Yesterday's post was the perfect segue into today's post. There I was complaining about our last 82 degree day, about shorter days, and potentially 6 months ahead of cold weather. But today, let's focus on all the GOOD things about fall. Look behind me! I just love the colors of fall and I love living in a city that actually experiences fall. Our neighborhood is saturated with fall colors; these trees behind me are just a teeny piece of it.

And hello, blanket scarf weather! You would think with as many blanket scarves that I see in my Instagram feed that I would have an aversion to them by now. Granted, I'm not rushing out to add more to my collection, this one and my other one here are good enough for right now. They're perfect actually.

Scarf: H&M (option, budget option) | Top: Frenchi (option)  | Bracelet: Express | Bottoms: Express (option) | Booties: Vince Camuto (option, optionlower heel option)

I wore this over the weekend for family pictures! My brother-in-law is moving to LA over the next week or so, and since we knew opportunities for all the kids to be in the same city at the same time were going to dwindle as a result, we figured it was best to take a family photo before his big move. My sister in law had asked me to pick a color palette that we should all dress to, and well, this scarf basically sums up all the colors I picked - olive, burgundy, and mushroom. I couldn't decide which color to wear, so I figured I would just wear all of them!

Goodbye, sunshine

If you follow me on Instagram, you already know that I picked up this sweater during the Columbus Day sales. This sweater has everything I like - stripes, elbow patches, button detailing. Love, love love. I had put together some outfit inspirations on Polyvore, which is what ended up getting posted to Instagram here:

Well, the sweater arrived a couple of weeks ago, and I've been itching to wear it. It's just as soft and cozy as I was hoping it would be! I ended up switching the plaid scarf for this leopard one, and I must say, this is the perfect running-around-in-the-fall outfit.

I don't know about you guys, but over here, it hit 82 degrees on Sunday. 82! I think this was nature's way of saying - oh hey, enjoy this beautiful day because you won't feel this again for about 6 months. Not to mention that we are "falling back" this weekend, too, which just means goodbye, sunshine. Wow, sorry to turn into Debbie Downer over here! How about we all just grab our pumpkin spice lattes, throw on our favorite blanket scarves, and make Smores by the fire?

I don't know why, and you'll probably think I'm crazy, but for whatever reason, I have a really hard time just wearing my hair down and straight. I feel like it's so heavy so it just hangs and looks flat. But then I see so many other people who wear it this way and I'm envious, so, why don't/can't I wear my hair like this more? I didn't realize how long it's been getting until I took these photos, either. Probably because I'm usually curling it or wearing it up!

It's been a pretty hectic last couple of weeks. Actually, it's been a crazy October, to say the least. It felt really good to be able to take legit blog photos this weekend. Last week, I was forced (because I was sick last weekend) to only post 3 times last week, and even still all 3 posts were pre-written, in that they were outfits I had worn well in advance. Although it was nice to have extra time back in my life, I felt pretty disconnected from the blogging world!

I originally started this blog as my OOTD documentary on steroids, so to speak. I was taking selfies every morning of everything I wore, and then I graduated from taking photos on my phone to taking photos on a real camera. And then all of a sudden, it went from taking photos every morning before work to taking photos in advance on the weekend. So this past week when I was just "living life" without proper photos of my outfits - I felt lost! Not sure what my life has come to, but I'll say that I'm not quite done sharing my outfits with you, so I hope you're not quite done looking at them yet. :)

Thanks for sticking with me!
