It is officially fall and officially my favorite time of the year! We are experiencing cool mornings and really beautiful afternoons here in Houston. The boys and I love being able to spend the afternoons running around outside again (without having a heat stroke). Oh, and did I mention the pumpkins?! Knox loves all the pumpkins around town right now. We went to a local nursery and picked out some to bring home and Knox picked out a ‘big brother’ and a ‘baby brother’ pumpkin for himself and ‘baby’ as he refers to Andrew. We have plans to decorate them with friends this week. I have to admit; I am pretty excited about this myself. But, it takes a lot of self-control on my part to actually let Knox decorate and not take over. (Or maybe that’s just a little OCD coming out in me!)
I also love this time of year for the light layering like pairing this simple white blouse under your dresses. This blouse is a perfect layering blouse because it isn’t so bulky so it lies nicely under sweaters and dresses. This little trick is my favorite way to ease into fall and I love that it doesn’t take away anything from the dress like wearing a jacket on top might.
I wish you could feel this dress through the computer! It is so soft and stretchy that I forgot I was wearing a dress at all. Seriously, you could sleep in this thing! Which also makes it a perfect travel dress or mom dress because you don’t have to worry about it wrinkling when you are toting your babies around.
