And the Minnesota weather is what’s causing my summer blues! But it’s a good reason to start getting ready for fall, layering pieces, pulling out all of my scarves and jackets!

I love fall!

But summer is still here…

And I love this Urban Outfitters dress especially for its’ back…

And it’s so easy to strike a pose in this dress, and have fun! That’s what it is! It’s my fun dress…

… which can be easily transformed into a fall outfit with the help of a scarf, a denim jacket and a pair of leggings:

Are you getting ready for fall? If so, how? Do tell!

Sweater Story

There is nothing like the smell of wet wool! It was a rainy day today in Minneapolis, and I got caught in it while I was on the phone making my next $16 haircut appointment at the Aveda Institute…

This sweater came from Goodwill in Hopkins last Saturday as I was thrifting for something striped for my Refashion Runway contest! It caused a big discussion at work today too! But one thing for sure – it’s one of the most comfortable sweaters you want to wrap around yourself on a day like today, and if this is the route our weather is taking this year, I am sticking to my decision!

None of the photos (especially the action ones – I almost ran my husband over twice! – would’ve been possible without my Samsung Galaxy Camera!)

Mustard, please!

I have done it, I have found the perfect mustard pants! And since I didn’t know what to wear them with today I went for my Ralph Lauren denim shirt. It’s my go-to shirt for almost every occasion, a comfort cloth of sorts! I used to have another “comfort cloth” piece of clothing before that, a gray American Rag cardigan I got at Macy’s a long long time ago! I think it’s still there somewhere in the depths of my closet in Russia!

Do you have any items in your closet that are like this? Let me know, would love to hear what everyone else is obsessing with!
