autumnal





















cardigan  j. crew
dress  madewell
bag  vintage from omnia wears
boots  anthropologie

One of my favorite things to do is drive out of the city with no destination in particular. On this day I found myself in Half Moon Bay with my best day-trip buddies Lauren and Peter, wandering around pumpkin patches and thrift stores. I found half of my Halloween costume at a Goodwill (I'm keeping it a secret for now!) and we drank strawberry margaritas at a really bad Mexican restaurant. Despite the aimlessness of our day we had a lovely time just driving around with the stereo blasting and hopping out whenever something caught our eye. It reminded me of being in high school and feeling like I had all the time in the world to do whatever I wanted, at least for an entire day, and relishing the freedom of getting in a car and just going.

Sounds like such a cool day!! I love the photo of you guys in the green house. Funny:)

Plus that outfit is just rad for going to a pumpkin patch and shopping for a Halloween costume.

sounds like a great day, I haven't had one of those I think since probably right after high school. wow, I guess I'd kind of forgotten how fun that is, thanks for your reminder, hopefully I can soon : )
& you both look lovely in your fall attire, cute fall colors & love your friend's oversized sweater.
