Fall Jackets

Fall is most definitely here on the East Coast! There is a crispness in the air in the morning that is lingering into the afternoons. Leaves have changed and are starting to fall and we are spending our Sunday’s glued to the TV watching football! There is no better time than the present to talk about that transitional fall jacket.

One of my favorite fall clothing staples is a great jacket! One that you can throw on in the morning, afternoon or evening and it provides enough warmth while out and about. It’s not cold enough yet in Upstate New York for a full blown winter coat (although that time is coming…) so I want to share some of my favorite light weight jackets this season!

I’ve found some adorable options that can be worn year after year! So let’s get started . . .


This Northface Pink Jacket is so awesome! I’ve been living in it all fall. I love the bright color which is not something I typically pick out. It is perfect to throw on for a quick run (not too heavy) or just a trip to target, I even wore it on a chilly night in August to a concert!


Another go to store for me is Old Navy! This Old Navy jean jacket is so perfect and light weight! I’m always on the hunt for good basics such as this that I think can be worn year round and dressed up or down. I love that Old Navy offers affordable cute options!

I think a good leather jacket is a must in every girl’s closet! I have had this leather Jacket for a few months, I love it! It is great to throw on for a night out and it is a little “edgier” than something I normally go with.

A few other great options you can’t go wrong with this fall is a good trench coat & pea coat! These are such classics that never go out of style, many of these options can be worn in the spring as well.


Happy Shopping!

Fall Fun

The first official day of Fall is this week! It has felt like Fall in upstate NY for a few weeks now, but still making it “official” is one step closer to WINTER!

I wanted to share some of the “Fall Fun” we plan to do this season as well as some things we have already done!

1. Football! We look forward to Football season all-year round. My husband is a big fan and he is slowly turning the kids into little fans. We have already attended one game this season!



2. SCHOOL! Kellan started school a few weeks ago and it’s been a fun transition for us all. We are newbies to school so I’m sure I’ll be #overit by the end of the year. But, for now, we are enjoying the fundraising, book fairs, and daily chats about school.


3. Apple picking! Upstate NY has no shortage of great apple orchards. We have a couple to choose from within a few miles of our house. A lot of the orchards also offer cider, tractor rides, homemade goodies and pumpkin picking! This is all right up my families alley. I’m trying to contain myself and not go EVERY weekend but it’s so fun!


So, clearly we have had no shortage of “Fall Fun” already and it’s only Mid-September! Things I’d love to do still:

  1. Pumpkin picking
  2. Trick or treating
  3. More leaf pile jumping
  4. Apple pie making
  5. Lots of fall walks because #winteriscoming

Share your favorite fall actitives in the comments! I’m sure I’m missing so many awesome ones.
