Farewell, Summer...Welcome, Autumn!

On this final day of summer 2015, I'm going to share with you all the rest of my summer outfit photos. Don't worry, there aren't a lot - only three. Each of these outfits made me pretty happy, though, so I didn't want to let them slip into the past without acknowledgement. I've condensed the outfit details, mainly because I don't feel like poking through my closet to note brand names. Hmm...I might just keep doing outfit details this way. Brand names don't really matter to me, anyway. It's far more informative to know where a piece was purchased.

Worn on a Sunday in August:

 Outfit details: top & skirt ~ JC Penney's
sandals ~ Vanderbuilt's

earrings ~ Seattle Goodwill
bracelets ~ yard sale finds

This is what I wore the last Sunday of August:

 Outfit details:  olive sweater ~ suddenly materialized in my dresser
lace peplum tank ~ JC Penney's
skirt ~ Goodwill
shoes ~ Goodwill
necklace ~ Target

I love how the mornings are cool and foggy in late August! Brings back memories of the kids getting on the bus, ready to start a new school year. Now I watch my neighbor's kids get on the bus on foggy mornings.

And this was my outfit the Sunday of Labor Day weekend:  (Cuteness alert! Kitten photobomb!)

 Outfit details:  cotton top & skirt ~ JC Penney's
belt ~ thrifted
sandals ~ Trade Home Shoes
sunglasses ~ ???

 earrings ~ JC Penney's
necklaces, short to long ~ yard sale, self-constructed, MIL's collection

bracelet ~ yard sale

As you may have noticed, I did some shopping at JC Penney's over the summer. They released some of those fabulous $10 off a $10 purchase coupons, and I scoped out the clearance racks. I loved "Weekend" collection, with its gauzy white cotton and cool blue. I bought a white cotton above-the-knee casual skirt, too, and a striped tee for an everyday outfit with a nautical look.

Tomorrow is the first day of autumn...my favorite season! Now if the weather would just glance at the calendar and get with the program...

Red Sundress - Sunday Style

Gracious sakes...I wore this dress to church at least six weeks ago! I'd hoped to get caught up on my summer outfit posts before the end of August, but obviously that hasn't happened. Life has simply been too busy!

Outfit details:  Jones New York dress - thrifted; Style & Co sweater - thrifted;
BOC sandals - Vanderbuilt's; red seaglass necklace - eBay.

Sorry about the blurry pic above; it was the "best" one Some Postman took of me without the sweater. I've found that a sweater - or a shirt with sleeves - is necessary to wear at church. The air conditioning is set fairly low in the sanctuary, and they always have the fans going. This past Sunday, the fan directly over our pew was on TURBO speed, making the four of us (SP, me, our son, and his girlfriend) huddle together for warmth. I suggested to the kids that they wear long sleeves next week!
