Last Call for Summer Wear

I bought this tropical summer dress back in June... and then completely forgot about it. I discovered it this morning when I was searching for a casual Friday dress, and thought I should probably wear it now while the weather was still mild enough.

Dress: London Times Tropical Print Fit and Flare Dress

Sandals: BCBGeneration Jakalyn Gold and Clear Ankle-Strap Sandals

I love the fit of this dress -- it's so flattering! -- and it's a great dress for a more laid back day at the office. It's still hard for me to believe we're about midway through October. I definitely feel like it should still be summer.

I'm looking forward to this weekend, when I will be catching up on sleep and meeting up with some high school friends to drink wine and paint a picture. The place: Pinot's Palette in Johns Creek. I reconnected with these amazing women at my high school reunion in August, and we made it a point to try to see each other more often. We will be painting a scene that reminds me of one of my favorite holiday movies, The Nightmare Before Christmas. Plus, I love any excuse to hang out, drink wine and chat with old friends... even if I don't have an artistic or crafty bone in my body.

I also hope to try to see the new movie, The Girl on the Train, since I read the book when it came out last year. I've seen some mixed reviews, but I still want to watch the film and see for myself if it's a good adaptation.
