summer always ends with good memories.

If you couldn't tell from a few of my previous posts.....I am a little sad that summer is almost over. We are mid-way through August now. And there are still so many things I want to do! Like go to an amusement park, spend a day at the zoo, head to a baseball game, and see friends. Summer might be on the way out...but I am still trying to pack as much fun as possible into the season. In the next couple of weeks I have a few concerts to attend. Honestly? I am super excited about them. One is Rick Springfield with my mom and my friend. The others are by a country artist another friend and I absolutely adore. We are seeing him a three times. Twice in one day! Fingers crossed all of these upcoming girls days - and nights - out will be a blast.

Speaking of girls nights out, I wanted to share a little outfit inspiration. With these concerts coming up I have been pondering the all-too important question: what will I wear? While I have not come up with a definitive answer....there is one look that represents my current state of mind. Fashion wise at least! This is a recent beauty set I created. Take a look!

Why these pieces? Why this outfit? I love blending hard and soft together to create a sophisticated finished product. Which is why the intricate design on the top called to me. It was the perfect contrast with those faux leather shorts. I kept the accessories neutral but chic and added on a bolder bracelet for that extra pop. To liven up this girls night out look, I decided to play with colour. That vibrant pink shade would look great on the cheeks or on the lips. Just something to give it that fun, flirty look. Overall I love how this turned out....and I wish I owned it all! Who knows. Maybe I can come up with my own version for one of the nights out I have coming up.

What do you think of this outfit? What are your end of summer plans?
