Hello, August.  Whenever number eight gets flipped on the calendar a bunch of wonderful realizations pop into my mind.  First, what an amazing summer it's been so far...and there's more than a month left to go! I think about all the fun times I've checked off on my sunshine list and I dream a little more about what I can't wait to do and see coming up.  I also start looking forward to the season ahead around now.  Fall is by far my favorite season of all and that's amid some pretty stiff competition, haha.  There are so many incredible reasons as to why I love autumn so much but I can't get ahead of myself just yet.  More on the sights, smells, adventures and of course, clothes of fall coming up in September.   

Right now, I'm focused on the ease and laid-back style that is August.  To me this month is like the Sunday of summer.  The handwork is done and it's time to relish in the dreams of the future.  The clothes this month can and should reflect that feel.  I love the ease of this dress.  It can easily go from day to night, lunch date to lounge.  This maxi version is also the piece to get your hands on right now.  I love how easy they are to wear (and pack) and how versatile they can be at the same time.  Off the shoulder tops are still in major rotation in my closet.  This one is a current fave.  One last piece that is great for now and perfect for later is this sleeveless turtleneck top. Pair it with your denim skinnies and sneakers for late summer and then layer it under a roomy blouse and with a mini aline and these booties.  Aren't easy options wonderful?  Hope you're having a great Wednesday!
