What I’m Lovin’ Right Now

Another week, Gang! #1 below brings very timely and wise words for a Monday. And while I have a busy week ahead, I’m decidedly looking forward to changing things up a bit in an effort to create my own sunshine. I’m excited to meet the BF for happy hour drinks on what’s likely to be an otherwise uneventful Tuesday, instead of our usual gathering for a movie or hanging at my place while we watch Netflix over baked potatoes. And thanks to an awesome Groupon find (along with a 20% off discount), I’m trying out a new dance studio that just opened in my neck of the woods to shake up my workouts (and get my groove on!).

I’m finally starting to settle back into my routine after my recent trip to SF and it feels good. Here are a few other things adding to my sunshine. Here’s what I’m lovin’ right now…

  2. Keeping the art of handwriting alive…and in-style. |  Stationary of the Art Pencil Set
  3. Becoming your own Barista. | Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte
  4. What to do with that bag of potatoes before they spoil. | Baked Garlic Potato Slices
  5. The most ideal sweater I’ve seen (so far) to pair with leggings. | Double V-Neck Tunic Sweater
  6. Currently on my toes and perfect for fall. | Essie’s Bahama Mama
  7. Earrings suitable for everyday wear with a salute to the retro. | Sunburst Engraved Stud Earrings

Have a good week! x

Fall Uniform: Night Out On the Town

Dressing up for a night out on the town is tricky as the climate cools. You want to look sexy chic, but don’t want to freeze your booty off or ruin a cute dress by having to cover up and wear a heavy coat. I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve endured chilly temperatures in the name of fashion!

The look below came to me while experimenting on Polyvore.com. One of my favorite tricks when getting ready for a night out on the town during this time of year is to pair a dress with leggings and boots. You maintain great style AND added weather protection during those colder fall nights.

A sparkly dress paired with a blazer to keep warm works perfectly in my book and since the dress is quite “showy” I’d keep accessories very minimal and simplistic. Hoop earrings work best at drawing attention to your face, but not competing with the dress; and a small black clutch to hold your essentials adds the final touch for a polished look.

Here’s your fall uniform for a night out on the town with your best gals or that special guy  with link deets on where to buy (hey that rhymes!):
