Wearing: Wrap Me Up in Fall Layers
TGIF, ladies. This week felt like quite a long one. The days before Halloween always feel long when you're surrounded by children. While I love this time of year with all its creepy decor and scary movie marathons, my plans for this Halloween-eve weekend are subdued. Pajamas, a glass of wine, and AMC Fear Fest sound about right. What I'm really looking forward to this weekend is the promise of perfect fall temps. Time to watch the leaves turn (probably rake up a few) and go on a tour of all the dressed up Halloween houses. That slight chill in the air also makes it just right for throwing on fall layers.
The thing about the fall is that you just kind of have to deal with whatever the day is going to throw at you. In the morning you're scraping ice off your car windows and by the afternoon you're sweating. Finding great pieces to layer up is my fall mission. When I spied this wrap at American Eagle in my absolute favorite color, navy, I had to have it. To be honest, I thought a wrap was a little bit more "mature". You could call this a shawl after all. But once I threw it on, it was absolutely perfect. It's cozy without being stifling and goes with anything, from a sweater to a breezy tunic.
Even though this is a bundle-up, stay cozy, stay inside weekend, it doesn't mean it's a lazy weekend at all. One of my goals is to get some solid plans for Buttons and Blossoms. That means rifling through my closet for perfect fall-to-winter outfits and planning day trips to some towns. Stay tuned! Besides tidying up my online "house", I'll be puttering around my real house getting it to home status. In my mind I've set plans for a "reveal" around the holidays, though it won't be done (it'll probably never be done!). I guess it won't be a real wine-and-pjs weekend; maybe in the new year?
