the temps have cooled down here in georgia the past few days. there’s rain in the forecast, and more rain. of course, because we are working on our backyard project. but not to worry as most of the hardscape is in place. all we need now is for fall to arrive then the sod and plants will finally be planted. i can’t decide who will be happier. oscar or mr. style. at the moment oscar has a dirt yard to patrol that turns into mud when it rains. oscar could care less if he gets muddy but mr. style is ever vigilant to clean those dirty paws before oscar comes back into the house.

but i’m pretty sure i will breathe a sigh of relief when our yard project comes to an end. i’m a big fan of outdoor rooms. it’s so relaxing to sit outside in the evening to watch the sunset. or dine al fresco. maybe even throw smores over the firepit to let the chocolate melt and marshmallow crisp. while i’m waiting, i think i’ll go back to enjoying summer even though the days are beginning to shorten. and i do love wearing dresses similar here and here hot summer days. it’s a no-brainer outfit. just add accessories, and you’re good to go.

these sandals similar here and here have been in my closet for several seasons. the gold stud details and double buckles toughen up a feminine outfit. plus, it’s modern and a smidge edgy. these small details are what keep classic style from going stale.

a low-slung belt is added to give definition and a little casual chic. a hobo bag similar here and here reinforces this laid-back attitude. it just might be one of my all-time favorite handbag silhouettes.

a bold lip is added shockaholic by smashbox. of course, pedicured toes are a must all summer long. this shade is i’m not really a waitress by o.p.i. do you ever wonder how they come up with nail polish names? some are just too cute.
