Fall Foliage, Blue Ridge Parkway {Photography}

It was a bit overcast during our day trip but the leaves were phenomenal nonetheless. I love how vibrant the leaves are at these high elevations. They look like artwork on a canvas. It is just unbelievable how beautiful our planet is. 

Grays

Obviously by now you know my love for grays and blacks. I like basic pieces that can be worn with outfit after outfit and still have a different look. Grays and blacks are the easiest for this, these two colors look so good together and the combinations are innumerable. I highly recommend these OTK boots! They are under $50 and sooo comfy. They also come in two other colors. 

I have been fighting some sort of icky sickness the past couple of days. I haven't a clue what it is but it has left me weak, shortness of breath, and with the worst headache. I definitely didn't lose my appetite though! haha. I think I'm going to the doctor tomorrow, which is an activity that I loathe. I seriously get super nervous. I think it was all the visits I had to make when I had a previous problem. Wish me luck!

Falling for Fall

I got our porch decorated this weekend and love how it turned out. We got most of our items at the local Farmer's Market, including the clay Jack O' Lantern (purchased last year). I recommend your local Farmer's Market for fall purchases because they usually have the best variety and the vendors are always local :) #shopsmall

Tips for decorating your porch for fall: 
*Don't be afraid of color, mix it up!
*Use symmetry, but also use a couple pieces so that the balance isn't perfect. 
*Lay the pumpkins sideways, play with shape. Having them all stand up perfectly can look too staged. 

Ok, the poncho. As soon as I saw it in store I knew I had to have it. It comes in a few other colors and is so warm! I love the length and that the arms are fitted. A definite fall must have!

Fall Grays

Jeans, Loft | Leather Jacket, Lucky Brand. Similar here | Tee, Nordstrom (my favorite tees! 2 for $28!!) | Bag, Givenchy | Bracelet, David Yurman | Booties, old. Similar here $40! & love these!

Sunday was the perfect fall day! The sun was shining, it wasn't too hot and there was just enough chill in the air. The leaves are also starting to change and they. are. fabulous. I was lucky enough to get a few snaps of the changing leaves and can't wait to capture some more of this season's beauty over the next couple of weeks. 

Friday was my old high school's homecoming and my youngest sister won Homecoming Queen! She is the third of us girls to win the title and it was such and exciting moment. I'll share some pics later this week :) 

Thanks for reading and enjoy the week!

Flannel

Happy Hump Day! We are officially in that awkward part of the seasons where it's 50 degrees one day and 80 degress the next. SO ANNOYING and  frustrating when it comes to getting dressed. First world probs. I love a flannel for this time of year, they can be dressed up with faux fur or thrown on with distressed denim for a more edgy look. I personally prefer the edgy look, I added a hat because it was (surprise!) rainy on this day and my hair was (surprise!) a mess. I got this shirt at Old Navy last year but they have some super cute ones this year, too. I love their clothes and prices- you get good quality without breaking the bank!
