Necklace: Gentry - get it HERE
Labor day weekend is always the unofficial end of summer for me. I spent my time hanging by the lake with my family, reading good books and relaxing in the sun. I was torn between enjoying my long weekend and already missing summer, but overall the weekend was a success. I definitely feel more relaxed and ready for fall (pumpkin spice lattes, boots, and pretty fall colors outside...yes, please) and have accepted that summer is coming to a close.
Accepting summer being over was way easier wearing this gauzy dress with lace detailing and my new chunky bubble bib from Gentry. Saying I'm obsessed with this necklace is an understatement. I want to wear it with everything! It's so pretty and adds the perfect pop of color to just about any outfit.
I purchased this dress for graduation but ended up wearing another one. I just pulled this beauty out of my closet, tags and all, and mentally kicked myself for forgetting it all summer. I probably would have never taken it off if I would have worn it sooner. It's the perfect LWD for summer and I'm already figuring out if there is any way I can make it work this fall. Wouldn't you say YES to white after labor day for this dress??
As for my hair, it was pretty and bouncy all day, but by sunset and the time of taking these pictures, it was a hot mess. Rather than put it up into a top knot like I would usually do, I took a note out of Lana Del Rey's book, and threw it all over one shoulder. While my hair looks nothing like Lana's (smooth, beautiful perfection), I liked the messy, easy look, that was so reminiscent of summer. I will definitely be bringing this look back in the months to come!
