I hope you had a great Labor Day weekend!  Mine was very relaxing which is exactly what I wanted.  I caught up with some friends and had the best the massage of my life!  This week is very short for me as I'm off to Seattle for a friends' bachelorette party on Friday.

I know I keep saying I'm ready for fall fashion, but this weekend reminded me that it will probably be summer here for a while.  It was so hot that the only thing I could do was embrace summer and wear my gladiator sandals (at least) one last time.  Since they are such a statement (I get comments from men and women every time I wear them), I kept everything else very simple.  I'm still loving this Old Navy vest and I paired it with my new skirt from H&M.  I couldn't find it on the website, but I highly recommend it.  It is made of a very weighty scuba material, so it holds its shape very nicely, and has a wave detailing at the hem, which adds a little bit of visual interest.  Thanks for reading and have a great day!

    1. I had the same problem here, even the ones with adjustable straps were too tight :( but Nicole looks great in them, and I love the shape of that skirt.
