Guess what? We had a beautiful weekend last weekend and this week, so we decided to keep the pool open a little bit longer. It’s heated so we called our giant hot tub, lol but that weather is taking a turn. that’s OK as we’ve got a fabulous wedding tomorrow with lots of dancing, great food, and friends so I’m excited! BUT pray the swelling from the bee sting I got on my face on Wednesday gets better by tomorrow. Ugh!
Let’s get to favorites!


1. Overnight at Jill's

Oh, how fun! I got to see Jill from Doused in Pink two weeks in a row! This was the first time I had been to her beautiful home that she and her husband have so sweetly remodeled and got to meet her precious pup Lana! The reason for my visit: a Cabi event which I will tell you more about soon! We were having such a good time I didn’t get near enough pictures but look at her sweet Lana with me in the morning before I left. Look at the treats auntie Jill sent home to Stella and see those big meatballs and rice. Jill‘s husband went with us to dinner at a great restaurant called Firkin on Friday night and of course they were having Oktoberfest and he got the German balls! 

We each had a bite, so good!

The rusts and Navy’s are stealing my Fall heart his year!

3. Favorite Fall Outfit

I think this might be one of my favorite outfits at least so far of Fall! The double-breasted Blazer from Gibson Look in the color saddle it’s just so rich and pretty and look beautiful with the satin shirt and wider leg cropped jeans.


4. Color Block Cutie

Aren’t the colors so pretty in this Color Block Sweater? This gorgeous well-made sweater is from Chicwish and just such a no-brainer to throw on with jeans and boots!

  15. I love the navy & rust color combo for fall. I've never thought to pair those two and I have obviously been missing out; it's a refreshing fall color theme!

  16. I need to get on the ball and make some soups. Even though it's still warm here, they are such an easy way to get nutrients in a meal.

  17. I love rust and navy together - so fresh looking. Sorry to hear about the bee sting. I had one on my ear a few months ago, and it was so uncomfortable. have a wonderful weekend!
