Blanket Skirt + 3 Things on my Mind

I have found the most perfect blanket skirt for the Fall.  It even has fringe detailing.


We have had nothing but clouds and rain lately.  Yesterday was actually the first time we've seen the sun in 10 days.  It felt amazing and I can't tell you how energized I felt.  And happier!  Weather truly does have an affect on mood.

So while we were trapped inside by the rain, I was able to get to the mall for some shopping.  That's when I found this fabulous skirt.  The colors and the blanket material make it a perfect combination.  I'm wearing booties with it here but plan on adding tights and knee high boots this winter. 










Turtleneck: last year, similar here and here // Vest: Banana Republic, similar here and here // Skirt: LOFT // Booties: Lucky Brand // Tote: Nordstrom // Watch: sold out, similar here// Bracelet: J Crew Factory, similar here (love) // Necklace: Kendra Scott // Sunnies: Maui Jim

3 things on my mind:

1. I was craving something sweet and "fallish" so I made the easiest pumpkin spice cookies.  If you're on Pinterest then you've probably seen them.  They take 2 ingredients, 1 can of pumpkin and 1 box of spice cake mix.  Mix the ingredients and bake in a 350* oven for about 18 min.  They are so yummy and make your house smell heavenly.  The kids like mini chocolate chips in theirs.  I like pecans or walnuts in mine.  The hubby likes his plain.  You can also drizzle a simple glaze over them.

2. Recently I made the decision to stop burning candles in our home on the daily.  I had read some reports saying that they aren't good for our health and the air we breathe.  I was actually doing good with it until the Bath & Body Works Fall candles came out.  In a moment of weakness I bought 2 (they were on sale if you bought 2!).  The 'We Love Pumpkin' trio candle is so yummy!  It makes my house smell like Fall.  Once this season is over, I'm planning on going back to my no candle rule.  But I'm enjoying them while they are here!

3. So my 12 year old daughter got her first boyfriend last week!  Ahhh!  It's not really a big deal in the sense that they aren't going out on the town.  They just talk at school and text.  But it is a big deal because it means she's really growing up!  I'm not sure that I'm ready for all this to be starting.

    1. Thanks, yes perfect Fall colors in it! The cookies are easy and delicious. However they are better the same day they are made.

  7. These colors look so great on you! I love the wedge part of your booties!!! One of the most entertaining parts of my job is watching the middle schoolers grow up and into their own. I see it from the teacher side with just a twinge of unease that they are slowly becoming teenagers, but I can only imagine it from a mothers perspective!
