Since I was a child, I have lived for fall weather. No, this had nothing to do with Pumpkin Spice Lattes, leather boots, or football, better yet it had everything to do with my dislike for the sun & for the heat. (There’s more to this, it’s not as strange as it sounds.) Not to mention, my birthday is in October-, which could also play a huge factor in my love for fall. Anyway, the last two days we have been getting this outrageously beautiful weather here – it feels as if fall is upon us already (though, I know it is not.) Anyway, I decided to do Part 3 of my 50 States of Fashion post a little early since wearing a turtleneck and vest was actually tolerable.

I wore the H&M turtleneck in Part 1 of the 50 States of Fashion. I know that this turtleneck will be on repeat this fall & winter seeing that I love to layer & I love stripes. Not to mention, how about this vest? I will confess that I will probably wear this poor vest to pieces this winter… like I did my fur vest last winter! Since I do not like coats/jackets, I often opt for vests instead.

In other news, John’s finishing up his third week of pediatrics today… this means he has one more week left in Fort Smith. Time is just flying by, but I am really loving being back in Arkansas and being able to see my family weekly.

  20. Great post, I think my experiences pretty much mirrored your own. I used to separate family from work and support them with LogMeIn, but when the free accounts went paid and the mobile support was extra on top of that,
    Hello dear .You put really very helpful information.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
