Shen Dove Style: August's Arrival

Monday, August 1, 2011

August's Arrival

Blazer: H&M; Skirt: Francesca's; Shoes: thrifted; Bag: thrifted; Tank: Gap; Sunnies: Target; 
Watch: Francesca's; Necklace: JessLC

Despite the excessive heat, I really have enjoyed the summer and am in no rush to see it end.  I love the sunshine of summer which lends itself to spending time outdoors (unless it's 100+ degrees like it has been...).  But August is always the reality check that the summer is technically winding down.

So let's all set some fun goals (schedule a day trip, squeeze in a few outdoor movie screenings, go to a late summer festival, visit a nearby beach) and some goals centered around productivity (finish a task you've procrastinated on this summer).  

Here's to a great Monday and a great month!

I love this look Shen! You always look so posh and powerful in your photographs. I love it : )

Beautiful.  Great skirt, and that jacket with the collar up is fierce.

Very pretty, lovely skirt and jacket! I'm sad to see summer go and wish it could stay longer!

Love the aviators! :)

This one is a beaut! I love the popped collar, SO fantastic with short hair (it makes me miss my short-haired days)

That's so nice of you to say that!  Passersby were looking at me strangely while I was taking these photos, so I'm happy it didn't show : )

Thanks lady!  I can't even take credit for the popped collar idea.  I borrowed it from my Mom who's been doing it for years.  And you can def pin your hair up with, that's what I do! I've seen a bunch of cute updo's all over the Internet lately.

it's reassuring to hear you say that you feel like august means summer is going away--i said that to a coworker the other day and she laughed it off and said 'THAT'S HIGHSCHOOL STUFF!' damn, i have been out of high school for nearly nine years, and it made me feel kind of dumb.  she is only a couple years older than me, so wtf! how can you not feel like the shortening days and cooler nights are summer ending?

Ahh cute skirt and I like the matching shoes!  I know, when did it become August?  Crazy that I'm already looking at fall stuff and fashion week is practically right around the corner.

 You are definitely not the only one that noticed that the season is gradually changing.  I enjoy things about each season, but I am so not ready for this summer to be over yet : )

No reprieve in August for me! Won't end for awhile. Loving the blazer!
