Lightweight Layers (+ a fun event!)

You guys, I can’t even handle this daylight savings time thing. The sunset was at 4:45 pm yesterday. Correct me if I’m wrong, but that is the AFTERNOON. How is that even possible?! I know I’m going to want to start hibernating soon.

But thankfully for both of us, there is a fun event this Thursday to look forward to! It may be dark outside when it starts, but there will be plenty of shopping, snacks, tunes, and sips at the EXPRESS x NYLON Flatiron Grand Opening Party to help us forget about DST. KatJulia, Natalie, and Christina will be there joining in on the fun, too! We’ll be there checking out the newly remodeled store and scooping up a few items at 25% off*! (I built up quite the extensive Express wishlist when I was hosting the Desk to Dinner event at the Madison store a few weeks ago!) Hope to see you there. 🙂

Make sure you RSVP to by 12 pm on November 7th!

Lately, I’ve been shying away from brights in favor of lots of neutrals. Grays, blacks, greens, and blues have been my go-to’s and I’ve been mixing and layering them all together. Here’s a look I wore this past weekend in New York featuring a whole slew of pieces I’ve gotten at Express recently!

    Wow I love the back of that sweater! So different. I kept thinking it was another white shirt under the black sweater until I clicked through to view it. The worst part about the time change for me is that my 5-year old son does not recognize it so no extra sleep and still today he is up an hour earlier… *cry*

    I don’t like the time change thing either! I work night shift, and now I never see daylight. I always joke with my husband that at this time of year we become bats. I love the scarf you picked for the outfit!

    Girl I feel you, the time change is killing me! Have fun at your event!!

    I’m not a fan of it getting dark before 5pm! This just means I’m going to have to do all of my runs in the dark no matter when they happen!

    Love those moto jeans. I keep seeing them and other similar pairs everywhere and each time I do I think I need to get a pair ASAP!

    Loving this whole look. You look so pretty and I am really liking that scarf. It’s subtle but makes a statement at the same time. Great styling job 🙂

    Great outfit Jessica. I knew we had an extra hour of sleep and i was a procrastinator Saturday night, hence why i left my work badge at home. I can’t wait for the days to get longer again. When I leave for work it’s dark and when I get home it’s dark. It sucks.
