Saturday at the Pumpkin Patch

Blouse: Target, Flannel and Shorts: American Eagle: Boots: Macy's
I'm not at all unique when I say that fall is my favorite time of the year. This fall has fortunately and  unfortunately a brought a lot of activity. While there have been definite stressful times, I have also had some amazing experiences (more on those in future posts!).

Recently one of my best friends came back for homecoming and so we took a trip to the pumpkin patch (because without pumpkins, does fall even exist?). It was my first time pumpkin picking since I was a kid. I had forgotten however how heavy pumpkins were, so in these photos I was struggling to hold them. I also didn't realize how expensive a pumpkin could be so my best friend and I bought small ones from the gift shop lol.

I will miss fall, and have been reluctant to be excited for Christmas since that means the end of fall. However, with the end of Thanksgiving I'm finally getting into the Christmas mood- so stay tuned for the next month full of holiday content!

Birthday at the Vineyard


It's been a busy, but full, season. One of the things that has made it full has been celebrating big moments in my friends's lives. One of my best friends recently turned 21, and so we took her out to one of our favorite vineyards to celebrate. The girls in these photos have been some of my best friends since my first year of college. What I love about our friendship is that all of us are very different. We come from different families, cultures, and all have unique personalities. On paper, we definitely should not have come together. We met through our first year Bible study small group. For the first couple months of Bible Study, we were apprehensive of each other, but by the end of the year we were calling each other sisters. Our relationships show just how powerful of a welder God can be in relationships. It's bittersweet to think about the past four years- we'll be going our separate ways soon, but it's comforting to know that we can always come back to each other for love, laughs, and comfort.

Warm Southern Nights

Tank and Shoes: Target, Skirt: Nordstrom's, Necklace: L. Mae Boutique

I had these photos taken when I was was working in South Carolina. My neighborhood had a golf course that featured a beautiful marsh walk that became my favorite spot to walk in the evenings. From it you could not only watch the birds fly overhead, but also hear the ocean. I also loved how the walkway to the marsh was lined with huge trees draped with Spanish moss (something I really miss seeing). 

One thing any southerner knows is that the hot summer weather lingers well into the official fall season. I've had this skirt since high school, and while I don't wear it too often, I love how it can be worn in spring, summer, and even early fall. Back at school, I like wearing this outfit to church with a jean jacket. The see-through lace overlay is not only timeless but makes the piece stand out.

Like my last post, these photos were taken by my roommate who writes a really cool blog! Check it out if you haven't already!

A Dusty Rose Shirt and a Sky Blue Door

Blouse: Marshall's 
This summer, I finally hopped on board the off the shoulder train. This shirt is a nice blend of comfy and cute: the cut and floral embroidery dresses up an outfit, while its cotton fabric makes it nice and soft. I also love how the blouse can transition into the early fall. When it's warmer outside I tuck the shirt in high waisted shorts, and I can't wait to experiment wearing it with jeans and ankle boots when the weather cools.

The day these photos were taken, my roommate and I were driving around our town looking for cute locations to serve as photo backdrops. We found this cool bright blue door next to our favorite ice cream shop. It goes to prove that you don't need a fancy location for a great backdrop- just explore your own neighborhood!

My roommate also runs a fashion blog! Check it out here!
