I've been mulling over leather leggings longer than I'd care to admit. They are the number one item on my list of fall essentials and that's just the tip of the leather iceberg for me. Ever since I bought this leather-sleeved coat last spring, I can't stop thinking about leather details. Even the kid's (ahem) jacket I wore earlier this week had a touch of leather piping. Have you caught the leather bug, too?

Boy, do I love a good shirtdress. Its demure silhouette is completely appropriate for the office while at the same time its totally sassy (yes, I went there) enough to wear out at night with a pair of heels and bright clutch. I added the denim jacket as it's been unusually cool, but in all honesty, I'll take any excuse to bust out the jean jacket as of late.

On an unrelated note, here's a gratuitous picture of my little hambone, Jerome. He doesn't move much and avoids walking but he does love parking it and people-watching, which can only mean one thing--he IS my son.

When the temperatures rise and the grill seems too hot, I always turn to a cold pasta. I whisked together about half a cup of extra virgin olive oil and the juice of two lemons (and a bit of their zest), added a bit of salt, pepper and mixed it with angel hair pasta. Then, I added some haphazardly chopped basil and parmesan cheese and in about the time it took for the pasta to boil, dinner was ready (of course, I had it chill in the refrigerator for a bit first).
What do you love to cook during the summer?

Here are a few snaps of my weekend celebrating a dear friend/co-worker's wedding in Michigan (which was perfect and so much fun). You can follow my journey on instagram here.

Here's some quick snapshots before my weekend starts tomorrow. I'm off to Michigan for a wedding while most of my Chicago counterparts will be at Lollapalooza. To all those heading to Chicago for the music festival, welcome to my fair city! I'll start your tour off right; behind me, you can make out the famed Sears (sorry, I can't call it Willis) Tower, which is one of the many skyscrapers you'll see while watching bands at Grant Park.
Have a great weekend, everyone!

I should be scouring the ridiculous summer sales (fine, I am) but rather, I'm already making lists of fall trends I can't wait to try. I blame it on my day job (we think a season ahead), but the truth is, I have a soft spot for autumn. I love the crisp leaves, the cool air and the fact that it isn't yet winter. Someone snap me out of it, because who am I kidding--I love warm weather, too.

What trends are you looking forward to this fall?
