The Last Days of Summer



dress - Asos, wedges (otherwise known as my "Barbie shoes")- Spring, necklace + rings - H & M, gold cuff - Banana Republic

I hate to say it (like reeeeally hate to say it) but the end of summer is near and I am trying to squeeze every last, itty-bitty drop out of the season by getting as much wear as I possibly can out of summer dresses I won't be able to slip into in a month when the temperature slips and dips and all I'll want to wear are cardigans, jeans, boots and scarves. I love the fall but love the summer even more and I don't want it to end! Especially since I live in a climate where winter can last 8 months a year! Yes, you heard that right. O, Canada.....

I wore this dress to my cousin's birthday celebration at my aunt's house. Somehow the party ended up with me and my relatives searching and watching funny Youtube videos on a big-screen TV. Most of them featured animals, like this one. Who says we don't know how to have a good time?! ; )

I hope you all had a great weekend and I wish you a wonderful week!

I love this dress marie! The colours and pattern are so awesome and that necklace is gorgeous. I know I hate that the summer is almost over, but I am planning on making the most out of the last few weeks :)

After 6 years of New England muggy/hot/humid summers I am bizarrely excited for the fall and even the winter in Edmonton...I just want summer to be over! Although I have to admit that your super pretty maxi dress and colorful shoes make even me a bit sad that summer will soon pass.

I'm from Winnipeg, so I'll always be a cold weather girl at heart... but it's dresses like this, especially paired with turquoise necklaces, that make me wish summer would never end. You look absolutely stunning, Marie :)

Marie, that dress is fabulous!

I totally agree about trying to wear summer dresses as much as possible before autumn comes! I adore autumn dresses too, but that always seems to last for such a short while!
