Happy Thursday, everyone! It’s a rainy day here today, but I’m throwing it back to an outfit I wore a few weeks ago. I meant to post it earlier, but was very sick all of last week so now i’m playing catch up. This look is all about some of my favorite fall textures, patterns, and colors that make me smile. Tweed is an absolute staple in my fall wardrobe, especially for blazers like this hounds tooth one. Another favorite is corduroy, whether its jackets, blazers, pants, or skirts like this golden yellow one, which also happens to be one of my favorite fall colors along with the forest green sweater I’m wearing. I have a thick cable knit green sweater that I wear and have worn for years and years. It’s a go-to for me so stocking up on this color is a no brainer. Speaking for the style side of fall, all of the different the textures and patterns is why I love it so much. It’s a chance to layer up and explore different possibilities.

Good morning and happy Friday! Happy March 1st too! Yesterday was a very exciting one in our family. My dad retired after 37 years of being a podiatrist. The office held a party for him with lots of yummy food and a cake. They also made up a memory book filled with pictures throughout the years and funny sayings. It was so nice to see everyone all together having a good time. I know my dad, brother, and I appreciated all of the thought that went into creating the party. Little miss Ava absolutely stole the show too. She loves a party! Congrats dad on a well deserved retirement!

Speaking of Ava, she told me when I was wearing this cherry print top that it reminded her of Mary Poppins. That’s a plus in my book! I love the color combination of pink and red with some green and the subtle cherries printed on the top. It’s quite lovely and has a fresh feeling to it. I paired it with a denim skirt going for a casual vibe.

Yellow Jacket || Striped Top || White Skinny Jeans || Red Scalloped Bag || Sunglasses || Similar Scarf || Navy Flats || 

Happy Wednesday, friends! As winter carries on, my mind has been drifting to all things warm weather related, including my love for nautical pieces. Truth be told, I wear nautical ensembles year round, regardless of the season. A favorite in summer, I like to keep the seafarer vibe going strong whenever and wherever I can. I decorated my home with a strong nautical New England influence.

The inspiration for this look started with the yellow parka jacket, perfect for layering in the spring and summer. It has a decent weight to it, which I was actually surprised with. The striped top and white jeans will always be a forever classic pairing, along with the navy flats adorned with gold buttons. They’re on sale now too! Ava was particularly taken with the scalloped bag in a bright shade of red. She wanted to carry it the whole time and often does when we’re at home. Completing the look, I tied a sailboat scarf around my neck that I got up at the Cape a few years back.

Good morning and happy Monday! I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday weekend filled with good food, friends and family, football, shopping, and maybe even putting up your Christmas decorations. Ava and I went to go see The Grinch again over the weekend and I have to say, I enjoy the movie just as much as she does! They did an awesome job of re-telling the story. We also started watching some Christmas shows starting with Frosty on tv, The Polar Express, and A Christmas Story. Don’t forget that Ruldolph is on tomorrow night at 8pm on CBS.

 On our last day at Valley Forge, Ava and I took one last drive around the park and decided to take a little walk before heading home. We stopped at a popular part of the park we’d never been to before. I’d always seen quite a bit of cars parked at this location and I eventually found out why. It was a stunning crisp morning with the sun offering endless amounts of light in the sapphire blue sky. We walked on a path that eventually led to an old beautiful estate that was picture perfect. On the walk we had passed some barns, old homes, fields, and a stream that were all amazing photographic backdrops. I passed three other photographers doing family portraits while there! It was the end to another fantastic trip to my favorite spot in PA.

Wool Blazer || Eyelash Sweater || Skinny Jeans || Tall Boots || Similar Tory Burch Bag || Jackie Kennedy Earrings ||   

Happy Thanksgiving, friends!  First and foremost, I am truly thankful for my family, especially my little Ava bug. I don’t know where I would be without their love and guidance. I am thankful for my friends, my health, and to you dear reader for your continued support. I hope everyone traveling gets to their destinations safely and enjoys this boutinful holiday with their loved ones. I’m looking forward to watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade, spending some quality time with my family, eating a delicious dinner, and watching some football!

The photos above are from the first day of our Valley Forge trip. The weather was spectacular with the setting sun’s golden rays illuminating the land. The views looked as if they were taken straight out of a postcard. I wanted something comfortable to not only travel in, but also knowing I would be to walking around the park quite a bit too. This blazer has been my fall staple creating effortless classic looks. These boots also lend a hand in creating classic ensembles with retro inspired details. Ava and I both had on our cozy eyelash sweaters that we felt snug as a bug in.

Good morning! Happy weekend and also welcome to November! I can hardly believe we are so close to the end of 2018. Where did this year go?! I’m excited for the holiday season though and all that comes along with it. For November, there’s obviously celebrating Thanksgiving, but I’m also looking forward to everything and anything that is cozy and bright. Think lots of layering, sweaters, some “extra” razzle dazzle, snuggly blankets, and also my Christmas movie list. It’s good to start rounding those up to start watching after Thanksgiving. We may have even started listening to Christmas tunes too! No judging lol.

Now, onto this English Country inspired look. This is actually my favorite fall outfit that I’ve styled this year! The color combination, with this stand out blazer, and all of the layering are what make me love this so much. The ensemble has a proper feel while still being relaxed and even a bit playful with the cute deer print on the Woolrich sweater. Jeans would also be an excellent choice for the outfit, but I feel the warm brandy color of the corduroys packs a beautiful color punch. The piece I am head over heels for is this English Wool blazer. My inspiration came from my grandma and grandpa Kretchmer, who were the epitome of the country gentleman and lady. I kept thinking of them and the classic English country looks when putting this look together. This gorgeous coat just came out and is very similar to the blazer, though as a topcoat. The color is just stunning!

Plaid Flannel Top || Puffer Vest || AG Skinny Jeans || Burgundy OTK Boots || Similar Kate Spade Bag || Karen Walker Sunglasses || 

Good morning and happy Monday, friends!  I hope everyone had a great Halloween themed weekend! We most certainly did and got to partake in some Halloween events decked out in our costumes. I’m sure everyone can guess who Ava is this year, haha. I’ll be sharing those photos this Wednesday on Halloween. Reformation Sunday was also this past weekend. Our church celebrated with a big fall festival complete with a lunch-in, baking contest, pumpkin decorating, making a scarecrow, and a bonfire with singing and s’mores. Ava said it was the best party ever! Everyone really enjoyed her saying that. We had a fantastic time.

Speaking of the weekend, this look is one I wore recently while running some errands. I love layering with a vest, but more so, I adore the colors and how beautifully they all blend together. I always find myself drawn to burgundy’s and cranberry’s this time of the year. These OTK boots have become an absolute staple for me and get the most compliments of any shoe I’ve worn. They stand out and also work with just about every type of fall outfit. Let’s just say they POP! This one and also this one are very similar to them. The flannel plaid top has been on repeat quite a bit lately, usually when I need to grab something quick to put on to take Ava to school in the morning. Its soft with an oversize boyfriend fit. I’m wearing my normal XS and still have some room to wiggle in it.
