5 Easy Ways to Revamp Your Home for Fall

The harvest season reminds us that it’s time to slow down, bundle up and take sometime to nest and reinvest in family and friends. Opposite of the spring and summer seasons full of busy activities, travel and outdoor pursuits, the fall is about recouping and recovering. If you’re hoping to give your home a seasonal makeover that will leave you feeling calm and cozy, there are plenty of ideas to consider.

Here are five easy ways to revamp your home for the chillier days of fall:

Focus on Foliage 

Forget the flowers, fall is all about the foliage. From birch wood mantle pieces to leave garlands and tons of twigs and piles of pinecones, fall is the season to celebrate nature’s bounty. Find inexpensive tree trimmings on walks outdoors or faux foliage from local craft stores.

Decorate the Dining Space

Nothing screams fall fun more so than a table filled with autumn accessories. From pumpkin scented candles to orange napkins and glittery gourds, this table is ready to deliver for a harvest happy hour.

Light Up a Few Lanterns

There’s something eternally spooky about dark metal lanterns. Perfectly suited for setting an eerie mood, candle filled lanterns are ideal for creating a cozy but creepy ambiance.

Pumpkin Party

Nothing says fall like a big pile of pumpkins. Whether ceramic, glass or rattan, a group of these beloved winter squashes is a surefire decorative homerun in any fall-focused living room. White pumpkins are unexpected and especially chic and charming in a modern living space.

Seasonal Greeting

Harvest happy homes deserve a little entryway excitement. A simple table with an inviting blanket basket and a few magazines puts even the crankiest houseguest into a state of seasonal arrest. Add a little fall flavor to any doorway table with a few autumn adornments like porcelain pumpkins, scarecrow stickers or a candy corn jar.

Dressing for a Warm Fall

Warm Fall

|  1.  |  2.  |  3.  |  4.  |  5.  |  6.  |  7.  |

The heat here in Dallas has been relentless! It has been so hard to get motivated to pull out my fall wardrobe. I went shopping last weekend and picked up so many great sweaters but I couldn’t bring myself to try them on because it is too dang hot! So, I’ve been trying to find some alternatives to lightweight jackets, knit sweaters and over-the-knee boots.

One way to convey fall through your wardrobe is to incorporate thicker fabrics in lighter silhouettes. Wearing velvet, suede, leather and knits in pieces like a camisole or mini skirt can instantly make your outfit feel seasonally appropriate. I personally love the suede mini skirt!

What’s your favorite way to dress for a warm fall?

XOXO,

Jill

After about a month long hiatus from blogging, I’m finally back. Stress has definitely gotten the best of over the last few weeks. I’ve been in one of my busiest times at work and I haven’t been able to think about much else. Luckily, we are wrapping up our projects and I’m finally able to get back into my daily routines.

Which means August and most of September have been fairly boring. I’ve just been working, catching up on sleep and trying to stay sane. But amongst all of the crazy, there has been so much good happening. I feel incredibly blessed to live the life that I do! Now, I’m gearing up for a busy personal schedule to finish out September and October.

What have y’all been up to lately?

XOXO,

Jill

Engagement Party Tips for the Bride

As if it weren’t already official, we’re getting married! We have finally decided on a wedding date, and I just can’t contain my excitement. We will be getting married at Villa Antonia in Austin, Texas on June 17, 2017.

After getting engaged in February, I knew that I wanted to take a little time before planning the wedding. It was important for me to enjoy our engagement before feeling the pressures of planning a wedding. So, I didn’t actually start looking for a venue until June. We were torn between having a destination wedding in Colorado or a local wedding. After lots of thought we decided to have the celebration here in Texas.

Villa Antonia was ironically the first venue we toured. I loved it so much and knew before even visiting that this was where I wanted to tie the knot. But, before signing on the dotted line, we wanted to explore all of our options. Once we visited a few different venues, compared pricing and made sure it was within our budget we came to a conclusion. There is still a ton of planning to be done, but I’m glad I have checked one box off of my mile-long wedding to do list!

XOXO,

Jill

Well, it’s August. I’m not feeling too pumped for this month because that means summer is unfortunately coming to an end. Though there really isn’t a reason for me to be upset, since I’m not in school anymore, and you don’t get summer vacation in adult world. But, I don’t think I will ever get over that feeling you have when you know summer is over.

There are very few things I can tolerate about fall and winter, but the one thing at the very top of the list would be the clothing. Cute clothes just make everything better, including working out (insert shocked emoji face here). I love jeans, boots, cozy sweaters and especially fluffy blanket scarves. It’s still way too hot to layer up, but you can still give a nod to fall by throwing a flannel or chambray around your waist. It’s a very easy styling trick that may take you back to the 90’s, but it will definitely have you feeling a little more seasonally appropriate.

On another note, I’m going to the Dixie Chicks concert here in Dallas tomorrow and I am beyond excited! That is definitely going to be one of my highlights of the summer. Are any of you Dallas girlies going to the concert?

XOXO,

Jill
