Happy Monday, friends! This weekend flew by but it was so nice to spend some time with family. We’ve been loving our time in San Diego because we’ve been close to Matthew’s mom, siblings, and their families. Plus being close to the ocean is so good for the soul. Now that Augustine’s chin is almost all healed, we felt a little better about going to play in the sand. If you didn’t know, Augustine cut his chin open on his scooter so we’ve been avoiding water and salt the last two weeks. It’s been so tough for our little guy but he’s had such a positive outlook!
To mix it up today, I thought it would be fun to share 1 Sad Thing, 2 Funny Things, and 3 Sweet Things. I thought that might be a different way of catching up with you all, plus I have details on this gorgeous floral fall midi dress, along with lots of other cute florals for the season.

October Edit: Casual California Fall
Right now, I am staying in San Diego with my family for a bit before our move, so wearing easy, casual, and comfortable things are an absolute must. This month my style is totally inspired by our casual California fall.
When you think of a comfy style, you think sweaters. This cute grey crop sweater is so soft and cozy. For a casual look, I’d pair it up with jeans like these high waisted jeans that will complete the look and work with the cropped length of the sweater. Sweaters and jeans go great together! I also really adore this midi dress. It looks super soft and comfortable. You can really elevate this look with cute gold jewelry and accessories, like these hoop earrings or this chain necklace that are really trendy right now.
Fall is the perfect cozy time to watch old movies. The vibes just feel right. I’m very tempted to grab this Audrey Hepburn Fashion in Film book for some style inspo. You know I love her style! Audrey is such a fashion icon and I adore the legacy she made for us all. At the end of the day, I’d love to light up a candle, like this classic candle, and watch any Audrey movie. Doesn’t that sound like the perfect Friday night?
On the days I go out, I like to put on more natural-looking makeup when I am wearing a casual and comfortable look. I love the color and shimmer of this limited edition bronze and glow set. It looks so natural and beautiful on the skin. When you have less sunny days, a little bronzer can’t hurt.
A good crossbody bag is coming in handy since my hands are pretty full with the little ones right now. One minute Corinna wants me to hold her and then next she’s practicing her sprints! I love that this crossbody bag looks expensive, but is actually pretty affordable!
Bodysuits are extremely practical and ideal for almost any look you want. It is so annoying when you are wearing a shirt and constantly have to tuck it in! With bodysuits, you can effortlessly achieve that “tucked in” look without worrying about it falling out. They are also perfect all year round, but I am loving them the most for fall. I’ve been getting into so many new trends – like this new fall trend I’m embracing for the first time – and I am not disappointed at all! I found so many amazing bodysuit options that are so stylish and comfortable. Keep reading to see my finds and my tips on what to pair bodysuits with!
