Anthropologie Sweater // Madewell Skirt // Anthropologie Booties, Similar // Michael Kors Bag 

This is and always has been one of my favorite sweaters.  It's super short though and so I have always had a difficult time finding things to wear it with.  I thought it went perfect with this Madewell skirt and I wore it on the perfect day.  It felt, looked, and even sounded like fall the day I wore this.  I am totally looking forward to more days that that.  Too bad it looks like it's going to be close to the 90's this weekend.  Maybe I'll just turn on the AC and drink some hot tea and drink myself into believing it's nice out.  

Regardless, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Great news!  I have the cutest, sweetest baby niece there has ever been.  Yes, yes I'm a very proud aunt but do you blame me?  This sweet girl was born last Wednesday and she just couldn't be more perfect.  Unfortunately, she had to stay in the hospital for an entire week due to an infection but she's doing well and she gets to go home today.  I'm so happy for my sister and brother in law.  It has been a long road for them but it's so obvious that God has had little Evie in their plan all along and he couldn't have chosen a more perfect daughter for them.  They are going to be amazing parents, it's already so apparent that it's just second nature for them.  I'm so thankful that she is in all of our lives and I cannot wait to spoil her rotten! Love you little Evie Alyce!

J.Crew Tee // Asos Skirt // J.Crew Wedges // J.Crew Link Bracelet // Target Watch // J.Crew Bag

I kind of think I want every single midi skirt on Asos.  They have so many good ones that if I could, I would buy almost all of them.  This one is super comfortable and it's perfect for this transitional time right now.  Plus I think with a chunky sweater and booties I could wear it through winter (especially here).

Also, if there is one thing I miss about Utah (other than the cute grandparents) it would be what the dry heat did for my hair.  I mean seriously it looked crazy good those 2 days and now I'm stuck with this mess on my head.  Luckily I at least have a color appointment on Thursday because I'm pretty sure I can't put that one off anymore... and I think my stylist will most definitely agree!



Quilted // Pleated // Zippers // Midi

I don't know about you, but I have been wanting more leather in my life lately.  The problem, however is that I just can't swing the price tag on most of the items.  I know, I know it will last forever, it's a classic, blah blah blah.  That's all good and great but I want too many things to splurge on one skirt/jacket/top.  So I compiled a few skirts that totally give you the look without breaking the bank.  I already bought one and tried for another (sadly they are sold out of my size).  I hope one of these tickles your fancy and you are able to get the look for far less.

3.1 Phillip Lim for Target Sweater // J.Crew Shorts // J.Crew Sandals // J.Crew Bag

We spent the weekend in Utah hanging out with my husbands grandparents.  We played a lot of UNO, talked about just about everything under the sun, ate a ton and hung out with some goats down the street.  It was pretty hot out there so a pair of shorts and my new sweater was all I could manage.  We had so much fun and just wish that they lived closer so that we could see them much more often.  It was so nice to just relax and unplug for a bit.  I hope your weekend was as uneventful as mine!

Madewell Sweater, Similar // Zara Skort // J.Crew Booties // Target Watch

I posted this outfit last night after a long and early day at work yesterday.  I was tired, grumpy and also had to get up quite early this morning and somewhere in between all those things didn't realize I never wrote content for this post.  Oopsies!  Good thing this outfit is pretty self explanatory it's black on black on white.  I'm also pretty psyched Zara brought this skort back for the fall.  It's always fun when your summer items can really transition into fall (because they're still being sold).  Regardless, here's to hoping this week gets a little easier!


 Madewell Cardigan // J.Crew Tank // Madewell trouser, Similar // Sam Edelman Sandals // J.Crew Bag // J.Crew Watch // Madewell Sunnies

These last few weeks, and I'm sure a few to come, I have been going back from still dressing for summer and moving on to fall.  The weather here is still so warm and comfort is definitely still key for me.  I have had these denim trousers for so many years and have only worn them several time.  I couldn't tell you why because they are so light and comfortable.  Regardless, I wore them out for a casual dinner because nothing else felt right.  Hope you're weekend was full of fun!  Onto another week!

J.Crew Sweater // J.Crew Skirt // Michael Kors Bag // J.Crew Bracelets // Sam Edelman Booties // Madewell Sunnies

Simple outfit, awesome shoes.  That's what this outfit is all about.  I thought these booties were amazing when I saw them online  but I can assure you, they are better in person.  I knew they could transform an outfit but my life??  Ok, I kid.  But they are pretty cool.  Also, I can't stop wearing this skirt.  I've worn it 4 times in the last 2 weeks.  This outfit comes to you very highly recommended.

In other news, tomorrow is Friday and that is something to be happy about!

 Target Hat, Similar // Anthropologie Top // UO Jeans // J.Crew Shoes // J.Crew Link Bracelet

I found this hat at Target like a month ago and bought it immediately because I had been looking for one all summer.  So when the temps cooled to mid 80's this week there was no way I was gonna pass up the chance to wear it.  You have to be strategic when it comes to dressing fall here.  

Have you been waiting to wear any item in particular?

H&M Top // Zara Skirt // Zara Sandals // J.Crew Bag, Similar

A crop top just makes everything a little more fun.  Maybe not everything, probably just the outfit but I guess that's good enough.  Try it out, I think you'll agree.

In other news, I bought this purse for my mom last Christmas because she told me so many times how much she loved it and then she never used it.  I would feel like a gift failure except for the fact that now I get to use it and I am totally enjoying it.  She might not be getting it back, but I think she's cool with it, it's not the first time this has happened...
