Well, summer officially comes to an end this week as the semester begins tomorrow.  I’m looking forward to the Fall, but sure will miss the summer!  I successfully started a veggie garden, clocked over 400 miles with a new running buddy, met up with old friends, convinced my advisor my dissertation topic is a worthy one, and of course GOT MARRIED!!

These are pictures taken a few weeks back, while on one of the many mini summer vacations we took to visit friends and family.  This is the dress I bought to wear the night before my wedding, but knew it would get a good amount of wear.  I added the woven leather belt and red flats to dress in down enough for brunch and a walk around town.

Check back later this week to see what ensemble I pull together for the first day of the semester!

    Ahh, I love how your rich jewel tones and mahogany are welcoming in fall, but your fabrics and cuts are clearly still in the summer zone. Can’t wait to see your back-to-school ensemble!

    Great outfit! I love the richness of the colours and the very flattering cut of the gress.

  3. Lisa says:

    Sounds like you had an amazing summer. I love the color of the dress and the pop of color from the shoes. Good luck on your first day!

    Love this dress!! It is nice that is special to you and you will get tons of wear out of it!

  5. Sara says:

    This dress is gorgeous on you – the neckline is incredibly flattering, and the cinched-in waist looks so chic. I love the bright shoes with it, too – such a fun detail! This is one of my favorite looks of yours!

    I love your outfit, and I’m in *awe* of your productive summer! 400 miles! I’m not worthy.
