Hey everyone! I hope that your weekend has been a good one. We have had some gorgeous fall weather here in Indiana. I wish it would stay like this year round! Last night, we had dinner at my parents' house to celebrate my birthday, which is coming up this week. Tonight, we took Adelyn trick or treating to a few places. She dressed as Peppa Pig. She loved wearing her costume and also loved seeing all of the kids dressed up. We had a lot of fun!


I've rounded up a few of my favorite fall looks from Instagram for you. If you wish, you can follow my Instagram account here for daily outfit inspiration. Thank you so much for reading. Have a safe and Happy Halloween!!

Current Faves

Number One This Absolutely Blooming perfume by Dior is one of my faves. It has a nice floral scent, which is usually my go to scent with perfumes. It is strong enough to last the entire day, but is not too overwhelming. I cannot handle strong scents. They just get to me and give me a headache, but this one seems to be just right.


Number Two I picked this Stila eyeliner up at Sephora because I wanted to see what the hype was all about. This one did not disappoint! It goes on so smooth and the tip does not require any sharpening. It is a new favorite of mine and I am not sure that I will ever use anything else again!


Number Three I have this Life is Good sweatshirt in a different color, but the same shirt. I have been living in it! I love a lightweight sweatshirt for fall and I don't do hooded pullover sweatshirts, usually. They just bother me. This one is perfect and I might need another one, we'll see.


Number Four What can I say, Prana scarves get me every single time! I love this one with tons of great colors. It can be styled in so many ways.


Number Five I'm loving this beanie hat for fall. I might have ordered Adelyn one in her size to match mine. It is the cutest!


Number Six I love this gray striped sweater from Target. It is such a great lightweight sweater for fall!


Number Seven Ok, so these are my favorite shoes of all time! They come in like five different colors and I want every color! Is anyone else like that? You find something that you love and then you feel the need to buy one in every color that they make?


Happy Friday! We made it through another week. Do you have any fun plans for Halloween weekend? We are planning to take Adelyn trick or treating on Sunday evening. Other than that, I am not really sure what the weekend has in store for us. The weather is supposed to be perfect here, so I am excited about that! Have a great weekend and thanks for reading!

Master Bedroom Reveal

I wanted to share our master bedroom with all of you today. I have been working on this room for quite awhile now. This room was one of our least favorite rooms in our house and we decided that it needed a little revamping. We started out with the wall color being a very dark tan color, which made the room always seem so dark! I found this bedspread on sale at Target for such a great price and I could not pass it up. It is really comfortable too! Next, I picked a very light gray color of paint (Evening White by Behr) and got to work. Painting has got to be one of my least favorite things to do, but it is very rewarding in the end! I really love this color and how it brightened up the room. My sister painted this abstract for us and I think it just fits perfectly! I wanted something with a little pop of color, but wanted to keep the room fairly simple overall. I had been searching everywhere for the perfect jewelry box and I found exactly what I was looking for at Target and it is currently on sale! We had the lamps and some of the other decor already, so this was a fairly inexpensive transformation. I am really happy with the way it turned out! Thanks for stopping by and have a great Wednesday!

Hey everyone! I hope that you all had a great weekend. Ours was spent soaking up some gorgeous fall weather! Yesterday, my sister and I did a little shopping. We are getting ready to go on vacation in a few weeks and we are getting excited! I need to start packing. The last time we went, I didn't start packing until the day before we left and I think that made it more stressful. Although, if I pack too soon, I end up changing my mind about what I want to take a billion times.


Today, Im sharing this lace up sweater from Francesca's. It is one of my favorites! It is sold out online, but might still be available in the store. I also linked two others that I love as well. I have a feeling that this one is going to be on major repeat this fall. This camera bag is from Jo Totes and it holds all of the necessities when I am out shooting photos. It has multiple pockets and zip compartments. I really love it! I received these earrings in my current Rocksbox and I love them!

Mom Style

Hello everyone! Today I'm styling this super casual look, which is my kind of style about 95% of the time. Since I am a stay at home mom, I usually dress for comfort. And let's be real, I only wash my hair every couple of days. Before I had Adelyn, I washed my hair daily, but nowadays, Adelyn's nap time consists of me catching up on housework, doing laundry and blogging when I am able. I have been trying to wear less makeup lately as well, because I really hate putting toxic chemicals on my body! I try and wear natural products when possible, but I feel like the less, the better!


I am loving any kind of plaid for fall. This hooded jacket is from Magnolia Boutique. It is lightweight and the hood is detachable. It will be great for layering under a heavier jacket this winter. This backpack is one of my favs. It allows me to be hands free since I feel like I am always carrying a million things out the door when we leave the house. I hope that your week is going great! Thanks for reading!

Hello! I wanted to share a few pics from our covered bridge trip to Mansfield, Indiana. I went with my sister, my mom and two of my mom's friends. We try and go every year and always have so much fun! This year, the weather could not have been more perfect. We all dressed warm for the early morning, but the temperature reached nearly 70 degrees later on. There was any food imaginable there! I did take most of my own food due to food allergies, but I did find a couple of things there that I could have. We all found a lot of neat stuff to purchase. A few of my purchases included a Tupperware salsa maker, a beaded necklace made in Africa, a doll and kids paint book for Adelyn. It was a blast and I cannot wait to go again next year! I hope that your weekend was great! Thanks for stopping by!

Hello everyone! As you are reading this post, I am traveling to a covered bridge festival. I have gone to this festival several times and it is always so much fun! There is booth after booth of crafts, antiques, food (anything fried that you could ever imagine) and misc items. You just never know what you are going to find. One year, we even got to meet Rupert Boneham from Survivor! I will let you all know next week on the blog how it went.


Today, Im styling this striped dress from Piace Boutique. I just love the colors of this dress and I added this utility jacket for a nice fall touch. These ankle booties are some of my favorites and they are on sale at Target. I hope that you all have an awesome weekend! Thanks for reading!

Hey everyone! I hope that your weekend was great! Joe spent the weekend on a river trip with his friends, so Adelyn and I had a fun girls weekend! We stayed with my sister on Saturday night and had a small get together at her place. We had a blast!! The weather here has been perfect lately, with the most gorgeous October blue skies!


This sweater is from last year. I loved it so much that I bought it in two different colors. The exact sweater is back in stock this season in six different colors. It has a high/low hem and is so comfortable! It runs a little big, so size down. I received the necklace and bracelet in my Rocksbox this time and I love them both! You can use code admatthews83xoxo to receive your first month of Rocksbox for free. Have a great day and thanks for reading!
