Fall Friendship

RayBan Cat Eye sunnies, AE jacket similar here, Shirt similar at Chico's
As an educator for the past 10+ years, fall always signified new beginnings, new friendships and new clothes! I don't exactly have new clothes but thanks to last night's stormy weather  I was able to whip out one of my favorite jackets for my morning walk with the boys.  Truthfully it was more for mosquito protection than a fashion statement but every moment is an opportunity to make a fashion statement right?  Of course a striped tee is essential for a sea lover like myself.  Lastly, I don't think I will ever be able to stop wearing friendship bracelets.  They remind me of my schoolyard days and the excitement of making my own design.  Did you ever tape the string to your desk and knot away hoping your teacher would not catch you?  I did!  As you guys know I do get on my DIY kicks here and there, including last summer .
Yesterday, I had the intentions of baking my first pumpkin pie but I got overwhelmed. Today's cool start to the day is the motivation I needed to get baking. 
I'm off to the kitchen, where are you off to? (and yes I ended a sentence with a preposition BAD TEACHER!)

Lol! love the bracelet and I remember making friendship bracelets in Jr high!
I went for support and company while my 28 yr old signed up for spring classes at local college, and we got Jack'd on pumpkin lattes and shopped st kohls. now we are headed to the fixer she is moving into..to do some painting. and later we are running to do an airport pickup. have a nice weekend

I'm ok with you ending a sentence with a preposition, if you forgive me when I do! :) I know my grammar, but I don't always use it on my blog.

You are beautiful, I love your pictures, and I LOVE friendship bracelets. Awww, good school day memories for me too.

I'm off to watch some news and drink some coffee, and relax.

i love your fall look! fall clothing is fun. it is hot here one day, and then a little chilly the next. it is weird. but maybe fall will settle in soon so i can start wearing boots and sweaters already.

have a fab weekend!

Love the bracelet. I have never made one but I would love to make some and give them away. If only there were more hours in the day! x
