The Whole Love

September has been a very sweet month and I can't believe it's already almost over. It has definitely had its chaotic moments, but with Scott by my side I've been able to get through everything I've worried/been stressed about with ease. He is truly my other half, the more peaceful half that always knows what to say and can see beyond all of the chaos that is going on. To be quite honest, if it wasn't for Scott, my blog would not be possible. We're a team in this, and I'm so thankful to have him in my life.

I know I'm a very lucky lady because Scott likes to go shopping with me (ok, maybe not all of the time, but for the most part). Last week we put on our brave faces and went down to Last Chance to see if we could score some amazing deals. Going into the store we both knew we wanted to find a pair of shoes for Scott (we did in the end), but somehow I got sidetracked and ended up in the women's section (more than once).

The results of my wandering was this sweet skirt. I've really been wanting to add more skirts to my wardrobe (they seem so versatile), so when I spotted this one with a perfect length and pretty autumn floral pattern, I knew I couldn't pass it up (that and because it was a mere $5).

I'm still pretty obsessed with my Jersy boots. Next to scarves, boots are my favorite fall accessory, and even though it's still a little warm out to wear boots, I still can't pass up a chance to pair them with a pretty skirt. I'm loving the riding boot style, and truly think every woman could use a great pair of riding boots in their wardrobe. I like how these have a little extra spunk to them, with the button over flap and zipper.

Today I have schoolwork to finish up, and also have my in-person class to attend later in the day. I'm definitely going to need some coffee (thinking some hot french press), and also some more time to listen to the new Wilco album, The Whole Love. I've only had a small listen so far (Scott bought it on vinyl), but I'm already obsessed.
