and summer faded into the fall…

There’s the tiniest hint of crisp coolness in the evenings, my Facebook news feed is filled with stories about Starbucks pumpkin lattes, and my allergies have waged a full-on assault from the neck up… and I couldn’t be happier about it.

Scarves and boots are just around the corner! Right behind them are hearty crock-pot comfort dinners, football parties, colorful tights, pumpkin everything, cinnamon brooms, tailgates, lazy weekend afternoons with all the doors and windows open, autumn crafts, and — perhaps best of all — the end of swimsuit season.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

  5. I just had a pumpkin spice latte this afternoon :) It’s feeling very fall-ish today here in Indiana. I am so excited too! Any day now it will be time to pull my boots out of storage. This makes me happy!

  • The only thing that would’ve made this @bonappetitmag ‘white pesto pasta’ better is if @lallimusic was in my kitchen when I made it. (I re-watched her video as I prepped, which was the next best thing.) Guys, I cannot overstate the seriousness of my obsession with the @bonappetitmag YouTube channel. Most of my bookmarks on my phone are videos of recipes I want to try, and I’m slowly making my way through ‘em; kind of like ‘Julie & Julia’ but with fewer live lobsters and a little less butter.

  • Spotted this pretty blooming bush on our evening walk through the neighborhood. 
Doak got a little *too* close to the smell the flowers. 🤣
  • In today’s edition of #sundaybaking, I took on @bonappetitmag’s ‘best chocolate chip cookies’. I watched the video first — if you’re not following the @bonappetitmag YouTube channel, get on it! — then used the recipe from BA’s website to guide me through it. 
Crispy edges + a chewy center + brown butter + giant chunks of 70% dark chocolate = a pretty perfect cookie. 🍪
@moroccochris - I salute you.

  • Clearance vase jackpot at @pier1 this weekend. There are so many great colors and textures in all shapes and sizes from $10-30 with an extra 25% off. ⁣
This was the ultimate test of self-control for me...⁣
I bought 5.
  • Saturday errand style f/ two #styleonabudget favorites from last summer that are still going strong: this gingham ruffle cami I found on a clearance rack at @target + a rattan circle bag I bought for around $25 on @amazon. 
I’m killing the cost-per-wear game with these two. 😏 #whatiwore #ootd #summerstyle #stylefiles
