Slim Pickings

Another day, another fall orchard visit.  This time I visited the orchard with my Goddaughter Mallory and family.  She is right in the middle of her shy phase, so wanted exactly nothing to do with "Aunt Kiki".  I was able to sneak away for a quick shoot before enjoying a pumpkin donut and some cider!  

When I arrived at the orchard and met my sister we both had on the exact same boots!  Last year we were shopping together and bought the same pair of duck boots thinking we'd never wear them at the same time.  Well, we were way wrong!  Great mind think alike, right sis?

A black knit beret always makes me feel very 60s arthouse.  I love cool weather because the options for covering a bad hair day go from "ponytail and pray no one notices" to hats hat hat and more hats!  I love a good baseball cap or knit cap.  They save the day!  My hair underneath is a hot mess today, but add the beret and you've got an instant beatnik.

Fall Favorite | Burgundy Corduroy

This skirt is getting a lot of wear this year!  The color is absolutely perfect for fall, and it seems to go with everything.  I have dressed it down with a tee (here), worn it over and dress  (here) and now topped it off with an IKC fave: polka dots!  I love when I find a power piece that I can wear over and over again.  Bonus points?  It was less than $25!  Cute and cheap- totally my style!

Fall Flannel

Each fall one of my best girlfriend's and I go to a local orchard for some apple picking and pumpkin donuts.  I love this annual tradition, and I am always sure to bring my camera along.  Since it feels like fall, I might as well dress like fall.  Flannel? Check!  Quilted vest? Check!   Leopard loafers?  Yup!  Tell me what's more "fall" than this!

Date Night

Scot and I have been dedicating at least one night per week for a date night.  We made a jar full of ideas ranging from free to pricey, and each week with pick out an idea and do it!  It has really given me something to look forward to each week.  Recently our date night was going to visit a park in Indy and just spending time together.  We went to Garfield Park, walked and sat on a bench overlooking the gardens for a bit.  It was something I would never think to do on a date night, but it was perfect!

Lucky Strike

Behold: My lucky top.  This Banana Republic top (which I have had since 2010!) is lucky for me.  I've worn in to job interviews under my suit, on specials dates and whenever I feel like I need a little extra boost. Paired with one of my favorite skirts, how could this look go wrong?

Blush Pink Suede Jacket

If you know one thing about me know this: I love a good deal.  Scoring something on sale or clearance is pretty much my favorite part of shopping.  I don't shop much anymore because my closet is full from years of being more thoughtful with what I bring home.  This has allowed me to remix things I love without feeling the need to buy a lot.  When I was younger I would buy things I liked only a little if they fit right, were on trend or the right price.  Now I only purchase things I really love and plan to wear often!  This has helped me reduce so much time and energy on things that I don't really want.  

Enter this jacket.  I was on the lookout for a suede jacket for fall, and unexpectedly scored this (on super super clearance) over the summer while they transitioned it out of their spring collection.  The soft blush pink is perfect, and was a nice twist for me as I was searching for a camel color.  I'll wear this jacket for years to come.
