love*birds: 10.19.11 **$40 giveaway!!!!**

good morning, all! it's a crisp fall day here in minneapolis. and as much as i loved and appreciated the unseasonably warm weather we had the past few weeks, there is definitely something to be said for pulling out the soft blankets to sleep with. chris and i love fall because we actually start snuggling again. summer tends to get a bit too hot for that. so this week i'm loving snuggling. and....

i am so in love. the full skirt, the length, the color. wouldn't this be the perfect skirt to wear to a fabulous holiday party?

the print and colors of this jacket are so gorgeous. if this were mine, i would seriously throw it on over every single outfit.

everyone needs a comfy ski sweater to keep them warm during the colder months, right? i think this one is perfect!

i know i have expressed my love of blazers in past posts. well, this one is no exception. i love the fitted cut and the color is perfect for fall!
