Goody Goody Gum Drops

This dress from designer Eva Franco is so sweet, and the design makes me think of candy, so of course I love it. I love all sweet things!

Unfortunately for my waistline, we now live very close to two ice cream places that I just adore: Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream and Vintage Custard. We like to get a cold treat almost every Sunday night. We just pile the dogs in the Tesla, and off we go. I'm sure this little ritual will end as the temperatures cool down, but for now I am enjoying it.

Dress: Eva Franco Button Dress (no longer available)

Eva Franco dresses are generally very feminine. Celebrity fans include Zooey Deschanel, who has worn several designs on New Girl. You can buy Eva Franco designs online at the following stores:

Arm Candy: Kate Spade New York Cobble Hill Cross-Body Purse

My sisters bought me this purse for my birthday a few years ago, and it was perfect for our vacation to Italy. I don't use it too often during the week, since I find myself needing a larger purse for everyday, but the color matches so perfectly with this outfit that I just had to use it. I'm a matchy-matchy kind of gal.

Shoes: Stuart Weitzman Exsling Nude Platform Peep-Toe Sandals

The sandals are no longer available, but here are some similar styles:

It's hard to believe that Labor Day is Monday, and that summer will soon be winding down. I love the long days, when it stays light until almost 9 p.m., and luscious summer fruits and veggies.

In other news: Brad Pitt is married! (Sigh.)
