Welcome back from the weekend! How was it? On top of helping friends out with their parents’ 30th anniversary party, mine was fairly productive — I got my office reorganized and went through my beauty products to swap out summery shades for autumn-appropriate ones.
Speaking of autumn … we’ve had quite the blast from the past — summer, that is — here in Omaha. It’s been hot and humid, and all I want is cool weather. I’ve had to compromise by choosing some lightweight items in darker colors and patterns. These leopard pants are going to get some serious wear this fall; once the weather cools down, I want to pair them with stripes, a leather jacket and ankle boots.
Bring it on, Monday!

Last weekend Liz was taking some anniversary photos for our friends’ parents’ 30th anniversary. I took advantage of the evening sunlight to act as a test model so she could get the camera settings right pre-photo shoot (the perks of being besties with a photographer).
I love weekends that call for casual wear — especially sweatshirts. This one I found at Kohl’s for $20, and the mix of texture really helps elevate it beyond your average sweatshirt.
Speaking of weekends … happy Friday!

Personal style is just that: personal. Certain prints speak to some, while others are drawn to other prints. This is one of those prints that I love and have had my eye on since the Peter Som for Kohl’s collection debuted earlier this summer. I snatched the jacket up on super clearance ($15!), and I am so glad I did. I think the pineapples are super cute and very summer-esque, but the silhouette — a bomber jacket — and the color palette is perfect for fall.
P.S. Who else is glued to the TV this week? I love fall TV premiere week! What shows (new and old) are you watching and DVRing?

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.

Well, Labor Day weekend has come and gone in a flash — as is usually the case with three-day weekends. How was yours? I spent Saturday with Liz going Target-hopping as we searched the local stores for a particular pair of sweatpants in a certain size. Talk about dedication. We ended up going to 13 Targets over the past five days. Other than obsessively checking Target, though, I did spend the weekend catching up with friends over brunch, barbecuing, swimming, reading — basically trying to soak up as much summer as possible before the real craving for fall begins.
Oh, wait. It already has.
This weekend was all about comfort while still looking like I cared about how I stepped out of the apartment, so for me, this means a good button-up blouse. My collection is quite extensive, and I usually put these on hold until the cooler months kick in. But I couldn’t wait, so I paired mine with the only denim shorts I wore all summer and a comfortable pair of metallic loafers.
