Classic Fall Layers

Happy Monday! (How is it already Monday?!)

While the weather in Chicago is still a bit warm, I’m not letting that stop me from breaking out my fall layers. And when it comes to fall layers, the cardigan is the star of the show. I picked up this one last week on a quick (SOLO!) shopping trip. I instantly fell in love with the length, the softness, and the price. And I love that I can wear it through this pregnancy a long after. (Shop more of my favorite fall cardigans at the bottom of the post.)

This tankย is one of my pregnancy staples. When I was pregnant with Harperย I stocked up andย bought one black, one gray and one white.ย I’ve started wearing them all the time again. They’re super comfortable and long enough to cover the booty.

And yes, even though it wasn’t raining out, I still broke out my Hunters. And you guys, I discovered an inexpensive way to polish them so they keep looking shiny and new. Guess what I used?! Olive oil. That’s right. Just put a little on a cloth and rub it on your boots in a circular motion. And done!

Thanks for stopping by! Here’s to a wonderful week ahead …
