October Follow Fest // it's a partaaaay and a half, people!!!


welcome, welcome, welcome!!
super stoked to have the chance to co-host this awesome beyond awesome October Follow Fest! 
i'm also excited to share my own love for autumn and all that comes with it (is it not crazy hard to believe that October is nearly over?!).

when i think of autumn, i think of...


autumn fashion.

it means pulling out my favorite scarves, colored tights, sweaters and anything mustard yellow!


my type of "scary" movies.

i'm not a fan of anything gory or utterly creepy - but i do like to jump and hide behind the pillows more during this time of the year. these are a few of my favorites - hardly in the category of "horror" but enough for a scaredy-cat like me.

images via pinterest / here, here, and here

comfort food.

now i love food all year round, but there are certain foods i found myself drawn to more when the chilly temperatures roll around. and if you follow my pinterest, you'll know how often i've been pinning my food favorites. um, alot.


hilarious costumes.

i rarely dress up for halloween, but a couple years ago, my fiance and i dressed up as Yoko Ohno and John Lennon for a party my roommate and i threw. and i cannot pass October 31st without cracking up over this photo. Ryan looks pretty darn good with that hair (not - barf! i think he's hot no matter what, but just not a fan of that wiiiig!).

what does autumn mean to you?
it's YOUR turn to share!

  40. New follower :P Love the idea of the followers fest. Fall for me means beautiful colors and getting to wear boots, also it means its getting cold enough to cuddle in a sweater and drink hot coco. LOve fall, and your outfits are just perfect for Fall.

  80. Thanks for stopping by Illy~ you're super sweet! *^_^* Our Honeymoon was excellent and super romantic- we had a view of Osaka Castle outside our hotel window (the castle was across the street from us). Japan was so great!

    You should totally learn to knit, it's a bit awkward at first, but once you get the hang of it, it's addicting. :D

    As far as Katy Perry, I just have to find the right way to confront it. ;) Twitter might not be noticed, but if I go up in person and scream "GIVE ME MY FACE BACK!" I may be arrested which could be a downer. haha
