It’s hard to believe its already mid-November. Thanksgiving is right around the corner and it feels like winter is coming faster than we know it. The temperature has finally cooled down after a warm October and we are in the perfect climate for fun fall looks! Puffer vests are one of my go-to fall staples they’re the perfect bridge between being too chilly without a coat and too warm with one.

Our vests kept us perfectly cozy on our walk through the woods. The leaves were so pretty we got up early to see them before heading out on a long day of adventures. Abby was a real champ posing for all these pictures. Sometimes getting the right shot can be tricky but she made it fun and was very patient! I think I may have actually convinced her to start blogging herself…maybe.

For those of you who don’t know, Abby is my roommate. She’s a ray of sunshine. Seriously the sweetest person I know. I am so lucky that she puts up with all my craziness and still chooses to be friends with me day in and day out. I really don’t know what I would do without her.

One thing Abby and I have in common is out love of preppy styles and fun fall looks. This comes in handy because I have an extra closet to look though. Most of the vests I own are from J.Crew and J.Crew Factory.  I love them because they aren’t bulky but still keep you nice and warm. Plus, J.Crew Factory always has the best deals so you don’t have to feel like you’re emptying your wallet. Abby’s navy vest is from J.Crew and mine is actually from T.J.Maxx. I love the red stripes because they give it a fun preppy feel.

I love mixing patterns and colors with vests, like here with stripes and solids. I also like to play around with different shirts and sweaters. Another favorite vest of mine that’s not pictured here is my herringbone print vest from J.Crew, I bought it first a few years ago and wore it all the time until I lost it. I was so bummed when I couldn’t find it, so I was especially glad when I found it on sale at J.Crew Factory.

So many brands are having great sales for the holiday season, most of the items linked above are currently on sale so go check them out! J.Crew, J.Crew Factory and Nordstrom in particular always have the best sales. I rarely pay full price for their clothes which is good because I’m a broke college student.

If you guys have any suggestions about good places to find vests, feel free to comment below! I’m always looking for new places to shop (it’s dangerous).

Fall Reds

One of the best things about fall is all of the color. Red is my favorite color, so naturally it is the hue I gravitate most to in fall. This old colonial farmhouse is such a pretty shade of red. I love the way Abby’s dress and my plaid print pop against it. We stopped here on our way to apple picking to catch a few fun shots.

Hello from the other side…of midterm week.

I’m sorry that I haven’t posted in awhile I am going to try much harder to stay on top of writing and posting. The truth of the matter is I had no idea how much work went into blogging until I started. I am in awe of some of my favorite bloggers and how they manage to constantly come up with amazing new material!

Once I got back to school life got crazy again and blogging had to take a backseat, but now midterms are over and I feel like I can catch a little bit of a breath (finally!). So today I am sharing pictures that I probably should have shared with you guys much earlier, but hey better late than never, right?

Apple picking has always been a huge tradition in my family, my mom used to dress us up every year and make us take pictures. Actually, she still does that…I don’t know why I tried to make it seem like that isn’t still a thing. Even once I went away for school I always knew I was going to wind up back home and up in a tree for my mom to get the best shot. I love fall and all the wonderful traditions that come with it.

This year, I brought along my best friend Abby. We picked apples, ventured into the pumpkin patch, and baked an apple crisp with the fruits of our labor later that night. It was unusually warm for October but the sun was beautiful and we had so much fun.

Lady in Red

This is my first ever blog post, so I guess the best way to start would be to say hello! I am so excited to start sharing little pieces of myself with all of you. From where I travel to my favorite dresses, I can’t wait to show you it all. I love to get dressed up any chance I can and nothing is more fun than a red dress, am I right? This dress is from my favorite British clothing brand, Jack Wills. I am obsessed with all of their styles and love exploring their stores in Chatham, MA and on Newbury Street, in Boston.
