Dressing in Transition

Jen-Pinkston-Cafe-Stella-1-1

Oh transitions!  If you were over on Camille Styles yesterday, then you know I am in the middle of a couple of them right now.  First of course is my deep desire for some cold weather around here!  Luckily, we have been greeted by some chilly mornings and evenings these past couple of weeks so I have started incorporating a few fall essentials along with my summer staples.  Finally!  Hooray for October!

The seasons aren’t the only things in transition, though.  My pants no longer comfortably button so if you see me in pants, trust that I am now wearing one of these!  (Which, by the way, is a godsend!)  Meanwhile, I’m not quite to the point of fitting into maternity clothes just yet so I am having to get extra creative in my closet.  I have been living in my button down shirts lately.  I thought this jacket was a good investment since I can wear it throughout pregnancy and also after.  I will never tire of wooly plaids and interesting tartan prints this time of year.  They are so classicly autumn!  These army green chinos were great this summer on vacation when we were exploring China and are still a great transition pant for this in-between weather.

Aaron has been traveling lately and I have been making more dates than usual with my girlfriends.  I am relishing conversations with my favorite gals over quick happy hours and long dinners at places like Cafe Stella, as you see here.  Open air, beautiful fall light, and delicious food.  What more could a girl ask for? Cold weather and pants that fit? I kid 😉
