Happy hump day!
How is your week going so far? Was anyone else up as late as I was watching the live coverage of the results?
Since the election was so divisive, I wanted to keep it light today and talk about something we might all be able to get behind: November’s atmospheric, not political, climate. I personally am loving this fall weather—for those of you that know how much I love the hot days of summer, this might come as a surprise. But it’s been mild enough I’ve been able to get away without having to break out the heavy layers and can still drink wine outside wrapped in a blanket scarf at a vineyard, so I’m a happy camper for now.
Plus can we talk about these leaves?! This backdrop might win as my all-time favorite shoot location.
You just can’t beat the bright red and orange leaves, and I’ve loved seeing them on my daily walks and weekend drives here in Virginia. I have to admit—I’m not looking to the bare-tree days ahead.
Now that our Indian summer has come and gone and fall is here to stay, I’ve been figuring out what my favorite fall pieces are going to be this year. I’ve had this bell sleeve ruffle hem blouse for a little over a week, and worn it at least four times, so I know it’ll be on heavy rotation for the next few months.
Whether I wear it with jeans, like I did here, my favorite crop pants for work, or a festive skirt for the holidays, it seriously goes. with. everything. And it’s that great material that doesn’t cling to you in all the wrong places but also doesn’t wrinkle. #winwin
Another favorite recent purchase are these J Crew Factory Zoe Calf Hair D’Orsay Flats. They are true-to-size, take no time to break in, and add a fun pop to any outfit. I’ve been wearing them both for work and play recently and really feel like I’ve gotten a lot of bang for my buck.
I’d love to know what your fall favorites are for 2016! x

Thanks so much, Amy! xo
I love this look! The ruffles and subtle rips in those jeans are so fun!
Thanks so much Taylor! xo
Those leaves are definitely the perfect backdrop!! Amazing photos! Love this outfit too – I’ve been looking for a ruffled top but always hate how they look on the hanger so I rarely try them on lol This one is so cute though! For fall, I’m loving dark florals!
Thank you so much! Definitely give this one a whirl!
Hooray for fall weather! Believe it or not, we’ve been getting some cooler morning and evening temps in FL too. I love it! I keep telling myself I need to pick up a pair of leopard flats – the ones in your photos are perfect!
Oh that is great! Definitely treat yourself with some leopard flats!
