Lately our weekends have been extremely busy. In addition to family commitments, visits, and (very sadly) a funeral, we have been packing in the miles. Not only that we have really been trying to add in fun activities for Claire. Just this weekend we were able to go to a pumpkin patch near our house with my brother, sister-in-law, and my niece. We picked pumpkins, held baby kittens, fed animals, and ate delicious butternut squash mac and cheese for lunch! Sound yummy? You can find the recipe here. Did you see our adorable Olaf from our Boo at the Zoo Saturday night?

So needless to say, it's all about easy layers on the weekends. I have been living in my joga jeans and breaking out my vests. They are perfect for whatever mother nature decides to throw at us and for running/driving around everywhere!

  10. Laura, you look totally adorable and ready to be on the go! I'd wear this outfit head to toe. It would be a cute causal teaching look. Now if we could just get some fall weather here in San Jose. 80s all this week!

  11. I cannot take my eyes off that gorgeous cognac leather bag. And I remember this plaid scarf you DIY-ed because I made one per your instructions and mine is a cute red plaid, also.

    And sorry about the loss. Funerals are tough.

  29. Love the rich colour of the satchel bag which is a lovely contrast to the other pop of colour of your scarf giving the whole look a great balance against the softer colours of the outfit. Lovely ankle boots.
    Sorry to hear you had a funeral.
