I know that this weekend happened to be Labor Day weekend, which heralds in the fall season…but that doesn’t mean I’m abandoning bright colors just yet! I am still going to be embracing floral and pops of color in my outfits for the time being. After all, it’s still over 90 degrees here in Florida for a while longer!
There is something so happy and free about a swishy printed skirt like the one I’m wearing. Initially, I was drawn by the color and pattern – the bright purple, blue, and cream was oh so pretty. But when I put it on and realized the swingy, full nature of the cut, I was hooked. It was oh so girly, and is a nice contrast to the prim pencil skirts in my closet.
It didn’t hurt to have a pair of gilttery, pointy toed ballet flats in my wardrobe either. Ah, a perfect punch of color and glitz for the end of summer!
I also have to point out my handbag: it’s my trusty Dre Hartmann Cameron hobo – it’s a camera bag! I love that I can carry my DSLR around in style with this camera case: it protects my camera and lenses and still allows me space for personal items. Justin surprised me with this bag a little over a year ago, and I have really enjoyed carrying it around with me.

Will you still be wearing bright colors after Labor Day?
I’m sticking with bright colors for a while, too! The hot weather here in NYC makes it hard to transition to warmer clothes and fall colors just yet!

Such a cute outfit for running around. If I’m ever lucky enough to need a camera bag, that’s the kind I would want – looks like a purse, so it doesn’t “stick out” too much!
I’m glad you like the camera bag! It is nice to have something that doesn’t scream “I’m a camera bag! Steal me!”
I love your floral skirt! So adorable. Great blog!
So glad you enjoyed one of our camera bags! Great blog!
Thanks so much! I really do love the bag; wish I could add the others to my collection. It was hard to make a choice between the options. 🙂
