My Favorite Fall Transition Pieces

This past weekend’s mid-60’s temps have gotten me in the mood for everything related to fall – bonfires, spiked apple cider, Halloween, reading a good book in the sunshine without sweating my ass off, and pumpkin flavored/scented everything.

#ootd: Ultraviolet Gala

Last night was my last Ultraviolet Gala as a collegian. What? I’m not sure how that’s even possible so surely that statement cannot be true. When I put on my badge before heading out the door, it definitely had not sunk in yet. I’m not sure it has even now. Being a senior is weird.
