This is the second round of photos that we got from our drive up to Flagstaff a few weeks ago. I think that these are actually my favorite pictures that we've taken for my blog so far - I love how the dust from the passing cars added a whole new element of depth and dimension to them, and the moody overall feel. I'm also in love with the gorgeous landscape of tall evergreens that we NEVER get to see in hotass Phoenix! We're currently in Denver, and I hope that we end up getting some good photos to share with you from here too...the scenery is amazing (but it is downright FREEZING)! And as you can probably guess, I am basically living in my flannels...especially this one I'm wearing in these pics. Also these tailored sweats. I feel like they are the greatest trend-so easy to dress up OR down! I'm obsessed; for real a wardrobe staple.

Alright folksies, that's all for now. Can we just talk about how Thanksgiving is SO close?! What's your favorite dish that you're looking forward to?! #turkeytime #TD4W

This week I'm linking up with Lisa - you should too!

Autumn Stripes

A couple weeks ago Daniel and I took a much needed mini roadtrip into the mountains of Flagstaff to chase Fall and find some cooler weather. I've never really been one for the cold, but having lived in perpetually hot places for the past 6 years I'm starting to get a little antsy for a legitimate reason to wear one of my 400 sweaters. Even though we were there for less than 24 hours, the brisk weather was entirely rejuvenating, and I'm desperate for more of it! Thankfully we're taking another mini trip up to Denver in a few weeks-any suggestions on places to visit while we're there? I'd love to hear!

Also, I'm totally diggin stripes lately (can you tell?!). What's been your Fall go-to?

P.S. - I totally felt like John Mayer while taking these pictures. #thuglife
