DIY Farmhouse Style Bed Frame

Our bed broke. What’s the first thing that pops in your head? Well, it’s not what you might be thinking. Our 13 year old son likes to run as fast as he can and jump on the bed really hard. We had a metal bed frame and one of the center pieces that support the middle broke right off. We used this as a good excuse to look for our first bedroom set. We never had a complete set before and thought it was time.

Black and Brownish

I used to stay away from wearing black with any tint of brown. I was afraid of what others would think if it didn’t go perfectly together. I’ve said this plenty of times, but fashion is about you, not about what everyone else thinks. Fashion is meant to be fun and to take risks. Plus, it’s fall time and black and brown are prime colors for the season.

 

This outfit that I’m wearing is super cute! I have on skinny black pants with a brownish V-neck crisscross backless, loose knitted sweater. I’m also wearing some 3-inch heels with some fringe.

Alternatives to Celebrating Halloween

When you think of Halloween, you think of taking your kids trick or treating, making cookies, and going to a haunted house. When I was little, Halloween was my second favorite holiday next to Christmas. I loved to dress up and to  decorate for Halloween. It’s a fun holiday that is harmless, right?

 

I am a Christian and have been for most of my life. I never once thought that Halloween was bad. As I have grown deeper into my faith, the actual holiday has opened up my eyes to so much more. Halloween is meant to be harmless, but the roots of the holiday is not something I want to be a part of, or I want my family to be a part of.

Orange is Perfect For The Fall

I have another outfit this week that is orange, but this time bright orange! I love how I can wear this outfit now when it’s still warm. I can easily transition into warmer wear if the weather ever decides to cool down.

 

Being that it is still 85 degrees, a skirt like this is perfect to get in some fall pictures and not die of a heat stroke. If you live in Texas, or if you have ever visited, then you know exactly what I’m talking about.

Transition to the Fall Season

I love the fall season! The weather starts to cool down and then you can start to dress warmer. If you live in Texas you won’t see cooler weather till the very end of October or the beginning of November. I have a cute bohemian looking dress that is perfect for warmer weather, but it is also a great outfit that you can transition into the fall season with.

 

I absolutely love the bohemian look! My favorite part of this dress is the bottom of it. It’s very uniquely designed. I got this dress at Target. My purse is from Goodwill. My wedges are from Dillards.

Fall Porch Decor

Last fall we were just settling in our new home. Fall came and we were still living out of boxes. I definitely didn’t have time to decorate for fall. Now that it has been a year we are completely settled in and I finally have my porch decorated for the fall season. I have accumulated stuff throughout the years and I also buy a couple new things every year.

 

My three favorite stores that I get my fall decor from are Hobby Lobby, TJMaxx, and Target. The best time to get the fall décor is when it’s on sale. You can find all fall décor at Hobby Lobby for 40% off. The percentage off goes up the closer it gets for the season to be over. That is when it’s the best time to do your shopping for decor.
