Happy Monday! 

How was everyone’s weekend? It rained off and on all weekend here and Trevor was on call so we really just relaxed and got some projects done around the house. I am hoping the forecast clears up for this week because it is currently calling for rain 🙁

I am not a big birthday person but this Friday is indeed my birthday and I’m most excited to see friends. I have a few dinners/drinks with girlfriends this week and Trevor is taking me out to dinner on Saturday night while Zain spend the night at my parent’s house for the first time! 

He was supposed to spend the night a few weeks ago but I ended up keeping him here and just getting a babysitter because of time. I am so excited to sleep in on Sunday, even though I’m sure that will be 7am. 

I think everyone is slowly trying to ease into fall, am I right? It always came a little earlier in Chicago (and lasted 4 days) so the fact that it is still blazing hot here randomly doesn’t help. However, I am all in on the cozy sweaters and new fall stuff and I figured you guys are as well. I thought today’s post could somewhat ease us into the idea and this mule is the perfect shoe to do it. 

I’m sure you’ve seen I’ve been pulled toward a lot of mules (flat and heeled) lately and I snagged these as soon as I saw them. They are the perfect block heel to dress up or down and Clarks honestly makes some of the most comfortable soles in the world. Trevor wears them constantly and I have loved seeing their new styles each season. This mule comes in a few colors but I weirdly have been lacking in the black shoe category so I thought these would perfectly fill that void. I was also uber excited when I found out this particular pair has the Cushion Plus™ technology and feels like I’m walking on clouds. It’s nice to have shoes I know I can wear chasing around Zain and out to a nice dinner.

I saw them on Zappos a few weeks ago, ordered them at 9pm on a Thursday and they were here Friday at 2pm. I kid you not. Trevor was like “are those the shoes you ordered last night?” Their delivery has always been amazing and the fastest I’ve seen but this one took the cake. I also love that the shipping is free and you can make returns 365 days a year. After having Zain I sadly now need to order two sizes in every shoe I purchase. I really didn’t think my foot had grown but I may be in denial and it’s been a bit harder to find the right size :/

I paired them with a classic jean and tee combo and threw on my green anorak since it’s one of my fall staples. This is perfect for #momlife or really any life and I’m sure you will see me in a variation of the above all season. Make sure you check out Zappos for all the new Clark styles and let me know what are you guys buying for fall in the comments!

    I love the simplicity and elegance of this outfit! I am kinda ready for fall and navigating towards the same color palette and style. However I’ll miss the warm weather, oof.
