Friday's Letters & Friday's Fancies Week #30: Labor Day

Dear Husband, thanks for buying me the Harry Potter collection.  It kept me very entertained while you were away!  Dear Kitties, thank you for sleeping with me while the husband was away.  You guys are too cute!  Dear Banana Republic, I love you.  Thanks for having a 50% off full priced sale for card holders and providing me with a $30 rewards card.  I ended up getting some brown booties for $44!  See them here.    Dear Three Day Weekend, I'm very excited about staying home and getting some much needed R AND R with the husband.  Hubby in Bristol for 2 nights, Wifey in Philly for 3 different nights, it's time to stay home together!  Dear Blogger, why doesn't the ampersand sign work properly in a post?  That's annoying...  What if I don't want to type out the word AND...  Dear Target, thanks for selling cute and affordable things.  Two of my most recent favorite purchases here + here.  Dear Philly, you went much better than I expected!  Thanks to a dear old friend who is a local and two coworkers who like a little adventure.  Pictures next week!  Dear Zara, thank you for being close to the hotel in Philly!  Now, if you could put one in the Raleigh area I'd be much happier!  Thanks!

Labor Day
Strapless and open shoulder dresses are almost done for the year with the cooler weather approaching. Nothing says embrace the last days of Summer like a beautiful summer dress!  I still can't believe Fall is in 23 days!  I can't wait!

  7. Love this labor day set! I would be happy if there was a Zara in my town. But then again everyone and their mother would be shopping there so we would all have the same clothes in my town. Hmmm...
