It’s official: We’ve almost made it through the week! This one was a busy one for me at work, but honestly, I’d rather feel a bit overwhelmed than have nothing to do. I’m not entirely sure what the weekend plans are, although I do think my friends and I are heading to a state park in Iowa for a hiking adventure. (Iowa obviously can’t compare to the Utah mountains, but I have the feeling it’s going to be a beautiful hike because of all the changing leaves.)

If I could wear this flannel shirt or one like it almost every day during the cooler months, I would. I think they can be so versatile, either layered under a sweater for a fun take on a preppy look or worn unbuttoned under a cargo jacket with distressed jeans for a slightly grungy look. I went for the super simple today, with light-wash jeans, fringe boots and a new necklace (found in-store at Loft for an additional 50% off — similar one here).

Have a good one, my friends!
