it's a rainy sunday here in pittsburgh, and it's the perfect day to lounge around in comfy clothes and just relax. this weekend has been a great one, with equal parts of being productive and having fun. i found out on wednesday that i got a full time job (yay!) in dc (double yay!) and will be starting in january, after graduation and the holidays are over. i honestly couldn't be more excited and happy about everything going on in my life right now.
i also chopped a few inches of my hair off last week! i needed a small change and for me that means doing something different with my hair. i'm trying not to dye it anymore (i've had so many horror stories experimenting with at home kits) and i'm focusing more on keeping it healthy. it always feels so much better after a fresh haircut.
change is good and there's so many exciting changes happening in my life right now. in the next two months i'll be graduating from college, moving to maryland, and starting a new job. it's crazy and hectic and hard to believe, but i truly can't wait. i have so much to be looking forward to.
while out and about in the adorable little neighborhood of squirrel hill, i found this awesome mural wall with the initials "SQH" on it and i couldn't help but stop and snap some pics. this is a typical casual fall outfit. piling on a few different layers to stay warm and wearing my favorite army jacket. i get asked every time i wear it if i bedazzled it myself and i wish i could say yes (it's very tempting, i wish i was that creative) but i sadly say that i bought it like this. i love how the jewels give this more masculine piece some girly flare.
also, side note: drop whatever you're doing and head to the nearest goodwill and stock up on cozy, oversized grandpa sweaters right now. you will not regret it, i promise you. get some plain colors and some crazy patterns and call it a day. they are the perfect winter wardrobe staple. you can wear them over a dress, with jeans, with a cute skirt, etc. the options are endless! okay, yes i have a slight obsession, but i think everyone else should too!!
what are your favorite pieces to layer in the fall? i'd love some new ideas!
