So, apparently Monday is a holiday and the unofficial end of summer. Well, the sports world doesn’t take off very many holidays, but I am happy to be laboring away on this Labor Day. Even though I will still be wearing white jeans after Labor Day, here is an unofficial end to summer blog post featuring this Karlie tassel dress and colorful tassel accessories.
This dress became my official ‘brunch dress’ of the summer. I wore it to brunch in Chicago at Cindy’s, for mimosas and crabcakes at Juban’s in Baton Rouge and then for margaritas and guacamole with Shea one Sunday at Rum House. I am kind of sad that I have to put it away, but I know it will continue to get more use next spring and summer.
Since I am a sucker for anything that is multi-colored, when I saw this dress on Love Boutique’s Instagram, I knew I had to have it! I went on my lunch break to snag it before our summer trip to Chicago. Love has some of the cutest clothes in Baton Rouge, and when they post items on Instagram then tend to sell pretty quickly.
If you saw any of my other outfits from this summer, then some of these accessories should look familiar to you! They are part of my Must-Have Summer Favorites I wrote about earlier, and they were definitely packed for every trip this summer and worn out for sure! My J. Crew panama hat and pink Ray-Ban aviators were summertime staples, and I am glad I invested in them this year. They will be around for a while!
I had my eye on this BaubleBar tassel bracelet set for a while and finally pulled the trigger and purchased them. Since then, I have purchased a few other pieces from BaubleBar, including these pinata tassel drop earrings that are PER-FECT for LSU gameday. It has become one of my new favorite places to shop for jewelry, and I have bought more really cute gameday pieces that will be making their appearance on the blog soon! I went a little shopping crazy with the tassel trend, but they are just so much fun to wear.
These shoes were like the blogger shoes of the summer, and I FINALLY got my hands on them a couple of weeks ago. I would say these are one of the best investments I have made in shoes in a while. They are so comfortable and will pair well with many different types of outfits. I will be wearing these post-Labor Day with my white jeans. Yes, I am a rebel over here!
I hope you all had a lovely summer! While the weather is still very summer like down here in Baton Rouge, I am looking forward to fall clothes and colors and booties on repeat!
Sidenote: The washing instructions say you can hand wash this dress in cold water. I typically take this to mean you can wash it on delicate. DON’T DO THAT! I had the unfortunate experience of losing some tassels in the washer and having a mini-meltdown. However, I took it to my favorite tailor in town and they fixed it up for me. This will now only be brought to my dry cleaner!
