today felt like my official last day of summer. there was a street fair in my neighborhood and for some reason each year feels like a personal farewell to the warm weather. we sat in an open-air cafe and drank beers while we listened to music and watched a pretty strange puppet show. now i'm taking the opportunity to stay in and bake some banana bread and cook an italian feast for dinner. fall is upon us and i am ready for the cooler weather coming this week.
i wanted to be comfortable today, but i also wanted to wear something that i knew would stay hanging in the closet until the warm days of spring next year. i thought this cotton and lace shift dress would be the perfect choice. i love this mauve shade and paired with a gray bandeau it was great for walking through the crowed street fair. in this muggy weather, vintage scarves have been my savior. they keep my hair dry and out of my face all day and make it easy to run out of the house on a lazy sunday. sunglasses and a tote completed the outfit for a day of grabbing freebies and sampling delicious foods.
