Striped Number

Skirt: Robert Rodriguez (also, completely swooning over this one) | Top: ASOS | Shoes: Brian Atwood | Clutch: Saint Laurent

I'm having a hard believing that September is only a few weeks away. What the hell? I probably say this every year, but this has been the quickest summer ever. "They" were telling the truth when they said, "the older you get, the quicker time passes." With that being said, I'm trying to soak in the last few weeks of August as much as I can. Today I'm heading to Maine for two days with LL Bean, so the thought of being in a serene environment and possibly having lobster makes me very, very happy. Follow along on instagram. 

Also, wanted to announce the winner of the BHLDN givevaway.....
...is Amanda Grace. Congrats!! Please email me at Helena@BrooklynBlonde.com.
