Who's not ready for the summer to be over just yet? I'm right with you on that! I've been spending as much time outside as possible, soaking up rays on the beach and driving with my convertible top down constantly. So although I did my summer recap last week (see previous post: The Best of Summer 2015), I figured we could hold onto this season for just a bit longer with a bonus post! Woo-hoo!

For this look, I'm having some fun with my Free People Parisian Slip Dress by layering it under one of my favorite summer dresses. Read on to find out all about it!

Plus, we have a few cool things to show you after the post. We're asking you to vote on our Best of Summer 2015 poll and take the tour of our new layout!

Friday Favorites + Link-Up

Friday Favorites, friday-favorites-link-up, popular-fashion-blog-link-ups, fall-trends-2015, Fall 2015 Trends, banana-republic-blue-square-asymmetric-jacquard-dress, banana-republic-micro-stripe-sleeveless-turtleneck-dress, white-house-black-market-sleeveless-trench, banana-republic-anika-pointed-toe-tassel-flat, white-house-black-market-wide-toggle-stretch-belt, white-house-black-market-asymmetrical-pencil-skirt

Happy Friday, everyone! Can you believe the summer season is over? Hopefully we'll continue to get some nice weather into September, but this is when people start to become more autumn-minded. The laid-back summer attitudes turn into the straight-to-business fall mindsets. We're back to the hustle and bustle! Before we get too ahead of ourselves, what are you all doing this weekend?

It's Friday, so you know what that means for us- another edition of Friday Favorites. This week we're back with another classic collection, although it is geared towards the fall season! 

Here are my favorites-of-the-moment!

As we go into new seasons, I always look forward to embracing the new trends and styles. And as much as I despise the cold weather, sometimes fashion is the only thing that gets me through the brutal winters we've been having here on the east coast! Thinking about wearing my cute coats gives me something to look forward to! But let's not jump so far ahead of ourselves, we've still got fall and as much as I don't want to leave the summer behind, the fall season is approaching.

So, what have we got to look forward to this season? Here are my 4 fall essentials and how to wear them!
