Preppy Camo

A few weeks ago someone used the word “outdoorsy” to describe me. To me the definition of outdoorsy typically means someone who likes camping, fishing, hunting, dirt, bugs, etc. All things I can’t say I’m a fan of.

 But if the definition of “outdoorsy” means someone who likes to wear camouflage then that is something I could jump on board with! Camouflage has become somewhat of a neutral staple for my fall wardrobe. I find myself wearing it often because it really looks great with everything.

Easy Fall Wreath How-To

One of my favorite things about fall is all of the beautiful colors! I can’t get enough of the reds, the yellows, the golds, the oranges…simply gorgeous! This year I was in the need of a new fall wreath, even though I technically don’t have a front door of my very own at the moment {remember I’m in between moves 😉 }. Luckily, my mom let me borrow her front door so I don’t have to wait until October to share my latest easy project.

August Faves

Well August is over and I just realized I didn’t really take many pictures to recap the month…whoopsies! I guess I spent most of the month preparing for my big move out of the Purple Place {which happened Sunday…more to come on that soon!} So please bare with me as I attempt to get back into somewhat of a normal routine while my life is pretty much packed into boxes until I move into my new home in October {yay!}.

Something pretty exciting did happen in August though…and I even managed to take a few pics to capture the moment…

Transitioning to Fall Style

This year I would be lying if I said I was ready for Fall…and here’s my reasoning behind it:

One: It rained a lot at the beginning of summer leaving us with less days to actually enjoy the nice weather.

Two:  I haven’t had a chance to wear all of my summer clothes yet.

Three: The longer we push out summer the longer fall we will have…right!?

Makes perfect sense to me 😉

But it is time to slowly start weeding out some of my brightly-colored summer clothing and transitioning over to a few fall pieces as we get closer to Labor Day weekend {aka when fall officially begins for me}.

6 Brilliant Moving Tips

In case you haven’t noticed it’s been a little quiet around here lately. My apologizes! I have been spending a lot of time preparing for my next big lifestyle change…moving out of the Purple Palace.

It’s definitely going to be a bittersweet change, but I will talk more about all of that soon. Today I’d like to spend some time talking moving. Nobody likes to move {myself included}, but when you search Pinterest for some inspirational moving tips I think it makes moving seem a little more exciting.

Well…maybe exciting isn’t the best word to use. It helps make your move a little more organized. Here are some of the brilliant moving tips I ran across and fully intend on using when I start packing…
