Fall weekends are some of my favorites. Our leaves may not be putting on the color show they do in New England, but pumpkin farms and farmers markets do a pretty good job of it here in California. We did some exploring in the country last weekend which I’m sharing today, along with my goofy thought processes.
Victoria Emerson sent me a few wraps from her newest collection and they were the perfect way to add a feminine touch to my boyfriend jeans. I’m not a girly girl by any means, but I like soft pinks and sparkly things that help boyfriend jeans work for me. You can’t see it, but I used this pin to put my hair up.
Their handmade rose salve smelled amazing and should have come home with me. Sadly, when the gal mentioned that they were out of the lavender salve I decided I had to have that one so I didn’t buy any, much to the delight of Mr. AWSL. In hindsight, which is always 20/20, I really want the rose one so I
have to will go back.
I love these velvet pumpkins, but they’re so expensive! The crafter in me is thinking, “I could easily make these and dot them all over the mantle”. Before I get carried away, I remember that I aspire to be in permanent declutter mode, and these would just be one more thing to store after the season is over.
I spotted these clever pumpkins and my wheels started turning.”I can make this at home. It’s just a carved out pumpkin, filled with dirt and planted with succulents”. The truth is, I have a black thumb, and the only way this would work would be if I used silk plants.
There are some funny things in the country that just demand a photo:)
Next up was the farmers market which was loaded with color and pumpkins.
I skipped the pumpkins this time and zeroed in on organic olives, smoked salmon, corn on the cob and homemade salsa. We both left carrying huge plastic bags.
Victoria Emerson’s bracelets and watch were the perfect touch of prettiness I needed for this outfit. She loves to inspire women to celebrate the joy in every day, and share their sparkle with the world.
Her newest collections are filed with fresh colors and pretty crystals. I’m obviously loving the rose gold which seems to go with everything this fall. Victoria Emerson is having a Boo (Ya) , it’s a flash sale right now.
Are you a fan of Sunday drives in the country?
