I'm sure you've noticed by now that I cut several inches off of my hair into a 'lob' (apparently it's the thing to do right now), and I'm loving it! My hair doesn't grow super quickly, so growing my hair out for my wedding took quite awhile, but after getting my wish I was ready for something new and fun (and healthy)!

One of my goals after the wedding was to start learning how to cook and to be able to make several home-cooked meals each week (which I've done). My next goal after that was to start in on green smoothies, which I did this past week! I know that that's a pretty simple goal, but these things just do not come naturally to me haha. Fortunately I've loved how they've turned out so far and I'm already getting the habit of making one in the morning to take to work :) Any favorite healthy smoothy recipes for me??

I somehow didn't own a pair of black flats (yes, insane), so I was so happy to find this gorgeous leather Franco Sarto pair at TJ Maxx! The good news is that I found them online for you all as well (I sized down 1/2 size)!
I've also been wearing this leopard scarf a bunch and as always, I've found accessories like this are really the best way to add some interest to your basics and remix your outfits!

Cozy fall evenings are my absolute favorite! I also wanted to share this little centerpiece idea on here because it's SO easy and cute! I just bought around 6 mini pumpkins and arranged them in a glass bowl :)
Now that the weather is cooling off I've found myself craving warm coffee and all I want to do is curl up on the couch with a cup and a book! Too bad work gets in the way of that ;)
Easy but cute outfits like this one have become my weekend go-to when I'm running errands so that I'm still comfy but get to wear some of my casual favorites. This top is actually a sweatshirt and I love how soft and long it is (and the color)! This was snapped on a busy Saturday morning where I got to photograph a precious basketball clinic for special needs kiddos in our school district.
Based on the fact that I've already painted my nails with it twice in the past month, Essie 'Chinchilly' is definitely still one of my top 3 favorite polishes.
This is probably not a big deal to most, but as a taller girl I haven't owned a cute pair of PJ pants in years because I can never find them long enough! I am rejoicing though that I found this stinkin adorable pair at Target that are so cozy (and long enough)!
I couldn't find them online, but just bought them a couple of weeks ago in-store. I love these too!
I snapped this after taking outfit photos one evening because this hat and lipstick are my very favorites at the moment!
AND, an Insta post wouldn't be complete without a picture of my little love, Russell! Russ is somewhere between 6 and 7 months now (I tell him every day to stop growing) and he's still as cute as ever! Unfortunately, he's learned that he can jump up on our kitchen table, and is also in a very destructive phase at the moment. Much to my chagrin, this means that cute decor is still not in the cards.
Thanks so much for reading! As always, I would love for you to keep up with my blog and everyday life via Instagram at @jacylenore!
I'll have an outfit post for you tomorrow :)
