Happy September! I'm so excited for a new month. September always feels like a fresh start. Even though it's currently 91º outside, and it was one of the hottest weekends ever, we're still feeling the autumn vibes around here. I had such a great end-of-summer weekend though filled with dinners and drinks with friends, amusement park adventures, lots of margaritas, and music on the beach. I couldn't have asked for a better long weekend! But now... onto FALL, y'all! Okay, I'm from Michigan. I can't say that. ;)
I just picked out this adorable top and cut-out heels from ModCloth for autumn, and I couldn't wait to wear them! I love burnt orange and olive green for autumn. Always. This top is such a lightweight fabric, so it's perfect for the transition in seasons. Plus, it has such a flattering silhouette. It does kind of show off every wrinkle underneath though. I had to wear my "smoothest" bra, and you could still notice it (a cami was way worse) but I love the soft fabric and can't wait to wear it under thicker sweaters later this autumn too!
Do you guys have any big plans for September? We actually have a lot coming up! I was hoping life would slow down slightly, but it looks like I need to hang on for the ride a little while longer. Eric and I are heading to a wine festival this weekend (he's playing in a band), plus we have baby showers, birthday celebrations, and a wedding in Traverse City to attend. We're also going on a little "staycation" at the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel at the end of September. I'm so thrilled! I know that I live here, but if you have any amazing recommendations of places we should try in Grand Rapids (especially in the downtown area), let me know! I'd love to hear!
