The Essentials: October 2014

Time to start building up the wardrobe that will inevitably protect me from Polar Vortexes but not drown me in a sea of bubble jackets.

Looks like I got the cheetah bug too - personally, I think cheetah printed shoes can make almost any outfit pop! But hey, that's just me. Besides the cheetah fascination there is also a ton of statement pieces, not to be worn all at the same time of course. I'm also considering new items to work out in and comfy knits to sleep in - fall has always resonated the start of a new running season and extra snooze time.
