FREE PEOPLE TREAT YOUR BODY & SPIRIT EVENT







Last Saturday I had the pleasure of attending my local Free People's Treat Your Body & Spirit event! You may or may not know this, but I am a HUGE Free People fan - everything from their clothes, social channels and way of life speaks to my soul (no, seriously, I'm a FP girl for life), so I was very excited to have the opportunity to attend this local event. The morning consisted of a free class from Pure Barre, juice tastings from Sip Juice Bar and Chakra readings by Aveda. It definitely was a fun morning and my only wish was that I could have stayed longer. Thanks for having me, Free People Chandler!

LUNCH AT MACY'S



Any time that we find ourselves in Flagstaff, Arizona, we like making the trip downtown to Macy's for a quick coffee or lunch out on the patio. When we arrived in Flagstaff this time around it was nearly lunchtime, so we decided to park the car and walk along the changing colored leaves to Macy's.



To be honest, I'm not even sure how we found out about Macy's. This quaint European coffee shop has been a staple in the Flagstaff community for years now, so I'm sure that somewhere along our travels over the years someone must have told us to stop in there. Whoever it was, I'm sure glad they did. The atmosphere there, especially in the fall in winter, is quaint and dreamy. Think Stars Hollow with a dash of that Flagstaff hippie vibe mixed in.







After we ordered inside and got our hot americanos to-go, we stepped outside and scored a spot at one of their tiny tables along the front of the coffee shop. We had a few minutes before our food came, so we sipped our coffees and admired the changing leaves together - yellow, red and orange - the colors that day were out of this world. For lunch, we had a classic Macy's dish - grilled cheese and a side. Scott had a southwest soup, which looked delicious, and I had salad with their house dressing. The grilled cheese was SO good and the bread was so thick. MMM!



Oh, don't mind us. Just two newlyweds taking in the fall weather. ;)





After we finished up our lunch we headed out for a little stroll around the quaint neighborhood surrounding Macy's. We were on the hunt for more changing leaves and boy did we find them!

Do you have a favorite coffee shop that you alway have to visit when you go out of town?

THE PUMPKIN PATCH



BOO! Did I scare you? Maybe a little? Alright, maybe not at all, but it is the most spooky time of year so I thought I would give it a try! Lately I've been getting my fill of Halloween movies and spooky shows. Hocus Pocus, Halloweentownn, Halloweentown 2 - you know, all the basics. I also watched a few specials on the most haunted places in America and may have scared myself silly while watching them alone, at night, with all of the lights off - whoops.  






A few weekends back, Scott and I spent some time at a local pumpkin patch, Mother Nature's Farm. We've been going to this pumpkin patch in the middle of the city for years now, and every year it's just as adorable as the last. It was pretty warm out the day when we went, but the tiny pumpkins sure seem to put us in an Autumn mood. This past weekend we went to another, much larger pumpkin patch with a few years for a fun photoshooot and I absolutely can't wait to share those photos with ya'll very soon!





A sweet girl that saw us struggling to take a photo together offered to snap one of us because we looked "just so darn cute surrounded by the pumpkins." She was seriously the sweetest and we're happy to have this little memory forever. This week Scott is in New York City for a conference and I'm seriously missing him. We haven't really been a part in a long, long time, so it's strange not having him here, but I know that's he's having the best time in NYC and I'm so happy for him to have this amazing opportunity. As I type this, he's sending me photos of the Highline and it's making me dream of a NYC getaway - one day soon, I swear!

What did ya'll do this weekend? Anything spooky or fall related? I would love to hear all about it!

TEAL TALK X PIPERLIME



Hello! Today I'm teaming up with Piperlime to style up two items that not only showcase my personal style, but also highlight this years Fall/Winter trends. This sweet navy bird dress speaks to not only my love for little birds, but also my passion for the color navy- an on-point color for the season. The second item Piperlime sent my way, these simple nude flats, also show off my love for all things classic, but the metallic bottoms give them that edgy twist that I love. To top off the outfit, I threw on my new favorite biker jacket that I bought after hearing my sweet friend Ashley rave about it. I'll definitely be repeating this outfit when it gets a little cooler out with a pair of black tights and a cozy scarf!

The last few days have been absolutely crazy around here. Scott and I have been so busy working, but also having a little fun. On Monday, after a long weekend helping out at the Tempe Oktoberfest, we took a quick day trip up to Flagstaff to see the leaves change, which was magical. Yesterday, Scott and I attended a lecture with some of his classmates and got to take a tour of the newly restored Newton with the man who developed the project himself (which was WAY cool because had the chance to learn about the history behind the old Beef Eaters restaurant in Mid-town Phoenix and see where it is today). Tonight, I'm headed to meet Scott after work for a private event that Urban Outfitters is throwing for all of their Arizona Dreamers & Doers. This Friday is finally the Dreamers and Doers market at the UO location on Mill Avenue from noon to 6pm and Scott and I will be selling his handmade pieces from Citizen Home Decor. If you're local, we hope to see you there!
