What To Wear To A Fall Wedding

I hate switching out the clothes in my closet when the seasons change. It takes away precious time that I could spend doing something more fun with my husband or kids. I usually wait until the last minute, and then I’m scrambling to pull sweaters and jeans out of plastic bins and from other storage areas when the temps get cold and my closet is still full of summer dresses, skirts and tops.

I’m not a model with a fancy photographer; I’m a woman who is proud of the lines, bumps, bruises and everything else that has made me who I am. I believe in lifting people up through positivity and I hope that maybe a story on this blog, or an outfit or whatever else comes through here will do that for someone, some day. So there you have it! Please be patient as I try to figure out the blogosphere, my camera, bokeh and everything else. It’s not going to be perfect, but I hope that we will have fun together!
