But it's the hottest month of the year for me, so my reality is more like this (which has been re-pinned zero times since I pinned it):
So I'm not sad that this is my last post for September and hopefully October will bring a little more balance in my weather vs. outfits that connect with the general public.
That said, I decided to link up with What's Up Wednesday (with Sheaffer, Mel and Shay) and answer a few of their questions instead of trying too hard to fit into the fall fashion mold.
What we're eating this week:
I'm addicted to Oatmeal Carmelitas and I've made them twice this month.

What I'm loving:
My Kendra Scott Rayne necklaces. I'm probably the last blogger to get on this bandwagon but I have always liked them but just didn't want to spend the money or try to figure out which color to get first! Since I'm not shopping for fall clothes yet I decided now was a good time to get some jewelry, so I got magenta and turquoise:
Old Navy / Necklace: Nordstrom / Skirt: Express (Similar) / Sandals: Sam Edelman "Georgia" / Watch: Fossil / Bracelet: Purple Peridot / Bag: Danielle Nicole / Ring: Target
Old Navy / Necklace: Nordstrom / Shorts: Target (Similar) / Hat: Target / Sandals: Target (Similar) / Watch: Fossil
What I'm dreading:
Tuesday nights. My kids are doing baseball this fall and one of their practices is Tuesday night for two hours. Add a 25 minute drive each way along with their usual hour of homework each night and it makes for a busy evening. We like to be busy but everyone needs some down time too, and so far I haven't figured out how to make that work on Tuesday.
What I'm working on:
Closet clean-out. I have a pile of stuff ready for donation and another pile I'd like to try selling on Instagram. I've sold on eBay in the past and the fees make it hardly worth my trouble. But I've seen a few people have some success selling on Instagram so I want to try that next.
What I'm excited about:
My favorite yoga instructor (Eoin Finn) acknowledged me on Instagram! I recommended his workouts to someone who asked for suggestions (Power Yoga for Happiness is my all time favorite, especially the Magically Hips Routine if you need a great stretch for your butt, thighs, and hip flexors) and he responded thanking me for the recommendation! That's the biggest brush with fame I've had in a long time!
What I'm watching/reading:
The only TV show I'm keeping up with right now is Dancing with the Stars. And for books I'm slowly working my way through Throne of Glass:
It's the Literary Ladies book of the month for September so I need to hurry up!
What I'm wearing:
I recap my four favorite outfits of the week on the blog every Friday (most recent here), and of course I always share my #OOTD on Instagram, so follow along there to keep up with what I'm wearing.
What I'm looking forward to next month:
Halloween! And tickets to see Marian Hill!
Bonus Question: What's your favorite Halloween tradition?
Little kids in Halloween Costumes. They are just too cute! My kids are in elementary school and not quite so little anymore, but they still like to dress up and they always get excited about their getting their costumes. I know I'll be sad when they don't want to dress up anymore!

That does it for me today! I'm off to celebrate surviving another September and I'll see you back here in October!
