Fall Formula

I'm loving this fall weather & everything that comes with it: breaking out my jackets again, shades of burgundy, the changing leaves, football Sunday's, pumpkin flavored everything, fires in the fireplace, soup for lunch, & sweaters worn with boots.  It's a slow transition into full on fall dressing, but it's been fun styling all my new pieces...

Sundays Were Made For...

After robbing you of a Photo Friday post last week (I was too busy trying to see as many people as possible while at home), I though I'd make up for it with an extra Sunday edition post...

Pulled all my Bears gear out from storage (here are just a few of my favorites)
Football snack platters are an unspoken tradition at our place
Small, DIY project I finished for a housewarming present...
Thai take-out for dinner is a must
3.1 Phillip Lim x Target launched two Sundays ago & I was lucky to find this bag
Pretty anniversary flowers & card from the manpanion

Happy Weekend :)

Photo Friday: 48 Hours in Iowa

Friday's here at last & it's been a crazy week to say the least.  Our trip back to the states was amazing- I left the manpanion in Chicago for the weekend to stay with friends & I made a solo trek to Iowa to see some of my favorites...

I started Christmas shopping last month & shipped a bunch of things to my parents...
I cannot actually put into words how awesome these swiss mushroom burgers were...
Up bright & early for the Iowa game last Saturday
My dad's trusty cooler (it's older than me) accompanied us to tailgate
Such a great atmosphere
Iowa smoked Western Michigan 59-3
Strawberry shakes from Culver's after the game
Family game night (Cards Against Humanity)

Happy Weekend :)

Fall Florals

I'm obsessed with this jacket- the subtle mix of prints (plaid & floral), the colors, & the way it seems to go with everything I've purchased for fall.  I ended up wearing this as my travel outfit back to the states last Thursday afternoon...

Sea, Salt, & Sun

This post is a little late this morning, I'm aware...internet problems have plagued my office for two days now.  I think this may be the last time you see my barelegged for 2013 & what better way to go out than with a beach themed outfit...

Endless Summer

I'm actually intrigued by the yo-yo temperatures we've been encountering the past few weeks.  I've been greeted with warm temperatures some mornings & frigid temperatures the next, making selecting what to wear that much more unpredictable.  I'm too excited to write about what I'm wearing today, we leave for the Midwest this afternoon for the weekend!!!!

Inspiration: A Pink State of Mind

The fall runways were filled with various shades of pink, but perhaps the most common shade of pink hailed from the pastel family.  I've had some pink-spiration on my desktop for far too long, so without further adieu, here's some images to tide you over until you find the perfect, pastel pink jacket...

The Sophisticated Sweatshirt

I cannot accurately describe how pleased I am that sweatshirts are still 'in' .  I'm a sweatshirt & jeans girl at heart, especially when the sweatshirt is embellished & can be paired with heels ;)
