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?!

Fall Things ?

Happy fall- I can’t believe Thanksgiving is 2 weeks away from today.  Soooo excited to be with family and stuff my face! Today, I wore a burgandy midi dress from Forever 21 that is so comfortable & a giant scarf. I also whipped out this braid to get my bangs out of my face for the day. Since fall is in full swing, I made a list of my fall favs this year.

All Things Fall in 2016

  • Giant scarves that are more like blankets, obviously.
  • Red Starbucks cups for hot cocoa. Have you seen the new ones? They’re adorable.
  • Over-the-knee boots. I just got a pair & can’t wait to rock them.
  • Apples. Our Fruit of the Month just came from Harry & David full of delicious apples! ? 
  • Mauve everything. 
  • Pumpkin patch visits. (See my previous post)
  • Chilly weather. Dallas tried to feel included in the cold front this last week, but just can’t play in the big leagues. Not complaining though because I don’t do cold weather. ?
  • Fall football. 
  • Colorful leaves. Again, our leaves will probably change around Christmas, but I’ve loved seeing everyone’s fall leaves pics!
  • Candles. We constantly have them burning in our house and they smell amazing.
  • Baking. I’m going to have to do a pie or two again this year.
  • Blankets. The softer and bigger the better to stay cozy.
  • Family. Everyone tend to focus more on family around the holidays. Something I love. 

Xoxo,
