HELLO OCTOBER! I made it through my first month of teaching. To celebrate finishing the first month of the school year strong, we had a pizza party during class and I’m-not-even-kiddin’! My students were happy to oblige ;). While teaching has been all-consuming and blogging as been on hold (temporarily, of course!), I am absolutely loving it. I’m currently trying to figure out my new norm (if that’s even a thing…) & until then, I’m just enjoying the journey….and sleeping a ton haha. As I shared on my instagram a few days ago, I’m definitely being stretched in new ways I never thought possible, and it’s been so incredible to see God’s hand at work through it all. Now, about tonight’s post.
Nathan was in Idaho this past weekend, and we always try and do something special – big or small to celebrate when he comes back. We ended up going to a nice outdoor mall and then grabbed some dinner. And thankfully, because it was a week-night, it wasn’t crowded and we were able to stroll hand in hand while we caught up on the day.
There’s nothing fancy about this OOTD, but it’s the comfiest welcome-to-fall look I’ve ever worn. I love how this sweater cardigan (you can find another cardi on the blog here) has three quarter length sleeves so that a tight-fitted long-sleeved tee can fit comfortably underneath. Not too heavy – but just enough to help with those strong, chilly winds we’ve been experiencing in VA lately.
I’m also honestly about to wear sneakers for the rest of my life. (kidding – but only kind of)!! They are perfect for when you are running around all day, hastle free, and this pair goes with most casual outfits in my closet #thankyoublack.
And just because I feel like broadcasting this…. the fact that I am wearing these plum pants is a BIG deal. All my life I have ALWAYS avoided anything red or purple because of my hair, and little by little I’m trying to break that!! Y’all should be proud LOL.
What was your welcome-to-fall look this year?!
