So it felt light fall in Saratoga for a hot second.  Windows were open, AC off and I had pretty much pulled out all my wool hats and fall wear and swapped out most of my summer clothes.  So the moment I plan on wearing a sweater, it turns to be an 80 degree day!  At least it was worth the bonfires, college football and NFL games this past weekend.  This sweater was super inexpensive (I grabbed it on sale in gray too) and I notice I didn't have "light" items for layering, other than turtlenecks.  This will be perfect for layering with vests and ponchos.  I know fall weather will be here before we know it which only brings on the lower temps, so I will try not to push it too hard and embrace the fluctuating temps for now.  So instead, I'll just enjoy iced salted carmel and pumpkin spice lattes!

all the fall things


So I've been legit super M.I.A.  Not on purpose, but for two reasons.  Work (obviously/boring - more on that another time), but mainly because any shopping I've done, has absolutely NOT worked out.  I guess it was a little eas(ier) on the wallet.  Pretty much everything has been returned besides a pair or two of shoes and a few bags.  Not one article of clothing has worked out at all.  Even all the bajillion dresses I ordered for track season just. did. not. work.  Not to mention it was a super hot summer and the thought of wearing anything super cute or form fitting/with color for the track was just 100% unappealing.  I was all about the comfort and airy approach that I pretty much wore the same two dresses each weekend (I even didn't wear any facinators to the track)!  I hope that with some of the cooler days/evenings it will be helpful to bring back and incorporate some of the items I've hidden away all spring/summer season and give a fresh new look, but I'm not going to push it too hard

1.  Go apple picking
2.  Hike one of the 46 high peaks in the Adirondacks - I didn't make it this summer, so I'll try again with the fall foliage.
3.  Have a bonfire with red wine of course.
4.  Enjoy a glass of red up at the Sagamore or Inn of Erlowest
5.  Boat cruise with wine and cheese for the foliage
6.  Throw an Oktoberfest
7.  Have a football party with friends at a location outside of Saratoga
8.  Figure out John's third year wedding anniversary gift - it's leather - any ideas would be great as I'm completely drawing a blank!
9.  See Bridget Jones's Baby with some girlfriends
10.  Attend the ADK Balloon Festival

Any other suggestions would be great and I hope to be more regular with my posts again!!
