The weather was perfect and because we went on a Friday morning it was really quiet. They don’t actually let you pick apples during the week (only on the weekends) which was fine because we filled up on donuts. I wore the softest sweater dress (it runs a bit oversize, I’m wearing a small) and my trusted Hunter boots. I think sweater dresses are going to be my jam this season. Also, if you haven’t bit the bullet on a pair of Hunter’s yet, this should be your year. I bought my first pair (matte black) six years ago and I still wear them all fall/winter. Charlie looked adorable in his little flannel shirt and UGG boots and dad of course had to match in his own flannel.
Happy Friday, friends! Thanks for all of the great questions this week! What are you up to this weekend? We have zero plans which makes me happy. I think I’m starting to enter full nesting mode. 5 weeks to go until baby boy #2! Grab your coffee and read on for this week’s questions…
Our days are starting to cool down and I can’t help but start to feel that holiday excitement. Not to get ahead of myself but we are taking full advantage of the fall season around here.
Last weekend we visited my family’s home in Wisconsin and the colors were just starting to turn. Webster is always in heaven as we walk around the lake. We visited an apple orchard, took Charlie to a corn maize, made homemade soup, sat by the fire, finally busted out the cozy socks and went for a hike in the woods. It was very quintessential fall and I loved it.

A few weeks ago I decided that I needed some new products to help boost my appearance a bit. I ventured to Nordstrom and spent an hour testing customer favorites from a few different brands and landed on some new products for my makeup bag. I have noticed a huge difference and honestly can’t believe I didn’t jump on the bandwagon earlier (read the reviews of these products online if you need more convincing and you’ll see why). Here are 7 new products that I’m loving…
This homemade pumpkin butter recipe is so easy and delicious that you’ll probably find yourself making multiple batches between now and Christmas. The flavors are so cozy and we’ve been enjoying it on everything from english muffins, apples, pumpkin bread (yes), mixed with oatmeal and even no top of ice cream.
Neutrals are always a good idea. When it comes to shopping I can always justify a good classic item in a neutral color because I know it will be well worth the wear. I mentioned it before but this season I’ve been conscious about the pieces I’m buying to ensure that they can do double duty in my closet (read: work for all types of outfits). With the end of my pregnancy nearing I’m grateful that the temperatures are dropping and I can pull out some fall layers and accessories.
Trust me when I say that this is the coziest sweater you will ever own. Plus it is only $49 making it a no-brainer. I bought a medium to cover the bump but it actually fits perfectly everywhere else. I love the color! It would also look cute with a midi skirt.
