Can you even believe that it's the last week of October?! Part of me wants time to stand still while I try to catch up and another part of me can't wait for the holiday decorating to begin!
With the weekend behind us, here's a little recap. I linked to two tops on Friday and thought I would share pics of them. The first one is from Gap, love the floral print so much and as I mentioned on Friday, the fit is perfect, I love their fitted boyfriend tops! This is the one I'm wearing and you can also nab the white one.
Then there is this flannel plaid top from Old Navy. It's light flannel, and again, the fit is fantastic! I missed out on the turquoise one, but this one is still available so is the black and white one:
Do you ever break out your vintage tea set if you have one? We were given so many lovely pieces from hubs' Grandmother, a few of which that I keep on the kitchen counter. Every so often I use them for my afternoon tea. I find I sip the tea slower and enjoy the quiet moment a little longer.
No, I didn't bake them from scratch, but they were mighty tasty! Though the black icing (not pictured) will never make another appearance in our house! ha!
Onto other things!
The last two years my focus has been on decorating our home. It's been quite the journey. I'm at the point now that I'm no longer looking at unfinished/empty spaces all throughout our home, which is so nice. There are still a few corners and rooms that need to be finished, but I've reached the point that it's not a nagging feeling of getting things done.
There is a corner in the living room, behind the couch (where the lamp is) that needs to be filled. I just can't find something that I love or the perfect piece. Search continues.
I know the answer will come and have contemplated putting a bookshelf there, but I don't know. I also want to replace the side tables that are currently beside the bench. We need something bigger, so I've been keeping an eye out for those.
Then in the family room, I think we need to add a tall mirror behind this chair and a beautiful piece of art behind the other.
I have a few super exciting blog posts coming up in the next couple of weeks. Decorating, fashion, entertaining and more! Eep, can't wait!
With the change of season comes a change in wardrobe. As I mentioned, you will be seeing more fashion posts here from now on, which I'm excited about (I hope you are too!).
I love the layering that happens during the fall months. I love seeing plaid, flats that boast beautiful prints, cozy knits and puffy vests.
Absolutely loving this look worn by Alyson from Sequins and Things:
And this look worn by Caroline from House of Harper:
I currently have a black peacoat for this time of year, but would love other options to switch things up a bit. These three are from Old Navy and I love that they are affordable.
What are your fall fashion staples? I'm pining my favourite looks! Be sure to follow!
I also wanted to mention that I'm thrilled to be over at Amanda's inspiring and beautiful blog today! You can find the post here. Thanks so much, Amanda!
