Farewell to Summer '14

Friday, August 22, 2014





















































And just like that, the summer is history. It is bittersweet for me to see this summer pass. As an incoming junior, this has been one of my last official summer breaks before entering the "real world". The kid in me isn't prepared for that. What I do love about the end of summer is the beginning of a clean slate. As students, we get the opportunity to start fresh every fall. We can fix any past mistakes and even begin a new journey if we wish. I'll miss that kind of freedom the most.





Dress: Urban Outfitters (old)
Heels: Zara (similar here)

As my last post before the new semester, I wanted to approach it with an outfit that epitomizes summer. I think this Urban Outfitters maxi dress does the job. With its ultra-bohemian and feminine look, this maxi dress makes this summer feel eternal. I especially love how the front slits allow for breezy movement, and the cutouts give it an open, youthful vibe. I have to admit I may have had too much fun twirling around in this piece. The best part? I bought it for a whopping $10 last year. If that's not a steal, I don't know that is.

So, here's to a bittersweet ending leading to a new beginning. Until next time, summer, you will be missed.

  2. That Urban Outfitters dress looks amazing! It actually looks like you're wearing a lot of different pieces together and layering them when in fact it's just one piece! <3 You look great!
