Lulu Letty: A Farewell to Summer

A Farewell to Summer

Hi there! I'm Beatrice of DearBeatrice guest blogging today for Maria while she's away on a much needed relaxing vacation! I'm very honored to be one of her guest bloggers this week and I cannot wait to see what the other lovely girls have planned out! Not only is Maria one of my style icons, I also consider her a friend. She's very sweet, smart, beautiful, and has some of the most amazing blog photos! So about a week before she asked me to guest blog I had done a mini photo shoot with a friend of mine, Blythe who is an amazing photographer, and decided to save the photos for this post! It couldn't have been anymore perfect! When I think of Summer ending I think of the sun setting against a vast field. So this is my farewell to Summer and being a Southern Californian gal I must admit that even though I do not like it, Summer that is, it will be missed. So many fond memories and breezy outfits with hats and sundresses... I'll see you next year dear Summer.

What beautiful photos! I'm going to miss the warmth of Summer, but to be honest I am looking forward to Autumn, Winter not so much, but Autumn is my favourite time of year. Love your brooches! I've started to collect them!

I adore your Farewell post Beatrice!! This actually makes me almost sad that summer is leaving.

Blythe did a gorgeous job with the photos and your styling is, as always, impeccable.

Thank you so much for guest posting on my blog!
