Tuesday's Pinspiration!

Guys, it's cold. Like, really cold. My excitement for the changing seasons was short-lived this year because I quickly realized that once it becomes "heavy duty winter jacket weather", it takes about 10x longer to get my kiddo in and out of the car. Getting in: gather jacket, mittens, and hat. Climb in car. Tell him three times to stop playing with the light. Get buckled in. Start the car. Wait for it to warm up. Leave. Getting out: Find a parking spot that is close enough to where we're headed so we don't freeze on the walk there. Unbuckle car seat. Find hat and the mittens that have been thrown around the backseat. Put on jacket after answering the question, "Why do I need my jacket?" at least twice. Run to our destination. It's tiring, I tell ya. So yes, I'm back to being ready for tank tops and flip flops. Unfortunately, I live in MN/NY, so my dreams of a tropical Christmas will never happen. I have accepted that.

The only good thing about this weather is the adorable clothing that comes along with it. I don't know a single person who doesn't love fall fashion. It's all about comfy, cozy sweaters, tall boots, and scarves. Seriously, who doesn't love scarves?! Anyways, I came across this photo of Amber Fillerup from Barefoot Blonde and just had to share it with you! Of course, I did my own interpretation of it as well, for a cheaper alternative!

Isn't she gorgeous?! I'm totally jealous of that hair. And the hat. Here's my take on the super easy-to-wear outfit, although if you're in a cold weather climate like me, you'll definitely need a jacket!

All the details for this outfit can be found on my Polyvore page!

It is now time for bed. At 8:45. I have been working my buns off (well, "toning" my buns off is more like it), and did an hour long Body Pump class tonight while fighting a cold, so I think it's time for me to hit the hay and refuel. We've got a busy week ahead!
