the highway signs say we're close

the highway signs say we're close outfit post title

Just another manic Monday huh? I wish it was Sunday!
No not really, my weekend was exhausting, especially Sunday when I went to the flea market to sell some stuff.
I was a bit stupid - I had a little kitchen party on Friday with some people and didn't get much sleep. So on Saturday I wanted to go to bed earlier - which didn't work because we met some interesting people and I couldn't resist spending the night talking and drinking with them. Hence on Sunday I had to get up and go to the flea market after only two hours of sleep. Phew, zombie much?!
It was nice on the market though and I was able to get rid of some more stuff I didn't need anymore.
My outfit screams "Autumn!!!" doesn't it? I am so glad I can dig out all my cozy big warm cardigans again! This one in the photos is one of my favourites, the ethno pattern and asymmetrical shape make it look like a comfy blanket. And the short leather jacket over the long cardi is such a nice contrast. I saw this in an older Flashes of Style outfit post on Pinterest the other day and totally had to try it. And it rocks, perfect layering for rainy cloudy days.
Also it's time for my beloved boots again, yaayy! I love these light brown ones to bits because they are so versatile and simple.
Oh how I love these dark and cold September nights: I'm here at my desk with a cup full of Swiss Miss goodness, wrapped up in a fleece blanket, dimmed light, music playing in the background, blogging - a cozy night at home couldn't be better.
Have you already switched to autumn mode? What are your plans for this season? Maybe something nice like going to the pumpkin patch, trying new recipes for homemade soups or cakes? Baking is another thing I love about autumn/winter - summer ist just not right for baking sessions with the hot oven and all.
I can't wait for tomorrow to bake some chocolate pudding muffins for a friend's birthday! :)

What have you been up to?
Have a good week!
