One of the best parts of the weather cooling off is all the fun layering pieces I get to pull out. A favorite every year that never seems to go out of style is a great utility jacket. The classic shape endures year after year. The colors, patterns and pockets may change but the general idea of a utility jacket will never die. And if it does, I might die with it!
Needless to say, if you grab one of these jackets you will find yourself wearing it non-stop! They look bomb over a t-shirt dress with sneakers or booties. I love it with jeans and a thin sweater. You can even pair it with leggings, tennis shoes and a graphic tee depending on the color you get. Really there are TONS of options and your closet deserves this kind of versatility!
To-Do This Fall
Now that the pumpkins are out and it is officially fall, there are so many fun things I want to do before it gets cold! Here are my top picks for the autumn weather:
Decorate your front porch with pumpkins and buy a pumpkin scented candle…just trust me on this one
Plan a bonfire with friends - bonus points for making s’mores
Attend a high school football game and drink hot chocolate
Take a drive to the mountains when the leaves are changing
Visit a pumpkin patch
Watch Hocus Pocus
Go to a haunted trail or haunted house
Make chili and biscuits for dinner
Take pics of your pup in the fall leaves
Drink at least one Pumpkin Spice Latte (had to)
Host friends on college game day and eat chips and dip until you drop
Contribute to your family Thanksgiving…don’t let mom do all the cooking! Try some of these Pioneer Woman sides if you aren’t sure what to bring!
Text the people you love and tell them how thankful you are for them.
Buy a brand new, cozy, chunky sweater - you deserve it
Rock a beanie and side braid when the temps cool down
Go for a walk or a hike in a scenic area
Go apple picking
Make pumpkin bread
Cozy up on the couch and watch scary movies and eat popcorn
Surely if you complete just a few items on the Fall To-Do List, you’ll be in the spirit! Now, if you need me, I’ll be sitting on the couch with Nala and Hunter, watching Hocus Pocus and eating popcorn while a pumpkin spice candle burns and chili cooks in the crock pot. :-) Happy fall, y’all!
