Since adopting Klaus I'm finding myself wearing jeans more and more. One reason being it's so much easier to just throw on a pair and a shirt when I need to run out the door to take him outside or take him on a walk. Another reason - those little claws are shaaaarp. I'm not ready to risk that little guy accidentally putting a hole in one of my favorite dresses just yet. Other than those reasons and blaming my jean wearing ways on the dog, I'm just obsessed with this jean vest. I'm not quite sure how to wear it with a skirt or dress yet, nothing seems to look right. Sooo... variations of this outfit have been seeing a lot of wear around here. On any given day during the last few weeks I could have probably been seen around in a striped shirt, my jean vest and jeans. I'd normally call that a style rut but I actually dig it.

That picture of my shoes, look how much it looks like fall in the background! I can't wait for it to look like this soon. The cemetery is seriously one of the prettiest places ever in the fall. I actually have a few I've been meaning to visit but putting off until the leaves all change colors first. Seems kind of crazy that some leaves are already beginning to fall off the trees. I want to savor every second of fall this year (and always!) I love fall but I guess I should finish enjoying summer first. It's not quite over yet in Ohio. We're still getting random super hot days. I think I need to finish off Summer with one last day spent at the beach reading!

Hope you have a fabulous Tuesday!

  4. Love love love this outfit! Simple, but really very cool! I'm getting used to wearing jeans as well lately. I used to be a dress-only kind of gal, but now that I'm moved out of my parent's house, I find it's way easier to throw on some jeans (because you KNOW I'm in jammies if I'm in the house) than actually put on a dress and tights and the whole shebang.
