Love is a Ruthless Game

Top: Target, Shorts: Urban Outfitters, Loafers: Target, Hat: Target 

"Love is a Ruthless game, unless you play it good and right," from "State of Grace" is quite possibly one of my favorite lyrics from a Taylor Swift song ever (and trust me, I love every line of every song). Derek and I are trying to readjust into this idea that we don't get to see each other every night after work now that I moved two hours away. He visited a little more than 2 weeks ago and I'm strongly looking forward to a full weekend with him here in Philly. I love when he gets to visit and we can get a small glimpse into what life may be like for us if we get the opportunity to live together one day. Yesterday was 4 years and 5 months (ha, I usually don't count out every month, I promise) and the idea of living together one day is becoming much more of a reality, even if it isn't for another year or two. But then again, I don't want to jinx it. ;) 

This outfit is basically my new go-to for Fall. I picked up these shorts from a Labor Day sale at Urban a few weeks ago and have already gotten plenty of wear from them. The color is perfect for Fall and it transitions well for the new season. Lately I can't get enough of neutrals, maybe it's the whole being in the city once again. I just want to wear black and shades of browns. 

And I'm obsessed with hats once again, I remember my freshman year of college I was obsessed with beanies and would wear them all the time during the Fall months, now I can't get enough of these types of hats. Are there any new Fall trends you're obsessing over?

  5. It's funny how we go back to something we haven't worn in a while... I just love hats on you, Chelsea! They fit your head so nicely, buwahaha. :D

    Those purple shorts are way cool. *___* I love how you made such a simple outfit so effective!

  6. Purple shorts and gold flats = the best combination. I've done the pseudo-long distance thing as well, so I feel your pain. We live together now, so I hope it all works out for y'all as well.
