Hello! It's hard to believe that this summer is almost over. But after all- all good things must end. At this time in two days, I will be moved into my dorm room at Philadelphia University. How wild! I have spent the past week or so packing everything up that will travel with me to my new home this fall. Seeing everything all boxed up in my room is such an odd feeling. My walls are bare- no longer are my Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn posters displayed proudly on the wall. My closet is empty- no more shelves overflowing with shoes and no more hangers filled with dresses. Instead, all of my possessions that are near and dear to me (mainly clothing and shoes, might I add) are all sitting in the center of my room ready to leave Richmond. I'm just hoping that everything will fit in my dorm room- fingers crossed! Before I began to pack, I set aside a few outfits that I would be wearing for my last days in Virginia.

And how could I leave summer behind without wearing a few pieces that were my favorites this summer? My absolute favorite piece this summer would probably have to be this navy and white polka dot skirt. To me, this skirt is the epitome of summer style. The lightweight fabric keeps me cool while the classic yet slightly nautical print screams summer. Not to mention, the length, color and versatility of the skirt blow me away.

This mustard tank top has also been one of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe this season. It possesses a stunning texture, bold color and gorgeous shape. I mean, what more could I ask for in a tank top?

I didn't want this look to be too dark on the bottom (what with the light-colored top and dark-colored skirt) so I threw on a pair of mustard-y, tan flatforms. I love the way that they emphasize the mustard color in this look.

Since this is one of my last true summer looks, I wanted to add more color so I tied a printed, vintage scarf around my neck (also worn many, many times this summer) and grabbed my green clutch. Red lipstick and round, green-tinted sunglasses pulled everything together.

The fun colors and quirky, retro vibe of this look make this the perfect last look of this summer. Although I've had fun playing around with my wardrobe this summer and creating fresh summer looks, I much prefer fall fashion and look forward to a neutral color palette and layering this fall. Au revoir, summer of 2013!

  3. That skirt is awesome. Though I'm biased since I have a pair of shorts that look almost exactly the same - and yes, they are a summer staple for me. Hope you have a good start at college! :)
