Although I am sad summer is over, that sadness is tempered by the fact that all the lovely September issue fashion magazines are out! I pretty much only buy mags in September and get all my fashion news on,one for the rest of the year. Well, not entirely true, I do get the spring vogue collections also. There is just something I love about flipping through the huge Vogue that essentially catalogs all the upcoming trends and ad launches and such. I like the to have the magazine in hand and find myself flipping forward and back to folded pages that I liked.
With the sun still warm and magazines or on table and a pellagrino, I am a happy girl. I might be happier with wine instead of sparkling water…but defiantly happy!
I pick my must have pieces and put them on my lust list. It's ever changing and item fall off when I tire of them before they come into my wardrobe (this is the fate of many items on my list since I purchase designer wears pretty sparingly) but it is a list none the less and lists make me happy too.
Ok, a bit of comentary on the outfit. Ankle skinnys rolled to crop are perfect for end of summer, warm enough but not hot paired with a simple tank under a summer sweater because layering is key for days with big temperature swing. Let's talk print now. How fun is the retro rose print of this sweater? It is still keeping with the floral tend but is fresh with the rockabilly retro vibe. Yes I love it, I do. Besides I picked it up on a very fun girls shopping trip this spring so it reminds me of that too.

I love the classic line of a fitted knee length skirt. Since I don't wear many business skirt suits and such, (thank goodness!) and therefore I have no need of drab and conservative business attire, I can wear pencil skirts in bright red! Who wouldn't love a fun red curve hugging skirt that hints at pin up beauty? Granted, the outfit is not at all retro but because of the cut and fit of the skirt it has just that little hint…
The shoes are high for sure but since I'm petty used to being the amazon in the room, I don't mind being taller than many if not most.
I love the tank with the exposed zipper and since I never wear racer back bras, I went with a fun red one to complement the skirt. Seriously, racer back bras are not made for my chest, if I ever found one that fit right I would totally wear it. I have never found one that fit right, and not for lack of trying either. I like the red straps with the navy, it adds a bit of fun.

Dog days of summer…hot and not enough rain. I spend too much time inside when it is hot out. I am not a sun worshiper since I live the pale life so I actually like summer clothes that have a bit more coverage at the shoulders and arms. This light knit is breezy and cool but still offers covered arms, I like.
The loose fit and drop waist are casual and cute and still comfy.
Since oranges and peaches and apricots are all such summery colors, the shade helps keep it fresh also.
These have become my go to sunnies this season. I love them and they go with petty much everything.
Classic summer wedges are perfect for adding a bit of style and still being totally comfortable to run errands in and walk in all day. Add a great bag and I'm a happy summer girl.

Enjoy the summer and wear something you love!
Today's forcast is for a high of 99. We will see if I can manage to make my Tuesday run, that is pretty hot! Often on hot days I find I'm more concerned about staying cool than staying fashionable. Sometimes you come across a lovely piece that allows for both. This loose silk high low maxi does that . It is light and breeze and still has style.
The looseness helps with staying cool too. Although I think it would be a cute dress for a summer evening party or cocktails also. The print makes it a versitile piece.
As for makeup in the heat, I just add a little sparkle and mascara and call it good.

XOXO and stay cool.
I love this dress. It is a bit tight though,but it love the none the less. I love that it is completely summer. It can't be worn any other time with a added layers for warmth. That would just not look right at all. It is purely a summer dress. Only to be worn for one short season here in Montana. Far too often these days I find myself wearing workout clothes most of the day. So when I dress up in something like this it is just that much more special.
The stiped jacket over the top for the cool of the evening is a nice add but I like the dress alone best.
It doesn't need anything else. Just one simple strapless lovely symmetric mirror image floral print dress and great heels and friends to party with.

Total shoe lust! These are so pretty! I love them! Louboutin lobules foot sure. Between the delicate design of the gold within the black patent and the mesh I can't seen anything I don't love!
You can pre order your pair today at Neiman Marcus for $1495.
I know I have mentioned before that I love heels with shorts. I love the mix of casual and sexy. Loose, comfy cut off jean shorts are the definition of casual. Especially when perfectly worn out with just the right amount of fraying and fading. So naturally I would like the juxtaposition of the sexy strappy nude shoes with the shorts. Adding a friendly linen tunic with its loose cut and wrinkled texture is just yummy. What's not to love?
Although, sometimes you just gotta be silly. Or in my life that sometimes would be on a pretty regular basic. You know, just to keep sane by checking reality I guess. Silly is as silly does?
I'm thinking Bella may not know what to make of me.
My kids are used to it. She will be too eventually.
Love the look of doggy disgust!
And back to serious.
Kiss kiss. I need to brush her teeth. Phew!
Too much silly in the sun is so tiring.
Cut offs are Paige denim seen here. Linen tunic is from Zara as are the shoes which have been on here lots because they are such a great simple strappy nude shoe and they go with everything. Sunnies are Mugler.
