Weekly Update #4 | 2017

Well hi there! Another week and that means another weekly update post! I absolutely love writing these things (so much so that I'm starting this on Monday). Quick question though, how do y'all feel about my new blog design. I mean the overall layout isn't too different, other than the fact that I removed the pictures below my header, but do y'all like the navy and blush theme? I absolutely loved my pink and orange theme because it really was me, but I also thought it gave a bit more of an immature look to My Life as Alyson. I also love other bloggers navy themed blogs and I knew I wanted to try and create my own.

This was quiet the eventful week so lets get to chattin'!

Dream Destinations

My family and I have traveled to the same two beaches my whole life. Every spring and fall break we're packed up in our SUV either heading to Hilton Head or straight down I-75 to Florida. I love those trips, and we have amazing memories at those beaches. My brother and I have grown up going there, and I at least would love to bring my children to the beaches we always visited.

I do love those vacations, but I really love the idea of exploring new places. My family and I plan on going to Chicago one summer, and a couple summers ago we visited D.C. I'd love to go to so many other places though, and I've compiled a small list of places I want to go below!

My Essentials for Fall

Fall honestly has to be my absolute favorite season. The weather is crisp enough to throw on sweaters, jackets, and vests without freezing your toes off. The holidays that come with this season are right up my alley (minus Halloween, even though I'm excited for it this year for some reason). Also, the sports are an actual dream for me. Football and baseball overlapping for a month, um yes please! 

My admiration for fall mostly comes in my wardrobe. A vest, long sleeve top, jeans, and riding boots literally speaks to my soul. It could not be more me, I'm not kidding! I've recently switched my closet over to all my fall clothes, and for a whole week weather in Kentucky has been in the 80's and 90's and I couldn't wear anything in my closet, but this week we're in the 70's! There is no doubt that I was walking into school in my riding boots and sweaters (even if I looked like I dressed too warm for the temperature outside, it's the thought of the season that counts). 

Anyways, below are all the pieces in my wardrobe that I deem as essentials for fall.
