Fall-Winter Style // Friday Favorites

I  think we've all picked up on the drastic weather changes in this last week here in PA - we are definitely headed for winter temps people! Ew. Winter is not my favorite season, BUT there are some things I like to enjoy during this chilly time - cozy-ing up, warm coffee, blankets and comfy clothes. Speaking of which, I thought I'd share some of my favorite trends for this winter's fashion. Nothing fancy - just classic, comfy cozy.

1. Plaid

This year I am beyond obsessed with this pattern. It is a little out of control. But seriously it is so timeless. Put it under a sweater or pair it with a furry vest. You canNOT go wrong.

2. Cable Knit Sweaters

Since we are talking timeless ... it doesn't get much more classic than this. When it comes to winter, I prefer to be warm, even if it means sacrificing a little fashion. But I'm so glad I have a piece like this that keeps me warm and allows for a little style.

3. L.L. Bean Boots and thick warm socks

After the snow we got last year, I'm determined to be more prepared. I can feel cute AND ready to take on the elements in these booties.

Weekend Wear // Style File

This weekend is the last of the Summer and I'm quite excited about my plans. The transition from Fall to Summer is one of my absolute favorites, especially when it comes to style. I'm sure no other girl on the planet does this (I'm not serious), but I'm usually standing in my closet staring at my clothes for like a good half hour ... before I even start to decide what I will actually wear. So I decided to go ahead and prep my weekend wardrobe and who knows? maybe it will even inspire what you will put on for your own weekend plans!

Tonight my husband and I are going to enjoy food at the lovely Society Hill Society restaurant in Philadelphia. It is restaurant week and whenever there is a good deal (especially on food) I'm there! This place isn't too fancy, but it is 'date night' so I want to dress up a little and of course, still be comfortable. Comfort is one of my style staples! So here is my Fall/Summer date night outfit:

Speaking of my sister in law, we are going to garage sale in the morning. Since it is quite cool in the mornings now I like to layer a bit. Ahhh layering - another favorite style staple. With coffee in hand we will peruse and barter and hopefully, walk away with some fun finds - all the while I'll be wearing this:

Jean Shorts:  Target   Purse:  Garage Sale   T-Shirt:  F21   Sweatshirt:   Walk in Love    Sunglasses:  Target

Saturday afternoon I'm excited for my first trip to Longwood Gardens! I found a living social deal and was so pumped because I've been wanting to visit, what I've heard is SUCH a beautiful place, for quite some time now! I'll be taking my camera and I'm so looking forward to walking amongst the pretty flowers with my man. Sounds like my kind of relaxing afternoon, enjoying God's beautiful creation. Tomorrow is supposed to be warm later in the day and like I said, it is still Summer, so I'm going to pull out a sundress for the occasion, along with these other pretties:

Scarf:  Urban Outfitters   Dress:  Target   Glasses:  Warby Parker   Hat:  F21   Shoes:  Target

Finally, Sunday ... Sunday Funday. First, on the agenda - Church! Yay! I'm pretty sure the rest of the day will entail some relaxing, maybe a bonfire out back in the evening ... but mostly relaxing. Yesssss! Would you believe I got this skirt for free? Thank you Kohl's $10 off coupon and super clearance! So once again, sticking with my rule of comfort I'm gonna keep it simple and wear this:

Skirt:  Kohl's   Shoes:  GoJane.com   T-Shirt:  Gap   Jean Shirt:  Marshalls   Headband:  F21

Just to keep things real ... here is a look at my attempt to my make clothes look pretty haha! I had a curious little friend join me ;) He was probably like 'Mom, why are your clothes on the floor?!' OK, yes my husband and I refer to ourselves as mommy and daddy in relation to our puppy. Also, yes isn't it ridiculous the things we do to get a 'good' photo haha!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend - no matter what you wear or where you go! Yay! The weekend is here ... well, almost!
