While the summer heat is still strong, August always gets me thinking about fall and the cooler, cozier days to come. Dreams of warm mugs of tea, blankets and evenings by a fire fill my head. I also start to wonder what I’m going to do with my time when it's too cold to go outside.

Let’s get dolled up!

Typically, my weekends in the summer are filled with bridal showers, baby showers, and weddings. This summer is looking a little different – a little more time around the pool, and a lot less time partying. That’s fine by me, but I must admit I do miss getting all gussied up for a special event. “Business casual” is a popular style of attire at the office, so let’s make “Home Fancy” a thing!
