which i normally wear around the 4th of July because of the stars that sprinkle the fabric). 

and the summer months have been full, so that is probably the cause of this season's quick pace. but hey, i'm totally not complaining about it. i love when life is full and busy and purposeful, but i also think that in living a full life, it makes you appreciate the quiet, peaceful and still moments even more so
don't you agree, friend? 

much love.
{happy tuesday, friend.}

  1. your SO beautiful. Love your sense of style and those blue tights!

  2. I rode my bike this morning and I was so cold. I was like, "NO! Summer is not gone yet!"
    But just thinking about wearing cute tights like those makes the adjustment a lot easier.

  3. I know, it's getting so "cold" down here! I think fall otta hurry up and get here, now that summer's gone and all. :)

    love the dress, girl! super cutesy.

  4. Love it with the tights.

  5. It's not really cold here yet... Kinda want it to, and kinda don't... Haha, mixed feelings.
    Love the dress and te cardi!

  8. Seriously...where the heck did it go? Although, I do love fall so!

  9. Where did my beautiful summer go? I'm a senior in high school this year, so I guess it doesn't matter much. :)

  10. Oh my goodness. I'm so in love with this outfit and yes I agree! Where did summer go? I'm looking forward to fall and all the amazing things that I can now wear (except here in California it's dry and Earthquake season...)

  11. You look SO cute! Love the bright blue tights with your yellow cardi.

  12. yay! excited to begin seeing you rocking all sorts of tights!! :)

  13. I am SO excited for fall, bring on the tights!

  14. You look so pretty!! I love the color combo you are rocking!! I wish it was cooling off enough for tights + a cardigan!! I can't wait for Fall!! :)

  15. So pretty! I can't believe you were able to wear a cardigan & tights without sweating to death!! Hahaha. I'm glad the weather isn't like that here, yet!! It can change in the middle of September when I'm headed to Florida (as long as the weather is HOT down there!!) haha. :)

  16. your color combos are always a delight!
    i can't believe summer is moving on past either. although here in kansas it's still pretty hot.

  17. Sunday's morning weather made me excited for the weather to come!!

  18. I am LOVING this outfit!! It's so...bold! I am scared to wear something like this because I've mentioned before I'm very plain...BUT my husband says a person can pull off ANY outfit with CONFIDENCE. Confidence will be my newest best friend.
