Fall Time in Utah


Fall- everything about it is so magical! It was so fun being in Utah for a few days. The weather was cool, but not freezing, the leaves in the valley were all still vibrant colors, and everything was GOLDEN. ✨

Fall Favorites 

  • Baking pies & cookies & pumpkin bread
  • Football games 
  • Sweaters & sweatshirts 
  • Hot cocoa
  • Family & friends 
  • Corn mazes
  • Being cozy indoors
  • How earth gets so beautiful

I realize that this is the most unoriginal list ever, but it was still fun to write because it brings back so many memories.

What a great weekend w family and close friends! I would highly recommend Utah in the fall.

XOXO,

Fall Fashion 2017

In honor of NYFW, which is full steam ahead, I decided to do a little fashion post of my own with my favorite fall trends. On a side note, I like a lot of the fashion shows in New York, but I also think a lot of them have some ugly pieces for a lot of money…. haha. I do love the creativity and seeing all the fabrics and patterns, however!

So, if I were to describe my own style, I think I would tend to gravitate towards more classic pieces (less money because they’ll be in style for a longer time) with a modern twist. Those probably aren’t even the correct words, but you know, for those of us who aren’t professional fashion designers, hopefully that makes sense.

Here are some of my favorite items going into fall 2017:

Chunky Sweaters under $25

 

Overall Dresses under $60

Loafers under $50

What trends are you liking this fall? This will be my first fall in Northern California. I don’t know what to expect, but I’m excited about it.
XOXO,

Our First Thanksgiving 


Happy Thanksgiving 2016!!! Who had an amazing Thanksgiving? Looks like all y’all did from the looks of Instagram. ? I love how much happier we are around the holidays. I think it’s because the focus shifts off ourselves and onto other people & onto Jesus Christ.

My first Thanksgiving married to Nick has me thinking of all of my blessings, specifically all the blessing that marrying him has brought into my life. Married life really is the best & I so lucked out with him. 

Also, I have this little thing I have done by myself every year. On Thanksgiving in all of my prayers, I try to not ask for one thing- just thank Heavenly Father for all of my blessings. Nick started with me this year and it is kind of fun. Try it! Does anyone else have any traditions for Thanksgiving?!

Xoxo,
