      These are definitely some of my favorite blog photos that I've posted in a long time! How amazing are these fall leaves?! I'm telling y'all- I truly was home for peak fall foliage this past weekend up in Maine. 

     After church on Sunday my dad and I were actually on our way to one of the local beaches to take these pictures, but I made him stop the car as we passed by a local sandwhich shop. It's a seasonal place that's already closed for the season, but the trees near the parking lot were all changing colors and the light was perfect! So as cars kept driving by I did all of these photos. I hope that no one that I knew from high school drove by... #smalltownprobs :-)

    So my trip home was my first time wearing my Tory Burch riding boots that I bought during the NSale this summer! I was so excited to finally be wearing them, and yet also so nervous! I kept thinking that something would happen to them in the airport- I literally didn't want to let go of them to let them to through the security scanners haha. Anyways, I absolutely love how they look in this outfit. They're just dressy enough to wear with my favorite fall and winter dresses, and yet they look great with casual jeans outfits too! Y'all will be seeing a lot more of them in the months (and years?!) to come! They were definitely an item worth splurging on. The only problem is now I want all sorts of Tory Burch shoes.... 

     Bow back dresses like the one that I'm wearing here were really in last year, and yet I didn't get my hands on one until this summer! Pink Slate Boutique had this adorable one on sale on their website a couple of months ago so I knew I had to scoop it up, and I'm so happy that I did. Like my riding boots, it can also be dressed up or down! This outfit is what I wore for church on a chilly fall morning, but I could see this outfit also being worn for a fall date night, or a dressy family part or girls' night out.
