Cutest Corduroy Jumper for Fall

You guys!! I can't believe this outfit was never posted. I seriously thought I shared this with you all weeks ago, and am just now realizing it's been in my drafts this entire time. What in the world has gotten in to me?! I need to get better about my posting schedule.. I'm working on it :)

Anyways, to the outfit details! I'm loving that we are finally getting that warm fall welcome we've all been waiting for. I just changed over my closet to house more sweaters and denim goodies and to pack away those sundresses for a few months. Recently, I picked up the most adorable corduroy jumper from Clad & Cloth. It was a total guessing game on if I'd actually like it once it arrived, but you guys, I love it! It's such a great fit and is super comfy for battling this in between season weather. I went with size M to make sure it wasn't too tight and would fit well with sweaters underneath.

An Indian Summer

Hello first day of fall and hello 90* weather (...said every Chicagoan everywhere)! I was just at the Bears final preseason game a few short weeks ago freezing my booty off from the windy and cooler temps. I'm going to go with the idea that we're totally experience an Indian Summer now or that winter is going to be absolutely awful.

I actually picked up this dress from Urban Outfitters not too long ago. I knew I would be celebrating a friend's bachelorette party in Florida in September and wanted to have a little sundress to wear. Unfortunately, Hurricane Irma came roaring through the weekend we had our plans, and we had to cancel our trip for obvious safety reasons. So, meeting Maya for a Sunday coffee chat with hot and humid weather seemed like the better option to pull this number out ๐Ÿ˜Š

Help, I'm in a Rut

I'm in a rut.

I was going to come on here and tell you allll about my super cute corduroy jumper I've been wearing this season, but instead, knew that I literally didn't know what else to say about it. I could talk about the weather for days and how to style the look, but I'm not a meteorologist, and nine out of ten times I like to actually add a little more depth to my posts, ya know?

We all have our ups and downs and ins and outs, but I can't seem to get out of whatever hole I'm currently in. Unfortunately, it's translating to a few areas of my life, but let's try and focus on one lane first ๐Ÿ˜Š

Soaking Up Summer

 I’m sharing MiO in my life as part of a sponsored series for Socialstars™

It’s hard to believe we’re just over a month away from the actual last day of summer, September 22nd. I’m already dreading summer Fridays coming to a close at work post Labor Day, but in the meantime, I’m doing my best to make the most out of this Chicago season. Just because summer technically ends, doesn’t mean those happy hours and girl’s get togethers have to stop!

I’m actually headed out of town soon for a quick weekend trip to Florida for a bestie’s bachelorette party! I haven’t seen my dear friend in several months, so I’m even more excited to finally be in the same room as her and for all of us to enjoy the beach for a few days. See? Even though summer is ending.. I’m still headed to a beach :)

The Facial You Need to Try (for Free!)

I'm not one to get facials often.. but when I do, I need to make sure it counts. I've been trying to minimize the amount of makeup I use on a day-to-day basis, especially during the hot summer months. Let's face it - I really don't need all that eye shadow and extra bronzer! My skin is naturally prone to breakouts and seems to be a mix of combination/oily, so anything to "get it right and get it tight" is a winner in my book.

Ok, ok.. so want to know my secret weapon?
