Getting Cozy for Fall


When Marcus and I first got married, we lived in Florida. It was a huge shock for this New England girl when the fall and winter came around. I don’t love the cold, but I do love a change of season, and Florida just wasn’t the same. I am not hating on the south, I am just a New England girl through and through!

Now that the temperatures are dropping to a seasonal norm, I can break out the scarves, jackets, and boots. There is nothing like getting cozy in my layers with a warm cup of coffee, the smell of the fallen leaves, and a slight chill in the air. I just love you, New England!

Where do you live? Do you get awesome Fall weather? Or are you team one-season…  Share below!

Unconventional Valentine’s Day Outfit

If I am being completely honest, my husband and I have never been huge Valentine’s Day celebrators. Not that there is anything wrong with the holiday, we just never have gone out of our way to make a big deal out of it. I always see people posting these super cute Valentine’s Day outfit options, but they are totally fancier than I would need. So I decided to do a little dress up with a medium-dressy option, something that would be more suited to what we would do.

 Going with the traditional red, because it is Valentine’s Day after all!

I added a little pop of leopard for some fun!

With all the snow and cold winter temps, pants are really a more viable option in New England in February for me!

I had to include this picture: for those of you who don’t know, we are currently rooming with my parents who have a barn filled with horses. This is Zuko, and yes he is taller than me when he stands up. He protects the horses since my parents live in a more rural area. I had no idea he was behind me until my mom showed me after she took the pictures!

How cute are these shoes? Oh, and another dog photobomb.

My husband got me this pearl necklace for our six year anniversary. I thought it was fitting to wear for Valentine’s Day!

Black pants keep the look a little fancier than wearing just jeans.
