Fall is finally here and this week was the first time it actually felt like fall here in Nashville. For the first few weeks of fall, we (along with the rest of the South!) were still dealing with 80+ degree weather so thick jackets, scarves, and boots were out of the question. So what do we do? We use lighter layers to give the fall feels without making the heat unbearable!
Some of my must-haves for fall are kimonos (seriously, give me all of them), utility jackets, basic tees, and a classic green vest. It's important to pick lighter options that aren't going to be too hot if the weather goes from 65-80 before you leave the office for lunch. For me, kimonos are great because they give you the comfy, layered look we all love for fall but they're so thin that you can wear them on even the hottest days and be just fine. I also love a good utility jacket because you can throw it on over anything (even your favorite all black outfit!) and have fall vibes just like that!
What are your favorite pieces for fall? I'd love to know what pieces you absolutely cannot live without!
If you're following me on Instagram, you know that I just got back from visiting my brother in Fort Collins, Colorado about two weeks ago. If you aren't following me, you definitely should be! Enough about Instagram, let's talk about FOCO!
If there's one thing we can all agree on about Colorado, it's that the state is absolutely beautiful. It's one of those places where you can be in the city and drive just minutes to an area where the sounds of the city disappear and you're left with nothing but peace and quiet. Everywhere I turned, I was greeted by a breathtaking view and I absolutely loved my time there.
Horsetooth Reservoir- just minutes from town, the res is tucked away in the foothills like a scene from a painting. With hiking, swimming, boating, picnic areas, and so much more, you're sure to find something for everyone here.
Estes Park- about an hour drive from Fort Collins, you'll find the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park which is absolutely a must-see when visiting Colorado. Driving through the largest mountain range in the United States is a quick way to put things into perspective. It's incredible to me that something so massive and beautiful was created by the same person who created each of us.
Food + Drink:
Colorado Room- a quick and easy place to grab a bite in Fort Collins and if you're on the search for poutine, this is your place! We grabbed a variety of sammys and different sides across the table so we could try as much of the menu as possible!
Fat Shack- highly recommended for a post hike meal. If you're exhausted from all the exploring and looking for deliver (and one of the best milkshakes I've ever had!) give them a call and they'll have it to you in no time!
Silver Grill Cafe- brunch brunch brunch. You absolutely have to stop in and eat at this Fort Collins classic. Their cinnamon roll french toast is by far one of the best things I've ever eaten and their cinnamon rolls are basically a cult favorite among locals.
So there you have it! Head on out to FOCO, rent a car, and enjoy the journey! You'll absolutely love your time there and all of the wonderful people you'll meet!
