Farewell Summer


Here in North Carolina it has started to feel like fall for sure.  I slept with my window open last night and it felt amazing.  Not sure about you but I am ready to conquer sweater weather, cozy socks, hot chocolate, and fall decor.  Although I'm ready for fall I do want to take advantage of those last summer days. And what better way to end it than with my very first collaboration!!  I am beyond thankful for this opportunity and hope to continue collaborating with many more amazing brands.

To say farewell to summer I collaborated with Shabby Apple, to bring you this beautiful KAI dress from their September Skies collection.  If you did not know already I love stripes (and white) specially in the summer but you will see me wearing stripes through the year.  This dress fits my style perfectly and what I like about it is how it can be dressed up or down very easily.  I got it in a size 4 and although it fits loose around my waist, after dinner that extra room was very much appreciated.  Another thing I really like is the dress length, it is long enough to cover me but not too long where often dresses make my frame look even shorter.

I would pair this dress with nude heels but I do not own any.  I did feel a little 4th of July with the red heels but the nude clutch even the look out for me.  I don't often wear my natural hair but I am loving how my curls look here.  I hope you enjoy this look and the photography as I have been striving to bring more quality photos to you all.  Thanks for reading! muahh!

  1. You look very pretty in this classic striped dress. I applaud you and your husband on the great photos. I tend not to wear my hair curly too but have been embracing it more recently. What part of North Carolina do you live in? I also live in NC.
