December 9, 2013


We officially have 12 days left of fall and I can hardly believe it. This fall has brought wedding plans galore, finding joy in pumpkin spice americanos, and lots of moments spent exploring the beauty that is The Orchard. This fall was mild at the most, but I still enjoyed bundling up on those days when the temperature dipped down and left us with a cool breeze.

This fall I found comfort in my favorite light layers, midi and ankle boots,  and a rose gold watch. Since starting to post my outfits way back in 2010, I've enjoyed looking back on the years and seeing how my style has changed (or hasn't in many ways). From then to now, I'm still into lots of layers, boots, and jewelry, but this fall I've felt a little more refined and office ready. While some of my daily office wears haven't made it to my blog, I feel confident in saying that my new surroundings definitely keep me wanting to polish up my style. There's nothing wrong with that, right? Right!

Winter brings upon a very special time of year, and this year's chilly season holds a time in my life that I'll cherish for years to come. Now are the days where we get to say, "We're getting married next month," and we get to practice calling each other "husband" and "wife." This winter is going to be one for the books, and I can't wait to be his wife.

 To top off the fall season, Scott and I had a perfect weekend together working on wedding plans, Christmas shopping, going out for breakfast and brunch,  eating dinner at home, and watching Christmas movies on ABC Family. Scott hasn't had a weekend off where he wasn't working somewhere else in over a year, so these past two days were well deserved and extremely appreciated. I've caught myself swooning over him so many times this weekend, especially when he was trying on wedding bands. Sigh!
