Worn on another cold Spring day. It was nice in the sun but pretty chilly otherwise! I wore this to have a quick visit with my (vaccinated) Grandparents on Easter! It was so nice to be able to see them in person! I'm sure my Grandma was getting tired of my emails - I would send her photos of things I had baked or Christian's garden updates, ha ha.

Spring is always such a tease. We'll have one day of gorgeous, almost 70 degree weather followed by days back in the 50s and low 60s. While I can't get rid of the sleeves or jeans just yet I've been trying to let my toes see some sunshine on those slightly warmer days.

I got this dress back in February during Roundabout's Winter sale (for $17) but didn't have a good reason to wear it until now.  I wore it to go to Town Hall to pick up our wedding license (WOO!) Seemed a good first wear for it, right? Not that I needed to wear a dress, but it made it feel a little bit more special.

Keeping things extra short and sweet today since I had a crazy work day yesterday! I've been meaning to wear this outfit for a few weeks but it has been so hot lately I had to keep putting it off. Finally we had a cooler day so I could wear these pants. I'm not 100% happy with my shoe choice but I haven't worn these much since getting them for my birthday last year and decided to give them some love.

I wore this last weekend for a trip to Terrain and Home Goods with my parents. Since there werne't many people shopping outside when we arrived I decided to have my Dad take some outfit pictures. We took some by more flowers & trees but the sun kind of messed with those shots, so these will have to do.

I'm so glad I was finally able to wear this sweater I bought in Net-a-Porter's July sale. It's a wool and cashmere blend so its suuuuuper soft! And I love the ribbed style, it's different sizes throughout.

October is my birthday month and I usually allow myself to splurge a little more than usual. But this month I attempted to curb that spending in favor of saving more for future travels. As usual things never go as planned! I got a $20 off of $40 for Lord & Taylor so I bought a super fun burnt orange sweater. I'm treating it as a wash because I cancelled my Renters Insurance (since I'm back home) and got a credit back for that. So it became "fun money," haha.

THEN Everlane had to come out with some $100 cashmere sweaters so naturally I took advantage of that and got a tee as well to get free shipping. I'm calling this cost $62 because I used the leftover credit mentioned above.  I also took advantage of my HautePoints and a free trade code (FALLFASHIONS17) on HauteTrader to get a BEAUTIFUL Louis Vuitton bag. Check out my review of the site, you'll also find another code for a free trade.

It was also my birthday this month and my parents bought me 2 fun pairs of shoes! AKA I picked them out a few months before and "forgot" my mom bought them.

I bought this sweater with a Pearls & Plaid gift card I won from the Connecticut Bloggers brunch back in August. The fit is a little strange since the shoulder area is tight and the rest is a looser fit, but I really like this shade of green and I don't have anything else this color in my closet! It's worn here with another new closet addition - floral mules from my Mom for my birthday!
