Saying Goodbye to Summer

Zara striped tunic, similar HERE // Chanel tote, similar HERE

Brixton “joanna” hat // Stuart Weitzman heels, similar but less expensive HERE

Good morning, loves! I took yesterday off from blogging (for Labor Day!) and took a day trip to the mountains with my husband and brother. It was so fun to get away from the heat for a little bit – we ate lunch at a picturesque cafe downtown and then went on a hike to soak up some fresh mountains air. The best part was that our dog Winnie got to come along too šŸ™‚ Although the hike was pretty strenuous and we had to carry her for a lot of it – she is a tiny thing!

Anyway, I hope everyone had a good long weekend! I wore this striped tunic from Zara on our trip to Italy a few weeks ago. These pictures were taken at our hotel in Lake Como – have you EVER seen such pretty landscaping in your life?! I haven’t!

Also, I’m s-l-o-w-l-y transitioning to fall (fall outfit, fall decor, etc.) so this will be one of the last summer outfits on my blog for the year. It’s a little bittersweet!

P.S. I have some fun blog posts planned for this week so stay tuned!

  9. Beautiful! How does the dress run? Zara doesn't match up the S, M, L, etc to number sizes and I'm between 8 and 10. And there are no reviews to go by. Please advise. Thanks!

  10. I'm so bummed that summer is coming to a close, but your fall looks are the BEST, so I'm looking forward to those!

  11. Love your outfit, and that hotel looks GORGEOUS! Can't wait for the fall content šŸ™‚

  12. Honestly I have mixed feelings about fall. I don't want to let go the sunny weather but I can't wait to see some fall foliage, drinking hot coffee and tea, get cozy and watch movies on rainy days etc.

    I'm really curious what you are up to next. I would like to read about your plans for fall. Travel Plans? What is your fall bucket list? Could you write a blog post on how you edit your pictures? I'm sure it is something that many of us would like to know.

  13. I'm so not ready to say goodbye to summer yet.

  14. This dress is gorgeous but i'm not ready to say goodbye to summer!!
