It's that time again...the end of Summer.  That's when I feel like this dress is most appropriate.  It is for sure a Summer dress, but is full of the Fall colors I'm always craving by now.  Perfect for hanging out on my in progress patio with a cold drink.  Who am I kidding?  It's still too hot here to be out on any patio in the middle of the day!  Right now I just stand at my back door and look out longing for cooler temps so I can relax out there with a book or magazine.  I have plans for a fire pit that I know will be wonderful when Fall arrives!

After lunch last Sunday, I took the boys for a stroll down the jogging trails behind the restaurant while we waited for everyone else to finish eating.  The little guy was getting more than a little antsy and needed to burn off some energy.  We managed to snap a couple of cellphone pics along the way.

This Zebra top was found on a day of thrifting with my niece in Tennessee.  She was across the store and held it up for me to see.  I probably scared everybody when I screamed and ran towards her with my arms stretched out saying, "Is it mine? Tell me it's mine! IT'S MINE!!"  So here's the deal, we both like the same clothes and thrifting together can be a bit of a race, but we try to be nice and find things for each other too.  She was being nice. :o)

Gypsy Dress

Earrings: Thrifted
Diane Fries Dress: Thrifted
Black Leather Belt: Local
Zebra Wedges: Dillards (clearance)

The last time I wore this dress was HERE back in January.  This time around I let the dress pretty much stand on its own with minimal accessorizing.  It was kinda hard for me.  I felt like I should be wearing bangles and rings, but the July heat said, "Don't overdo it!"  So I slipped on chandelier earrings, buckled my belt, stepped into my wedges and went to church. :o)  And you know what?  I felt so light and comfortable!
