After the rainiest summer, we are seriously having the most gorgeous fall and I’m loving every minute of it! It’s been warm and sunny with a hint of coolness in the air – and frosty mornings have had me pulling out my gloves a few times already! The leaves have turned beautiful golden yellow and are starting to fall from the trees, as are the apples in my back yard, of which I have WAY more than I know what to do with. After Emmylou wakes up from her nap, we’re going to deliver a few bags to the neighbours, but that’s honestly a drop in the bucket… haha.
We had a very happy and busy fall weekend over here. Saturday morning I got my hair done (it was much needed and I savoured every moment with an iced coffee and magazine in hand), then we shot the photos for this post. Saturday night Zach went out for a ‘guys night,’ so naturally I spent the evening on the couch – eating sweet potato fries, watching Real Housewives, and doing a bit of work. It was bliss. Sunday we went to a charity event at which Zach (with several of his co-workers) pulled a full sized air plane and I took photos (because trust me, no-one wants me as a team member when in involves an activity that takes upper body strength). It was a great event – Emmylou got her face painted, there were food trucks and a bouncy castle, and a couple of our friends met us there with their baby girl who I got to hold and swoon over while we waited for our macaroni and cheese to be ready. There is nothing better than a sunny fall weekend spent with good food, good friends and time to relax!
This outfit is quintessential fall for me. A cozy turtleneck sweater in cream – one of my favourite neutrals, a simple pair of loafers, and a brown crossbody (similar here, here). I’m also wearing rose gold coloured hoop earrings, but it’s hard to see in the pics). I love this outfit for a fall Saturday spent out and about, but it’s also totally work appropriate so I plan to get a lot of use out of it. When the weather gets a bit cooler, I can see myself pairing it with booties (like these, or these), a hobo bag (love this Matt & Nat one and will just daydream about this Kate Spade one for a bit), and some stockings. Or even leggings and my Hunters for a more casual look!
Happy Monday friends! Cheers to a great week ahead!
