Current Fall Favorites

All items from Ruche

Long time no blog update, right?!?
I have missed you guys!
Oh my, the past few weeks have been so crazy busy for me. At work there was a huge deadline, so I was working large amounts of overtime. Then I was sick last week, which put me out for a good four solid days(ickkk), and then this past week after taking senior photos for my cousin, I was a busy little bee editing them every night after work. Phew! Luckily, the last item that kept me busy was quite fun! The photos turned out great and boy have I sure missed working in Photoshop.

Anyways, I am sort of in love with all the above pieces. I definitely need to get my hands on a polka dot sweater this year! Last year I never got around to it on my limited clothing budget. And although I am not much of a heel wearer, those t-straps are too cute.

What are your current fall favorites?!
I hope you all have a great weekend! I will be catching up with two friends that coincidently happen to be in town at the same time. Two friends that I met when living in Texas and we used to all hang out together too. It shall be fun :)

Burgundy Love

Shoes-Report via Ross
Cameo-Gift from Mom

Photo overload, I know....but all the beautiful fall colors left it so hard to pick just a few and the fact that I am sort of obsessed with this outfit didn't help either. In my last post, I had mentioned that I finally purchased the burgundy pants from H&M that I had been lusting over.....well here they are. I have been spotting these pants all over the blogosphere and just had to get my hands on some. I didn't know it was possible to have this much love for a pair of pants. So much in fact, that they didn't even have my correct size, so I opted to buy a size too large, because I wanted them that much. haha

I loved the idea of pairing the burgundy with soft pink and lace, faux leather and of course a little vintage flare with the cameo necklace.

It was my sweet hubs Birthday yesterday!! We started out the day with a yummy birthday breakfast of Spiced Pumpkin Pancakes, then later we hung out with some of his close friends and went to our favorite Thai place in our favorite neighborhood (Capitol Hill). After we ate, we all went for a nice walk around around the neighborhood and popped into a few shops. We then all headed back to our place, where we had mini chocolate cupcakes, the guys played video games and I discovered my love for hard cider! haha
Specifically Samuel Smith's Organice Cider. So delish. I totally have a new favorite drink.
Not sure why I had never tried hard ciders before, boy was I missing out! :)

Also, remember back when I hosted the baby shower a few months ago for my brother and his wife?! Well they had their baby boy today!! So happy for them and can't wait to meet the precious little guy. So excited to be his Aunt Lizzie!!

What did you guys do this weekend?! I hope it was great, whatever it was!

Boho Blouse


Well, Boho-esque blouse....but that title just didn't sound as good.
This blouse has been one of my go-to tops lately. I sort of love everything about it.

So, how has everybody's weekend been?!? I hope it has been just wonderful. Mine has been pretty low key; I finally got the burgundy pants from H&M I have been lusting over. So. Happy. Can't wait to style those babies.
It has been so unseasonably nice and warm here in the Seattle area lately. Like in the 70s. Which if you have ever been to Seattle in October, you know it's odd, because the standard is 50 degrees with rain. So weird, but obviously super nice. I don't mind having an extended summer at all :)
Despite the summer-ish weather, I have fully submerged myself into all things Fall.
This morning the hubs and I had Pumpkin Spice Pancakes and Apple Cider for breakfast and I made my first soup of the season last week. YUM.

Have a great one!
