{scarf tutorial}

 
Now that the weather has cooled down and my scarves have come out to play, I thought it would be fun to share a little video tutorial of my favorite, simple ways to wear my scarves. If you can fold and tie, you can do all of these. :)


More great ideas...

{fall fashion wish list...tights}


So far I've shared with you my fall fashion wish lists for scarves and comfy, oversized sweaters. Today is devoted to one of my absolute favorite fall fashion items....tights!

I love nothing more than pulling on a cute pair of patterned or colored tights with a skirt and boots for work. It is my ultimate work wardrobe. But for some reason, my tights collection right now is really dismal. I have one dark green pair, and the rest are black, gray and brown. So I put together a little wish list of tights that I would love to have in my closet.

I love everything about this picture...from the cabled tights to the fall hues...


These polka dot tights are fun and quirky...
 


LOVE these peacock feather tights from Kohl's in a bold turquoise...

It is hard to see the pattern on these but I love how they were paired with a flowy dress and boots...


Lisa Leonard proves here that off white tights can totally work if you accessorize them well...


This mustard and navy combo is really lovely...


And I love these bold tights mixed with more neutral clothing and accessories...


Do you love to wear tights? Have you ventured out into bold colors or do you stick with the neutrals?

{our fall dining table}


Happy Monday friends! I hope you all had a great weekend!

Mine was filled with meetings for work, but I did manage to sneak in some good time with family and a few photos of my dining room table all dressed up for fall.

Of course it includes some of my favorite things...acorns and owls!





 I love how it looks in front of our fall mantel...


And I couldn't help but include this adorable photo of Landon taking his own pictures of the centerpiece with his itty bitty camera. Future blogger for sure. ;)


Have you pulled out your fall decorations? What are your favorite pieces and colors to use to decorate for the season?

{fall fashion wish list...scarves}


If you follow me on Instagram or check out my WIWW posts, it will be NO surprise to you that I love a good scarf.

I'm sooo insanely happy that the weather has cooled off so I can pull all of my cozy neck wrapping goodness out of my closet. And despite what my hubby might say, I could definitely add a few more to my wardrobe. ;)

This past week I wore this fun new patterned one I picked up at Charming Charlie...


And yesterday I wore one that I made last year {it is so soft and cozy for chilly fall mornings}...


Here are a few that have caught my eye recently...

Hearts! So.Cute.


Fun polka dots...


A neutral tan to go with everything...


A great pattern in autumn hues...


This one looks super comfy...



Do you love scarves? What pattern/style are you wanting to add to your fall wardrobe?

And I thought it would be fun to do a little video showing you my favorite ways to wear my scarves...are you all game? Hopefully I can put it together in the next few days, so stay tuned!

Ooh and don't forget to enter my bubble necklace giveaway! You can enter until midnight EST tonight!!
