The Steele Maiden: Loft yellow floral dress and denim jacket

Monday in the rearview, a 3 day work-week (thanks to travel for my cousin’s wedding at the end of this week) and weather that is nothing short of blissful. AKA a list of things I’m focusing on instead of missing a blog post on Monday, stress due to only being at work for 3 days this week and the thought that summer is ending soon. It’s all about perspective right? For instance I thought this was the perfect summer dress (yellow, floral and happy).. but now I’m starting to see that with a few layers (how about a cropped jacket in denim, leather or suede.. or a chunky crewneck sweater) this could just be the perfect fall dress too. Glass decidedly half full.

I’m still styling it for summer (because it ain’t over ’til it’s over, right?) with a light jacket, strappy heels and a fun clutch but later I’ll be accessorizing with a wool wide brim hat and ankle boots. In the meantime I’m trying to check off all the things on my summer bucket list – like seeing an outdoor movie in the park, grabbing a lobster roll, sneaking in another beach day or too and mixing up a fresh sangria recipe. What’s on your lists before the season ends?
