It has finally started to feel like fall is in full swing here in Michigan! With temperatures falling into the 40s at night, we finally (much to Aaron’s dismay) caved and turned the heat on. Along with the changes in the weather, I feel like life is changing too. We have been busier than usual, I’m still adjusting to a fuller schedule and trying to come up with a routine to keep my blog posting days on track. I must admit that I haven’t been doing very well, but it’s a new week and hopefully with a little better planning I can keep on task. One exciting thing that has happened, is that we finally got our garage re-sided! This may sound very mundane to you, but it has been a long time coming for us so we are pretty excited about it. You can see how much it need to be done in the pictures above! I always used to joke about it and say that it was my shabby chic backdrop for pictures ;). A small part of me was sad to see it go, so we decided to do one last photo shoot in front of it. From now on you will be seeing a freshly re-sided garage behind me in some of my photos :).
This swing dress is another one from Dear Creatures fall 2013 line (I went a little crazy last year). I absolutely love the vintage inspired 1960s vibe! I love all mid-century styles and flip flop between the 50s and 60s being my favorite era, but I think the 60s might have a little more of my heart. One of my favorite ways to layer in the fall/winter is to wear a pair of bright colored tights, I love the way it adds some life and interest to any outfit. Do you think these are bright enough? ;) I bought these shoes from Target YEARS ago and had finally cleaned out my closet and put them in a bag to give to Goodwill. I just could not get them out of my head, so I dug them (and a few other pairs) back out. It is so hard for me to get rid of clothes and shoes, I am such a hoarder! If you could only see my closet (it’s actually a bedroom turned into a closet) you would understand, it’s a little crazy and I think I might have a problem. Admitting it is the first step, right? ;)
