Fall is in the air! The leaves are beginning to change to beautiful hues of reds, oranges and yellows, and I am once again craving anything pumpkin flavored.

This is potentially the easiest Sunday outfit ever. I wore it to go apple and pumpkin picking at an orchard last weekend (one of my favorite fall activities.) I recently have been loving wearing these solid black running shoes to class with skinny jeans. They are so unbelievably comfortable and require no fuss. I am also wearing my first pair of Joe’s Jeans. I have honestly have never purchased a pair of jeans for over $40, but after my summer internship, I decided to treat myself to a high quality pair of denim. I haven’t regretted my splurge for a second because they are just that amazing.

I topped the look off with a linen baseball tee, a Yankees cap and a vintage COACH purse, via the back of my mom’s closet. This is a great fall look for weekend errands and when you just want to feel comfortable on the go. Switch out the sneakers for cool flats and a leather jacket to bring the look into nighttime.

Check back soon for some fall layers! I hope you had a great weekend!

SoCal Vacation

IMG_6130 IMG_6139 IMG_6148 IMG_6162 IMG_6164 IMG_6169 IMG_6182 IMG_6195 IMG_6203 IMG_6205 IMG_6212 IMG_6171

 At the end of the summer, I had the chance to take a vacation to Los Angeles, CA. I saved up, bought a plane ticket and then dreamed about California for the two months before I left. Prior to my trip, the furthest west I had ever traveled was to St. Louis (a shame, really). I couldn’t wait to see everything the west coast had to offer.

I was picked up at the LAX airport by my personal tour guide/chauffeur/boyfriend early in the morning. He spent the summer as a production assistant, and after just a few hours of making runs to prop rental and equipment stores with him, I learned it isn’t for the faint of heart. Luckily my arrival marked the end of his internship, and we were able to explore southern California.

These were a few of my favorite things:
We ate (a lot).  I was able to try some LA staples – freshly caught fish tacos, In-N-Out Burger, a smoothie garnished with bee pollen and dinner at The Grove Farmers Market.
We took a mini road trip to Laguna Beach, and I couldn’t stop taking pictures of the beautiful hills and cliffs overlooking the ocean.
Each shopping mall we went to was better than the last. How do you do it, California?!
I learned how to skateboard but not very well.
I swam in the Pacific (by swam, I mean I waded into the water, got crushed, flipped over and dragged across the ocean floor by the first wave that came towards me. I quickly realized this ain’t no Gulf Coast walk in the park.)

The palm trees, beaches and way of life were like nothing I had ever experienced before.  I still find myself  daydreaming about LA. I think it is good to have dreams about places or things, especially if they are motivating you to do your best work. “I want to work hard so I can treat myself to a vacation there again,” or “I want to work hard so I can live in a big city someday.” Keep dreaming those dreams, but don’t forget to actually take the actions needed to get yourself to where you want to be. It will pay off.

Wisco & Indy Summer in Photos

IMG_5072 IMG_5369 18 IMG_5428 IMG_5132 IMG_5181 IMG_5986.1 IMG_5442 IMG_5370 IMG_6105.1 IMG_6063 IMG_5560

I wanted to share some of my favorite photos from my summer (I am already missing it too much).  I spent a majority of my time working in Milwaukee, WI. It was so much fun trying different cuisine, being on my own and exploring a whole new city. Nothing beats a summer night, especially when it is spent at a rooftop restaurant in the middle of the city, laughing with new friends. My absolute favorite part about Milwaukee was my mile walk to the beach at Lake Michigan. I also went to a different festival each weekend, which was an absolute blast. As much fun as I had out-of-town this summer, nothing beats coming home. I spent a few days back in Indiana, laying by the pool, enjoying s’mores and stopping by the Indiana State Fair with my younger brother. Life is good in a flyover state.
