All Black With a Neutral Touch
Happy Monday, loves! Can you believe that it is already November? This year is flying by and I am already getting excited for the holidays! Which is why I may or may not have put up our Christmas decorations yesterday against Thomas’ will. I love being able to enjoy the tree and decorations as long as possible, so I always decorate fairly early in November. I cannot wait to celebrate the holidays with all of you and I have an abundance of holiday related posts planned to share over the next two months, I am so excited! 🙂 Okay, aside from getting excited for the holidays and decorating the house; my weekend was fairly busy. On Friday Chicago held a parade and rally to celebrate the Chicago Cubs for winning the World Series, something that had previously not been done in Chicago for 108 years- you can only imagine how big the celebration was! More than 5 million fans showed up to cheer on the team, I read that it was the 7th largest human gathering in documented history, and oh man do I believe that. It was packed. We had to wake up at the crack of dawn just to make it downtown early enough to have a semi-decent view of the rally. It was totally worth it and it was so fun to be a part of! We had friends in town for the celebration, so afterwards we went to Homeslice to grab some much needed pizza. If you have never tried Chicago pizza you seriously need to do so at some point in your life, it is incredible. Then on Saturday I wore this outfit for a casual day of running some errands, I love this outfit and it has been perfect for the unusually warm weather we have been having here in Chicago. I love dressing for the fall weather so I refuse to wear short sleeves during the fall months, despite the weather reaching the mid 70s the past few weeks. My go-to outfit to semi dress for this weather has been a lightweight sweater topped with an oversized scarf, I am not torturing myself with layers, but I can easily add another layer for when the cool evening temperatures roll in. I purchased the sweater last week and I have quickly become obsessed with it, it is so soft and I love how it is a little longer in the back so that I can wear it with leggings. Also these faux leather leggings are AWESOME! They are shape fitting, which means they hold all the goodies in and are flattering on all body types, I have larger thighs and have never been able to find a faux leather legging that did not draw too much attention to that area. However I feel so comfortable and confident wearing these- I highly recommend trying them out.
You can shop these leggings, as well as the rest of the outfit, by clicking on the images below. I also want to point out that I recently purchased my scarf from Target for $19.99- however, I could not find it on the website so I posted a similar one!
