Midterm Madness

Another thing I love about fall (you just know October is going to be “I Love Fall” month over here)? Cute fall jackets. Like this little number that I picked up at Winners (it’s like TJ Maxx) on my trip to Edmonton last fall. Love it, love fall.




What I don’t like about fall is midterms – my students wrote one recently and I am up to my eyeballs in grading … teaching about ancient Greece is pretty fun, grading exams is not.

I also am bowled over by Aymeline Valade in Harper’s Bazaar Spain’s "Gucci Through the Years" shot by Txema Yeste and styled by Juan Cebrian. Wowza.

got to love those mile long slits, hehe.

enjoy your fall jackets while you can, their time is always so short lived!

I am loving the way you styled your hair here and am glad for some cooler weather so I can wear some of my fall jackets.

Hope you work through the stack of midterms quickly!

We dislike writing them as much as you dislike grading them I'm sure :)
I love this jacket, what a great find, so perfect for fall. I have a serious jacket addiction, I'm pretty sure I own at least 10

The jacket looks like an amazing find! Super versatile! Sometimes TJ Maxx has the best things, I gotta go in there more often! (Unfortunately, we don't have Winners in the U.S.)

I love cute fall jackets too, I've seen so many that I want and can't afford. I love the pale blue color of this jacket.

Good luck on grading, I can imagine it must be a daunting task.

Love your jacket, very pretty, also your hair looks gorgeous. I totally love it.
That gold Gucci dress is amazing, of course for a tall girl.
Well, I love Gucci, they always have collections that satisfy the taste of a diverse group of women, not only the tall skinny type and always so so glamorous!
Have a happy Friday.
