Trench Thursday.

Counting today, there are only four days left in August, FOUR. It seemed like August just started yesterday. Every year it feels like each Summer goes by faster and this year is no exception. It starts slower in June, speeds up in July and then August is kaboom - it is gone in the blink of an eye. Am I alone in thinking this? So yeah, in less than a month Fall/Autumn officially starts. But folks, it is between high 80s to low 90s here, definitely in the midst of Summer, weather-wise.

Before Summer is kaput, I wanted to wear some more Dresses, especially ones I have ignored for a long time, so just like yesterday, my Yellow Trench Dress today hadn't been worn since last year, from last Easter to be exact. Trench Dresses (sister to Shirt Dresses) are very in right now. But really styles get recycled often, because I purchased this Armani Exchange Beauty in the Summer of 2009. I have worn it only about half a dozen of times unfortunately, as much as I love it. Finally I re-wore it, just a day before I started my 30 for 30 challenge, and a couple of days before Vivian got a hair-cut, which you saw in our Summer Vacation Photos. Her Floral Skirt+Tank 2-piece has some Yellow in it, also. I styled the Dress with Patent Leather Ballerinas, Black Pave Globe Studs and just added a couple of Colorful Bangles. I have been on a Yellow kick lately (examples 1 and 2). What about you? Are you wearing any Yellow this Summer? And, do you own any Trench Dresses? I found some great ones online, linked on the bottom. =) I'd love to own the Ann Taylor and Rachel Zoe Dresses - they are Gorgeous!!
