A Bit of Chevron

Chevron is a print that I really enjoy. It's a little bit of a twist from the standard stripe, which makes it instantly fun. Surprising I don't have too many chevron items, so when I saw this dress, I had to get it.

{Dress: Dress Up Shop (giveaway win from Shanna), Shoes: Prabal Gurung for Target (old), Necklace: c/o Wild Butterfly Boutique, Belt: H&M, Bracelets: David Yurman, Alex and Ani}

Can we talk about how it's August already? I feel like I was just celebrating the fact that summer was starting and now I have to think about it ending? This always happens with summer time. It goes by so fast and then it's forever until it comes back! Good thing I have a lot planned for this month so that I can savor the rest of summer as best I can.

Are you doing anything to take advantage of the end of summer?

The weather has been amazing lately so we are spending lots of time outside. And that's it - our plan for August is just to spend as much time outside as possible. We are hoping to go to a spray park in the coming weeks.

That skirt really fit you! Hope you get a chance to wear it more before the weather cools.
