Happy Labor Day!

Labor Day is the unofficial end of Summer/beginning of Autumn.  Which needs to be celebrated in style. Usually Nautically.  So I did.

Sweater: Ann Taylor Jeans: Gap Necklace: Kate Spade Sunglasses: Madewell

I figured if I was going to be hanging around boats all day, that I should probably wear this Anchor Sweater that I got from Ann Taylor. It's really cute and really cozy, but even though it was 78 degrees Fahrenheit I wasn't at all overheated (thankfully).

And I wore a ton of Makeup to make it look like I wasn't wearing hardly any at all : Nars Tinted Moisturizer, Nars Creamy Concealer, Hourglass Hidden Concealer, The Balm Hot Mama Blush, The Balm Mary Lou Manizer Highlighter, Marc Jacobs The Lolita Palette, Urban Decay Bourbon Eyeliner, Covergirl Bombshell Chocolate Kiss Eyeliner, YSL Shocking Mascara, Nyx Tea Rose Lipstick, YSL Gloss Volupte #15 Grenade Pepite.

And what Nautical Adventure is complete without a bit of Topsiding? There aren't any.

And speaking of there not being any, there also was no actual Nautical Adventure and anyone looking forward to there being a picture of me on a boat will be disappointed. I can't swim, and I don't like boats. Which is actually why I have boat shoes, if I ever have to be on a wet dock for any reason I don't slip and fall in. The only shoes I trust to keep me on the dock and not in over my head are Sperry's. And my sweater has an anchor because I like nautical motifs on clothing, anchors, boats, lobsters, fish.

There's a gated community near where I live that has a really beautiful lake, some walking trails, with really beautiful scenery and a sports bar overlooking it all that makes the best hamburgers ever. Which is where we went for dinner to celebrate Labor Day. The closest I got to any boat was standing on the dock to take a picture of my shoes. Because I matched, and it was a really gorgeous place to take pictures.

How did you celebrate Labor Day?
