I spent this past weekend at home in New Jersey to celebrate my birthday. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect, I was able to spend some quality time with family and was treated to some pampering. It’s amazing what family time can do, even though I got back late Monday night, I still felt refreshed and recharged on Tuesday morning. While fall has always been a prime season for clothing, it has also become a favorite season of mine because it marks the beginning of a long stretch of full on family time. This weekend, I visited some of the local farms with my sister and then enjoyed a meal at my favorite restaurant with the rest of my family. It’s funny, I realized that when I’m home and going out with family I don’t put as much thought into my clothing. Sometimes that results in the best outfits, and in this case that’s especially true. I was layering like crazy, but the sweater that made its mark was this J. Jill shaker-stitch topper. The deep navy color complemented the classic reds and blues of the plaid button down. Not to mention, my footwear game was especially strong with these casual ‘hiking’ boots from Primark. I was skeptical at first, considering they were only $30.00, but their quality outshines some of my more expensive favorites. I may even buy another pair to have on-hand in case I wear them out! And I know how busy life gets, but don’t forget to carve out some time to spend with family. It’s the best kind of medicine and guarantees a ton of laughs and great food!
