Bonfire


 Outfit Details: Floral Crown: Little Honey Pies // Sweater & Boots: Thrifted // Brooch: Antique Mall // Skirt with Bow: DIYed 







Autumn and bonfires go together like PB&J and we most certainly kicked off the season the other weekend with a night of toasting marshmallows for smores for the sweet-toothers, hotdogs for the meat-eaters and banana boats for the fruit lovers over the crackling fire.  What is it about the smell of burning wood that just tickles your nose in the most delightful of ways?  I'd say it's surely up there with my favorite scents.  Nothing evokes the warm fuzzies better and this night of telling stories, sitting around this smoldering pit with friends was just what this gal needed to get through the very busy weeks to come.  

I love bonfires.  Period.  Oh yeah, and this is what I wore to attend one.  As a week has past - the leaves aren't so green any more.  Fall just gets better and better.

So here's to one happy Fall and sweet October darlings.  

Love Bunches,

  3. My oh my you're lovely! I love the floral headpiece you're sporting here, what a perfect look for a bonfire. Sounds like it was a perfect time to pull out the rugged boots! Also, I just saw your previous post on how to make pumpkin chili..seriously that looks delicious! I'm gonna have to try that out at some point this fall. :)

  12. Oooh I haven't gone bonfire-ing in a very long time!!! I remember how pretty everything (and everyone) looks in a bonfire, and the warmth-- the glorious warmth! The only thing I don't like about bonfires is how my hair smells like afterwards :(

  15. I 100% agree about bonfires - and whenever I am making my necklaces with wood burning it makes my room smell like one, which is just the very best ever (until someone thinks the apartment is burning down. Woops.)
    Now I'm craving a bon fire so bad!


    I love the little birdies on your skirt, such a cute pattern!

  23. I love you DIY skirt with bow! Did you actually make the whole skirt, or alter something, or attach the bow to something thrifted? Either way its amazing. Also LOVING this muted color floral crown! I may have to make one for myself, looking at your I realized I had similar color flowers sitting arround in an (ugly) vase in my garage! Also, we are mustard tight-twinnies! WIsh I could be there to bonfire with you IRL girl! Hope you're having a fabulous! day!

  28. gosh, I don't think I've seen a bonfire since camp. Tear! There is something about burning wood that makes everything cozy and warm.

  29. I could honestly smell the burning scent of bonfires and hear the crackling of wood just by you describing it. Ah! How gloriously bliss fall truly is. :)
    The location is so magical! I simply adore your outfit as usual and your color choices always blow my mind. I want to make my outfits more colorful like yours!!
