Fresh Air

A day filled with fresh air & spending more time outdoors than in merits mixed print attire for just that.  I kept the color palette rather simple, using black as a forerunner in every piece...

Follow the Sun

Golden hour, after work last week.  I love the off-the-shoulder blouse that coincides with sunny September evenings.  It's like wearing nothing, but still provides the perfect amount of coverage for office wear.  An all black outfit, so void of detail without the addition of these bow sandals to tip the scale back to even...

Photo Friday: Main Level Happenings

Main level happenings around my house this past week.  No one should allow me into Target or Chapters during the fall- I can't be held accountable for the aftermath.  Nothing much on the agenda for the weekends now that football is back in action, just the normal hustle to get things done around the house before 1pm Sunday...

A mix of fall/halloween decor
New accessories from F21, of course...
Added a few extra candles to the island
CHFA trade show goodies/samples
New Bears stocking cap gifted by a co-worker
This was in my mailbox last Friday afternoon...
Cold weather = pumpkin ale drinking
These rings have a bit of a western vibe, perfect for fall...

Happy Weekend!

Sweater Season

First sweater spotting this September.  As usual, I tend to stockpile sweaters when they first hit stores in August.  The newest additions to my vast collection are from my favorite sweater shopping spot, Zara of course...

Safe + Sound

An easy look from last week- anything that involves black & white with a pop of color I deem as the safety net of outfits.  Hope you aren't sick of these sandals yet, they'll be back a few more times before they're forced into hibernation until spring...

In Tiers

Literally.  This tiered skirt has been featured a few times on instagram, but not once on the blog.  It's an easy piece with a paisley print that seems to go with more fall pieces than summer ones. Topped it off with a burgundy fedora & off to work I went...

Photo Friday: Fall is in the Air

Fall is definitely in the air, which can only mean easy mid-September attire is back.  Along with it comes pumpkin scented/flavored everything, homemade chili, wet weather, changing leaves, red wine, sweaters purchased in bulk, & the return of football Sunday's....

Off the Shoulder

This blouse (as first seen in yesterday's post here), has been a life saver for balmy, summer days.  It provides just enough coverage, yet allows for an appropriate amount of skin to show during daylight hours.  I paired it with these tropical print shorts & some croc printed leather for an easy, yet polished outfit...
