I’ve always been the type of girl who loves getting dressed: putting on makeup, curling my hair, picking out my clothes… it’s always been one of my favorite parts of the day. But lately, all of that doesn’t happen that often. I’m sure I don’t need to say this, but these days this blog is representative of such a small sliver of my life. Life with a newborn is so much different than what it used to be. I still love getting dressed, but it only happens maybe 2-3 times a week!
Like I mentioned on Monday’s post, part of our epic weekend included a trip to Charlottesville winery, Pollak Vineyards. We’ve been wine club members there for about a year now, but with being pregnant and then having the baby, we hadn’t picked up our membership bottles in quite a while. We were expecting to have missed two quarters, but when we were given a full box and an additional tote of bottles, we were pretty overwhelmed.
Since I’m still a bit in between sizes after the pregnancy, I haven’t been doing a lot of clothes shopping. But accessories are always a great way to mix up the wardrobe you already have, right? Scarves and booties have been my favorites to shop for! These bargain finds are topping my list. The scarves are all under $20 and the booties are all under $40! Guilt free shopping at its finest.
What an epic weekend! It was non-stop, packed full of Fall activities. On Saturday, we drove to Charlottesville to go apple picking with little Miss Layla. We also snuck in a winery visit and ended up spending the evening watching football with friends. On Sunday we were back at it, visiting the pumpkin patch!
The weather could not have been more beautiful. It was cool but bright and sunny – the perfect excuse to break out my felt floppy hat. Layla slept through quite a bit of it, but it was still fun to have her out there with us! Naturally we had to get her her own little baby pumpkin!

It’s been quite a while since I last wore my floppy hat. I need to remember to break it out more often.
Now I’d love to see how you’re remixing your wardrobe! (more…)
Once Fall rolls around, I find myself drawn to darker colors and earth tones. Browns, tans, charcoal, and grey seem to rule my wardrobe, but when I saw this peach dress from deloom, I knew it’d be a great piece to add some color into my closet.
