Apple Picking

Hello Friends!

We had a picture perfect weekend and decided to head to our local apple orchard.  It truly felt like a Hallmark moment.  Beautiful orchard, gorgeous weather and the girls had so much fun.

The weather has been perfect for the apples this year.  The trees were so full of apples, the branches were literally reaching for the ground.  We enjoyed a hay ride through the orchard's nursery and learned all kinds of fun facts.  We'll definitely be making this an annual event and I'll be crossing this off my Fall Bucket List.

Trend: Chambray on Denim

Hello Friends,

Trend Alert!  Have you seen a lot of chambray lately?  This really isn't new, we've seen this great, versatile trend for quite some time.  One thing I thought I'd never see, and never like is Chambray with denim.  I've always felt like this had the jump suit feel to it.  Like wearing head to toe denim.  It just felt more like a uniform than it did style, to me.

I'm here to say now that this is a fun, new trend.  I do really like it.

Let's Get Physical

Hello Friends!

Are you getting the cool fall weather that we are in Iowa?  I LOVE this time of year and it has me already thinking of getting cozy.  I love comfy clothes as much as I love my skinny jeans.  The thought of getting cozy with a book or good movie and a fire, has me thinking about this great Gap Fit Line.  I'm not one to put a lot of thought into my workout clothes (typically a t-shirt and shorts), but I do still love to be stylish in my lounge wear.  

Let's Get Physical


I'm loving these cozy zip up sweatshirts and crews.  They are perfect paired with yoga pants, a novel and the fireplace crackling (insert laugh here as ours does not crackle, just a flip of the switch and it turns on and off).  I will be adding this to my "Oh What I Want" list ( you know me and lists) and watch for some sales.

How about you?  What do you like to wear for cozy days in?


Hugs,
     Trish

Fall Bucket List

Hello Friends!

Are you a list person like I am?  I love lists. I mean I really LOVE lists.   I make them for my daily to-do's, travel, shopping, you name it.  I love that feeling of crossing something off of it.  This very action has a way of making me feel accomplished and productive. 

Here's my first edition of my "Bucket List".  This is a new seasonal list of all things I want to accomplish within the season.  I am borrowing this adorable idea from Jenny.  She created a fun download for her readers to edit and play with.  I made my with my own little twist but definitely give credit to Jenny for the inspiration.  Thank you.



What would you put on your list for this season?


Hugs,

Go-To Jacket

Hello Friends!

Do you have a go-to jacket in your closet?  The one that goes with just about anything?  This purple CAbi jacket is mine.  I wear it with tanks, tees, turtlenecks and crew necks.  It can be dressed up or down with ease and is a color that works with just about anything under the rainbow.

For the love of sherbert

Hello Friends!

Mother Nature is playing serious games with me.  I'm the type of person who gets the fever, gets the itch, call it what you want but I dive in.  Once the weather turned cool, I was all about my scarves, cardigans and jeans.  In Iowa, the weather ALWAYS seems to be up or down and all around.  Today is no different.  The heat is back on outside and the air is back on inside.  I'm guessing this the end, but one just never knows.



[Pants:  Target, Tank:  Gordman's, T-Shirt, Ballet Flats & Bag:  Old Navy,

The last few days of summer brought out my love of sherbert.  Although my family can eat ice cream year round, there's nothing better than a bowl of sherbert on a hot day.  This tank reminds me of this summer love.  I'm happy to get another hot day to enjoy the orange, pink and blush of this cute tank.

How do you like to enjoy the last few days of summer?

Pumpkin Monogram Love

Hello Friends!

.
I'm starting to get a serious fall itch.  The weather is cooler (that is until today) and the stores have brought out the Halloween candy.  Yes, that's right!  We are still mid September and the entire side of a grocery store aisle is stocked to the gills.  Although I may be a bit shocked by the rushing of our season, I'm happy.

I love fall for the colder weather, the warm colors and Halloween has to be one of my favorite holidays.  So let's get on with it!!!!

I'm in LOVE with these monogrammed pumpkins.  I've been spying them for a while and I think the time is now.  After all, if the grocery stores can start getting out fall, then so can I.

Of course, these awesome DIY pumpkins came straight from Pinterest.  It's my go to place for inspiration.  Of course with our little ones, we'll do the traditional pumpkin carving but I think I want one special, monogrammed punkin' for myself my family.  Stay tuned, my pumpkin will be featured and will hopefully look just as classy as these.

Cents of Style: reese witherspoon

Hello Friends!

Do you love celebrity street style as much as I do?  This look is so easy, breezy and casual that I had to see if I could recreate it with some of my favorite stores.

I love this look from top to bottom.  This pink, pointed ballet shoe adds a touch of femininity to her preppy look.  Reese always has a great look that's never over done.  I often get inspiration from her and a few others I'll be sharing with you.  How about you?  Which celebrity style do you often spy?
