If I could encompass fall into one outfit, it might be this one! This dress doesn't look like much online, but blessedly I saw it in person first and the color palette just stole my autumn-craving heart! It does run very short--I'm 5'3" with a long torso and my usual size small was basically a t-shirt! I sized up to a medium not expecting a huge change in length and ended up loving it. The sleeves are a bit baggier as a result, but I'll take it!

Do you ever just see a color palette or pattern you can't get over? I've had a black floral dress in my wishlist forever but just couldn't find the right one. I needed it to dress up or down and didn't want it to feel goth or heavy. This one finally met the mark and I can't wait to style it with black tights and accessories when it finally cools off! What an Indian summer we're having!





Did I mention this cute location yet? We shot these pictures outside of Ellbee's General Store in Wentzville, MO! It's the cutest little old fashioned general store with a stunning array of unique candies and tasty treats, as well as darling home decor and gifts. The kids both got a bag of candy (old-fashioned, by the pound!), I finally got to try my first ever macaron (spoiler: I loved it!), and Preston got his daily coffee fix (which I may have borrowed for pictures...thanks, babe)! I definitely need to come back to check out their fully stocked soda fountain! We love finding little local stops like this to check out before church. If you're local to the area, I'd love to send you more recs and invite you to church! We go to First Baptist Church Wentzville and love our church family there.






OUTFIT DETAILS
Floral Babydoll Dress // Asymmetrical Flats (Free People Dupes!) // Wide Brim Fedora // Cognac Crossbody Satchel (splurge similar, save similar) // Lipstick

I actually planned to wear this outfit to a fall festival after this, but the heat came barreling in when we got out of church, so we had to go home to change. As soon as it finally cools off and gets crisp, I'll be wearing this on repeat. I can't wait to style it again for y'all in darker hues!

I'm so excited that fall festival season is upon us, even if it still feels like Fourth of July. Being surrounded by pumpkins and cozy crafts is my favorite way to spend a weekend, and I love taking the kids to enjoy local fare and free activities. The food trucks aren't bad either....


Transitional Sundress for Fall

It's finally pumpkin season, even if it doesn't feel like it. I found this Nietzsche quote quite fitting for the current weather/season situation:

"I notice that autumn is more the season of the soul than of nature."





OUTFIT DETAILS

Even though we're fighting soaring temps and humidity levels, I'm still ready for the fall season with muted tones of earthy greens and rich tans. I bought this dress simply because I love the color and it was comfortable, but it has come in so handy transitioning my wardrobe to a more autumnal palette without being too heavy.




I had the opportunity to visit Eckert's Orchard in Versailles, KY a few weekends ago and couldn't resist a few quick snaps in the blossoming pumpkin patch. I'm not counting this as our official yearly pumpkin patch visit, not that I ever limit our trips to just one per year, but it was a really nice sneak peek to my favorite season that really boosted my mood. Everyone talks about seasonal effective disorder when it comes to drab winter weather, but I truly believe I get a few symptoms during those last weeks of summer, when I'm yearning for a cozier atmosphere but can't beat that dreadful heat.



OUTFIT DETAILS

I'm looking forward to a new season full of lots of changes that I can't wait to share with you all soon. I've been a little MIA around here lately but I promise it's for a good reason and really hope to have good news to share in the coming weeks! I'm mostly looking forward to the comfort of family time that comes with Thanksgiving and the Christmas holiday season. What about you?
