AMAZING Anthro Sweater.

My little sis just got a job! She is working at Anthropology! Yay for her- and for discounts! This sweater is perfect for fall and winter! It looks amazing with some brown boots for an effortless, cozy look! My husband and I were hanging out all weekend and enjoying the last of fall and I couldn’t resist posting about this PERFECT sweater!

Photos are taken by my husband in our yard! Sweater is from Anthropology, boots are from Francesca’s, pants are from New York and Company! And don’t forget a tank under this sweater- my nude one here is from target!

Leather Jacket.

The boots are out and in full swing! These are some of my favorite boots with one of my favorite leather jackets. It is a light pink color, but is very versatile because it is very neutral. The shirt under this jacket is AMAZINGLY soft and perfect for a cozy fall day! This look is perfect for weekend adventures and running about! And, you’ve GOTTA LOVE the colors of the fall leaves! ๐Ÿ™‚

Cheetah Print and Corn Stalks.

Ahh… The refreshing crisp smell of fall! I just can’t seem to take enough pictures to make this time of year last long enough! The natural world is so beautiful and refreshing- the colors, the sights, the smells! This fall, soft neutral pants are SO IN! I got these lovely taupe pants from Ann Taylor and couldn’t be happier about the purchase- comfy, fall friendly, and awesome with cheetah prints! I also adore how the shirt splits in the back- AND– it is made of the softest stuff ever!!!

My Fur Child.

Sometimes I feel bad that I am gone so much and not able to spend as much time with my puppy as I wish I could. My husband would tell you that he feels bad about it too. But as far as I know, most people would find me psychologically insane if I were to quit my job to become a stay-at-home-dog-mom… my secret dream job! ๐Ÿ˜‰ So this post is just about him- my furย child!

Fall Fest and the First of the Cold Weather.

Last weekend was the annual fall fest in Ashippun, Wisconsin. When this was going on last year, my husband and I were just getting settled in our first home and didn’t get around to making an appearance. This year, when we started seeing signs posted all over the quaint downtown (if it’s even big enough to be called that), we knew we HAD to go! We got our first drastic dose of cold and wet, but even a little rain couldn’t keep us away this year! Our first community event! We even met a local farmer who showed us how all of the vintage machinery works. So neat I had to share!

Ode to the Pumpkin Spice Latte.

Fall has officially fallen! The leaves are turning and there is NOTHING I crave more this time of year than a cozy cup of pumpkin spice AMAZINGNESS (yes, I made up a word for the sake of doing the pumpkin spice latte justice!). I think it’s safe to say that the “honeymoon” period of the school year is over and the true colors are shining brightly! As a teacher, this can take a toll on the sanity of your life from Monday to Friday. My husband and I decided it was time to spend some quality time just enjoying each others’ company, reading a book, and having some long needed bonding time. Where better to make this happen than starbucks with a pumpkin spice latte in hand!

Photos taken by my loving husband, as always! Nummy Pumpkin Spice Latte credit goes to Starbucks! That awesome watch that has a map on it is from etsy!

 

The PERFECT Blazer

Well I can’t believe it as I write this post, but it is the middle of August already… CRAZY! With the wedding and honeymoon in June and July, and now my new position at work, this summer has absolutely disappeared! And the weather seems to be constantly reminding us that fall is just around the corner. Ryley and I had some running around to do the other day, and I needed something that said “heyyy- it’s still summer- but yeah… i kinda do need a jacket.” This blazer is the absolute BEST purchase I have made in a longgg time! It is comfortable, classy, and greatttt quality! I know what you’re thinking- how could it get any better? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Well, it is also affordable and OH SO soo versatile!!! As you will see I have paired this with shorts and a textured tee for a casual look, but I soooo can’t wait to wear this with a dress and some heals, or with a nice pencil skirt for a more professional look! From errands to work to play- this blazer could NOT beeee more PERFECT!!! Yay!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh, and have I mentioned that these new white leather loafers are my new obsession- they go with EVERYTHING!

Okay, so this beyond believable blazer is from H&M and excellent quality. They are currently sold out, so the link is to a similar H&M blazer! Here is another similar blazer. The black and white tee is very old- just pick a comfy tee of any color to make this look work! This tribal tee from Forever 21 would work great!! Shorts are from Hollister- they are a destroyed, medium wash- similar here. The watch is from The Limited (old- similar here). The amazzzzing chandelier earrings are from Ann Taylor- here is a pair that is probably even more amazing than the pair I was wearing! Sunglasses are Kenneth Cole- see similar here. Annnd- those white loafers I am obsessed with are from Aldo here.

Mmmm… Forest Green

So this is my first fashion post! Hooray! ๐Ÿ™‚ This past weekend was one filled with nostalgia and smiles for me. Why, you might ask? My little sister was home, my mom and dad returned from their 2 week cruise that felt like forever, and the three of us girls went SHOPPING!!! Hence, the first fashion post was totally necessary to show off some of my great finds! These printed shorts are soooo in! They are great this summer with a textured tank, but more importantly, they look FANTASTIC with fall colors and cozy forest green blouses!

 

The shorts (not sold online) and blouse are from H&M. Purse (old- similar here in amazing blue!) ย is from Francescas. Shoes and mid finger rings (old- similar here from Express) are from Aldo. Watch is from The Limited (old- similar here at Aldo). Happy shopping ladies!

Thank you to my loving husband for taking the pics for me!
