SEPTEMBER SUNLIGHT

With September nearly gone, I'm seeing the days get shorter and shorter. The September sunlight is dwindling away and that of course means that October is almost here. Arguably, October is everyone's favorite autumn month, but truth be told, this year has made me love September that much more. Finally, the weather started to cooperate and Scott and I were able to start enjoying bits and pieces that we love about fall -- nightly walks in the crisp air, homemade soup and the occasional chance to wear a jacket or sweater (but let's be real, I've been wearing jackets all summer long, haha - happens when you work in a chilly office)! And this weekend? October 1st rings in on Sunday and we're celebrating by having a Hocus Pocus, Halloweentown marathon, along with a fun pop-up shop with Citizen Home Decor on Saturday at Scottsdale Fashion Square Madewell -- which I will be trying with all my might not to spend all of our earnings while were there, haha. Someone please come and hold me accountable!

This pas year, overalls have become a staple in my wardrobe! After I purchased my first pair (as an adult), the lighte version of the ones I'm rocking in these photos, I was hooked. I love that they bring such character and attitude to an easy outfit. This black denim pair became a quick purchase after I realized how much I loved and wore my other pair through the previous seasons. The material is definitely more stiff than my previous pair, but I'm digging how dressy they can be styled up with booties and a blouse. I'm sure you'll see me rocking them all autumn long! 

Since autumn rolled around, I've also been pulling out more of my autumnal beauty bits -- rust eyeshadows, plum lipsticks and deep reds that can really pull a whole look together in a snap. The liquid lipstick I'm wearing in these photos was a recommendation from one of my all-time favorite bloggers, Keiko Lynn! It's called Bang-Bang and it's from the Always On liquid lipstick range from Smashbox. I've worn it a handful of times lately and it's quickly become a favorite -- easy to apply, doesn't settle into my lips and has great staying power.

The weekend is almost here and I hope ya'll had an amazing week! The past few days were a bit of a whirlwind around here, which I shared a bit more about on Instagram last night, but it really has been an amazing past couple of days and I'm really, really excited to see what October brings our way! There might just be an upcoming getaway involved, but I'll share more on that later! ;) Oh, and on a side note -- if you have any post ideas that you would like to see come to the blog in October -- please let a gal know! Be back soon, friends!
