outfit inspiration + outerwear sale

The weekends have truly been a respite lately with our crazy schedules! Thursday and Friday nights for the next few months are all about football. This crazy girl gets dragged along for the ride. I guess she doesn’t seem to mind for now.

It has been so sweet to see her and Winston become so close. She’s communicating better and thinks he’s absolutely hilarious…and of course he totally digs that. She repeats what he says all the time {for better or worse} and follows him around like a puppy {literally and metaphorically}. Taking selfies on my phone…

Given the hectic schedules, I’m trying to be better about planning. Meal and outfit planning that is. I actually don’t like to do either. Some of my best outfits come together on a whim, but mornings are tight and it would be nice to know what’s coming to help get out the door a little more smoothly. So my routine is typically office a few days, workout wear at least 3 days {ideally more} and comfy casual the rest of time.

Today I wore this pleated midi with my favorite white collared button up. I say it’s my favorite because the fabric is the perfect blend – not too stiff but just enough umph for the collar to hold some height {“collars up” amiright?!}.

I just ordered this military style vest {similar here and here}. I love this look for fall because it has endless options. Check out this post on 10 ways to wear a cargo vest.
