Sugarlaws: Living Sweetly.

It’s hard to believe that after a summer of sweltering heat, it’s already August.  Which means, very sadly, that September is approaching at a far-too-rapid pace.  Realizations like this make me dream of living in Southern California, where slush and snow and frigid temperatures are this fun, novel thing that you get to experience only when you happen to visit New York.

So I’m trying to linger in these last weeks of summer, with hope for a long, exceptionally warm fall.  This beautiful, delicate Rebecca Taylor dress was perfect for a summer sunset, which Kristen captured beautifully.  I’ve worn it for everything from brunch with my parents to a Saturday night wedding — it’s that versatile.  Throw in some patent heels or ballet flats (or these platform sandals from Rachel Roy), and you’ve got the quintessential summer outfit.

    Love Rebecca Taylor. Her dresses are so feminine.

    Love the dress, but those heels are amazing!! Looking great!!!

    PS. Totally understand how you feel about September…. I lived in Canada for several years, when the summer ended I just hated the thought of what I was in for…..

    Maybe I’m just out of it today but I must say I don’t like the black belt on that beautiful dress….I just don’t think they go together.  But you still are one gorgous model.
