Can you guys even BELIEVE that it’s almost August?! Like, where has the time gone? Half of me is in denial, working hard to soak up all of the lasting moments of summer; the other half of me can’t wait for pumpkin spice lattes, jeans, and sweaters paired with scarves. I’m totally a Wisconsin girl; I can’t get enough of my seasons!

That being said, I’ve realized that I only have a month left to showcase super cute summer outfits for y’all. Today’s outfit does not disappoint!

This is the first criss cross item of clothing I’ve bought, and at first, I couldn’t tell if I loved this dress or hated it. The cut was a little weird for me; I feel like it’s not super flattering because it is wide spread, but I also like that because it’s very flowy and boho. I LOVE the burgundy color for sure, and decided that I need to invest in more burgundy because it complements my skin and hair well.

I’m definitely going to miss the free-spirited, carefree vibes of summer. Once September 7th starts, my schedule is going to be jam-packed with a full load of graduate courses. In addition, I start my school counseling internship and a new job, which I am super excited about but also really nervous! Not to worry though, I’ll still find the time to blog some super cute fall outfits! Fall is my favorite season and I’m excited to share with you some fun collabs I have lined up. Time is moving so fast; the carousel never stops turning, friends! (If you get that TV reference, you’re officially my hero.)

I’d love to hear about the best moments of YOUR summer. Please share with me below in the comment section anything fun you would like to share!
