I feel like this year Labor day takes on a whole new meaning! For me, it has given me so much perspective. I have heard about so many people loosing jobs and struggling to make ends meet. It makes me thankful to have my job and makes me want to work harder, go above and beyond for my friends in the heat of it. To try and make the best of this bad situation.
One thing that my parents and I began to do is -and if you follow me on social media you already know this- that we began ordering take out every Thursday. It is something a little different. Typically, we don't eat out a whole lot. Usually just for birthdays or special occasions like the start of the school year. Sometimes if someone had a gift card, we'd treat ourselves. This is the first time where we have decided weekly to order out. And it has been so nice! We have a whole list of new favorite restaurants! It is something we look forward too and have bonded over. Plus, and this is really why we started doing it, we are able to support local businesses.
Then I also think about the nurses, postal services and delivery drivers, grocery store employees, just to name a few! Who are working long hours to keep us all safe and healthy. I loved seeing videos of people applauding for the nursing staff at hospitals as shifts changed. I know this has been rough, but there are still many, many bright spots to look for and enjoy. I know it has been said a million times, but what is once more? We are so thankful for you!
OKAY, on to today's look! It is my first fall look for this year! Oh there will be plenty more to come! Don't worry. This one is works because it incorporates several fall pieces and inspirations. The auburn color of this skirt is one example. To me this color screams fall! It makes me think of the changing colors of the leaves. The graphic tee, is nice because the temps don't drop for a while still. So I can be comfortable and cool while still embracing the fall look.
The booties! They are some of my favorite booties! Very comfy! That small dash of detail on the sides is the perfect addition. It gives a bit of texture without stealing the show!
However, I will say that I sent this picture to a friend for an opinion before I posted and he said I looked like Carl Grimes.
From The Walking Dead.
No idea how to take that.
.........but *sigh* I can see it kind of.
