Feeling Like Fall

Is it just me or do the sunsets look completely different all the sudden?! I feel like sunset and rise are just more golden than they have been over the last few weeks…. Maybe I’m projecting, but I think it means we are officially transitioning into Fall even if it’s still in the 90s here in Florida!

Either way, every night for the past week we’ve gone outside just to get a glimpse of the entire sky turning a golden pink, because they really have been just too pretty to miss!

… anyway, this past weekend was full to the brim with travel prep. We have back to back trips coming up so we were busy finishing up projects, packing, and getting the house in order! I love traveling and I love being at home, so it’s been such a fun season of doing a lot of both.

Today we leave for Mexico, and I can’t wait! Neither Ryan nor I have really experienced Mexico, so this will be such a fun trip for the both of us. The thing I’m the most excited about is the FOOD, but we’ve heard such wonderful things about Mayakoba and we can’t wait! Have you been?

5 Things I'm Loving

Favorite Fall Dress

Okay, I have a few Gal Meets Glam dresses, but this one is quite possibly my favorite (sold out, similar here). I’ve worn it twice already and can’t get enough. If you are looking for a very versatile and extremely comfortable dress, this is the one for  you. I have it in a size 4, but could totally have done a size 2… but the length might have been a little too short in the smaller size. For reference, I’m 5′ 8″! 

Also, Gal Meets Glam is launching their collection with Margaux today at 12:00 p.m. EST. and the shoes are stunning! If you are looking for an amazing ballet flat, look. no. further. Also, just as an fyi, they are true to size. I’m a size 9 and wear a 39m in their flats and a 39.5 in their boots!

Photo Albums

One of my BIG goals this year is to put together photo albums from the past 6 years – The year Ryan and I started dating plus the past 5 years we’ve been married.

Every year I say I’m going to do it, but it just never happens. But this Fall it’s HAPPENING and I’ve already started the process through Artifact Uprising with these beautiful lay flat books. I have this crazy fear that we will be the “lost generation” with all of our photos online and or on hard drives and gosh darn it, I want our kids and grandkids to know just how much fun we are! ha!

The Perfect Cami

I love Mott & Bow’s basics, gosh they really are just so good. But their cami may be my new favorite in their collection. I have this one in black (size small) and it fits like a dream! Here’s a whole post on their denim as well. I love their “mom jeans”

The Round Brush Curl 

I got my hair done last week and when my stylist was blowing it out she used a round brush to put a wave in my hair. I LOVED it! Looser than what you’d get with a curling iron and it lasted all day. This is the brush she used and now I just need to master the technique. 

I found this tutorial video on youtube and it seems to be doable… so wish me luck! Do you use a round brush to add curl to your hair?

So Many Thoughts

If you aren’t following Elizabeth Holmes on instagram, you’ve got too! She’s a royal enthusiast and breaks down all of the royal outfits and outings, plus she’s a riot! Currently her content on Harry and Meghan’s royal tour is just too good to miss!

She does most of her magic in IG stories, but she also has a blog that she keeps up to date so that you don’t miss any of her thoughts. Guys, it’s good… you must follow!

    The link to the September dress at GMG takes me to an inoperative website sad to say.
