Burgundy Love

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!



  1. Awww you totally rock those burgundy pants Lizzie! And I love the autumn season too. :) All those pretty leaves! And I LOVE hard cider!! There's this place in Georgetown that has great hard cider selections. Pear cider is so good!

    Congrats to your new nephew! How ironic, my future brother-in-law just had his baby nephew born today too. :) The day for newborns! haha...
