autumn


Cardigan & tank: Urban Outfitters
Skirt: I made it!
Boots: Steve Madden
Necklace: Anthropologie
Pumpkin: Safeway

Anyone else just *pee your pants* excited that fall is here? 


I don't know how long you've been reading this little blog, but last year, Chase & I were overseas living on an island in the Indian Ocean -- no autumn -- and it was so hard! I think seasons are beautifully & perfectly created by our Creator and are meant to be experienced in their highest capacity. Growing up in Texas, we had cold and hot...which is one of the many reasons I LOVE Colorado! 



The sun is setting earlier, the weather is getting cooler, the mornings are crisp, pumpkins are outside of grocery stores, mustard & rust hues are adorning more and more outfits, people's Saturdays are consumed with college football (whoop!), scarves are being wrapped around necks, and boots are being worn on the daily. 




love.

*pumpkins & candy corn: safeway
vase: vintage
bowl & mug: anthropologie
chair: west elm
pine cones: tree 
leaves changing: God

(i apologize for this. i'm feeling a bit silly)

  10. I'm so jealous of the fall weather you are experiencing in Colorado. This probably comes as no surprise, but it's still hot in Austin, Texas. Ugh! I bought a new pair of boots I am dying to wear. Anyway, enjoy the beautiful weather/color palette.

  11. I love it all. I just moved to CA from OR and there is NO fall here. :( I am terribly homesick for fall.

    That skirt is AMAZING! Would you consider making another for a bloggy friend? I totally intend on dressing in colors of fall even if the weather here doesn't cooperate!

  16. It's very comforting to see you don't have black boots...I have one pair that I hardly wear. I love brown boots and they're what go with my wardrobe. Gosh, I love fall and wearing boots!
    LOVE that skirt too :)

  18. I love that you say y'all so much! I thought you were a native Colorado gal, so I love hearing you've got southern roots. I am yearning for constant cooler temps so I don't regret wearing boots at 2pm!

    totally stealing/using your outfit for inspiration for me tomorrow! xoxo Bekah
