simple


| Dress: c/o Ivy and Blu | Jacket: BCBG | Heels: Lulus |

Are you guys sick of these amazing Ivy and Blu dresses yet? Nope? Cool, me either! 
I wore this outfit to church last Sunday and made sure to throw on a jacket because it was chilly! It's a pretty simple outfit but sometimes it's nice to have a no fuss outfit. Being in the blogging world I feel like I have to have a million bracelets, a necklace, a clutch, a scarf, lipstick, etc., etc...but nine times out of ten I don't feel like piling all of that stuff on. So here's to a really simple, real outfit!

It's so feminine and romantic, I'm pretty much obsessed if you can't already tell! It's from an online boutique called Little Mistress. They have some super cute items like this tartan cardigan and this embellished top, both perfect for fall or winter.

pumpkin patchin


A few weeks ago Matt and I went to a local pumpkin patch and it was so much fun! The pumpkin patch is located right behind the Jordan River Temple which makes for a pretty amazing backdrop. It was the most gorgeous night and the weather was perfect! Matt was seriously like a kid in a candy shop!! He loves Halloween and pumpkins so he was super excited to actually pick our pumpkins straight from the root. There were so many beautiful colored pumpkins to choose from, we got a few white, pale orange, and regular orange pumpkins. We just carved them this past weekend and it was so much fun! 
Fall is one of my favorite times of the year because there are so many different fun activities for us to choose from for our date night. Pumpkin patches, corn mazes, haunted houses, we love going to them all! We'll definitely be going back next year for some more pumpkins!!

                                                         

happy halloween



Halloween is one of my favorite holidays because I love all of the fun things you get to do around the holiday. Pumpkin patching, pumpkin carving, pumpkin baking, pretty much if it has anything to do with pumpkin I'm there! I love Halloween and thought it would be fun to put together a Halloween inspired outfit. This outfit has orange and black but not in an overly cheesy way, I actually really wish I had everything in this outfit!! It would be perfect to wear to a haunted house or a pumpkin carving party!

senior pictures



| Varsity Cardigan: c/o Aeropostale | Plaid Shirt: J Crew Factory | Jeans: Gap | Boots: Old Navy |

While taking these pictures, my husband was making fun of me because he thought these looked like senior pictures. Umm rude dude! But hey if he thinks I look like I'm in high school then I'll take that ;) I love layering during the fall and this plaid shirt I bought last fall is perfect for underneath sweaters or cardigans. And how cute is this boyfriend varsity cardi? It's from the Bethany Mota line at Aeropostale and I love the oversized look, it's so comfy and cozy! I wore my distressed jeans and booties to complete this fall ensemble, they're kind of my go to pieces lately. What are some of your fall favorites when it comes to layering?
