Changing Seasons

Happy October, people!
We're officially beginning one of my favorite months of the whole year. It's like someone flipped a switch around here because suddenly October has arrived and bam- it's fall. Our September felt more like summer to me, which I'm not complaining about, but it's nice to have a break in the heat. I'm enjoying crisp mornings and SWEATER WEATHER! And as I type this I'm sitting in front of our electric fireplace warming my toes. Wood floors are no joke. When I checked the temperature on my phone this morning it said it was 42 degrees outside! Brrr.. We are definitely entering a new season.

Speaking of new seasons, I feel like I'm entering a new one personally, too. Winston is three months old next week (crazy) and he's totally letting us know that he's 'not' a newborn anymore. He's talking, cooing, laughing, smiling, and trying so desperately to roll over. I'm amazed at how fast our little pumpkin is growing and changing and I'm absolutely loving this new phase of his development.

Adjusting to life with a baby is challenging at times, but so worth it. Just getting out to snap pictures can be a chore, but I'm really trying not to let that stop me! I so enjoy blogging because as basic as it may sound- just spending time with Ben behind the camera is a blast, and he loves doing it. I'm hoping as Winston gets older, it becomes a fun thing for everyone to enjoy. Not to mention- he makes a great photo subject. ;)

I'm keeping outfits pretty basic lately, on purpose. I love the concept of a capsule wardrobe- having a few key pieces that you can wear multiple ways. I'm not sure I'm diligent enough to follow that idea entirely, but it's really helped me think before I make a purchase. I'm looking for key pieces that can be worn over and over this season, that way I'm not cycling through 'trendy' pieces too quickly.

This olive sweater was a great find at Forever 21. Affordable, versatile, and the perfect fall color! I'm looking forward to styling this with lots of different outfits.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope everyone has a great weekend ahead. I'm looking forward to a girl's day trip tomorrow and then a fun wedding this Saturday that Ben is officiating. We're also anticipating our annual fall color's tour coming up here in a few weeks. That's always SO much fun! I'm a Michigan nerd so I get into 'all the things' when it comes to fall.
