Are we really in the countdown to Labor Day weekend? REALLY?!
It still very much feels like summer around here, between the super humid weather, lighter traffic and tanned skin.
But…it’s those little changes that have been creeping up on us lately. Oh, you know… the leaves starting to change color, the days getting a bit shorter, and way too many”back to school” sales.
Today, I was a mix of emotions. It was the soft launch of Pumpkin Spice at Starbucks. For the next while, as I “transition” my morning pick me up into fall, my one pump of classic syrup in my iced coffee will be replaced by pumpkin spice. I was super upset and overjoyed this morning to have that first sip. Pumpkin spice is my favorite, but it’s a bit bittersweet when they release it.
Why not enjoy the first tastes of fall, while holding onto the last of summer? I’m still rocking my summer bright, after all.
I got this mint dress last summer and I’ve loved it ever since. I don’t often wear high neck dresses, but this one seems to really work, probably because of the full skirt.
Since I basically freeze to death in the office every day, I paired it with this striped jacket that I got back in the spring. I think it pairs better with the dress than the XL hoodie I keep on the back of my chair for those days I don’t plan ahead in the morning!
