Summer to Fall Transition

Let's be honest - I've been wearing this burgundy dress all summer, I just haven't taken many pictures of it, because that would get boring on here. But, here's a combo I haven't shown on the blog yet that I think shows how you can start incorporating some more fall colors NOW without getting rid of your summer colors or fabrics yet, either. This might actually be my favorite way I've worn this dress so far. 
Blazer: Zara (similar color)
Dress: Ann Taylor Factory (similar, similar)
Shoes: Ann Taylor (similar)
Necklace: Forever 21 (similar)
Watch: Michael Kors

Summer Engagement Party & the obvious need for another bag

I think most women can relate - you have that moment standing in front of your closet saying "I have nothing to wear" except your closet is overflowing. I had that moment a few weeks ago when I was getting ready to go to my friend's engagement party. Except it was with purses/bags and not clothes this time. I could NOT find an appropriate bag to wear with this dress! I'm now on the search for a brown/tan/gold smaller bag. I'm thinking the Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC because it can be used as a clutch as well as crossbody and shoulder bag. 

P.S., hopefully this colorful dress is somewhat of a seasonal improvement over my obvious cop-out in the last "summer" wedding post with a black dress!

P.P.S - the last time I wore this dress was for my law school graduation 2 years ago! Where NO pictures were taken of it!

Bag: Longchamp

Summer Wedding

I wore my new-ish black lace dress from Nordstrom to my cousin's wedding last weekend. The wedding took place at a beautiful castle in New Hampshire. The weather was perfect (maybe even too warm for some, but not for me - I'm used to Miami weather at this point). I wore all gold jewelry, including some new finds from my grandma's collection. I used Lorac Tantalizer over my St. Tropez tan for some extra sparkle on my skin for the special occasion. Summer weddings are definitely the appropriate time to experiment with colors, but I didn't have time to go dress shopping. Plus, I think black can be worn any time of the year. And, floral/lace texture on the dress added some summer to the dress. What have you worn to summer weddings this year?
