Jump for Joy

by Jessica Sturdy on October 25, 2012

I was back in Chicago this past weekend to celebrate my best friend’s birthday! It was such an amazing weekend and I have to admit that I was sad to get back on the plane to New York. Spending time with my girlfriends in my favorite city (well, one of them!) was just what the doctor ordered. The one thing on my list for the weekend? Take a stroll through Lincoln Park (my old neighborhood!) and take in all of the fall foliage.

Actually, I have to be honest. Lincoln Park wasn’t the only thing on my list. I also made sure I went to Einstein to get a pumpkin bagel with pumpkin schmear! 😉

Steve Madden Faux Fur Vest (similar styles: one, two, three) / J.Crew Navy Sweater / Current/Elliott Leopard Denim (also in a corduroy version for fall) / Nordstrom Scarf / Dodo’ Le Parisienne Navy Glitter Flats / Michael Kors Chain-Link Watch / Bauble Bar Pyramid Bracelet / Ralph Lauren Aviators

Between the amazing weather, my best friends, and the gorgeous scenery, I was so happy that I literally jumped for joy! :)

Need a few more reasons to jump for joy? Tomorrow is Friday! And I’ve also rounded up some budget-friendly(er) faux fur vests! You know I practically live in mine all fall and winter long…
