Abandoned Expression

I know I've said it before, but I'm saying it again, fall has finally come to Phoenix. It was in the 60's this evening and the wind was blowing cool breezes through the city. A cardigan was just not enough to keep me warm. I don't entirely want to get my hopes up, but I hope the cool weather sticks around now. I'm so ready for some good layering!

This week has just seem to wiz right by. Scott and I had such a nice anniversary (we even met a sweet blog reader while at Cibo for our dinner date!), and I'm so excited to continue our celebration today and tomorrow for Scott's birthday. We're taking Scott's little sister out to the State Fair today and they're going to ride the rides (I get sick). I'm pretty sure some kind of fair food will be eaten as well!

Lately I've been living in these Frye boots. I got them this summer in a small town outside of Vail, Colorado. I had always wanted a pair, so I decided it was finally time make the plunge and just get them. I have a feeling they're going to last forever!

This abandoned, miss-matched painted mill is one my favorite buildings in Mesa! It has so much charm to it!

Outfit details:
Jean jacket: Levi's
Blouse: Levi's
Bracelets: Kate Spade and vintage
Jeans: Levi's
Melissa button boots: Frye

Today I still have quite a bit of work to catch up on, and hope to be very productive before we leave for the fair later this evening. I will probably have a cup (or two) of Trader Joe's pumpkin spice coffee, and might listen to Stay Up, Go Dancing by Death Cab for Cutie on repeat.

What are you up to today? Is it chilly where you live? What's your favorite hot beverage? I'm in the mood to try something new!
