Dress: c/o The Limited
Sunglasses: Le Specs
Shoes: Nordstrom Rack (no longer available), similar here
Hat: from Greece, similar here
Watch: Marc by Marc Jacobs

Yesterday, my doctor told me I can start going for a strolls. This is a big step and I can't wait to start going for short walks! Hopefully, I can quickly gain back my endurance to do my normal day to day stuff!

I also can't believe it is almost the end of August. Where did time go?! These photos remind me of the middle of summer. When these photos were taken, September felt so far away and I was breaking a sweat from the heat. This checkered swing dress made the summer's heat bearable. It was airy, breathable, and fun to twirl in. Unfortunately, this dress is sold out, but there are so many other similar dresses. So I found other swing dresses that be transitioned into Fall like this one. They would look perfect paired with booties. On cooler temperatures, you can wear it with tights and long sleeves.
