for the days ahead


Ain't that the truth!!! Those rainy dreary days here in Chicago in Oct-Dec also come with much colder temps. Often accompanied by high wind and bitter breezes. Let's see...those exact items are foretasted for the next few days here in Chicagoland. Le Sigh.

One of my favorite parts of these kind of days are the easy excuses for staying in, snuggling up and listening to the pitter patter against the windows. When I do go out it's actually kind of fun (sometimes), I love to stomp in puddles. I might be 5! Even more, since layering weather is still 'new' for this year it is still enjoyable! And I'm all over it! I love pops of color poking out of neutral sweaters. Mixing prints - striped sweaters and checked shirt, yes please! Scarfs are your best friend, they can be styled up so many different ways - ultimately changing the way an outfit can look!

How do you make it through the rainy Fall days?

    1. Unfortunately no, this one is one I am hoping to get! I have a light khaki Pendleton one - that I purchased last year. Hoping to nab a darker and slightly longer one on sale or for a steal! :)
