The Ruffled Dress + Autumn Cravings
My favorite ruffled dress that I don't wear as often as I should. This dress completely speaks to my personality, the ruffles, the lace, the ivory color. It has the essence of a sweet southern summer and I feel really happy every time I slip it on.
My cravings for fall began last week when we had some brief chilly weather. I'm already dreaming about orange leaves, bonfires, and hot chocolate. I'm ready for layers of clothing, tights, scarves, boots, and knitted headbands made by friends. Husband is ready for chili season. I guess I am too. A tradition we started in our first year of marriage was having a special night dedicated to the start of chili season and I can't wait to carry it out even when we have children. There's something nostalgic about only having it during a certain time of year.
It's still a little warm for tights but I satisfied my autumn crave with boots and a denim blouse. We picked some wild flowers and played with the pup in this field that we found just by happenstance. It's funny how simple things can make a day so good.
