Burgundy Fall

Morning Friends!

Hope you had a wonderful Halloween weekend!!  I can't believe that here we are - the beginning of November and it still feels like late summer.  One thing I love about Colorado is that we have four true seasons.  Sometimes in the dead of winter I wish Jonny and I lived in California or Arizona where the weather is always mild, but then I remember we would never get days like these!

Last week, I took Stanley on a stroll and the leaves seemed to be at their peak.   Just a few days later he has almost doubled in size and  these beautiful leaves are almost gone.  Looking through these photos I got a little sad remembering a gorgeous fall day last year with Mr. Brown, so I am reminded to savor every minute of our changing Colorado seasons.

Since it has been unseasonably warm layering has not really been necessary just yet.  I have been loving these lightweight turlenecks from Madewell.  I liked this one so much I also bought it in black and blue and am planning on getting blush and red for the Holidays since they are currently on sale ($29.95).  Burgundy has been my very favorite color to wear this fall and I am sure will continue through the holidays and the new year - I was so excited when I spotted these Hunters in my new favorite color.  If it were chilly enough for a jacket, I would have worn this faux leather jacket ($32)! 

Have a great day!





Pumpkin Pickin

Happy Wednesday Friends,

I hope you are having a wonderful week...  if you are here in CO, seriously, can you believe this weather?  And if you are not, hope it is just as beautiful where you are!!

Jonny and I spent the better part of this past weekend enjoying the sunshine and our new puppy, Stanley.  He is an absolute riot and super smart... I sound like such a crazy dog lady, but I am convinced he is a puppy angel sent by Charlie Brown (why not, right?).  

It is rare that we have a free day that neither Jonny or I have work, a birthday, wedding, or other beautiful commitment so we decided to take a little daycation to Boulder and stop at the Cottonwood Farms Pumpkin Patch along the way.  We searched all over for a place that would also allow Stanley and it seems this is the only pumpkin patch that is also dog friendly.  Well, we were so glad we stopped here because it was incredibly charming.  Entry is free, wagons provided for your pumpkin picking pleasure, and possibly the highlight for me.... they have a mini horse!! One day I am going to get one and my poor husband is just going to come home to a small zoo in our townhouse.  

Jonny and I were so excited enjoy the beautiful fall day at the pumpkin patch.  And, my flannel that I just snagged from Madewell is super comfy! Definitely cozy, so will be perfect for chillier temperatures later this fall and winter.  I love how versatile this skirt is too - I have also worn it with a white tee and booties and will be great with black tights and boots in cooler temps too!  My boots and purse are both tried and true favorites.  Jonny actually got me both for Christmas two years ago and they have stayed in such wonderful condition!  Shop all outfit details below.

Would love to hear your favorite pumpkin picking spots!  Hope you have a wonderful rest of your week!
