I recently picked up this cutout choker sweater dress in grey and it’s the perfect go-to for the season.  It’s cozy with an interesting neckline and the short hemline makes it perfect to pair with over-the-knee boots.

Hi everyone!  I’m sorry I have been so M.I.A. here on the blog but we’ve had a lot going on recently with a sick kiddo (who thankfully is doing much better), a stream of out-of-town visitors and gearing up to host Thanksgiving.  Luckily, this nice weather has been giving us a chance to get outside and enjoy some fresh air, play in the park and finally rake up all of our leaves.  We had a total of 16 giant bags of leaves from just our front yard!  Yeesh.

With this nice weather I have been loving that I don’t have to wear tights just yet!  Don’t get me wrong I love tights but since I dress up at the office and typically wear dresses and skirts to work, I feel like I live most of the fall, winter and even some spring months in tights.  So it’s nice not to be forced into them with the delayed onset of cold weather here in Denver.

My trusty pleated midi skirt has been on frequent rotation this fall and I like to pair it with bare legs and pumps or pointed flats.  I’ll mix in boots (and tights) as it continues to get colder.  I’ve been donning pleats since I went to Catholic school, and I love that they’re really back in style now that I’m an adult.

I thought sharing little tidbits about my life lately, things I like, do, want, etc. might be a fun way for you guys to get to know me a little better. So here goes:

Family Photos

We recently had some family photos taken and I’m obsessed with how they turned out.  We used a local photographer Libby Felche who is so nice, it made taking pictures with a sleepy 1-year-old easy.

We had a weekend getaway to the mountains and it was so nice to get out of the city and just relax with my boys.  We slept in, went hiking, and went for a drive to take in the changing leaves.

I recently picked up THE prettiest top on sale at J.Crew.  I live for summer and love to pair pretty tops with distressed denim jean shorts.  It’s my go-to combination for easy, chic outfits.

Baby Boy’s First Birthday Party

I recently started reading the 5 Love Languages and although I’m not very far into the book, I’m wondering if there is a “Making A Big Deal Out of Milestones, Events and Parties” love language?!  Because if so, that’s me to a T.  I live to celebrate the special occasions in life… baby showers, birthday parties, bachelorette parties… sign me up!  I will pin ideas, craft decorations, and be the first one there.

Carter’s first birthday party was no exception, and actually my inner party-planner took over and relished in the experience.

I couldn’t be happier that summer is fi-na-lly here!  I live for warm weather and as you might have noticed gravitate towards wearing dresses, tank tops, skirts and sandals.  I love not having to grab a coat and pile on a scarf, hat and gloves.  It’s so nice to unbundle for the season.

A Dress Over Jeans

The trend of styling a dress over jeans is perfect for days when you just can’t seem to figure out what to wear to be comfortable in the in-between spring temperatures.  I’m always cold and wearing basic skinny jeans under this printed off-the-shoulder dress proved just about perfect to keep me warm while out and about.
