Welp, fall is definitely here in Nashville. The nights are in the 50’s, there’s frost on the windows as the sun comes up, and the cement back porch is freezing on my bare feet if I wander out there in the morning to catch a few rays of sun. I’m definitely more of a summer person, but I do love those early fall days when the temperature is in the low 70’s and sunny- it’s basically perfect park weather if you ask me. I also am a sucker for pretty boots and big furry coats sooo I do kind of love getting all of those out each year too. Anyways, I did a bit of shopping while Todd was in Europe for two weeks to find a cute fallish outfit for an afternoon date when he came back. Having little things like that to look forward to are really important for me when he’s gone. While I was so glad to get to spend some one-on-one time with our sweet Lola, it was certainly exhausting to say the least to take care of her and work and run the house all by myself. It felt like the longest two weeks of my life for sure!
Anyways, when he did return we got to go to our fave brunch spot in town (Sky Blue Cafe!) which was a big treat since we hadn’t been there since Lola was born and it was so nice to catch up a bit and grab a coffee soda afterwards and enjoy the perfect weather together.
Overall Dress/ Forever 21, Boots/ Aldo (similar), Bag c/o the Fix, Sunnies/ Forever 21 (similar)
To add some subtle fun to the bag (I love round purses lately BTW) I added a furry pom pom in the same color (like this one). Probably my fave 90’s trend right now is the choker comeback. I can get a little weird about having tight things near my neck so I tend to do the more delicate ones and layer a gold choker set instead of the super thick ones. Maybe I’ll ease into the more dramatic designs later? Overall dresses are great for the transition from summer to fall since you can wear them with tank tops or long sleeve shirts as the weather changes so I may get a few more pairs (maybe in white perhaps?) and it will be so cute when Lola can fit into cute pink ones like these. I’ve already gotten her some furry coats and boots so I can’t wait to see her in those in a few months!
Our friends Stacy and Darren were kind enough to watch Lola for the afternoon for our date and they said she was a perfect angel and didn’t make a peep the whole time. She did however, as you can see above, have her first cuddle session with her gal pals and it’s so sweet that it just melts my heart! It’s so important to have a few hours here and there to reconnect with Todd so I want to make sure that we keep doing that as she gets older. And going out for brunch isn’t exactly punishment either so that’s a good motivation as well.
Taking Baby Lola out on the tour bus this week to start the fall tour with Todd! Wish us luck!!
Wow- what fun! Should be an exciting time, and you get to spend time with Todd which is wonderful ?. Maybe I’ll see you at the New Haven or Brooklyn shows- so looking forward to hearing MM again!!
This outfit is sooooooo goooood! ♥
Such a cute outfit! Also must be so nice to get some time with Todd! I don’t know how you manage being separated, especially with a new baby–My husband and I don’t like separation either!
Adorable pic of Lola with Darren and Stacy’s kids! Darren & Stacy are so classy, not to mention Darren is a kick-a** drummer! Give them our best!
