Happy September, loves! Sweet September is one of my favorite months of the year and I'm so excited that it's finally here. I've been spending the last few days digging out my fall decor, snacking on candy corn and starting to plan out all the fun things I want to do this season -- have a bonfire, head up to Flagstaff to see the fall colors, carve pumpkins and so much more. Having my first PSL was actually at the top of my list, but this morning I knocked that one out at 7am with a venti PSL (three pumps, one extra shot of espresso!) and it was DELICIOUS! I may actually go back and get my usual fav later today -- an unsweetened iced coffee with 2-3 pumps of PS in it -- SOO good for those who want a little autumnal flavor in their iced coffee. ;)

This week has seriously flow by! On Monday, we raced over to our favorite orchard after work to snap these photos -- the lightning was SO pretty and I loved seeing a little peek of falls colors up in the trees. In the wee hours of the morning on Tuesday, we had a crazy storm that did all sorts of damage around the Valley -- including knocking the internet out at our office, no biggie, though -- I ended up listening to records and working from all day! Wednesday was the most beautiful day and we had dinner at Joe's Farm Grill for their "Dog Days of Summer." Scott had two of the craziest hot dogs I've ever seen, and I enjoyed my favorite/go-to -- grilled cheese with pineapple slaw and sweet potato fries (YUM!). On Thursday, we celebrated fall with our sweet friends Robert and Christina at their Madewell event. Not gonna lie, I purchased a few pieces (like this AMAZING Transport Tote!) I've been pining over for fall and I can't wait to wear them up in Flagstaff this weekend! 

Outfit Details:
Burgundy Hat (similar!)
Free People Lace Dress (similar & on sale!)
Minnetonka Moccasin Bootie (similar!)

Today after work Scott and I are heading up to Northern Arizona for the weekend! Every year we go to Flagstaff for Labor Day weekend and it's always something I look forward too -- chilly weather, woody forests, the famous Macy's Coffee House and time well spent with my family! I hope ya'll have the best long weekend and don't forget to enjoy a yummy PSL (or two!)!

  1. You're such a doll. :) Love your twirly dress photos so much!

  2. I am SOOOOOOO jealous of your fall! I've traded fall and winter for curries, crazy motorbike riders, islands and monsoons! And I love love love your hat. I'm wondering, how do you wear booties in the AZ heat? Is it because anything below 85 is "cool" to you? I'm starting to get there myself in the Bangkok humid heat!

  3. Happy September, lovey!! Your list sounds SO good and you look gorgeous! Love your hair like this!! xo
