Fall is in the Air Show and Tell Monday and Challenge your closet

Ok, I might post the post I wrote and forgot to link up with Becky. Not going to forget to link up this time!

1. Tell us what you are looking forward to this fall?
So I know everyone is so ready for fall. I'm not. I haven't pinned any fall outfits. I have let our summer crab picture stay hanging. All I am looking forward to is our 2nd annual kiddo halloween party :)
2. Show us your fall style.

brown boots and a cardigan
3. Tell us your favorite things to do in the fall. If you have children, activities to do with the kids?
I love going to the pumpkin patch, carving the pumpkin, taking Chase to trick or treat and passing out candy.
4. Show us your favorite fall beverage.

apple cider. Might have to try this spiced cider recipe!
5. Tell us, how you will be participating in halloween this year. Plans? Costume ideas?
As I mentioned earlier, we will be having our 2nd annual kiddo halloween party. I may have already bought Chase's costume.
So cute, right?
The adults don't dress up. I still need to get him some Halloween pjs for answering the door in.

I also told you I'm going to be participating in Shannon's challenge your closet.
Life After I
So, first, I washed all my clothes, organized them by things I can where to work and casual and turned the hangers around. I took a before picture because I'm thinking a lot of that will not get worn and will be donated.
(I thought I had hung up all my clothes but I had another laundry basket full! This isn't my jeans or dresses either!)
I realized when I was doing this that I am not a wear a dress to work kind of girl.
Shannon's challenge was inspired by Kate at the small things doing a 30x30 challenge. I thought about doing a 30x30 challenge but realized I have no cute jewlery :( So my challenge is to wear it or donate it for now.

Outfit #1
I've always wanted to be someone that wears a maxi dress on the weekend for no reason so I did. This dress is Nordstrom like 3 years ago. It is also like the longest maxi dress ever made. I'm 5'10 and it is long on me. We ended up going to Target and Costco. At Costco I somehow got caught in the cart. Thank goodness Hubby was there to untangle me! I had to change into comfy clothes when I got home.

Outfit #2
Totally forgot I had this shirt but found it because of this challenge! Love a good photo bomb. He's trying to put a headband on. 


  1. Hi! I'm a new follower from the blog hop! Come visit me whenever you get a chance! :)

    I think both outfits look great!

  2. Love grey and orange together for fall! I will have to check out this organize your closet challenge. And love that your kiddo is in your picture so cute! My little is always at my feet too!

  3. I love the first autumn outfit!

  4. The little lion costume is adorable!

  5. I think the maxi looks great. I love wearing maxis on the weekend although lately all I wear is gym shorts and a tee.

  6. Hi! I found your blog on the Naptime Review hop. I'm not ready for fall either..but somehow over the weekend, it's like a switch turned off summer, and here it is. I need to dig through my closet to see what I have! I look forward to reading more of your blog!
