Tangled up in Blue

Thursday, August 30, 2018 3:30 AM

Can you believe it is almost Labor Day? 
How can this be? I feel like the Summer just started! 

I had such an awesome week away last week, but this week has been the most stressful of the Summer for sure. Nolan doesn't go back to school until the Tuesday after Labor day and with camps being done for the season it has been a struggle to figure out what to do with him while I am at work. Fortunately, he has some great friends and has had an action packed social schedule for these last days of the season. The thought of having to get him up and on the bus by 6:50 starting Tuesday is petrifying!

I am actually a little embarrassed about how many times I have worn this dress.  You may remember this post from last November.  I styled this maxi going into the Winter with thigh high boots and a fuzzy coat.  The super light fabric, plunging neckline and high slit make it perfect for the Summer. 
I wore it to Father's Day dinner, out for drinks with friends and to a cook out.  I can safely say it was this season's staple. 

What were some of you Summer go-tos?

  1. This dress is the perfect way to say goodbye to summer! I can't believe it's over either...I swear, its the fastest season!!


  2. Such a pretty dress on you! I love anything blue so this is calling my name. I don't know where the summer went. It can be so hard with camps not going until the end of summer. Thankfully ours went an extra week this year, but I still have to take a few extra days off next week because they don't go back until Thursday. Parents could seriously use up all their vacation time just with days that their kids have off. Enjoy the weekend! Sierra Beautifully Candid

  8. As much as I would love to have this heat wave be over, it seems I'm constantly feeling a bit freaked at how fast time is passing me by.
    That blue Rosegal slit print long flowing wrap dress looks very pretty, and you look beautiful wearing it.
    That waterfront locale looks very pretty and a like a relaxing place to be.
    Giving away my age, thew second I saw the title of this blog post this song popped into my head (I saw Bob Dylan perform it live back in the late '60's):
    Bob Dylan -Tangled Up In Blue (Video) - YouTube
    I don't go out much, but I do love looking at the water. I'm afraid my summer go-to was mainly watching movies+TV series on NetFlix.

    1. One of my favorite songs, and the reason I named this post Tangled up in Blue!
      Have a great weekend!

  10. This is a beautiful dress! The blue color is very pretty and I love the leg slit as it adds subtle sexiness to overall look. You look great and loving that beach water backdrop. It does make me feel like time is flying by so fast. We started school this week and the first day was always the hardest. I hope you are having a great day so far!

  30. OK this dress was absolutely made for you! It is stunning!

  31. I just found you from Thursday Moda. Love this dress, I love maxi dresses with sleeves like this and the color and print are so pretty!
    I have a Nolan too - mine is 20 and a junior in college! It's not a name I hear often!

  32. I just love such place. Honestly speaking, the dress you wear is just match the weather, the background, so it's really looking mindblowing.

  33. Beautiful dress! I love the title of the post too - it's one of my favourite Bob Dylan songs. Juggling work and childcare is so stressful at times...I hope you get your son to school ok and are not too frazzled!
