Fall Fashion Must Haves!!

Fall is pretty much my favorite time of year.  It cools down, which is the best part of the changing season.  My fat doesn't like to sweat.  You also get to start wearing jeans and not sweating your ass off, as well as long sleeves and hooded sweatshirts.  As you can imagine that while my fat doesn't like to sweat I hate showing off too much of my untoned skin.  The more clothing the merrier.......trust me.

I thought I would share with you some fall staples that I have that I cannot wait to show off this season!

To start off, if you guys aren't following Betsy's Boutique you need to start right now.   Seriously, go right now and start following them on facebook and then you can come back and finish this post.  It's that important!

I am lucky enough to live close enough to visit this store in person.  It is conveniently located by our seed warehouse so it is almost imperative that I stop when I'm in the area right?  The last time I was in the area I stopped in and picked up these great items!

 This awesome coat with leather sleeves on sale!!.  This coat is a classic staple.  I am loving the leather detail this season and can't wait to rock this coat on a night out!

The top is also from Betsy's Boutique.  I love the pattern on the sleeves and back of the shirt with a simple plain front.  Another of my favorite fall staples is colored jeans!  These are great to tuck into boots.  These burgundy jeans I recently got at American Eagle.

Speaking of boots........even if we weren't there is always a reason to speak of them!
I got these boots a while back and they are pretty much the most badass boots around!  They really will go with any season but I will for sure be rocking these all fall!!  They are the Old Gringo Charquira Eagle Boot

What are some of your fall favorites for the season?

Fall Party Favorites - CFBP

Harvest, cool temps, amazing sunsets, everything pumpkin......that is what fall is to me!  We have had some amazing entries for our blog party this month and I can't wait to share with you my favorites! Our theme this month is fall (naturally) so you can imagine that some of the posts contained my favorite things that were mentioned above.

Without further ado......My Favorites!

I love this post because as harvest picks up finding easy meals to take to the field to not only my farmer but to customers that we are taking a plot off or side by side is so helpful!  I love quick, easy, and tasty!

Spicy Stuffed Acorn Squash- The Tip Garden

I love acorn squash and I love spicy, so you can imagine this was an easy pick for me!  I can't wait to give it a try this week.  I actually just picked up an acorn squash at the store yesterday so it was practically meant to be.

This post hits home for sure as i have been up in my deer stand for the past couple weeks since bow season has opened here.  We use the meat as a source of food and don't let anyone tell you different, deer is delicious!

Great post!!  I love how fall is explained in numbers and the long seasons.  My favorite quote from the post: "It takes optimism to begin, persistence to make it past the obstacles and through the inevitable mid season slump and grit to make the necessary adjustments and finish strong. "

I love anything DIY and especially made out of pallets. I seem to have a ton of pallets laying around all the time.  If I can put them to good use it is a win for me!!

So their you have it!  Those are my 5 favorites from our fall party thus far.  Be sure to stop by and check out any new posts and be sure to link up any of your favorites that remind you of fall!

New and Improved Blog Party!

Am i normally late to the party?  Yes.  However, you know the saying....be fashionably late to make an entrance.  I feel that applies perfectly here!  If you didn't notice yesterday many of my fellow party hosts shared the new and improved Country Fair Blog Party!  If you didn't notice then perfect, you are about to find out now!

Here's the lowdown:

New and Improved: We are now only partying once a month.  We used to host a new party once a week but as life gets busy we feel this is a much better fit!  I think you will agree.

How it Works: The beginning of every month we will start a new party (or in my case maybe the second day).  All ya'll will share your amazing recipes, or DIY ideas, or just some great informational posts.  The hosts will then pick their favorites and must sees say around the middle of the month.

Best Part...: We are now themed!  Everyone loves a theme right?  This month naturally we will be doing fall!  I love fall and everything about it.  Deer hunting season opens, everything pumpkin flavored hits the shelves, amazing colors of nature, the cooler temps, and of course Halloween!  Don't forget the month of October is also National Pork Month!  That in itself deserves a party because who doesn't love bacon?!

How to Party Along: Be sure to join in the fun and link up one of your posts that has anything or everything to do with this amazing season of Fall!  Just click on the link at the bottom of the page and it will have you put in the URL of your post then you can add a picture if you like.  Bodda Bing, Bodda Boom, you are in!

Hosts: Currently their are 4 of us hosting this, NicoleDanielleLaurie, and myself.  We do love a good party so the more the merrier right?  We would love to have some of you also co-host with us!  If you are interested in hosting a party with us just shoot one of us a message and we will get you all set up!

Enjoy and happy linking!!
