The More the Merrier

I can’t believe it is already Thursday! Sheesh! It is starting to cool down and stay cool, so that means I need to switch my closets… Ugh, it is an all day affair.. I am going to a bonfire this weekend, so I need to dig out my flannels and vests, so I might as well switch my closets. I am totally obsessed with vests! I may or may not own like 15 “puffy” vests… Oops! But, I mean it is cold in Illinois from mid September until April most years, so y’all girl has to have her options! Obviously I need a few more 🙂 The more puffy vests the merrier! I’m sure JD would disagree, but he doesn’t count! Hehe Below are a few that I am craving!!

Pumpkin Patch

Hope you ladies had a great weekend!! The weather was beautiful here!! This time last year little Miss Libbey was only a week old, so I didn’t go to any fall festivals or pumpkin patches. I’ve decided that we are going to make up for it this year! We went to two pumpkin patches yesterday and I plan on going to more! There a few festivals I plan on attending as well! Love this time of year! Libbey loved the pumpkin patches!! She is almost walking(has taken 12 steps at once!), so we held her hand and let her go crazy! She was picking out pumpkins, watching other kids, looooved the animals, and attempted to eat kettle corn! So much fun!!

Oh my goodness, this top from Caralase is probably one of the most comfortable things I own! I ordered it from GroopDealz a few weeks ago! Obsessed! It can be worn in so many ways! I’ll definitely be wearing it all fall and probably pair it with different scarves and long sweaters! I ordered the taupe and blush! Go get it!!!
Top: Caralase
Leggings: Gap. These are by far my fave pair of leggings! I think I have 3 pair!!

Sequin Anchor

Hola lovelies!!!
Hope you all had a great weekend!! Libbey and I enjoyed our weekend away with family, but are happy to get home with JD! Miss Libbey has her 9 months check up! I’m interested to see how much she has grown! She is crawling like crazy and eating more and more “people” food! She loved playing with all the little ones this past weekend! Below is what I wore on Thursday for our little road trip!

I wore this outfit shopping a couple of weeks ago and forgot to post it! Don’t look too close though.. My clothes are a little wrinkly and my face and hair are a mess!! I guess that shows that we had a successful shopping trip! I always dress in layers when I shop because stores are soooo cold, but then when I step outside I’m warm… I’m hard to please! Haha A denim jacket is a stable in my wardrobe! I use it all year round, but I really use it at night in the summer!! I love the dark blue!! These navy pants are so comfortable and fun!! They are a pant that you can definitely dress up or down! It was a little chilly a couple of weeks ago, so I wore a long sleeve shirt with them, but I can’t wait to mix and match them with something else!!
Denim Jacket: Gap(similar)
Necklace: Francesca’s, not online, but this one is cute and on sale!
Belt: Target
Sandals: Von Maur(old), but love these!!

Messy Hair Don’t Care

You guys… This wind is out of control! My mop is all over the place in these pictures! I thought I would solve that problem by pulling it up, but clearly I was wrong!
My outfit is super comfy and casual! I’m loving my boyfriend capris from the Gap if you haven’t noticed! They are just so comfortable and I love the color! I’m usually not a light washed denim person, but for some reason I’m obsessed with these! My tee is from from Target from the litte girls’ section, on sale for $5!! Holllllaaaaa!!!! But seriously, I thought it was so cute! Go get it now!!!!
