a little fun + fall beauty

I scored a quiet moment this morning, so here is a dash of fall beauty and something fun to inspire your day.

THIS outdoor space makes my knees buckle.  Full tour here.  Yes to everything – especially the fireplace.  I could sit by a crackling fire for hours.  I have vivid childhood memories of doing just that in my grandmother’s tiny white cottage when I was a child.

This off the shoulder top looks so comfy for fall.  The description references it as “80’s style” so maybe I was subconsciously drawn to it??   Comes in many colors.  Thinking about grabbing one in grey…


And for a little fun, I took this quiz which tells you your perfect Southern Belle name.  The questions were surprisingly specific!  My name was Cordelia.  I’d love to know your answer!

  “You live for manners, and you are polite to a fault (do you sometimes apologize to waiters for not wanting dessert?). You hate confrontation and unease. You like everyone to get along and to behave well, and you don’t hang around with troublemakers. Your belle name would be Cordelia!”

.        .        .

Yep.  That’s about right.  Although I mostly apologize for ordering dessert.

    Funny, I came up with Cordelia too which just takes me back to Anne of Green Gables…
    The sweatshirt is a little reminiscent of Flashdance maybe, hence the 80s vibe?
