GOOD GIRL GONE PLAID...

I FEEL LIKE A SHAWL IS NOTHING MORE THAN A SOCIALLY ACCEPTABLE BLANKET THAT WE'RE ABLE TO WEAR OUT IN PUBLIC. I MEAN- I'M NOT COMPLAINING, CLEARLY I BOUGHT INTO ONE THE COZIEST OF TRENDS OUT THERE. THE FACT THAT IT'S PLAID, THAT WAS JUST AN ADDED BONUS :)

I CAME, I SAW, I CONQUERED.

WHILE DOING SOME SHOPPING IN CHICAGO LAST MONTH, ZARA HAPPENED. I COULD SERIOUSLY SPEND HOURS IN THAT STORE, AND TRUST ME- I DID!! I CAME, I SAW, I CONQUERED. HA! I ACROSS SOME PRETTY AMAZING KEY PIECES THAT HAVE ME PRETTY EXCITED TO ADD TO MY FALL WARDROBE! WHEN DRESSING FOR ANY SEASON, I TEND TO GRAVITATE TO SEASONALLY APPROPRIATE COLORS. MY OUTFIT BELOW IS A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF WHAT I MEAN. NOTICE THE BURNT OLIVE AND RUSTY ORANGE TONES, SIMILAR TO THE COLORS OF THE CHANGING LEAVES. THEN I USE NEUTRAL TONES SUCH AS BLACK, WHITE, AND GREY TO BALANCE OUT THE BOLD COLORS. WHEN PURCHASING A JACKET OR COAT THIS SEASON, CONSIDERING ONE THAT'S A NEUTRAL COLOR IS ALWAYS A SMART INVESTMENT BECAUSE THE COLOR WILL NEVER CLASH WITH ANYTHING ELSE IN YOUR CLOSET!

FREE FALL-ING.

LIKE MILLIONS OF OTHER WOMEN OUT THERE, FALL IS BY FAR MY VERY FAVORITE SEASON TO SHOP FOR. WE ANXIOUSLY AWAIT ON THAT CHILL IN THE AIR TO ARRIVE SO WE CAN JUSTIFY WEARING THOSE FALL CLOTHES WE SECRETLY STARTED PURCHASING IN AUGUST.  I WONDER THOUGH, WHAT IS IT ABOUT THIS TIME OF YEAR THAT DRAWS SO MANY OF US IN? IT'S KINDA INTERESTING IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT. I MEAN FALL FASHION IS THE MOST PREDICTABLE OF ALL OF THE SEASONS, YET YEAR AFTER YEAR IT EARNS THE MOST ANTICIPATION AND UTTER EXCITEMENT! FOR ME, THE MAGIC OF FALL FASHION IS ALL ABOUT THE LAYERING! AFTER ALL, MY VERY FAVORITE THING TO BUY IN THE WHOLE WORLD IS A NEW JACKET!

ARCHITECTURE IN CHICAGO

WHILE CASEY AND I WERE PLANNING OUR TRIP TO CHICAGO, WE RECEIVED COUNTLESS  RECOMMENDATIONS TO TAKE THE ARCHITECTURAL RIVER CRUISE. WE'RE SO GLAD WE FOLLOWED THEIR ADVICE! IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL, SUNNY DAY AND WE HAD A FRONT ROW SEAT TO VIEW SOME OF THE CITY'S BEST ARCHITECTURE. IT'S ALSO A GREAT EXCUSE TO TAKE A BREAK FROM ALL THE WALKING A BIG CITY REQUIRES! I HOPE YOU ENJOY THESE PHOTO'S THAT I WAS ABLE TO CAPTURE DURING THE TOUR! XO
