Layer Upon Layer

 photo sources: 1, 2, 3, 4
Gorgeous fall weather! I can't get enough of it! It's been so nice being able to layer my clothing! To celebrate the first week of fall I thought I'd share four of my favorite examples of great layering!

The last picture is of Danielle of Visionary Dreams. I hereby declare her the queen of layering and my muse for this fall!

Tea Time

I had a wonderful Saturday with my friend Petra! We enjoyed pink colored tea made from hibiscus, lavender, and rose buds, and worked on some DIY's. Our projects required two trips to the fabric store as we realized we had forgotten one of the supplies, and at least double the estimated time, as most DIY projects do. Petra made a circle skirt out of a gorgeous linen and I made two wonderful velvet bows! I hope you enjoy the photos from our lovely afternoon!

New Favorites and Discoveries

 thrifted top and belt, Urban Outfitters jeans shoes, Target earrings worn as collar studs
I. Love. These. Shoes. I posted about these about a few months ago and once again I had to play the waiting game. They were backordered. Sound familiar? I love incorporating ballet elements into everyday outfits! They are so dainty and graceful I just love wearing them! Anytime I see so called "ballet flats" now they seem like posers compared to my legit ballet flats! Ha!  
Now refering to the second photo, I was playing around with my earrings and the collar of one of my shirts and creative genius struck. Can I use earrings as collar studs? A minute later... Yes! Yes I can! I now look over at my massive collection of earrings... SO MANY POSSIBILITIES! Ha! Oh the joy of new discoveries!

The Sweetness of Summer

Blackberries are one of my favorite berries out there. I probably say that about every kind of berry during its season but none the less, blackberries are wonderful! Anything they're in, cobblers, pies, cheesecakes, sauces, I love them all.

I took these photos a few weeks ago and I was just reminded of them while I was helping my mom with a blackberry sauce for the cheesecake in the fridge. After reading that last sentence I realized I'm seriously the luckiest girl in the world tonight.

Season Transitions, Bicycles, and Collars

Second photo, All other photos via Pinterest
One, I've been loving pairing cozy sweaters with pretty, flowy skirts. It's the perfect transition outfit from Summer to Fall. Two, bicycling is such a fun past time! Any picture of a bike seems magical. Three, you can't beat layering with collars. Wearing a collared shirt underneath sweaters or another shirt adds the perfect touch to any outfit!
