Chambray All Day

October’s been a serious season wake-up call for me. In Arizona, it’s still sunny and hot, but here in Des Moines, there’s this thing called a REAL Fall {complete with crunchy leaves and cool mornings}.

I have to say, the weather here is perfection. Jeans, booties and a light sweater have been my go to #ootd recently, and I am certainly not complaining about this transitional weather.

Unfortunately, it’s getting to the point where shorts are almost out of the picture, so I had to say one last goodbye to my favorite chambray shorties from Abercrombie and Fitch. You guys may have noticed that half of my closet seems to be A&F, which is probs raising some eyebrows. I know what you’re thinking: “Abercrombie? The brand I lusted after in middle school for its preppy logo’d-out polos?” Nope, THAT brand you’re thinking of has undergone a HUGE makeover. Now when you think of the brand, think contemporary cool. More Zara and less Aeropostale. Plus, everything fits me impeccably, which is quite surprising considering the brand’s history of size exclusion. But their dresses hug me just right and their super stretch jeggings are a dream.

Also, you’ll probs see me sporting this Lucky Brand sweater almost too much — that’s when you know you’re in a healthy relationship with your wardrobe – right?!

So for those of you in the desert, please soak up the sunshine for me while I’m over here getting pale. OK I never really get pale, but not as tan as I could be.
