Summer is ending and I can hardly face it. I'm a warm-weather-girl through and through (although my pale skin ushers in long layers for fall like nobody's business...it's called pale skin problems and I've learned to just embrace it during the summer.)
It's been rough getting back into the swing of things post beach vacation, but it always is. I've been downloading photos and missing that place like UGH. My heart hurts so much when I leave merely for the fact that it makes the kids so darn happy. It's funny how perspectives change so much when you have kids. I literally just want them to be happy (and cute...can I tell you how many things I buy them more than myself these days?).
I had been craving a pom-pom bag for days, so when I went on vacay and I spotted this miniature one I thought I would "buy it for little L" and she would go crazy for it. Well, turns out she just wanted the darn things off and I've since inherited it. Blush. I think I'll adjust.
Off-the-shoulder-dresses like this one from BCBGeneration are my absolute favs right now, and I love how this one has a bit of boho flair to it with the sleeves. I was searching for the perfect black version since my pale skin just doesn't do peach and white and...well, ya get the point. (I shudder at the thought of wearing those colors.) And all summer I've been adding these Vince Camuto wedges to pretty much every other dress. It's fine - don't worry. I promise you have more shoes in my closet. It's just hard to let go of a favorite...wink.
Hope everyone enjoys the craziness of back to school (traffic, anyone? forfeited trips to Starbucks? sigh...) - pretty sure I'm a nervous wreck as you read this. Stay tuned for the next few weeks on little C's and little L's fav things (mom-tested!) for back to school. You'll love them.
