The last of the summer sun

H&M leopard maxi dress; Jeffrey Campbell Lita's from Solestruck; Burberry sunglasses

I'm sorry I haven't been the best blogger lately, I've been trying to soak up every last second of sun and degree of warmth while it's still around! So that meant going down to the lake this weekend for one last dose of German food and 32oz beers, and a walk along the pier. I always love checking out the semi-dilapidated boat houses that are covered in spider webs (that part freaks me out a bit, to be honest). And I had to take my H&M leopard maxi dress out for a spin! If you follow me on Twitter, you'll remember that I was frantically searching every H&M store within a 100 mile radius of my house for this dress, and it finally showed up when I had just about given up hope of ever finding it! So I'm sure I'll be wearing this dress at least once a week, until everybody starts calling me the leopard-girl... and probably still then, too.

Lovely dress, looks on good on you! I saw it hanging in the stores but I guess all over leopard print and blond hair isn't the best combination :P I like it better on brunettes, it's more stylish!

Jaime @ La vie...J'aime said...

Fabulous dress and these are such gorgeous photos! i love the lighting/background :)

Gayle said...

Lol, leopard girl. The name calling is well worth it! Its a lovely dress. How much does it retail for? If its within good range, I will def pay H&M a good visit while Im there!

hey ash,

glad your maxi found its way to you. its funny how once we let go of things and attachments for it - it makes its appearance.

xoxo,
Carrie

YAY! I'm so happy you found the dress! It's still ridiculous that my H&M wouldn't send it, but I'm relieved to know that it all worked out! <3

Ashley [Free Honey] said...

I love how you captured the sunset! I'm glad you managed to find your dress. I haaaate when H&M sells out of something I want, I get enraged and then hunt for it like a fiend, so I totally understand.

xoox, Ashley
