Boot weather :)

First day of the season I could wear boots :) So exciting. Today it is in the lower 60's and sunny. I love it! I just bought these boots about a month ago and am very happy with them. A cheaper alternative to the Sam Edelman Pierce boots.

The green vest....again

Well, you can't say I didn't warn you. I have the vest on again. I'm telling ya, it goes with everything! I wore this outfit sometime last week. Lately I haven't been wearing anything worthy of posting because we are moving :) Which I am very excited about! But I definitely have been going the comfy route with the clothes. Anyways, happy Monday :)

High Five for Friday

So happy today is Friday! Linking up with From My Grey Desk for High Five for Friday. Have a great one :)

1. I finished this book last week, but didn't have a chance to review it for you. It's very good! Made me laugh out loud more than once.

2. I started listening to Christmas music this week at work. I know, I's entirely too early. It's so beautiful and calming though! I love it. Below are a couple of my favorite Christmas cd's

3. I received my Birchbox in the mail yesterday, so fun! It was full of goodies: sample of b.b. cream, shampoo & conditioner, hair tie, face brightener, nail polish and a brush guard.

4. I woke up this morning and it was in the 50's! Love it. Perfect morning to pick up a Pumpkin Spice Latte and wear a hoodie :)

5. My friend brought this delicious snack into work a couple days ago. Yum!

What I Read Wednesday

Happy Wednesday! The book I read this week is I Never Promised You A Goodie Bag by Jennifer Gilbert.  This is a true story of Jennifer's survival of a random attack. After graduating college she was visiting a friend in New York City. A man followed her off the subway and up to her friends apartment building and then attacked her with a screwdriver. The book chronicles the aftermath of dealing with the attack and how it changed her as a person. 

Jennifer is a well-known event planner in New York City and now has a family of five. It is a very inspirational story and I was rooting for Jennifer the whole way through. I was in awe of her drive and strength. It's a great story that I would recommend.

I bought this top while I was in Chicago for my birthday in June, but have been saving it. I absolutely love it! Perfect to wear over a pair of leggings but will also looked nice tucked into a dark pair of jeans.

Leggings: Maurices
Necklace: Target (really old)

What I Read Wednesday

This week's book is The Day I Ate Whatever I Wanted by Elizabeth Berg, which is a collection of short stories. I am never disappointed by her books and this one was no exception! All of the stories were cute and quirky. My two favorites short stories were the first and the last one. The first was about a woman who walked into a Weight Watchers meeting and turned around and left to spend her day eating whatever she wanted. The second told the story of a widow who decided one day to fly to Vegas and treat herself with clothes and jewelry. While on her mini vacation she met a man.

Whenever I read a book by Elizabeth Berg I always feel like we could be friends! I can't think of a higher compliment for an author.
