Tropical Interlude

It's a Wrap

I know, this is about as non-autumnal as it gets, right? I guess it's tough to get into the fall spirit when it's 90 degrees outside. We've been enjoying a glorious Indian summer here this past week, complete with those warm nights that are even rare for us in actual summer.

My sister-in-law Isolde thrifted this wrap dress in its unwrapped state and then gave it to me upon realizing that it was in fact a dress and not an apron, haha!

Silly Kid

With the weather reports calling for cooler temps ahead (it's foggy and cool right now and may even rain tomorrow) I decided to ignore my previously mentioned inclinations toward fall dressing and just go tropical for a day. It will most likely be many moons before I can wear this dress again.

Such a sweet frock! I am a sucker for wrap dresses.
Glad to see you are having fun playing dress up to suit the whims of nature's weather lately (at least that's how I've been approaching it...otherwise it drives me a little mad).

So funny that an apron was what she wanted, so beautiful as a dress!

i LOVE this dress, that's my kind of hot day dress! and i really love how you made it classico with the black accents. girl you know how to style it UP!

tropical flowers are a funny thing. they can be so beautiful or so cheesy like a men's 90s hawaiian shirt. i love finding the true pretties and then pretending to be in tahiti or mexico and swirling through tendrils of drooping bougainvillea.

let's go be tropical sisters together in baja someday! that would be a trip huh. i have always wanted to try surfing. let's get milla and charlie and amber and the whole gang and make a trip and rent a house on the shore. ten year reunion?!!

That would be AMAZING and Lucas would be so down for that sort of trip!!! Ha! I love that we're already planning our ten year reunion.
