Well guys, it is moving day. We spent all weekend packing our things into boxes and saying our goodbyes. But on the bright side, it finally feels like fall in DC!

We decided to pack everything ourselves but hire a moving company to load, ship, and unload all our things. It will cost more than renting a U-Haul, but it will also save me from premature death.
My friend Marisa threw me a going away party with all my blogger friends on Friday! It was absolutely the best time ever, and I can’t believe I am leaving such a tight-knit and fun group of people. Basically everyone told me they would visit me in Chicago when they said goodbye for the night, so I am going to hold them to it!
I took these photos as part of a contest I was in for a local shopping village called the Rio Washingtonian. They picked 3 bloggers (one in her 20s, one 30s, and one 40s) to style an outfit. We had to choose our outfit from 3 stores! My dress and necklace are from South Moon Under. My hat, bag, and scarf are from Charming Charlie. The earrings and bracelet are from Francesca’s, although you can’t see them that well. And the jacket, umbrella, and booties are my own! I didn’t end up winning, but it was all good fun!
My favorite look last week was from Julie from Ginger Photog!
Julie and I just started following each other, and thank goodness we found each other! Her style is similar to mine – simple yet chic! Her bamboo handle Gucci bag is drool-worthy! I have her shoes in pink although I am now convinced I need them in burgundy too.[inlinkz_linkup id=743767 mode=1]
I love how you are rocking those layers Roxanne. Love the scarf, jacket and hat together 🙂

Aw, how fun that you had a nice going away party. I hope you love it in Chicago – I’ve never lived there, but I like going to visit. 🙂
Love your look. Good luck with the move and the adventures to come in your new city. Thanks for the link up.
You look amazing! I love that burgundy dress and gorgeous bag!

Nice scarf! It is sad that you’re leaving DC but nice to have a new place to visit when we visit :p

That sounds like a fun contest! I don’t know how fall it will feel in Chicago. I live nearby and it has been pretty warm, but it started to cool down this weekend, so I’m hoping more colors begin to appear!
Hope the move goes well!

I love this fall look, and your scarf is so pretty! Good luck with the move! I’ve never been to Chicago but I’m dying to visit!

I never had a chance to say goodbye! Best of luck with your move!

Oh my goodness! Thank you so much girl for picking my look as your favorite! I’m so honored! ? I love, love your look here! That hat is so cute with your outfit. I’ve got several similar hats, but I haven’t gotten to wear them yet this season…it’s still so hot here in Florida! Good luck with your move…hiring a mover was a great idea!
Such a cute outfit, Roxanne! Love the colour combo of burgundy and blue, so fresh for fall! Sending happy thoughts that your move goes well. I know how stressful moving can be, I think you’re right to hire movers to protect your sanity! xx Rox-Anne
An adorable look for fall. I just love all the layers and colors! Best of luck on the move.
You look stunning and I love the playfulness of these pictures, particularly the one where you can see you are splashing around in the puddle.
Good luck with your move! So exciting! Love this look, so fall fabulous!
I love this outfit, when I saw it for the contest—and I voted for you!!
I think it’s totally smart to hire a moving company….there’s still plenty you’ll end up having to do, and you don’t need to kill yourself in the process!!

Thank you for the link up!
Hope you have had great weekend, and good luck with the move! 🙂
