Somehow July has come and gone and it's already August 1st today! August always was a big month for me when I was still a student, it often involved back to school shopping, moving to a new dorm, starting a new semester, seeing old friends again, and all together big changes.
One of the biggest adjustments post-college is that there's no big "new start" every year like when you're in college and even grade school. All the same, I still like to savor every moment of summer, and that includes dressing the part.
I scooped up this cute little gingham mini skirt from J.Crew on sale in July and I'm so happy I decided to bite the bullet and buy it. It's the perfect piece to wear to dinner, going out, or hanging out on a hot summer afternoon. I wore this outfit on Friday night when we had our friends Laura and Kevin from my work over for dinner, I liked the combo of the white cropped top with the high-waisted gingham skirt so much I wanted to share it here on the blog.
How were your weekends? Are you enjoying soaking up the last "real" month of summer?
