Boston weather is making me a bit crazy this week — it’s freezing cold in the morning and then toasty warm by mid-day. I like to commit to a season, and I am ready for Fall. I’m already plotting my official switch from sandals and sundresses to my Fall Uniform … which pretty much consists of tights and boots with cozy dresses, and bright jeans with soft striped tees. What’s your Fall uniform?

I started digging through September issues over the weekend and LOVED seeing all of the green in the pages. I picked a kelly green fabric for the bridesmaid dresses in our wedding (check out the swatch below) and was inspired by a dress I saw Mara Rooney wear — I just love how bright and crisp the color looks! What do you think about these shades of green, will you be rocking it this Fall?

I’m heading down to New York for the weekend and will be attending my very first football game while I’m there. I’m not what you would call a sports person. But tailgating? I can get behind that. Enjoying a cocktail and dinner off the grill in my warm quilted jacket on a cool Fall day — that’s what I’m exciting about. I have been informed that tailgating in the parking lot at an NFL stadium is not going to be the preppy dream that I had envisioned in my imagination — but that’s not going to stop me from bringing my monogrammed boat tote!

There’s something about escaping the city that makes the weekend so much more relaxing. I hit up the orchard with my family, walked through the pumpkin patch, and indulged in some delicious cider donuts. And I scored some amazing finds at the thrift store and tag sales — I can’t wait to find the perfect spot for my new yellow lamp!

J.Crew is calling it Flaming Red, others might call it vermilion, but I think the only thing you need to call it is the “it” color for Fall. Walking past storefronts this weekend I saw it in every display popping next to camel coats, boyfriend jeans, and leopard print accessories — I love how crisp and bright it looks in every variation.

Somehow I’ve spent my entire life in the Northeast and never went apple picking before this weekend. I think I picked the perfect weekend for my first time, it was absolutely gorgeous out in Boston. Plus I got to play around with my new camera, what do you think?
