Friday Five

1. Fall Weather 
How amazing is this weather?!  Here in the Northeast (still can't believe I live here!), the cooler temperatures are here to stay, and I'm loving it.  Leaves are changing colors, falling from the trees, and the scarves and boots are on :)

2. Fall Fashions
My new wool floppy hat!  Found it at Marshalls for just $14.99!  
And the perfect mustard sweater :)

And this fashionista from Pinterest (it kind of looks like Megan to me!) inspired an recent outfit of mine!

Mustard tunic, black leggings, and a faux fur vest!  LOVE!

More mustard and faux fur, you ask??
Ok, fine.

I got this fun Zara vest from a consignment store with the tags still on :)  Originally $79 and got it for $24!  And I found these dark greek skinnies at H&M for only $12.95!  They have tons more colors too.

I tweeted this outfit pic and one of my FAVORITE fashionistas tweeted me back! 
Day. Made.

3. Philly Cheese-steaks
My parents drove through last weekend for a quick visit and we spent the afternoon in Philadelphia - exploring, shopping, and eating!  We had the BEST philly cheese-steaks and Ruben sandwiches at the Reading Terminal Market!     



4. New Recipes
I had one of my best weeks of recipes last week - every meal was a HUGE hit with me and the hubs.  Here a few of the highlights :)

5. Target Loves
I've recently scored a few lovely treats from Tar-jay!  
This bright pink pullover has been a part of my weekly daily wardrobe.  I am so impressed with the quality and material of it - it reminds me so much of the Lululemon pullovers.

C9 by Champion® Women's Premium 1/4 Zip Jacket - Assorted Colors

Eeeeek - I'm so excited about these leather boots from Target!  I just ordered them yesterday, so I haven't received them yet.  But they are modeled after the Frye Harness boots, and I am a huge fan!  I believe they are only on the website, but at $60, shipping is free :)





What have been your highlights of the week??
XOXO
