Happy first day of fall! While we have at least a month and a half down here in Texas until it technically goes into effect, I’m embracing this day as best as I can. The thought of crackling fires and carving pumpkins and long walks in the crisp evening air… it’s killing me!

One of my absolute favorite things about fall? The days that get dark and dreary. Yes, yes, I suppose that sounds borderline emo, but for some reason I love it! Give me a hot drink, a few layers and a slow country playlist (loving Spotify’s “Country Coffeehouse” lately!) and you’ve got yourself a happy girl. The snuggly outfit above was created with that type of day in mind.

Also, just want to point out that the tote bag is herringbone. Yeah. I know.

Go drink a PSL! (Or a second if you already beat me to it…)

Love from Texas,


Join in on the fun!

      Hi there! Actually, it is! :) I looped it up a couple of times, and the filter might have brought out the blues, but it’s the same one!

  9. I love me a good herringbone bag, and I love that you can personalize it! I hope fall gets to Texas sooner rather than later so you can start wearing all the things we’re starting to get to enjoy in the northeast!
