Hello, friends! And Happy Monday! I completed my first week of OB/GYN and am enjoying having Mondays off to run errands, study and of course, set aside some blog time! It is pretty clear to me that this specialty is not where I want to end up, but I am learning a LOT, and it is so special to see parents see their babies on the ultrasound, or hear the baby's heartbeat for the first time. I am working in a large practice with all-female staff, which is really fun...and entertaining to say the least!. This week will be a short one due to the holiday. Adam and I are heading up to be with my family for the weekend and I am super excited!

Since Mondays have been productive and busy days for me lately, I am reaching for comfortable pieces that layer easily as the temperatures continue to fall. This vest is a staple in my fall wardrobe, and has been a must-have among the fashionistas. I found a dupe in a complete twist of fate: as I was walking around the mall the other day, I saw it in the Coldwater Creek window display! It is $89.95 with an additional 40% off!! RUN, DON'T WALK!!

On another note, I recently picked up these jeans for about $15 at American Eagle. I have been looking for the perfectly faded, deconstructed pair for a while and I am so excited that these are long enough!! Pairing them with polka dots, leopard flats, and a fresh and feminine arm party makes my errand attire complete!

What is your go to outfit for your day(s) off? Thanks for reading, and please follow along on Bloglovin' for more fun!
