last days of summer.

seems like just yesterday i was planning all kinds of fun things to do this summer...hikes, picnics at the beach, swimming.
well, the minis are back in school and we didn't do half as
many activities as i'd hoped. here's a summer outfit plus a few photos of how we spent our last days of summer.

are you still enjoying your summer?
or are you back in full swing at school/work?

barbeques with neighbors and friends.
movies on the big screen.
QT with the mini-she & mini-he at the beach.

  2. No doubt!!!! Where the hell did the summer go??? Nonetheless, with the temps FINALLY dipping below 90, I am def ready to welcome fall with open (and covered!) arms!

    Love this dress and how you kept it casual with the Converses!

  3. Still enjoying my summer as much as I can!
    Schools in Greece start on Sept 11th. However I finished school a long time ago! :P Still not working though, only if you consider blogging a job. ;)
    You look great!!! We also like to watch movies on the big screen at my bf's house.

  6. I know! Summer has flown by and we didn't do nearly everything we wanted to either. We still have an amusement park trip and a hiking trip planned but that's it. Kayla starts school Friday and I am so sad, she is going to be a senior!

    Don't you just love your yellow belt? I have one almost identical and it is a great accessory for adding something extra to an outfit. Heather

  7. We have barely had a summer over here in not-so-sunny England. rain, rain, and more rain!!!! but have def made the few days of sunshine worthwhile!

    I love your outdoor cinema, what a lovely idea! and your yellow belt finishes off your outfit perfectly, I think! x

  10. Isn't that always the truth?!! Summer goes by way too fast! Maybe we should just under-plan next time...that way whatever happens, there's no disappointment!

  11. WOW! The big screen in the back yard is awesome! How did you do that?? That must've been so fun for the minis! We're lucky that in Hawaii we get to enjoy the summer weather pretty much all year, but there is something about getting out more during the summer that makes you excited! I'm still enjoying the summer, trying to get to the beach as much as possible. I didn't get to do as much as I wished this summer too!

    1. Borrowed a friend's setup...blow up screen + projector.

      True, always summer here, but I don't worry too much about sticking to routines if there's no school!

  14. Summer does always seem to end too soon. I returned to work today...and I'm on school delivery duty for the grandson this semester. That gets me moving much earlier than I normally would.

  15. Being a graduated adult with no children, summer isn't much different from the rest of the year for me. More concerts and vineyards, yes, but no real shift in how I spend my days. That may be why I'm ready for fall; my summers are all hot weather without the payoff of summer break.

  16. I'm enjoying my last week of summer. Can't believe it went by so fast!

  18. I love the converses under the dress. Very chic.
    We did so much this summer that I am kind of worn out but not also ready to get up every morning and going to school either.
    My son won't start until after labor day. I don't think I am ready for him to start yet though. He is growing up so quickly.

  30. Great outfit for the closing days of summer. I can hardly believe it's almost over already either. Your blow up movie screen is awesome! I'm definitely going to look into buying one for next summer. Hope you're having a good week :)

  33. Love your photos. That dress and darling and I love the pop of neon.

    I never get even a 1/3 of what I have planned accomplished. There just are not enough hours in the day. I still have a few things for this summer I hope to get accomplished but I have been so busy I barely have time for anything but work and errands.

    I love the movie night on the big screen. It looks so fun.

  41. You always look so cute in your Converse. I always try to emulate your looks and I end up looking like a fool. How do you do it? Goal for next week: wear my Converse and rock them like you do!
