Corduroy & Over the Knee Boots

Hello sunshines!

It has been a while since my last post, 3 weeks to be exact. Life has been crazy hectic lately! Mr. Photographer and I have been on the road every single weekend the past few weeks and this trend is going to continue until the first week of December. Also, I wanted to share some exciting news with all of you - I'm getting my MBA part-time at Northwestern! It's my first quarter of classes, so balancing work, life, and school has kept me quite busy...which is also contributing to why my blog posts have been so infrequent. Adulting is hard, am I right?!

Anyway, this past weekend, Mr. Photographer and I went back to my hometown in Columbus, IN to celebrate my little brother's 14th birthday. I can't believe that he's already a freshman in high school and is growing up so fast! I always enjoy going home to spend time with my family and wish that home was closer...how about 20 mins instead of the 4 hour drive! So my little brother was the one that suggested that I take pictures next to the iconic bridge in Columbus. Many of you may not know that Columbus is actually an architectural gem and named "a Midwestern Mecca of Architecture!" I will have to stop by more hot architectural spots for pictures the next I visit home :). Columbus is further south so I was super lucky to have enjoyed beautiful almost 70's weather this past weekend! I've been wanting to wear my blog outfit for quite some time now, so I was happy to finally be able to take pictures in it! The blush colored corduroy skirt from Forever 21 I actually bought back in September and have just been hoarding it until now....I'm notorious for doing this with new clothes!!!

Outfit 1 - Sweater: Urban Outfitters // Skirt: Forever 21 // Knee High Boots: DSW (Charles David boots are old and no longer available, but DSW has so many other great options...similar here and here) // Crossbody bag: Kate Spade (sold out in the Mulled Wine color, but similar wine/burgundy/purple colored bags from Kate Spade and Rebecca Minkoff) // Necklace: Baublebar (sold out but currently eyeing this one here from Baublebar!)

Outfit 2 - Top: J Crew // Jacket: Calvin Klein (old but cute black coats from Nordstrom: T-Tahari, Ralph Lauren, Guess)

Thanks for reading! Leave me a comment and let me know your thoughts on the outfits :)

Xoxo,
