Finally the trees decided to change colors and the leaves were looking gorgeous on the ground! My most favoritest (yes that’s a word now) season ever is Fall, and being from Utah I am used to seeing Autumn in full colorful force! I was totally okay with moving to California for Bible College UNTIL my mom told me that there would be no fall over here because there were basically no trees! (just Joshua trees and palm trees oh and can’t forget about those tumbleweeds #desertlife lol)
At that time it was too late to make a U-turn and head back to Utah! No totally kidding! But today to my surprise the few trees that were on campus were turning colors and the leaves were falling! SCORE!
And in time for thanksgiving! I adore this quote ! An attitude of gratefulness is the key to a happy heart! It’s sometimes easy to take things for granted, even the smallest of things, but once I realize that everything I ”own” is not really mine, but they’re daily blessings from God! Something that has helped me daily, is this quote: ”Whatever happens in my life, whether good or bad, I deserve worse.” Its so true!! God has and will always be merciful even when we don’t deserve!
I love me a good blanket scarf! They’re warm, soft, and double as a blanket when you need one!
They literally elevate any outfit and turn it into a fall/holiday outfit! Over the past year they’ve become more affordable! I’ve seen them as low as $8 on Jane.com! (LOVE Jane!)
Look #1: Hunter Green Jersey Dress+ Plaid Blanket Scarf
I received this Hunter Green Jersey dress from my lovely friends at Kingdom & State! It is a winter must-have! I ADORE the fact that it is a structured jersey dress with strong shoulders for a chic, minimalistic look!
On that day I wore this outfit there were freezing winds! (Hello Lancaster!) I was so thankful that this dress was keeping me warm all day! Not only is it warm, but oh so comfy like pajamas! It was the perfect cozy fall outfit!
Kingdom and State is offering all you guys a 20% OFF their entire website!
Just by using the code ”ASHLEY20” ! I have linked the dress down below!
Look #2: Blanket Scarf as an open cardigan/ shawl!
I have been meaning to try this Pinterest scarf tip ever since I purchased my blanket scarf! It was so simple! All you do is fold the scarf into a triangle and drape it over your shoulders as a cardigan and belt it! So chic and not to mention extremely cozy! As always cognac accessories are my obsession! This dress is perfect for Thanksgiving because it stretches! LOL
Look #3: Cozy Sweaters, Pleated Cognac Skirts & A Blanket Scarf!
The next outfit was probably one of my favorites for fall! It consisted of rich fall colors and mixtures of textures!
I found the most cozy cream colored sweater in non other than the Walmart aisle! I know I was pretty shocked myself! I would definitely check out the clothing section at Walmart! I have found the cutest skirts and plaid shirts for dirt cheap!
The star of this outfit is none other than this stunning cognac colored pleated leather midi skirt!! EEK! You guys I cannot express how happy I was when I received it in the mail! I have been searching for the longest time ever for a cognac colored skirt and the lovely ladies at Blue Rose Apparel were sweet enough to gift it to me! I am always thrilled to discover new modest clothing sites! Especially when the quality is outstanding like this skirt! I am guilty of never wearing an exact outfit twice but I couldn’t help but to wear this outfit again and in the same week at that too! (shhh don’t tell the fashion police!)
I love this skirt so much and I know you’d adore it too! So I found y’all a coupon code for 15%OFF anything on the website using the coupon code : ”thanksgiving” valid now through Sunday (11-29-15)!
