pumpkin picking

One of my favorite things to do when fall comes around is to get a pumpkin! I'm not really sure why this is--I guess it just brings out my inner child!

Thinking about hunting for the perfect pumpkin inspired me to put together a comfy, cozy outfit for braving the chilly weather at the pumpkin patch. Warm neutrals with a pop of this season's "it" color, burgundy, exude style without being too over-the-top. After all, it's just a pumpkin patch. Which may include a stop at the local Starbucks for a pumpkin spice latte. xo.

Attention fellow four-eyed friends, there is now a stylish and budget-friendly way to sport specs. Introducing: BonLook! A similar concept to the [in my opinion] more widely recognized company, Warby Parker, BonLook sells fashionable frames for a fraction of the cost of other optical wear retail chains. Most frames are $99 with free shipping and easy returns.

Anyway, I recently had an eye exam and decided it was time for a new pair of glasses. I'm most often a contacts girl, but every now and then I like to give my ol' eyeballs a rest. Though Warby Parker has an equally adorable array of frame shapes, I ultimately loved a pair from BonLook the most! Here are a few of my favorites from BonLook:

I went with #1, "Cavelier," in black. See the FAQ page for tips on how to choose a frame that best complements your face shape! For many styles, BonLook offers the option to upload a photo of you so you can try on the frames virtually before you make a purchase. It's pretty awesome! Have you ordered from BonLook before? What are you favorite frames? xo.

fort worth happy hour | the live oak

So evidently, my summer bucket list has transitioned to fall. Nevertheless, I'm happy to say I've crossed yet another item off my list! As you can tell from the blog post title, I finally made it to The Live Oak for some happy hour drinks with a friend last Friday afternoon. It was absolutely perfect weather--breezy and cool. We sat on the rooftop [of course] to bask in the autumn glory and look out onto Magnolia Avenue with the Downtown skyline in the not-too-far distance.

Happy hour at The Live Oak consists of $1 off pints, $3 wells, and half off appetizers. We indulged in a few wells and split an order of calamari. I must say the lemon aioli dip was delicious! It was a perfect complement to the calamari. Overall, the atmosphere was perfect for a relaxing happy hour. Next time, I hope to catch some live music!

Pretty lights in the trees! I'll take more photos next time, I promise!

Fort Worthians: Have you been to The Live Oak? What's your favorite spot on Magnolia? xo.

Oh, how I love this cool weather! Granted, it's much harder to drag myself out of bed in the mornings, but it's perfect for coffee-drinking and bundling up in layers of warmth.

love & lust | boyfriend watches

Until recently, I haven't been much of a watch girl [I'm guilty of checking my iPhone whenever I need to know the time] but lately I've been loving the style and functionality of boyfriend watches. They are perfect accessories to dress up my wrist candy/arm party. I love that the Michael Kors watch mixes silver and rose gold, so it pretty much goes with anything. However, the price tag is not ideal which is why this Target watch is a perfect wallet-friendly swap, saving you $250! I actually went out and bought the Target watch this past weekend and am L-O-V-I-N-G it. xo.

monday must-haves

First of all: Happy October!

Second: I've got wrist candy fever. Any and all sparkly, colorful, and unique wrist baubles make me absolutely starry-eyed! I'm especially into anything with some gold in it, since I've just noticed that I've got plenty of silver jewelry. I rounded up some adorable little treasures from a few of my current favorite online shops but would love if you could share a few of your go-to online jewelry boutiques! xo.
