A Trip to Hunt Club Farm during Fall

Living in Virginia for the past few years, Hunt Club Farm is quite the staple. The moment fall arrives, or even a little before, families flock there to buy pumpkins, let their kids enjoy the rides or attend the haunted festival. It’s definitely a destination for families looking to get into the fall spirit and a big part of the Virginia Beach community. Johnny and I love to get out and explore what’s around us, so this was definitely on our list of places to visit! We definitely had fun and even ran into a few Color & Chic readers!

Pink Crochet Cropped Top & Hydrangeas for Summer

Happy Monday, y’all! I can’t believe July is already here. I love finding fun tops for summer and this pink crochet cropped top is no exception. As a petite gal, I love the cropped silhouette because it fits me perfectly. The boho style crochet is fun and romantic, which is perfect for summer. The crochet is very well made and I can definitely see the quality in how the crochet was done. Some of the patterns in the crochet are so feminine, I can’t help but swoon. This crochet cropped top has a bit of a flare to it, which is super flattering. Plus, I just think about how I can wear it to lunches and dinners and eat all I want, ha! While this top has straps, I highly recommend wearing a strapless bra since the crochet is see-through in the straps. However, this top is lined through the chest so that’s a plus.

Heart on My Sleeve :: Heart Patch Sweater & Warm Boots

Those who know me personally can tell you I love to wear my heart on my sleeve most of the time. That’s why this heart patch sweater is perfect for me! The fabric of this sweater is unbelievably soft. It’s very stretchy and has that perfect slouchy look. You may remember I prefer sweaters with higher necklines because they can really keep the wind at bay. While this is heart patch sweater is certainly festive for Valentine’s Day, it’s perfect for the rest of winter and then for next Holiday season! It’s a great layering piece since you can wear a base layer underneath for extra warmth and then throw a cute vest over top.

Hearts of Pom :: Knit Your Love Cardigan

Happy Monday Y’all! I’m going to be honest, I did not watch the Super Bowl, but I do love the Eagles win because they’re underdogs! A good underdog story is always appealing to me. Perhaps it’s because almost every time I competed I was the underdog.

I’m sad Punxsutawney Phil predicts another six weeks of winter! I don’t mind winter, but I would like for temperatures to be warmer than the 30s! Plus, I’ll be getting plenty of that in PyeongChang and Gangneung when Johnny and I are there for the 2018 Winter Olympics! That’s where this wine knit your love cardigan comes in handy. The pom poms are in a heart shape, so this is perfect leading up to Valentine’s Day. Plus, it’s 100 percent acrylic, which is a nice cozy and warm fabric. This is a great layering piece, whether it’s over a tank, like I am here, or with a thinner sweater. Keep in mind, this piece is hand knit, so there are some gaps where wind can cut through. This isn’t the warmest cardigan, but it’ll do for mild winter temps.

Touch of Glam :: Faux Fur Sweater & Trench Skirt

Happy Friday! I seriously cannot wait to go home and see my family! I absolutely love what I do and love my work family. However, that doesn’t make up for being so far away from mine. I’m usually always away from family, which is why I love to decorate my apartment with tons of festive items. That way I have the Christmas spirit to keep me happy until I can get home. I’ll be working through the weekend and Christmas day, but I’ll be flying home right after! Plus, Dallas is so magical during the holidays so I can’t wait to see it for myself…
