Happy Monday! In order for Jake to take last weekend off, he has to work 19 days in a row. Luckily he only had to work a “half-day” on Saturday (which, in residency, a half-day ends up still being 5:30 a.m. until noon). We were able to accomplish a lot in his short time off, like crossing new places in Birmingham off our to-do list and watching college football. It’s magical how just a few extra hours together can make you reconnected.
Since football season has finally started and Labor Day has come and gone, it’s no secret that I have fall on my mind because it’s my favorite time of the year. I’ve said this many times, but I don’t expect the temperature in Birmingham to drop anytime soon. Now that Labor Day has passed, I am finding myself wanting to dress for fall. With the humidity outside here, it’s miserable to be outside with long sleeves right now. I am finding ways to wear lightweight clothes that still look like fall though. This is mostly darker colors and adding textures like suede and leather.
If you’re looking for the perfect “staple” dress, this Leith dress is a must. It seems like most bloggers have it, but that’s for a good reason. It hugs your curves in just the right places, so it’s extremely flattering. I usually avoid bodycon dresses because I don’t feel comfortable in them. This dress is different though! It’s the perfect transitional piece because it comes in many fall colors. It works year round, too. I have a ton of little black dresses, but this one is great because it can be dressed up or down. I kept this look pretty casual and then added a leather jacket at the end to show y’all how to wear it when it cools down. I also plan to add booties as well. I am getting mine out this week. I will be putting my straw bags away soon, so I had to use this bag one last time this year.
I love that the dress works year round. I’m trying to get better about investing in basics and this is a dress I would gladly take in every color.
I am starting to slowly decorate for fall. I will share my decor when I finish.
What did you do this weekend?
