Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!
Can you believe that next week it will be Labor Day, the unofficial end of Summer – where did August go? I don’t know about you but I don’t rush to put away my summer clothes and break out the Autumn gear. I like to leisurely linger into Indian Summer by continuing to wear white jeans and sundresses.
Last year I did a few Labor Day DIY’s one of which was upcycling a Sundress into a Maxi Skirt, you can read that post HERE. Today I am wearing that Maxi Skirt with a mustard-color blouse thrifted from GW Boutique (Goodwill) and Wedge Sandals from Target.
When the weather cools, I will wear an oversized sweater with the skirt
Gold tone accessories including watch from Avon and ring from Burlington Coat Factory
Are you ready for the cooler weather of Autumn or are you like me and love the heat of the Summer?
Today I am linking up with Katherines Corner, come on over and congratulate her on reaching 10,000 followers – woohoo!

Have a fantastical day – Smooches!
I hope everyone had a great holiday filled with fun, family and lots of food. Our holiday included a little shopping and a lot of grilling including today. Unfortunately, it rained most of the day and there were even reports of tornado-like winds downstate. Because of the weather we spent the day inside and I did a few chores and DIY projects.
Although unofficially this is considered the last day of summer, I am not ready to put away the summer clothing, including the white! We still have Indian Summer in October and during that time some of the days can be balmy.
One of my DIY projects was up-cycling a Maxi dress, cutting off the bodice above the elastic waist to make it a skirt. Now the maxi skirt will be worn with a light-weight pullover during Indian Summer or with boots and long, bulky sweater in the fall.
The black, faux suede loafers were purchased from Walmart for $14.97. I haven’t decided which embellishment to use, but at that price I may get a few more pairs to create different styles.
I hope you have a stress free and productive work week, try not to squeeze 5 days into 4 because it never works!!!
