Happy new year! Yes, I know I'm a little late. Don't judge.
I've been having the hardest time coming up with a list of things I want to accomplish in 2019. 2018 was a good year for me - I landed my first post-grad job in my field (in my dream role), we moved into a 2 bedroom apartment and bought a couch that wasn't from IKEA(!!), and overall I was happier. It was without a doubt my first real year of "adulting". I know that 2019 is totally going to top last year, and I'm thinking that I just want to go with the flow instead of compiling a list of generic resolutions. 
I took a trip down memory lane by reading my journal and blog posts of past year's goals, and noticed I had a lot of repeats year after year. I also realized after I write the blog post/journal entry I never look back at it during the year! How can I work towards goals if I don't even remember what the goals are? *facepalm* So yeah, I'm leaning towards this year being a free-for-all.
I'll put my energy towards being more spontaneous and maybe making short-term goals instead. Who knows what this year has in store! 

So, cheers to a new year. Let's make it a great one.

I've been loving plaid this season. In years past I never really got into it as it looked quite dated. Now that it's come back in style (and in a big way) I think it looks quite sophisticated! You all know I love my neural tones, and this look is right up my alley. For cooler weather I might pop on a pair of tights to make myself extra cozy. 

What's a trend you didn't used to wear, but love now?

Tis the season for pumpkin spiced everything - including fashion. I picked up this burnt orange jumpsuit a few months ago from Shein and it worked for the summer, and now it's even better for the fall. If I wear this to a pumpkin patch, will it be too much? Ha! 

I layered on a Uniqlo Heattech turtleneck under the jumpsuit for added warmth because fall in Chicago gets pretty darn cold. It was around 40ยบ out when I shot this look, and with a jacket I was pretty warm. I went super matchy-matchy with this look and paired my go-to black boots for some height, and non-prescription tortoiseshell glasses to play off the buttons. Gold is still my metal of choice at the moment, so a new pair of thick gold hoops and a crescent necklace pulled together my accessories.

Okay, now that this post is finished I'm going back to eating my pumpkin muffins...
