Leaf Peeping in NY
As the season gets deeper, and the temps keep falling, the more and more layering we see. While scrolling through Instagram one morning last week, I thought to myself, I see all of these lovely people wearing such adorable sweaters. Which at first made me want to wear my coziest sweater, but then I realized, I'm not much of a sweater person. I have the hardest time finding sweaters in a shape or color that I like. So, I set myself up for a task; to find sweaters that I love! I went outside of my comfort zone (typically, I gravitate towards skirts, dresses or dressier attire) and started searching for sweaters. To my surprise, I found so many that I fell in love with…Yippee!
This past weekend was the primal fall weekend that I’ve oh so desperately wanted and received! The temps didn’t reach higher than 60 and the sun was out for a majority of the weekend. Perfect sweater weather, might I add! Sunday was the best day! We woke up a little early, had our breakfast, got ready for the day and then took a short drive to Bristol Mountain to ride the ski lift and leaf peep. It was so magical. All the leaves were shades of bright orange, yellow, red and green. I can’t express how beautiful all the colors of fall were glistening on the mountains! We rode the ski lift to the very top and then ended up walking down the hill (it was a 3 hour wait to come back down). So, in white jeans and heeled boots, I told Chris he better hold on tight to my hand HAHA. Surprisingly, I did not fall once but Chris did (he’s always making fun of me for being clumsy so I had to throw that in there while I could ;). My legs were so sore yesterday, but it was well worth the climb. Seeing all the leaves falling and the aerial view from the top was unbelievable. Words can’t describe the magnitude of beauty we saw! If you get the chance to do something like this, I highly recommend it. Its incredible!
Anyways, I found this adorable sweater while on my sweater-hunt and fell madly in love that I ordered it in two colors (and currently have it in 2 other colors in my shopping cart at this very moment). It was so cozy and perfect for our leaf peeping adventure. It kept me nice and toasty on the lift up to the top of the mountain without being too cold. This sweater will be a great layering piece as the season gets colder. Simply add a button up flannel underneath for a more casual look or pair it with a nice motto jacket and pencil skirt for work. Or dress it up for the holidays, with glittery tights and a broach around the neck . Yes, white pants are still being circulated in my closet. I have no intentions of getting rid of them anytime soon! You’ve seen these jeans on here before (like here and here) and I can’t say enough about them. They are the perfect white for summer with sandals and the perfect staple for fall with boots or stilettos, if you are looking to dress them up. I love seeing white during the off-season. Something so crisp and clean about it, that I can never truly say goodbye to my white jeans. So ladies, whip out your summer containers and get those white jeans back! You are going to be seeing a lot of white this season and next, so don’t under estimate them!
Hope you all had a great weekend and even better week!
