This past Saturday was really warm and humid, it felt like summer was taking it’s last breath before fall officially took over. It was nice to get out and enjoy the day and say my final goodbyes. Oh summer, I will miss you so! So today, on the official first day of fall, I thought I would post one last summer look.

I bought this dress from Ruche this past spring and it is such a shame that I haven’t worn it until now. It was too long on me and had to be altered, I kept putting off having it done until just a few weeks ago. I absolutely love this dress! The floral pattern feels very vintage to me and I’m in love with the cutout details on the side and in the back. Since you can see your bra (and I’m not willing to go braless), I wore a cute lace bralette and didn’t mind that you could see it. I gave a bit of a nod to fall by adding these super cute vintage looking boots and my denim vest (which I barely wore because it was so hot). And of course I finished off the look with lovely earrings from Moxie Boutique ;). I am determined to find ways to style this dress for fall, as I refuse to have this be the only time I wear this gorgeous dress until next year.

I hope all of you enjoyed your last weekend of summer! And for those of you going into summer,……. well lucky you ;).
