September's Swan Song for the Sundress

Boots and a bright denim jacket extend the life of a dark chambray sundress for an early September outdoor picnic and movie at dusk.  Dress and Jacket (Butterfly Consignment); Boots (Justin).

September slips in silently
Stealing Summer with a sigh
As sun sets on the sundress,
The Autumn burn grows nigh

Swath shoulders bare in denim
Swap sandals out for boots
Give the sundress two more nights
As fall puts down its roots

A music fest on Labor Day
An outdoor film at dusk
The sundress sings its swan song
in shades of brown and rust

Air still warm but growing crisp
Leaves green start turning red
The sundress made for Summer's heat
Slinks off to Winter's bed.
A sundress in autumnal hues felt just right for a warm Labor Day weekend at an outdoor Music Fest headlined by Michael Franti and Spearhead.  Dress (Macy's); Bag and Hat (Nine West); Sandals (Lindsay Phillips SwitchFlops with homemade button detail); Watch (Fossil); Bracelet (Lenny & Eva); Petrified Wood and Silver Pendant (a gift from my fabulous mom).
Fashion is what you buy; Style is what you do with it!
