Every other afternoon (sometimes more), I like to get out of the house and head to a local coffee shop to spend a few hours working away from my desk and apartment. One of my favorite local places is Aromas Bliss in downtown Omaha. The coffee is great, and the atmosphere is very conducive to working, studying, etc. I spent an afternoon at Aromas earlier this week with Liz, and even though our plans to sit outside to work were thwarted by the chilly wind, I’m still glad I got “bundled up” (in fall terms) with a plaid shirt, Chelsea boots and a felted wool hat.

Over the weekend, the temps were just right to bust out my favorite boyfriend jeans. While they’re probably not winners with the boys, I happen to like the slouchy, casual vibe they give off — especially on low-key weekends. Add to that a lightweight, striped top and my go-to jacket as of late, and I’m out the door to run errands and catch up with friends.
P.S. How do you like my berry lip in today’s post? I’m really digging a darker lip for the cooler weather; find out more here.
I’m curious: Do you like wearing slouchy boyfriend jeans? Where’s your favorite place to buy them?

Friday is officially here! This week has been a long one for some reason, and I’m looking forward to some downtime this weekend (and maybe a fall closet/beauty organization session). Did I mention it’s only going to be 57 degrees here today? I’m in heaven.
I love this time of year because I can get away with wearing jeans and a short-sleeved top that’s not just a cotton T-shirt. I picked this H&M top up during my recent trip to Kansas City, and it’s made out of this heavy, almost neoprene-like material. I had to go monotone with it and pair it with gray jeans (with a pop of mustard, the color that makes its way into my wardrobe every fall).

There’s nothing I love more than fall weather that hits early. We’ve really been lucky here in Omaha, as a couple of days last week and this week have been in the 60s. When the weather dipped below 70, I took the opportunity to slip into jeans (duh) and don a wool fedora. I also had to wear this cool, vintage jacket I found recently; initially I wasn’t going to get it, but these colors screamed “autumn” to me — and the rest is history!

It never fails: When fall rolls around, my outfits become a bit edgier. I’ve had this spiked-shoulder top from Forever 21 in my closet for more than a year, unsure of how to wear it without looking too rough. I think using it as a vest is perfect. Once again, these Target shorts have proved more versatile than I ever thought, even pairing well with edgier pieces in my wardrobe.
So how was your weekend? For me, it was one of those perfect weekends: ideal weather, no set plans. New (free) patio furniture, movies galore, a new restaurant. All in all, it was a good weekend.
