Well to say it has been a long week could be the understatement of a lifetime. So I could not be HAPPIER about the three day weekend we have ahead of us 🙂

I am headed down to Lake Powell tomorrow morning to catch up on some last summer rays, but before I head, I wanted to leave you with a quick post. Do you have any fun plans this Labor Day weekend?

Happy Friday!


Also p.s. – Dad if you are reading this, I hope you have the most fabulous 61st Birthday today!!
You still don’t look a day over 60 😉

To give this very feminine and flowy dress a rocker vibe, I decided to pair it with some of my favorite black and white accessories, including this hat, a pair of gladiator heels, and a leather bomber jacket.

With cooler weather right around the corner, these accessories totally took my summery look and transitioned it into a statement fall ensemble.

How are you going to use your summer pieces this fall?
