Restaurant Review: Brunch at Cielo Restaurant & Bar

The only thing I think I love as much as I do clothes/shopping is eating. Whether it’s a restaurant or a recipe from pinterest, if the rest of the world is feeling it, I more than likely willing to try it.

The first day of Fall isn’t until Thursday, but the days are already getting shorter and the temperatures a little cooler. I’m having a hard time accepting the fact that Summer is over. I’m not ready for shorter days or cooler temps, BUT I am welcoming fall fashion with open arms. For right now the weather seems to be a little chilly when the sun is down and hot as heck when it’s not. This makes getting dressed that much more difficult when you’re trying to keep warm during your morning commute, but don’t want to sweat like a big at lunch. Today, I thought I’d share some tips on how to transition your wardrobe from Summer to Fall to make getting dressed in the morning a little bit easier.  (more…)
