Well I learned my lesson the other day. I realized I can’t win a battle against the wind, so I gave in and put my hair in a bun. I am still kicking myself for thinking chin-length hair was a good idea 3 years ago, but it’s finally growing out to a length where I can make a pretty decent top knot! The wind has brought in a cold front, and it seems like it’s here to stay for a couple months. But I don’t really mind! It just means more trips to Starbucks, sitting by the fireplace and an excuse cuddle up and watch movies all day long! Plus, my boyfriend will be home for a couple weeks in December, so I don’t really care what the weather does one way or another. As long as he is home I will be happy!

Fall in the Midwest is very temperamental. It snowed on Monday and dropped into the teens at night, but was 65 degrees and rainy today. At this point, I’d rather it just get cold and snow. (I’ll most likely wish I didn’t say this when it actually does snow again, which will probably be sometime this week!) The wind was ridiculous today, and I made the poor choice to wear my hair down today, so that’s why my face is not making an appearance in this post!

The weather did cooperate long enough to snap a couple pictures of my outfit today. We had strong storms and tornadoes all around us, but fortunately it cleared up just before the sun began to set. My friend and I had plans to go to the gym and make DIY projects this afternoon, but we only had time for lunch before we had to head home before the storm hit. So naturally I spent my afternoon scanning Pinterest for the perfect DIY projects for us to make next weekend, which I can’t wait to share on here!

Scalloped Skirt

I wear a lot of skirts during the week, and I’m always on the lookout for something different to mix up my outfits. I spotted this skirt while shopping over the weekend and knew it would be a perfect addition to my skirt collection. I’m not an edgy person in terms of fashion, so I really love how the soft scalloping balances out a leather jacket and a printed top.

I am totally in love with the sweatshirt and skirt trend, and I have been lusting over this sweatshirt ever since its first appearance at J.Crew a couple months ago. Because of Columbus Day, there were so many great sales this weekend, and I scored this sweatshirt for 50% off! And now that the temperature is dropping again, I will probably wear it nonstop (I may have already worn it twice since I purchased it on Saturday…shhh!)

So Long, Summer

The days of wearing a tee and mini skirt (without tights) are coming to a close. It was a gorgeous weekend, so I took advantage of the last of the warm weather while I ran some errands. This skirt transitions so well into fall, and I’m already planning a couple outfits to wear during the upcoming months!
