Summer Still On My Mind

While most people are looking forward to fall fashions, I am still stuck on summer. It is my favorite season of the year--rich with warm days and light dresses—and it is difficult to detach myself from it mentally. Having just returned from the Dominican Republic--a place of perpetual summer--certainly doesn’t help. So in defiance of the change of the season, I’m remaining solely focused on summer attire. I even ordered these two darling dresses from Asos (take that Fall!). 

Asos red and camel color-block dress with ruffle front

how absolutely darling is the back of this Asos summer dress?!
I ordered it in this color

I will, however, be looking to attire for cooler weather where the young man is concerned. It seems as though the temperature seems to drop instantly after the first week of school. He is way into v-neck tees this year, so I imagine we’ll be looking for graphic styles to pair with jeans and hooded sweatshirts. Nordstrom.com has some pretty cool lightweight sweatshirts made of recycled cotton that are worth checking out in person.


We still have a significant amount of shopping to do thanks to an inane amount of annual check-ups, all required prior to the start of school; and 6-days per week of football. The last minute back-to-school hustle is officially under way.

Have all you other mamas finished your back-to-school shopping or do you still have a few items left to get?
