Fall Tease

Happy August! I can't believe it's already here (and I'm ecstatic about it!). So as the summer has been dwindling down I have done a little extra traveling. Last week I was in Vernal, Utah, and last night I arrived in Rock Springs, Wyoming. This last bit of my travels mean that I'm that much more closer to home (t-minus eight days!), but before I head back into the sun (The Format reference anyone?) I'm going to soak up this cool, breezy weather we've been encountering lately.



Cool weather means pretty dresses, tights, and my favorite jean jacket. It's like I'm getting a sneak peak at fall, well, more like a teaser since it won't be this cool in Phoenix until late October (if that).



On a side note, I picked up this pretty sterling silver band from a farmer's market a few weeks ago. The lady selling it gave me a great price because she said the inside of the ring is stamped with the words muffin top (long story, but it was a nickname for a friend?). Knowing that the ring has a funny story behind it makes me smile, and the fact that I picked it up along my travels makes it that much more special.


Since the weather was so lovely I got to wear my favorite We Love Colors tights. I decided to go with a bright, fun color for summer. I've never been one to wear orange very often, but lately I've been giving it a shot. It's always fun to step out of your comfort zone every now and then.



Next week I will be back with my love for good. I am SO happy that these few months apart have gone by so quickly (well, that could be debatable), and soon I will be back where I belong. I'm so looking forward to spending lots of time together, going on so many coffee dates, spending time checking out our favorite places in Phoenix , starting the new school year together (yay grad school) and, of course, having my personal photograph back! It's truly going to be an amazing month!

  8. I was just thinking the other day, "hope Chelsea enjoys wearing leggings and tights while she still can before coming back home!" Great outfit, I love the pairing of the orange tights with the yellow dress! I've also never really worn orange, going with tights seems like a great way to start. That's so awesome you get to do a bit more travelling! Enjoy it! Also, I posted your interview today, thanks so much again for being so sweet in answering!
