What November Feels Like...

It seems fitting to post this outfit on the final day of November.  November was filled with up & down temperatures, more warm than cold, & plenty of layers.  I loved the idea of this outfit, worn to travel to Buffalo, NY before out anniversary getaway at the beginning of the month.  It lasted through rain, wind, & a chilly evening...

Cozy in Chicago (1)

I wore this in Chicago on day one.  It proved to be the perfect outfit for our crack-of-dawn flight & all day wandering around.  This vest is the best, it's so warm & cozy while still remaining stylish...

Photo Friday: Baby Moon Weekend Getaway

Most people jet off to somewhere warm & tropical on their baby moon.  However, I couldn't resist an opportunity to go back to my favorite city & just reflect on everything that's going on in life right now.  I turn 30 in just over a month & a month after that, our little girl will be here! It's insane how much has happened in the 6 years since I moved from Chicago to Canada & I couldn't be more grateful...
