A series of warm rainy days began on Monday. The day I was heading out of town to see family, friends, and to simply get away. I originally planned to leave early Monday morning, but took advantage of the AM rain, and slept in a little longer. I also decided to take advantage of the cool winds the rain brought…so I opted to get some wear out of one of the many cardigans that I own. Layering is my favorite part of fall, but with this Ga weather, you never know if its going to be too hot to layer; or so cold you need a coat. These booties are from Banana Republic last winter, and I adore the shade of grey; and the dark wood wedge. Speaking of wedge, I’m on the hunt for a suede mid-calf wedge bootie. So if anyone runs across one, please let me know ūüôā Well, I hope everyone is having an awesome week.

P.S. I’d like to give thanks to my Dad, who has become my go-to “photographer” when I need a quick pic or two.

Was in the mall finishing up finding birthday items, as I was doing here, and found a few items I wouldn’t mind having this season. The first I fell in love with was this velvet tee in Madewell. OH MY GOODNESS…it so much better in real life. Ooooh the simplicity of it. I am really digging the velvet, faux fur, cords, and leather of the season. But I just need to find the perfect pieces to incorporate. I also saw a nice faux fur piece from Aqua in Bloomingdale’s. They had just sold my size, so it was good to know I wasn’t going to have to make life decisions.

Have any of you purchased any pieces lately? I would love to hear about them. If you’re anything like me, I am too excited about the fact that I can now pull out my cardigans, blazers, sweaters etc. *exhales* Are you all ready for the season. I don’t think I am. My bestie disagrees, but we’ll just have to see ūüėČ

So, I had to go to court today for a speeding ticket. Not happy about it, but its life. So I had my Dad snap a picture or two before I left. Figured something productive should come out of today since  I had to miss work. I bought these high wasted slacks from Lane Bryant a few months back, and absolutely love them. I was very surprised to find something in there that actually fit! Everything is so ill proportioned there. Moving on. Decided to pair them with my favorite tee from Express, and my new cardi from Targert. I hope you all had a wonderful Monday!

I received a phone call for an invitation to an event at The Limited so my Dad was still snapping pics.
