 Wearing lately:

1. Puffer vest//mustard//scarf//Hunter's

This has been my quintessential fall uniform...I want to wear it every.day.
Sweater: J. Crew Factory (recent)
Vest: Gap
Scarf: H&M (old)
Dark denim: Gap
Boots: Hunter

 2. Aztec sweater//black + brown

Ahhh this sweater. So cozy and fun. Pinterest proved to me that brown and black can 100% be worn together.
Sweater: Urban Outfitters (old, similar)
Black leggings/tee: Target
Boots: Madewell Archive

3. Shades of grey//stripes

This sweatshirt dress has completely repaid itself in cost-per-wear. There are so many ways to layer it for fall.

Dress: Madewell
Scarf:  J. Crew Factory
Chambray: J. Crew Factory (old)
Boots: J. Crew via Anna

 Two more things (linking up with Hallie):

4. I made this white chicken chili last night and it's perfecto for a cool fall night. This recipe is hands-down my favorite white chicken chili recipe; it's super easy and soooo good (it won a Rachel Ray contest). I pretty much follow the recipe other than that I cook the chicken in a little olive oil first and then I put everything in the crockpot on high for a good hour and a half. Oh and I use Mexican jack cheese in place of straight pepper jack (Stephen can't handle anything remotely spicy).
5. Stephen and I won't be dressing up this year for Halloween, but we did go to a party last year as Mr. and Mrs. Incredible (I still can't believe that I got him to wear red spandex). 


I also happened to be on call that night so I was beeper-ready.
I'm working my last shift in the ER today and then I'm off until January to take the second part of my boards and finish up my interviews. This year is just going by crazy fast and I'm really trying to savor each day before the rigors of residency next year.
