September 3, 2014


It's finally September! I feel like I've been waiting for this beautiful month for ages now. For me, September always marks the beginning of a transitional state - new season, cooler weather, my fall wardrobe, lots of hot coffees and much more. After having 100+ degree days for the last five months, I'm completely ready to commit to fall. While I still can't put away all of my summer digs, I am willing to sweat it out for parts of my fall wardrobe. Phoenix friends, you know what I mean!  

Outfit details:
Old Navy vest
Flowy blouse c/o DownEast Basics 
Madewell necklace 
Jeans: Madewell
Seychelles Scoundrel booties

This short week has been zooming by! Scott has been super busy with grad school and I've been working on a few projects and looking forward to a couple of exciting things that are coming down the pipeline. I also had my post-surgery appointment today, and I'm happy to report that all is well! While it will take me a few weeks (maybe even a few months) to feel completely normal again, I am happy to know that I don't have to worry about my gallbladder rupturing (which was a huge concern pre-surgery). I'm also supposed to be trying out foods that I had to swear off over the years, like pasta sauces, spicy foods and even dairy, which my mom and Scott are stoked about. I've already had salsa (first time in YEARS), and spaghetti with marinara sauce is next on my list. It might sound silly, but for someone who has been on a strictly bland diet for 5 years now, this is HUGE! Now, who's going to go out to breakfast, lunch and dinner with me? I have lots of yummy food to catch up on! ;)

  1. Hurrah for fall! Here in VA the months of August and September seem to have switched. In other words, last month was mild and this month we can barely breathe with this oppressive humidity. BRING ON THE CHILLY BREEZES, SCARVES, AND PUMPKIN EVERYTHING!

  2. Oh, and I'm glad you're healing and able to try some tasty foods!

  3. I love the blouse with that vest, super cute!!

  4. Not silly at all, I was on a bland diet for years (sometimes still am) and it's so refreshing to be able to break away and enjoy food, all food, with friends & family. So glad you're feeling better & better! Plus, you look amazingly fab... love this outfit! <3

  5. yay for fall! i love your outfit, especially that blouse, its gorgeous!

    I think I just bought that same vest - it is SO cute and so versatile. You look awesome as usual!

  7. what is the lipstick you are wearing? love it!
