J.Crew Factory: Ruffle flannel shirt | Gap Factory: Jeans | Target: Flats

It is finally starting to feel like fall here in upstate new york and I am loving it. Last week it was so hot that we had to turn the air conditioning back on! Now I am finally comfortable in my new fall pieces like this ruffle flannel shirt from J.Crew factory. This top is so soft and comfortable it is definitely going to be a favorite piece of mine this fall and winter. 

I just wore this outfit this past weekend out to lunch with my family and grandparents to celebrate my mom's birthday at our favorite Italian restaurant. 

This top also comes in a plaid print that I will probably purchase in the near future because of how soft this one is. When I originally purchased this I was really unsure about it and was planning to wear it just under a vest but I think that it looks just as cute without the vest!

Weekly Review: Yesterday was my mom's birthday and I made this raspberry cake for her which was filled with a raspberry sauce and lined with fresh raspberries. I don't bake a lot but I always love it when I do. This week I posted this post about what I did this weekend with my mom to celebrate her birthday.

Weekend Happenings: Tonight I am celebrating another birthday (October is the month of birthdays) with my best friend. We are planning to make homemade pizzas and have frozen strawberry daiquiris. Then Saturday dinner with some more friends and other than that I am hoping to have a chill relaxing weekend.

Things Happening:
If you don't know I am from upstate New York by the Albany area, this past weekend this region received some news that shook the entire capital region. On Saturday the deadliest transportation accident since 2009 happened very close to home. On Saturday a group of people were on their way to a birthday celebration in Cooperstown when the limo crashed on the way killing all 18 people inside and 2 bystanders. This tragic event has been consuming my mind thinking of all of the innocent people and their families. I have decided to add a couple of links to places that you could donate if you would like. I am keeping the families of these innocent people in my prayers.

JCrew: Flower Vest | JCrew: Teddie Sweater | Gap: Jeans | Target: Flats | Vince Commuto: Luck Tote

I have a serious thing for J.Crew vests in the fall months and this may or may not be one of the many J.Crew vests that you see even within this month. I picked this one up the other week and I fell in love with it because it can go with so many different outfit combinations as well as different seasons. I knew I had to get this one when the manager told me they had it in the store for less than 24 hours and this was the last one they had (or at least that's how I justified myself to buy it).

Tomorrow is my mom's birthday so today I will be spending my day baking and decorating a cake! It's a surprise what type of cake it is for her but maybe on Friday, I will share what it was! Monday's post was all about what we did this past weekend for moms birthday, check it out here.

This Vince Camuto luck tote was part of the 2018 fall fabfitfun box. This bag retails for $128 and the fabfitfun box is only $50. This is why I love the fabfitfun box, the items are such a good quality and the retail value of the box is so high that it makes it so worth the price of the actual box.

This past weekend we celebrated my mom's birthday at the Brotherhood winery which is the oldest winery in America. We did a wine tasting and we took a tour and learned facts like, they actually stayed open during the prohibition to make wine for the churches.


At the winery, there was a cute little spot to sit outside and have a glass of wine while we waited to have lunch at the cafe on site. There was also a DJ outside playing music while people could stomp grapes and wine bottles of wine for the amount of juice they produced. 

At the Vinum Cafe, we ordered the most delicious cheese and a charcuterie platter for lunch. We sat outside on the back patio and listened to the cheers of the wedding going on in the distance. It was an amazing lunch with delicious food. 



After lunch, we took a tour underground to see where all of the wine is made and stored. It was fascinating to go in through these almost secret hidden tunnels filled with the product that they sell is made.
 After the tour, we had our tasting and got the chance to choose five wines that we would like to try. We also received oyster crackers to cleanse our pallet and the Brotherhood wine glass. 

After the winery, we headed back home to have dinner at mom's favorite restaurant and had cake to finish it all off!

Happy Birthday, momma!

Happy Monday! This is the start to a very busy week, but I don't have class this Saturday so I will be looking forward to the weekend this entire week. To start this week on a positive note I figured I would share a few of my favorites today.

1. Sneakers - I have talked about these shoes before but I am so in love with them that I had to feature them in my favorites post. These are actually from Target and are only 35$ which is such a good deal for a good pair of sneakers. Plus they are super comfortable. 

2. iPhone case I just purchased this phone case off of Amazon, it was only 13$! Why I love it so much it one for the price and two because it feels like the ones that apple sells which are 35$ each so it is a great dupe for those.  

3. Electric Brush Cleaner - I do not clean my makeup brushes as much as I should but using this electric brush cleaner makes it a little more fun. Right now I have a video on my Instagram stories which I will add to my favorite things highlight of using this. 

4. Wine red apple watch - I love getting new Apple watch bands, I wanted a color that was more for the fall and I am obsessed with this color. The next one I think is going to be Navy. 

5. Bare Republic dry shampoo - I received this tiny bottle of dry shampoo in one of my Ipsy bags a while back and was too nervous to try it. But the other day I was desperate for dry shampoo and I found this in my stash and I am so mad at my self for waiting so long before using this. I highly recommend and it smells like fruit loops. 

A few other favorites:
  • The Morning Toast- I am loving this podcast and how it is also YouTube. I love these two sisters they always put me in a good mood.
  • Below Deck - Now that I finished Southern Charm I needed a new show and I know I am so late to this show also but I am loving this Bravo show it's addictive. I'm starting season two today!

So today I had a completely different post planned out that was the cutest outfit that I was going to have photographed yesterday. But life got in the way and I woke up with an awful allergic reaction to the new face product I was trying out. The rain that was non stop of yesterday also contributed to the photographs not happening but also inspired this post. As much as the rain can suck and ruin plans I also think it is very calming and makes for the perfect relaxation days. Here are a few of my favorite rainy day favorites:
