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!

It’s finally starting to feel like fall in NWI, which means I can finally bring out my sweaters and boots. Fall in the Midwest is by far my favorite time of year – the weather is always perfect, the trees turn beautiful colors and everyone just seems to be unusually happy. Maybe it’s because of all of the pumpkin spice lattes people are consuming on a daily basis. Yes, I’m sure that’s it! Anything pumpkin flavored makes me pretty happy, at least!

On a side note, you may have noticed that I wear this necklace in every post. Sometimes I wear it on its own and sometimes tucked underneath statement necklaces or scarves, but one thing is for certain – I never take it off. I love how a delicate necklace looks when paired with a chunky sweater, plain tee or layered with other necklaces. It has two small discs with “G” and “J” engraved on them, which stand for my name (Gabrielle) and my boyfriend’s name (Jake). Jake is in the Marines, and unfortunately we haven’t seen or talked to each other much lately, so I like wearing something everyday that reminds me of him.
