Life Lately - Fall Festivities

Hi guys!! Hope you had a beautiful weekend. I most definitely did :] I am loving the beautiful fall weather. The sunny skies and cool weather are the perfect combo. While enjoying the weather I have been a busy bee. Aside from work I have been working on side projects, thrifting, and going on adventures. Here is a mini glimpse in to what I have been up to recently.

Last week I finished re-designing Jessi from Haircut and General Attitude's blog header. It was another fun side project to work on. I loved playing with pretty type and using collage effects.


As I told you all last week - I helped shoot some new headshots for my brother. He was trying out for a new position and wanted an updated look. I really love how they turned out. This one was my personal fave.

I made my thrifting rounds again this weekend. Another half off everything sale for fall - could not resist! I will share my finds on Thursday, but as you can see...pretty darn exciting, huh? Alright...I was excited at least.


Brian and I also went Apple picking. I will post more on this outing as well later this week but here is a sneak peak! I was excited to wear my new vintage coat from last spring.

Like my new specs??? These beauties were bought from the Ditto giveaway I won on Violet's blog. They are Jason Wu and so much fun to wear! Thank you Violet!!

Anywho... this post was a sort of all over the place but I felt like I had a lot to cover. The weekends seem to fly by these days. I also worked on a Seeking Style post for My Life in Lavender coming some time this week - I will be sure to let you all know when it goes live. *Takes a deep breathe. I am also going to try to make that vlog happen Tuesday night after work. *crosses fingers.

Take care lovelies :]


  1. Love love love your coat! So pretty! Those buttons!

  2. I'm in love with that coat! Soooooo cute! And it matches your apples ;)


  3. I love those glasses! And it looks like you got some great vintage stuff.

  4. OMG that header/font/picture is soooo awesome!!! It gave me a sort of general store feel. Love that!
    Look at Henry looking so fresh and so clean, clean. :) He looks quite studly - I hope it helps him get more roles!
    Ugh, I'm still sort of like, mind boggled that you get so lucky with such pretty dresses. I'd be willing to make a road trip to you, just to go thrifting. Especially if it meant I could find anything remotely close to as amazing as that coat. It's one of my favorites ever! And your hair looks so pretty laying on it.
    The glasses look so great on you! And those pictures apple picking are going to make a sweet little memory in your photo albums. I've never done that before. It seems so romantic!
    Lol, your vlog will probably come before mine. I think I'm more nervous than anything about how silly I acted recording, so I keep putting it off. Plus this weather changing has me napping every day when I get home and when I get up I look so haggard and 'done' for the day that there's no way I'm going to get back in front of that camera and re-record. haha
    P.s. Have I told you how much I love your nose ring? You look like such a sweet bad ass with it. Much like what my tattoos do for me. ;)
    Have a great rest of your week! Try not to work so hard. :)

    1. Thanks! Her last header hadnt a cool antique feel to it so I tried recreating it.

      haha. I hope it gets him more roles too.

      Youre more than welcome to head out to illinois to get your thrift on. The store by my house has been getting crazy good stuff lately. The coat is my fave. Thanks! Still cant believe I found it in the middle of nowhere.

      You should go pick apples with mikey. Its so much fun!!

      Haha. I am sure you are just fine. Im still working out how to record mine but am going to try tonight.

      Haha. Thanks! I had my septum pierced briefly but I think this is a better fit.

      Thanks!! Have a good week too ^•^

  5. Love that blog header, you are so very talented <3. Amazing pictures of your brother too, he's such a cutie!

  6. That is so funny you mentioned my blog in this post because I just mentioned you in mine! Haha. Thanks SO much again for redesigning my header into something so beautiful! That thrifted dress on the far right is SO perfect. Jealous! Looks like you've been having lots of fun and keeping busy. I agree it's nice to have a cute and substantially taller guy ;) My hubby is 6'4". Hope you're having an awesome week!


    1. Haha. Thank you :] I had so much fun working on it. It was a new style for me so it was fun to recreate.

  8. I love Jessi's header! It's so pretty! Your brother's headshot is beautiful!

  9. Your brother's headshot is incredible! And the bowls in the photograph below are adorable. I've been wanting to go apple picking so terribly, but I've been settling for the carmel apples in the store.

  12. One, your redesign work looks great, as always. Two, the head shot looks great. Bright, natural, crisp and clear. Three, it's nice to see an appearance of your boyfriend! He's super shy with the photo taking right? I'm going to try and do the apple picking, cider drinking and pumpkin picking soon!!
