This minimal fall outfit has been on repeat for me over the last few weeks. With the weather nearing 90 degrees throughout much of September, it was tough to switch from summer pastels to fall layers. I had found this skirt on final sale for less than $15 at the end of August, and it has been the perfect transition piece. The J.Crew tank is so soft and comfortable. Together, these items have been ideal for everything from running errands to road trip attire, to a casual dinner and stroll around the city.

Speaking of which, on the night we took these photos Arnie and I had just enjoyed dinner with my family before taking a walk by the river. This was one of those nights that taking in the city lights with a full belly and heart made me stop to think of how grateful I am for this life and so many good people in it.

Just look at the cityscape, would ya?

Happy Monday to all of you!

      Thank you, Catherine! These COACH Classics are really my favorite bags. The quality is amazing and the styles are timeless. I have this one in a cognac color and black. Unfortunately, they are not on the website anymore, but ebay is awesome for finding gently used versions!

  • With these below freezing temps, the heat in our apartment can’t keep up. That meant we all had to do some serious snuggling last night. Josie didn’t seem to mind one bit though 🤱🏻 She is a magnet to snuggles.

What are you guys going to stay warm during the polar vortex? I can’t wear enough layers! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Speaking of, I linked this down parka on my Poshmark. After our little one arrived, it became even more important to make room for only the essentials—which meant having only one parka (against my will). Great color and quality, per usual, from @eddiebauer for anyone in need! I linked my whole closet in my bio and on the blog to see more!
