Happy October 1st!

Wow, I did not see October coming. At all. In fact, when I opened up my computer and saw that it said October I literally thought it was a mistake.

I'm an observant one, and don't you forget it!

I feel like I had a serious post rolling around in my head but I think today shall be the day I talk about very serious and important things. Like clothes.

Last week, I became practically obsessed with a little phenomenon I'll call the "sweatshirt jacket." It's a sweatshirt made into the shape of a jacket. Genius, I tell you.

And so I went on a mission to find said sweatshirt jacket - and it wasn't easy, people.

Most of the stores had frumpier styles but when I arrived at Forever 21 I knew that I would eventually find a winner. I just had to sort through lots of sequins and spandex to find it.

My first few options were adorable - cute, belted, stretchy.... but they were all way too short. Barely hit my belly button. Not good.

And then, I saw it. It was long, form-fitting... and brown. Not exactly what I was hoping for - I'm a black-as-a-neutral kind of a girl.

Either way, I couldn't get it out of my mind, so it came home with me.

And I've been wearing it on and off ever since.

What do you think of the cocoa color??

What are you obsessed with for fall?? Shoes? Scarves? Do tell!!

Happy Thursday! (Where has the week gone, seriously?)
