Sweater: H&M (in stores, can’t find it online yet!) | Skirt: Urban Outfitters | Bag: love this | Heels: Louboutin | Glasses: Quay

Β We’re in the beginning of my favorite month of the year, which means cozy knits, leather skirts and the ability to layer a coat on top. True, they are pieces we can wear all year long, but they feel the best in October because it’s crisp, cool and perfectly comfortable.Β 

I have to say that I’m beyond ready for this week to beΒ over. It’s been pretty rough dealing with what happened in Vegas. This one made me sob. This oneΒ felt extremely personal. Las Vegas has been like a 2nd home to me my entire life. We were just at the Mandalay for my sister’s Bachelorette party 2 months ago. While I may not have known any of the victimsΒ personally, I have plenty of friends who did, and my heart is so, so heavy for all of them. I’m justΒ at a loss on what to feel and what to write…

On a lighter note, I’ll be back on Monday with our trip to the pumpkin patch. Those little guys make everything better, right? At least for me, they help! πŸ™‚ XO

    You look so chic, Shauna! I love this sweater with the skirt, so perfect for fall! Also, your hair looks fab!! It really has been a rough week. I know how often you guys go to Vegas and so crazy that we were both there two months ago. Sending prayers to all the Las Vegas victims, families and friends. Just so awful. Hope you guys have a good weekend and can’t wait for the pumpkin patch pictures!

    Yay for leather skirts! You’ve inspired me to break mine out now!

    And girllll this week has made my heart hurt, I just can’t wrap my head around such evil. I was freaking out on my drive to work Monday morning when I heard the news because 2 of my friends were there on separate trips. One of them was fine, and the other was barricaded in his bathroom all night because he happened to be staying on the same floor as the shooter. I can’t even imagine the horror he lived through that night as well as those on the ground. Sending lots of *hugs* and light your way <3

    What happened in Vegas (and continues to happen all over the country, more and more) is horrific. We haaaave to do something! I can’t imagine what those families are going through, or what the survivors of the attack are going to deal with in the years to come. Ugh.

    I’m loving the leather skirt here, doll! So cute on you!

  8. I am sad about Vegas, too. My husband was at Vegas a few weeks ago for a conference in Mandalay Bay! So scary. I love this preppy neutral look on you and it is cozy and def. speaks fall!

    I am heartbroken about the events in Las Vegas. It’s so sad that we live in such trying and difficult times. On a lighter note you look fabulous in this outfit. That layered top is too cute.

    You look so chic and I’ve been stalking H&M for a leather skirt, so good to know this one is coming out online soon! The tragedy in Las Vegas is just unbelievable….I can only imagine what the victims’ families are going through. So terribly sad…

    The world is such a hateful place but at the same time you see how much love is shown for fellow human beings without even knowing them. It’s a very interesting time we are living in. When I saw this look it made me laugh because on insta I posted something similar. Literally a white button up under a gray t shirt. I had jeans on but I love it with the leather skirt! Happy Friday!

    I am so loving this preppy fall look, Shauna! You look so incredible. Love that bag too!

    I’m sorry you’ve been so personally affected by the tragedy in Vegas. I can’t comprehend it, it’s a scary world we live in sometimes. It does leave me speechless.

    I’m glad to have blogs to escape into, a little fashion and frivolity! πŸ™‚ I like the layering in your outfit too.

    You look sexy as hell, Shauna, like Jessica Pearson from Suits sexy.

    Wow! I love the way your Chanel purse pairs with this preppy outfit. You look so feminine and chic. I could definitely see myself wearing something like this, because it is truly the perfect look for fall.
    Thank you for linking up this week!
