Falling into September

It is still nice and balmy in South Carolina, but 2-weeks of work training brought me back to the slightly chilly weather in Indianapolis. I love living by the beach, but there's nothing better than fall in the Midwest. Something about the season, even more so than any other, makes me feel happy and hopeful. True, summers are filled with warm nights and a feeling of limitless possibility. But the crisp, clean feeling of the fall air brings me back to reality and signals fresh beginnings. After starting a new job and moving to a new city, that is a very calming feeling. Life throws you curve balls -- no matter how much you plan or how much you pray or how much you practice. And sometimes, when it seems to spiral too far out of the very loose grasp you try to maintain on it, a fresh beginning is just what you need.

I packed this little outfit for casual nights after work. Gap has some amazing blazers right now, which is perfect, because what screams fall more than blazers and jeans? I was still playing around with this look while in South Carolina, so I paired it with my favorite Old Navy flats. But Indy calls for boots and a little scarf and I couldn't be happier.

Here's to hoping that the early fall chills bring you the same feeling of freshness and optimism. It really is a peaceful time of year. Take time to stop and notice the quiet beauty all around you.
