Navy and Green for Fall


Made in USA: Jeans: James Jeans via Bluefly (similar)  // Belt: Chicago Belt Company c/o // Nails: Essie 'Twin Sweater Set

Imported: Sweater: Gap old // Boots: Bandalino super old (made in USA option)

My favorite season officially begins this weekend. Maybe it was a bit too warm to break out the tall boots this week, but I didn't care. It's fall in my mind and I don't care what anyone else says. I'm looking forward to everything autumn has to offer.

Hot lattes become the default option. Jeans, sweaters, and boots become my daily uniform. Playing with the pups for hours on end in our yard because they can't handle the summer heat (poor little noses don't do well in extreme heat). Dark nail polish in every possible color. Snuggling by the firepit and then coming inside to snuggle some more by the wood stove. Running in capris, long sleeve shirts and finally racing. Bourbon Chase aka a 200 mile bar crawl/odyssey run through the major Kentucky distilleries.  Layering in scarves, blazers, and jackets. Plaid pajama suits became the de facto loungewear. Pumpkin beer, lattes, muffins, rolls and finally decorating pumpkins. Passing out candy to trick or treaters. Football games and October baseball. Apple picking. Endless baking. My best friend's 30th birthday. Jax's 8th birthday. The leaves changing colors. Laughter, laughter, and more laughter. 

I can't wait for all of it. If I could find a place where fall lasted the entire year I'd move there in a heartbeat. This fall weather has even gotten me dressing in colors! Let me just say I've been in mourning all summer and that was the reason for so much black :) 

What are you looking forward to this fall?
