Pining Away for Autumn Weather + Fall Fashion

I love summer. I adore the warm nights and I even like the humidity. But right about now, I find myself longing for autumn weather. Crisp air. Fiery foliage. Rainy fall days. I'm not going to wish away the summertime, but if you were putting up with this muggy Iowa weather you might just agree. 

Mostly, I miss fall fashion. Jeans and boots. Soft sweaters. Scarves. Tights. Layers. Oh, how I love layers. To tide me over until autumn, I've rounded up some favorite fall looks that I look forward to wearing.

Fall is so lovely.

Are you looking forward to it as much as I am?



DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done.
I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia.

Aniela, a lovely reader from Germany, sent me an email requesting advice on recreating the style of Penny's apartment on Big Bang Theory. 

Aria's Room | Pretty Little Liars Decor

Welcome back for LU's 2nd room in the PLL series!  Today you're getting a glimpse into my favorite room on the show... Aria's room.  Aria Montgomery is the artistic, imaginative, bookworm of the bunch.  So it's no surprise that her room has an artsy, historic, romantic eclecticism atmosphere.  Plus, it's full of books.  My two words for Aria's attic space: Vintage Eclectic.  (Those happen to be my two favorite decorating words... so brace yourself for my soon-to-come swooning.)
