Fall is for Bomber Jackets + Pumpkins

    There is something so peaceful about fall.  Amidst the daily chaos of presentations, meetings, bedtime routines, and social events, all of this change goes on outside and all of a sudden there is complete transformation of the colors outside and the crispness of the air.  I love the changing of season, which is the main reason why I love New England (ask me in January, I might have a different opinion!).
   Some family traditions of mine growing up were picking out the perfect pumpkin and getting all the cousins together to have a pumpkin carving contest.  Gavin will have to wait a little longer for the carving part but we had a blast visiting the local farm to pick out the perfect pumpkins.  As for an outfit, I wanted to be comfy yet stylish and the bomber jacket is this fall's must-have layering piece.  This entire look was under $100, from head to toe!

Plum lips + a Cozy Sweater

September in New England is the perfect weather.  Chilly mornings but warmer, breezy afternoons and so many fall festivals and pumpkin patches.  I tend to stretch my summer clothes as long as possible to transition slowly into fall attire.  I love a cozy sweatshirt with jean shorts for a casual transitional look.  This particular sweater feel as cozy as a hoody but looks a little more chic than your average sweatshirt.

LCD (Little Colored Dress)

   The most versatile dress most of us own is the LBD (little Black Dress) but do you own a favorite Little Colored Dress (LCD)?  You should!  It's for those events that you dare not wear black (or white) such as the amazing outdoor wedding I attended (and photographed) at The Greer Tree Farm in Griswold, CT.

   There is something about outdoor venues that compels me to wear bright, contrasting colors so I went through my collection of solid colored dresses and settled on this bold, magenta cocktail dress that I paired with a statement necklace.  Do you have a go-to LCD?

Ever After,

P.S. the drink options were bomb!  I stuck with the Porch Rockers which were a concoction of Bourbon, Cynder Liquor, Tea syrup, and Orange.
