Over the weekend, S and I had dinner at my favorite BYOB. Looking back, it was probably was one of my favorite nights of the summer because it was so simple. We shared a tasty French wine we never had, and I ordered my go to  'Taylor Special' dish (I always order the same thing, and I think the wait staff definitely notices). During dinner we vowed that we wouldn't be lazy after dinner, and we would go for a walk with the dogs or


just anything to not be sedentary! And we did. Such a pretty, pretty night. The temperature and humidity fell, and not only was it the most comfortable weather to be outside, but it was motivation to look cute and put a little 'oomph in my routine.

Some notes on the outfit details: I picked up this leopard print jacquard dress from


 a bit ago (50% off, too!) and immediately knew it would be a staple for cooler weather. It is a lightweight piece overall, but the fabric design is intricately made and raised, making it a bit heavier and perfect for a day where there's a breeze in the air. I paired it with a new eternity scarf I got from one of my favorite beach boutiques,


. The bright color of this scarf is what attracted me to it in the first place, and it adds a nice splash of color to an otherwise toned-down, neutral look. My trusty leather jacket adds a bit of edge, but for work I'll probably wear it with a cardigan or blazer. And that's a cinch!
