Today is one of those last few days in autumn where you’re tricked into thinking its summer. I’m soaking up the warm weather one last time before the temperature really starts to drop. I also figured I could squeeze in one summer outfit before I pull out my sweaters and boots. J
I have become entirely obsessed with men's shirts in the past few months. I love to belt them and wear them with leggings, skinny pants or skinny jeans. This summer I wore them with shorts and girly details.

The Mustard Seed is a really cool little shop in downtown Lake Forest, IL. Every item is a fair trade item that was handmade by someone in countries like Thailand, India, Kenya, etc. Everyone who "works" at the shop is there volunteering their time without being paid. Here's more from the website:
"One in five people around the world struggles to survive on less than $1 a day. We at the Mustard Seed – a fair trade shop inc., partner with cooperatives and artisans to provide a market for their creations and to pay a fair wage and/or to allow the artisans to set the price for their products. Most are women working at home or in small groups. Many are able to continue indigenous cultural crafts because of a growing appreciation overseas for their work. Many artisans are HIV positive or widows supporting families. Children are often the beneficiaries of sales of these items."
