The Fall weather lately has me excited to break out some of my sweaters, boots and other Fall items. Todays look is my go to style when running around town during the cooler days. It is so comfortable and I love wearing layers. Most of these items have become “staple” pieces in my wardrobe. What pieces do you tend to wear as “staple” pieces? This new lip color, which I am in love with, will for sure be on repeat this Fall.
Today also marks a special day, my husband and I are celebrating 2 years of marriage. We are gearing up to go on a road trip this weekend to the upper east coast to celebrate. I will be sure to document places to see and things to do along the way. We are heading to Maine, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Vermont, and New Hampshire. Wishing you all a great week.

Let me begin todays post by saying I am very sorry for being somewhat MIA here on the blog. Many of you are such great followers and come back daily for more. I thank each of you so much for having such an interest in a normal everyday gal from the Midwest and my blog. With that being said, I am trying to keep the posts to 3-4 times per week. Once the winter is gone, I promise to have better locations and light for these photos. 🙂
Who says basic pieces cannot be cute? The beginning of the work week is always difficult to get back in the swing of things, but your style does not have to be. I took a few basics pieces and made a comfortable outfit suitable for any occasion. Whether you work in an office setting, classroom setting or travel for work, this outfit works for anyone. I know, you do not want to wear heels in the snow or cold weather? I don’t either, but you can wear a warm boot and change your shoes as soon as you get into the office. I have always been a huge ‘neutrals’ kinda gal. Keeping it classic and clean is always a favorite look of mine. If you do not have these basic pieces in your closet, be sure to check out a few of my favorites from above. My oh my I am loving this gold cuff I got on sale at Banana Republic Factory recently. What are some of your favorite basic pieces?

Happy Friday and may the weekend begin! Keeping it super simple and casual for today’s post here on My Brunette Adventure. It was a cold and rainy day here causing me to go straight to my comfortable pieces. I thought my leopard accessories were the best choice to vamp up today’s look. The rest of the outfit I kept it very basic. A little singing and dancing in the rain anyone? While wearing leopard? Sorry for the bit of blur to the photos, as you can see behind me it was nearly dark out. Ummmmmm, yes it was 5:10 and the street lights were already on. My kid self would say that is totally not fair. Mom always said, “you should be home before the street lights come on”. Well mom, today I would have not made it home before the street lights came on. 🙂 Okay, so my mom never said that but it is a saying, right?
Oh hello weekend, how I have missed you. Do you have any big plans for the weekend? I have a very big to-do list. Lots of holiday-ness going on at the Bryant house. Those who may not know, I make a to-do list just about everyday. Some days the lists do not get accomplished, but that is okay. 🙂
Today, we sing and dance in the rain all while wearing my favorite leopard accessories. What are some of your favorite leopard pieces in your wardrobe?
Have a great weekend!
