Summer Layering at #OFW

Is anyone else as ready for fall as I am?  I’m ready to wear cozy sweaters and drink warm apple cider on a crisp Autumn night.  Unfortunately it feels like summer has finally arrived, but the pools are now closed; it’s finally so hot and humid that a dip in a cool pool feels a bit like heaven. oh well. 

This past weekend ended with this:

Sunlight streaming in, snuggles and breakfast in bed.

<a photograph I love, but a photograph that doesn’t quite seem to equal the sum of all the happiness in the world mixed with temper tantrums, fecal jokes, crying, screaming, laughing, fighting, smiles, joy, sorrow and everything in between>

But started with this, the best I could muster after arriving at the Magnolia Hotel in the midst of a storm.  The instinct to wear fall clothing to the Spring Shows and spring clothing to the Fall Shows seems instinctual, but my frizzy hair is a constant reminder of just how hot and humid it is.  The best I could do for a warm, humid and rainy evening was these comfy pair of Madewell crop skinny skinny jeans, some patent leather pumps and layer on some gold necklaces.

Meg of (my fellow OFW attendee) shot these photos for me in the gorgeous patio at the Magnolia Hotel in downtown Omaha.  The Magnolia is definitely a hotel with charm and lots of character!
