Labor Day Happiness


Labor Day means the end of summer, the start of fall, and my birthday!  This summer has flown by in a whirl and like everyone else I feel like I didn't really enjoy it like I normally do.  However, I am extremely excited for autumn for so many reasons.  First, because I love EVERYTHING to do with fall - apples, the changing leaves, sweaters, hoodies, cool crisp days, apple cider, plaid, the list goes on and on.  Secondly, this fall marks the many of new beginnings for myself and my family.  I am very excited to announce that I will be starting a new job this month!! I'll be doing marketing, fundraising, and social media development for a local non-profit and I'm so incredibly excited!!


With summer coming to an end, I feel the need to wear as many of my summer outfits as possible.  Like many of you fashionistas and Lilly lovers, I stalked the Lilly sale (even when the site was down), and was able to snag these adorable checkered shorts.  Since they are patterned they can be somewhat difficult to match.  However, since I love pairing different prints and random colors I had no problem throwing on my favorite anchor shirt.  Also, notice the new KJP bracelet I have on!! My fabulous boyfriend, Rob, bought this for me for my birthday!! He always knows the most perfect gifts to buy me! :) I am one lucky birthday girl!!

It would be a crime not to walk down to the river with the weather so beautiful.  Even though I still come down here in the chillier months, there is a something special about the river during the summer.  

As always, thank you so much for reading and for all the support!
