Just About Fall


How is it post-LDW already? With the passing of Labor Day, we bid adieu to Summer and usher in the impending Fall season. As sad as I am to see Summer go, Fall is legit my favorite season. But it’s hard to believe we are about to cross the threshold into the next season when we have been experiencing some insane hot (think 90 degrees) weather. So to ease the transition, I added a few key Fall pieces to this white tee and ripped jeans ensemble. First off, my very first Furla bag. Isn’t the rich tone to die for? It’s the perfect size; big enough to tote around my belongings, but not too big where it looks like I am ready to run away from home at any second. This crossbody is the perfect marriage of fashion and function. Lastly, Fall is all about the boots, ’bout the boots. Well, booties in this case! This ‘it’s still Summer but I’m looking forward to Fall’ outfit was the perfect OOTD for my rendezvous with the hubs in Portsmouth, NH.

I had been bugging Dan for-like-ever to take a day trip to Portsmouth with me. He finally obliged and we hopped into the mini and made our way North. First stop: Colby’s Breakfast & Lunch, where I had a blueberry pancake 3X the size of my head! It was delish. We then took a leisurely stroll through town, stopping into some of the cutest little shops. I manged to pick up a few gifts but Dan struck it big at Sault New England. They had an incredible sale ($9 shirt. say what?). And since were were only a short distance away, I convinced Dan to continue making our way up north to Kittery, ME. I was curious to check out the LuLuLemon outlet. It does exist. I scored two pairs of pants for $83 #deal. Before hitting the road to head home, we made a pit stop at Bob’s Clam Hut for a clam strips platter. Mmm, mmm, good! Perfect ending to a perfect day with my main squeeze.

Hope you all had a wonderful LDW! Here’s to a thankfully short week.
