Shop My Outfit:
One of my favorite things about fall is the beautiful pumpkins and colorful mums in fall hues. Luckily I have been able to enjoy a lot of fall decor because Birmingham has several darling local garden shops around. Birmingham definitely has that southern charm, y’all!
Recently a friend from high school moved to Birmingham and we were able to reconnect. Her fiancé grew up here, so they moved here to be closer to family. It really is a small world! We met up for brunch and she took these pictures. She is a talented photographer, and it was so refreshing to have someone who actually enjoyed taking photos (sorry Jake!).
Before brunch we walked around the cutest garden shop, Leaf & Petal. Leaf & Petal has several locations throughout the city, but this one is conveniently located in an adorable shopping area, Mountain Brook Village. They have the most unique pumpkins, gorgeous mums and beautiful wreaths. I could spend hours walking around and enjoying their beautiful plants and pumpkins.
Since we were meeting up for brunch as well, I wore this ruffle trim striped dress and felt ready for fall. The weather is finally feeling like fall as of last week, so it’s been refreshing. There is something amazing about the crisp fall air. When fall comes around I always love this burgundy shade. Now that it’s getting a little chilly at night, I can especially see myself styling this dress with tall boots and a moto jacket.
P.S. I took last week off because, as you may have seen in my last post, I started a new job unexpectedly. With less than 24 hours of notice between getting the job and starting work, I have not had time to preschedule/plan blog posts. This weekend was busy as well and we have an eventful week ahead, so I spent Sunday getting organized. I am really enjoying having a full time job again.
