Arriving at this post has been a true struggle in that the past few weeks have been a real challenge for me. I have been battling with some health issues and am trying my best to stay positive. Finding the motivation to sit down and write hasn't been easy, but I know that is when my heart is most full. Blogging has become such an escape for me and has allowed me to talk about topics that are weighing heavily on my heart. I am looking forward to creating content on my blog that gives you more insight into my life, opening up to you even more. I plan on sharing my health journey soon, but until then, I will be sharing some of my favorite Fall looks for this season.
Fall is a season that gets my creative juices flowing and since October 1st arrived, there hasn’t been a day that I haven’t planned out my outfit the night before in anticipation of this season. There are so many activities during the month of October that I look forward to all year long and for each Fall-themed activity, there is the perfect outfit to go with it of course. I recently visited Sweetfields Farm in Masaryktown, FL and I was immediately welcomed by the pumpkin patch, corn maze, hay rides, and fresh lemonade! The greatest surprise was the dozens of sunflowers reaching for the sky just beyond the pumpkin patch. Visiting Sweetfields is my favorite venue for Fall festivities. Though I would love to wear an oversized sweater, scarf, denim, and boots when visiting the pumpkin patch, the Florida weather doesn't always permit. I love to wear plaid this time of year so it only makes sense to wear it to the farm! There are many ways to incorporate Fall into your wardrobe, and my personal favorite is my plaid “dress.”
I originally purchased this outfit as a dress and have since worn it as a jacket by leaving it unbuttoned and pairing it with high waisted pants. This has been my go to outfit this month, especially when partaking in my favorite Fall activities such as visiting the farm. This outfit is so versatile and can be worn many different ways. Another one of my favorite activities to do in the month of October is to visit Disney World. I currently have a trip scheduled with my besties to go later this month! There is something very magical about Disney world in October…the decorative color scheme ranging from oranges to deep reds, Halloween candy, and of course all of the Disney characters dressed up in festive costumes. I love to feel comfortable when walking around the theme park and have found that lightweight dresses work best for me. This is when I wear my plaid dress as an actual dress - the material isn’t thick but is long-sleeved. This is perfect for those chilly October nights when watching the magical fireworks.
When it comes to participating in fun Fall themed activities, I always look for the staple stand out piece that can be mixed matched and go with anything. I have no shame in outfit repeating, so finding a piece that can be worn in many ways is simply thrilling. I encourage you to find time this month to enjoy at least one festive activity! life can become hectic at times so it's important to remind yourself that it's okay to live a little and have some fun.
