Outfit: Late Summer Style

thredup jacketHappy Friday friends! I’ve officially made it through my first week as a piano teacher, and I’m looking forward to the weekend! As August draws to a close and we near September, I find myself itching for fall. Autumn is my favorite season, and I’m so excited for it to arrive. I’m ready for fall candles, clothes, and plenty of spiced cider. As much as I’m looking forward to autumn, I’m trying to embrace the end of summer.

This maxi dress has been one of my favorite pieces all summer long, and lately I’ve been styling it to reflect the changing seasons. I love pairing it with my denim jacket so some contrast, as well as my little black suede lace-up flats. The addition of my favorite Madewell necklace and my already on repeat vintage bag complete the look. Today I also paired a lipstick I traditionally wear in the fall with a more summery face and eye look, and I love the way it compliments the outfit.

I thought they would make the perfect backdrop for these photos.

    1. Thanks Victoria! That’s awesome that you taught piano as well! How long have you played? I just got my degree, so I’m only just now teaching professionally, and not full time yet. I’m at a private school several days a week, and have students at my house as well. It’s so much fun to see them get excited about music!!
      Thanks so much for visiting today– I hope you’re having a lovely week!

      1. I have played for almost 16 years now. I have loved it! I taught for two years, but the girls I was teaching weren’t very passionate about it and only were doing it because their mom wanted them too. If I could teach again, I would love to have students who enjoy it! LOL! If I were to go to college, I would want to major in music. That is so awesome! I am glad you are enjoying it!
        Blessings,
        Victoria
