Stairway to the beach

Are we really in the middle of August right now? It feels like we just started the month! I'm really looking forward to all of our autumn plans, but am still clinging onto these last few summer weeks! The end of summer is such a lovely yet bittersweet time in our town. I love how our little beach town comes alive with all of the tourists and summer activities!

Sometimes I feel like my outfits just plan themselves. I received this super cute sailboat bow from the lovely Johanna at Up a Tree Cup a Tea! I knew I had to head down to the water wearing this bow... and of course, there were so many sailboats out! It was perfect! You can purchase this bow... or another set of bows with vintage fabric I picked! I'll be styling those soon. She makes the sweetest items... and she's the sweetest girl.

This dress is from dee&ray! They are a new contemporary women's line created by Diana Ra. It's a great lightweight dress for hot summer days! I loved the cinched waist and buttons up the front.

Tomorrow I'll be guest posting over at Orchid Grey! I have a busy weekend ahead... a wedding on Saturday and a Tiger's game on Sunday. Now I'm super distracted by 'Coming to America' so I'm going to go watch the rest of it with Brett! Have a great weekend, everyone!
