Autumnal Shades

“Fall has always been my favorite season. The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale.” ― Lauren DeStefano, Wither.

That's probably one of the truest quotes I have ever read about the fall season. The magnificent colors that the fall season brings to New York never fail to take my breath away. I had the pleasure of going to Modena, NY last weekend with my family, and on the drive there, the foliage was just bursting with color. Although cloudy and crisp, some spot showers here and there, it was the perfect opportunity to wear some "perfect-for-fall-colored" pieces from Aritzia, not to mention my new watch courtesy of Daniel Wellington. My boyfriend and I enjoyed our first trip apple picking together, even though it involved a lot more photo-taking than actual apple picking.

When people talk about fall, apple picking comes to mind, warm cider, leaves falling, pumpkin spice. Many also talk about the beautiful influence this time of the year has on New York City, however driving further north of the city truly is something else. I doubt that I could live anywhere else that doesn't have a season like this, I'm far too in love with the colors, weather, and the fashion that comes along with it. I wore a simple tee under this camel colored sweater and a cozy banket scarf to wrap myself in, all from Aritzia. I can't help but wear my Stuart Weitzman "Lowland" OTK boots as well, the latest addition to my designer shoe collection. I was able to get the last pair available on Forward by Elyse Walker because it just happened to be my size! I took it as a sign and ordered it right away. As stated in my last entry, this Daniel Wellington watch just came in time for the fall season because I've been looking for the perfect brown-strapped watch to wear with many outfits! You can find your perfect everyday watch on their website, full of wonderful pieces. You can also find them on Instagram at @danielwellingtonwatches/#danielwellington.

Since my boyfriend and I officially hit three and a half years this Sunday, I thought I'd include this photo of us from the weekend, which is now one of my favorite pictures of us. Without him, this blog wouldn't be possible. He has always given me that extra push and is one of my biggest supporters and I'm so happy that through this blog, he and I are able to go on new adventures, see new places, and continue to grow and learn from each other in our relationship.


  1. Aritzia yaaaaaas. They are one of my favorite brands of all time. So comfortable and fall-appropriate.
