Fall-in Love….

I am not sure about you guys, but I am ready to say goodbye  to 90 degree weather and hello to crisp air, layered clothing, pumpkin everything and football!! Our summer has been so wonderful! However, I can’t help but long for the holiday season!!

So, let’s look forward to some of my favorite wearable Fall Trends…..

Pumpkin Spice

Ahhhhhhh Pumpkin Spice! Just give me pumpkin everything!!! Don’t you adore this color? The fact that it’s an actual fall trend and not just the yummiest hot beverage you can order at Starbucks, gets my juices flowing!!

This muted color was seen all over the runways. It’s a very flattering color and goes well with most skin tones!

Bohemian Chic

Boho-Chic is the way to go this fall! I love an “all you can eat” dress! What a multi-purpose garment! These dresses leave you feeling chic, comfy and allow you to eat as much chocolate has your little heart desires! Asos.com has some of the best maxi dresses at really affordable prices. The white beauty is gorgeous and she is a steal at $78!

Style Tip…..Add a chunky sweater or a faux leather jacket and your fave fall boots!

Not just Denim….Reconstructed Denim

Dust off those distressed jeans of the 90’s because they are making a comeback! It’s no surprise that denim was seen all over the runways for fall. Everyone loves denim!

Plaid and Suiting

I’m kind of in love with this trend! We finally have permission from the fashion gods to pile on the plaid. I love pairing a simple plaid with a bold plaid. Yassssssss!

CAPES!! Give me all of the CAPES!!!!!!

This is my favorite trend! You can wear a cape with just about any outfit and it increases the glamour factor dramatically.

Okay, are you ready to shop? I know I am!

A word of caution….Don’t feel overwhelmed! Anyone can sport these fashion trends! You don’t have to have a large clothing budget to look like you have a large clothing budget! 🙂 My favorite places to shop are thrift stores and discount stores such as Marshalls and TJ Maxx.

Did you know you can shop TJ Maxx online? Just found these beauties for $49! I have the perfect spot in my closet for them! 🙂

I hope you are feeling inspired and ready for fall!!

Oh The Places We Will Go….In ATL

Hi fellow Properly Stylish people! These summer days are flying by and I can barely keep up! We have been busy with having as much fun as possible before the school year begins. I am always on the lookout for fun family outings! My favorite spots are those that offer both a fun experience and a learning experience.

I think we have found that perfect combo in the Children’s Museum of Atlanta.

I will be honest the drive to the museum was less than Properly Stylish. Liam is teething and boy has he had a tough time! The last place he wanted to be was in a car seat for a 45 minute drive!

Poor little lamb! Moving from car seat to stroller did not help matters! And so the adventure to the Children’s Museum begins! Don’t worry, he stopped crying as soon as we walked through those doors!

Seriously! Look at this place!! How in the world could you be sad with all of the fun adventures you can have here?

Look at these faces…..Pure joy! It was Stella and Liam’s first fishing experience and they loved every second! They splashed around and yes, they got wet!! It was wonderful to let them enjoy getting messy as they explored!

Liam absolutely loves water! He would have gone for a swim if I would have allowed him. 🙂

The next spot we visited was the mini grocery store! Not only is it adorable, but it teaches the benefits of having fresh and healthy food from Farm to Table!

As you can see, Liam loves his fresh veggies. Stella, on the other hand is a little more selective with her food choices.

She may have a particular palate but the girl can milk a cow like a boss! I loved this area so much! She actually learned how to milk a cow!!

I try to explain where our food comes from to my kiddos. Today, it finally clicked! Milking this cow brought up a bunch of new topics to talk about. “Mom, why do we drink cows milk when you make Momma’s Milk? Wait, is the chicken sandwich from Chick Fil A a real chicken? (insert her sad face)” Good questions sweet girl! We will save those questions for another blog post. 🙂

Liam loved this life size tractor so much! He was definitely in his happy place! Can you tell he has totally skipped his morning nap at this point?

I really believe Stella could have stayed and painted for days! She loved this painting station!

This may have been one of my favorite moments of the day! Stella was using “The Force” to open the elevators. Haha!!

There were so many fun activities and learning centers! There were crafting rooms and party rooms. The science center was mind blowing! We even were able to enjoy our snacks upstairs and chat about all of our favorite learning centers. My mommy-heart was bursting!

I have to mention the nursing mothers room! You guys, it was so wonderful to have a place to nurse Liam and allow him to have a few quiet moments! All of the excitement can be very stimulating.

We love the Children’s Museum of Atlanta and we had such a wonderful time learning while playing! Planning our next visit is already under way.

Hands on learning is definitely Properly Stylish!
