What To Wear: Fall Style Essentials

I hate to bid adieu to summer until fall is good and here, but it’s hard to deny the chill in the air this week. I’m looking forward to a gorgeous, sunny weekend, but the extended forecast is decidedly calling for jeans. Naturally, all I’m thinking about are cute fall clothes at the moment. Think cozy cashmere sweaters, the perfect pair of comfy jeans, soft scarves, a great tote bag for fall adventuring and the occasional pop of fun pattern.

A Dreamcatcher Birthday Party

I love this fun, crafty birthday party that Joslyn of Simple Lovely planned for her daughter Audrey’s 8th birthday. With festive decor in pretty jewel tones, yummy treats and a group of giggling girls crafting up their very own dreamcatchers, this is my kind of party! A fun birthday teepee for hiding out and sharing secrets? Bonus! Get all the details at Simple Lovely.

Sweet Eats: Root Beer Funnel Cakes with Blueberries

With summer winding down, comfort food is taking center stage in my brain. As the days grow shorter and the mornings get cooler, I think I’ll definitely be giving these root beer funnel cakes a try sometime this fall.

Party Palette: Cobalt + Turquoise

Last week’s color palette was all about gorgeous shades of purple and today’s inspiration was drawn from vibrant, jewel tone shades of cobalt blue and turquoise. I love the elegance that comes from simply pairing blue with a heavy dose of white or ivory. The look can easily transform from preppy to casual to glam depending on how you work the details. Here luxurious fabrics, a bit of bling and romantic texture make the look completely timeless and beautiful. For even more color inspiration, check out past color palette posts.
