Fall Fest

HAY there guys! See what I did there, in reference to the photo? See? Ahem. Anyway, Over the weekend my family and Zak and I attended the Fall Fest at a local nature center and my goodness did I have a good time. It's exactly what I've been wanting to do since fall began. Walk around a beautiful natural setting, seeing all the leaves changing colors, making scarecrows, picking pumpkins. Perfect! So, since I'm a little bit exhausted, I'll just post pictures and captions to tell my Fall Fest story :)

So, we walked in and I ran over to the "build a scare crow" section of the field, because I had big dreams of building a handsome scare crow. They had tons of clothes to pick from to dress your scare crow up, so I picked my pieces and started stuffing. Here's the finished product:

Handsome devil, no? I was extremely proud of him, looking all fashion forward with his microscopic waist, trench coat, and cable knit sweater. He scares crows AND attracts women. See next picture, because I just had to:

See, it works! Ahem, anyway... Then I thought it would be fun to "make my own cider," mostly because I was under the impression I would be able to drink my own cider (I was wrong). I had a good time though. Did I care if I (other than zak) was the only person above five years old on the cider line? No, no I did not. The five year olds and their parents probably did though.

Then we decided to do a scavenger hunt, which allowed us to roam the grounds, see animals (prairie dogs!), and just do a lot of beautiful, scenic walking. I even found some good, though over-exposed..., places for some outfit photos

Dress: Thrift, Vest: Delia's, Loafers: Mom's, Belt: Target, Purse: Urban Outfitters

All in all, I had a lovely time! What did you all do this weekend?

Until tomorrow,


  1. Eeep, you look so perfectly fall! I love the colors :) The blue and yellow are so cute.

  2. Well that's a bummer they didn't let you drink the cider you made! I wonder what they're going to do with it.
    Ps - You look adorable :)

  3. That sounds like a lot of fun! Bummer they didn't let you drink your own cider! (And we have also been the only adults in lines for activities that are fun for ALL ages!) Super cute outfit! I love the colors, and that dress is really great! :)

  4. This is what I call the PERFECT fall outfit. Pretty much anything with plaid falls under that category for me, actually :) But alas! You are also wearing two of my favorite colors! Navy blue & mustard yellow.. wise choices, lady!
