What to wear on this, the last day of August?
How about one more one-shoulder-top for old times’ sake :)
And a striped one no less. Always a good thing. A summertime thing in this case.
I may not be retiring this silhouette just yet but I’m afraid this particular beauty won’t be making the cut for fall, which, in case you’ve been in a deep sleep for several weeks, is seriously, right around the corner. For now though, this pretty little bow-embellished J.Crew top works perfectly for our still 80-degree days, infusing just the right amount of chic into an otherwise basic look.
Tomorrow, though, let’s talk about tomorrow…
I’ll be left saying what I say at every month’s end – Where did the time go? Which by the way, seems to move at warp speed right about now, don’t you think?
I just know that…
Crazy thing, time. It is both maddening and magical.
Maddening because no matter what we do we can’t stop the clock and magical because, well, that’s just what the whole process of living life is – magical – as long as you’re really living it.
So what do you say? Let’s go. Let’s do this new month with gusto. Let’s laugh more, love more and give more and let’s remember our friends in Houston by donating what we can to help those devastated by Hurricane Harvey. Get more details on how you can help here.

It’s not always easy to transform our summer items to the next season!! But this gorgeous top will be ready and waiting next year!
Love that top and the way you styled it. Perfect for fall transition!
Hello Mary, this is adorable! That is one of the cutest one shoulder tops I have seen and I love it with the wider leg trousers. In answer to your comment on my blog the other day, I graduated from Indiana University but took graduate courses at Notre Dame. The university is just about 45 minutes from where we live and we have many ties to the university. How wonderful about your daughter, it’s such a spectacular University.
You! So adorable ALWAYS! Here’s to another month!
I love this post! Such a great look but your words also ring especially true. I couldn’t agree with you more about time and how the days fly by, but as you say, let’s make the most of what lies ahead! Cheers to an incredible new month and season!
That top is the best! Perfect for the end of summer! You look gorgeous!

Time always travels at warp speed for me Mary! I’m loving those jeans by the way. This is my favourite style of jeans xx
Mine, too, Laurie! Love that 70s vibe!
I can’t believe how quickly the summer flew by! I am excited for fall outfits though :)
I have to admit, I hate seeing summer end but fall is really my favorite time of the year :)
