It’s finally time for the weekend, we made it! This weekend in the mountains is supposed to be a beautiful weekend, and the fall colors are supposed to be at their peak. So get ready to go exploring pick the last of the apples and get your pumpkin to carve. In the mountains the weather can change in an instant and the higher the elevation the colder it is. For any activities I suggest wearing multiple layers. A light shirt, a cardigan or button up, a coat and a scarf. All of these are easy to remove or add in an instant. Have fun this weekend loves!.

Fall I love you! Gilmore Girls I love you! Luke Danes I love you! When you mix all of them together you get this #ootd.
If you didn’t know I have a slight obsession with Gilmore Girls. I grew up on the show. There were many life lessons learned from the show like flannel never goes out of style and don’t throw you life away for a boy unless he has a motorcycle. When I found this shirt from Urban Tee Farm that included the important male characters from Gilmore Girls, I fell in love. I instantly started planning outfits around this basic shirt. I threw on a fun fall colored skirt and flannel for my morning cup of pumpkin spice. This outfit of the day is the perfect mix of texture, layers, fabrics and quirkiness for hitting up your local coffee shop or diner. It’s even better if you have a cynical, baseball cap wearing waiter to assist.
And this fall outfit is why I love fashion; why I love getting dressed. Styling your daily outfits doesn’t have to be boring or mundane. It’s okay to mix textures, patterns and lengths. It’s okay to wear something that is quirky because it adds personality. It’s great to wear something (that’s not always old) that brings up memories..

It’s officially scarf season! And anyone who knows me, knows I love scarfs. I will wear them year round but love chunky knits for fall and winter. Yes, I love scarfs because they keep me warm, but I also love scarfs because they are easy to throw on with any outfit and take the outfit a little further. Throwing on a scarf over a sweater (chunky or not) makes the whole #ootd just a little more chic. With scarves you have endless possibilities. They come in different patterns, materials and most of them can be styled several different ways.
I have fallen in love with scarves from Dottie Q. Not only are they in beautiful knits, but the colors are just perfect. I love this grass color that I have since green is every where for Fall fashion. Of course you can get your regular style infinity scarf from Dottie Q but she offers something a little more exciting, a scarf necklace. This scarf (styled above) can be worn several different ways; we all know I love something that can be styled numerous ways. The scarf can be worn long with the wrap part at the nape of the neck or showing for a textural view. The scarf can be worn layered just like you would a necklace. You can take half of the scarf and loop it around your neck. Wearing the scarf long and layered actually allows for you to wear necklaces for an even more layered and textural look. Or you can double the whole scarf for a bundled up look. The possibilities are endless with this scarf.
Dottie Q scarves are all handmade and available on Etsy or on her website. She also offers boot socks and hand muffs. All of her pieces are as eco-friendly as possible, and she uses recycled mailing supplies. The best part of this shop; Dottie Q donates a percentage to Tenth Life Cat Rescue in St. Louis. You know that appealed to the cat lover in me!
It was finally chilly (and by chilly I mean it got below 40 Saturday night/Sunday morning) and I was finally able to break out a few warmer pieces. This swing dress is probably the most universally flatter dress, and swing dress are really big this fall. They are a bit shapeless and can easily be adjusted with a belt or cardigan if you aren’t wanting to go for the baggy boho look. This dress is a bit short but will be perfect for colder months with leggings or tights, but for now I simply wore some bicycle shorts under neath. It’s extremely easy to style these swing dresses because you can essentially put on anything with it and it will go. I paired mine with a blanket scarf and booties and had a pulled together fall look.
I picked up this scarf last year at Wal-Mart but is currently available again this year. This scarf is a great alternative to the expensive blanket scarves with the price point under $9.00. It is very similar but not as square but still large enough to be styled numerous ways that a blanket scarf is..
