Looking Forward to Fall

I am LOVING this perfect weather we're having the past couple of days. Right around 72 degrees and overcast? Perfection in my eyes. I just want to be outside! It was so much more pleasant to be out with my students also when I wasn't drenched in sweat!
I am so excited that signs of fall are already showing. We saw geese flying in formation the other day and I said, "Yippee! They're flying south-that must mean cold weather is on it's way!" Some may think I'm crazy, but I live for cozy sweaters and layers and not sweating.
That's why I stole my hubby's sweater today...it was just chilly enough (or it could be the fact that I'm still sick) that it was perfect for a chunky knit with a short walk in the park. Can everyday be Saturday?



A few weeks ago I was going to bite the bullet and buy a necklace just like this on ModCloth for around 25 dollars (plus shipping). I couldn't do it though - mainly because I'm so cheap. A short time later I found this one at Charlotte Russe for 8 dollars! It probably isn't the same quality, but I love it just the same. It pays to be patient (and thrifty) I guess!









Here is me almost falling off the log into the disgusting water...I was scurred.







Duckies!









Hope you all had a relaxing Saturday! Lots of love :)
God Bless!

Philippians 4:11-13
Not that I was ever in need, for I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. For I can do everything through Christ,who gives me strength.



Wearing:
Necklace, shorts- Charlotte Russe
Sweater- Husband's
Shoes- Target
Bag- Vintage Coach

Oh my gosh, this outfit is so perfect! I would wear this day in and out... that top looks so comfy (your hubby has good taste!), and the necklace against it is so bold. There's nothing I don't like abut it! :D

Also, that 6th picture of you is super pretty... your hair, ahh! It's just so lovely and modelesque.

I'm totally agreeing with you on how perfect the weather has been. Even the occasional rain shower is okay as long as it keeps everything nice and cool. I've been outside pretty much all day today.

Thanks for the sweet comment! I love this post - that peter pan collar necklace is adorable! Also your shoes and the setting of the photos! So nice. Love seeing Philippians 4:11-13, by the way. It gave me some comfort; I'm stressed out recently - moving to Europe in less than 48 hours is so daunting and taking some comfort in that verse has made me feel a lot better.

Hope you're having a great day, beautiful!

Perfect Bible verse for me today, thanks so much :) And I love that necklace...it's got a really fun look since it's a play on the peter pan collar.

I love how these colors go together and you have a thing for oxfords and making them look great!
I love the Charlotte Russe necklace, in fact I am going on to their site and check it out.

Love this so much! I enjoy getting to steal Dork's shirts when the weather gets cooler. They're so snuggly and warm!

Really, fall and winter are my favorite fashion-wise. I love piling on the layers! (tights! scarves! boots!)

I love this outfit on you Katie! It's adorable and so different from your array of gorgeous vintage dresses (which I completely swoon over as well). There's nothing like a hubby's cozy sweater at times - especially in cool, rainy, overcast weather. I've been known to raid my hub's closet as well :) Have a gorgeous week lady! xo Marisa
