Fall Layers

Layers are essential to any fall look as the weather gets nippy (its my favorite weather). Tights, sweaters, knee high socks, hats, gloves, scarf, and boots can all be components of one outfit.  The key is to consider the length of the garments you are layering and what goes on top.

Moments like this can really keep the shivers away. Layering a maxi cardigan under a jean jacket paired with plaid twill pants and a beanie is a perfect outfit for spectating those late night soccer games. My sister is also doing it right with statement patchwork pants, fuzzy boots, sweater under a fleece jacket and beanie to keep those ears nice and toasty.

For those warmer fall days I paired the same maxi cardigan with a wool dress and knee high socks. If the temperature drops add some tights under the socks and a coat to add some extra warmth.

(A statement necklace is a good idea for any outfit).

Going on a nature walk in October? No problem.  Throw on a beanie, flannel shirt and jean jacket over your favorite lace dress and leggings. Paired with some hiking boots and you’re off on that hike in style.

So there you have it. Layer, layer layer. It’s the perfect way to show off all your favorite pieces in one  look. This trend can easily be taken into weather by you guessed it, adding MORE layers. Though, Im not quite ready for that yet.

To find pieces like the ones seen here check out Free People and Urban Outfitters for inspiration.

How I Spent Memorial Day

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

This is where I spent my memorial day weekend. Peaceful right? That’s because there was no cell phone service. This little place is found at the bottom of a waterfall in upstate New York.  I took the long 5 mile hike to the top and this is what I found:

Liberating right? I can tell you I’m extremely afraid of heights but this site was extremely incredible.

The water was chilling but on an eighty -degree day nothing was better than a wade in the water creek with your best friend, family and eight doggie friends.

This is the good life. And the freedom I experienced yesterday wouldn’t be possible without the people who served/ are serving in the armed forces protecting this country. So thank you for a great day, and every free day I experienced. Your service is much appreciated.

If you get a change, take a walk, a road trip to a place where you don’t get cell phone service. Find some beauty and explore it. Hike up that mountain even if your out of shape. Breathe in the fresh air and bring those you love. It’s well worth it.
