Soup and Scones

Fall in my eyes means beautiful weather and comfort food. Last night I went for the comfort food, and today I'm going to the pumpkin patch and enjoying the outdoors! So, first let me just say I have an obsession: Pinterest. I am seriously on everyday looking for new recipes and other ideas. Bryan and I have been trying to cook homemade meals more often and Pinterest has been my housewife lifesaver! Last week I tried a new recipe almost every single night! I know my blog is usually just outfits and style, but I want to start branching out and adding more lifestyle posts. Decorating ideas, recipes, etc. So, today is the start to my new adventure on my blog, and what better way to do that than with one of the best comfort foods of all time: chicken noodle soup.

Chicken Noodle Soup
I found this chicken noodle soup recipe on Pinterest, but it's originally from Lady Anne's Charming Cottage. Go check it out and then try it for yourself! It was easy to make, took under an hour to prepare and cook, and was absolutely delicious. Plus, with only two people in our household we now have leftovers for the next couple days!

Pumpkin Scones
Along with fall also comes everything you can imagine containing pumpkin. I love to bake, but usually just stick to the basics, so I was really excited to try this new recipe! And let me tell you, it was amazing! I think I left them in a little too long which made them a little dry, but otherwise the recipe was great. It has just the right amount of spice to it, and the easy homemade icing on top is the best finishing touch. They were so good we had them for dessert last night and breakfast this morning! I also found this recipe on Pinterest but it's originally from Sweet Peas Kitchen. If you're a fall lover like I am, this recipe is an absolute must!

Fall Colors

The fall colors are just beginning to come out up here in the beautiful state of Minnesota, which meant Bryan and I had to go out and take some pictures. This is by far my favorite time of year. I love all of the colors, the fresh air, and the coolness that reminds you that summer has come to an end. We had originally planned on going out just so Bryan could take some nice scenery pictures, but I had to take advantage of this perfect setting and get a few pictures for the blog. Honestly, I don't know what I would do without my husband and his amazing camera skills!

Fall/Winter Must Have

Sometimes a girl just wants to wear white! And let me tell you, there is nothing better than a comfy white sweater, skinny jeans, and a pair of boots. Ahhh, so glad it's finally fall. Once it starts getting colder out this outfit will pair perfectly with an earth tone scarf to match the brown boots.

I bought this sweater last fall for $12 at Kohl's for my wedding weekend. Yes, I was that girl who wore everything white from Thursday through Sunday of that weekend. Come on! You have to take advantage of being a bride and dress the part! I needed something comfy to arrive at the hotel Thursday evening and this was perfect. Warm, casual, and just allowed me to be comfortable and relax before a crazy weekend. Wearing this always brings back good memories :)

Boot Weather and Bold Lips

The time is finally here! Yesterday my favorite brown boots were finally taken out of summer hiding. Best. Day. Ever :) The sweater is also one of my most recent purchases. Found it on sale at Target for only $18. I think this look would also be great with a brown belt and a chunky necklace, but I was running errands and went for the simple look instead.

Also, my new obsession is bold lipstick/lip gloss. I can't get enough of my new Mary Kay lip stain in Enchanted Mauve. Stays on forever and pairs perfectly with my MK lip gloss in Au Naturel. I think you'll be seeing a lot more of this :)

Simple Fall Fashion

It's been awhile, but I'm back to blogging! So excited to share my current style ideas for everything from clothing and fashion to house decor! Today, a quick look at my favorite fall look. You can never go wrong with a great pair of skinny jeans and a comfy over sized sweater. Plus, this look is totally affordable. The jeans are only $16 which gives you more spending money to splurge on those amazing Etienne Aigner boots. If you're going to spend money on fashion, make sure you put it towards something that you can wear forever!
