It’s the start of my favorite time of year! Not only am I anxiously awaiting cooler temperatures and all things fall to arrive in Austin, but Braden and I have been planning our 1 year anniversary trip to Vermont next month and let’s just say I’ve completely removed summer from the brain and am solely focused on fall. Eek! I’m sure I’m not the only one, either! ?
Since we unfortunately don’t get the “full fall experience” in Texas, I have very high hopes and expectations for Vermont! Bring on the fall foliage, pumpkin patches, chai lattes and maple syrup.
…I‘m seriously getting so excited just typing this!
I’ve started putting my outfits together for the trip and since the temperatures won’t be too chilly while we’re there, I plan to swap out my boots for mules during the day to ensure I’m comfortable for our activities. Not only are mules extremely comfortable to wear (and you never have to worry about friction blisters), but they go with almost everything. When mules first launched last fall, I remember being a little uncertain on whether or not I could pull them off. I hesitantly snagged a tasseled cognac pair at the beginning of the season and instantly fell in love with them and probably wore them a few too many times!
If you remember my previous post here, I introduced you guys to one of my go to online shoe retailers — Restricted Shoes. They have the hottest shoe trends each season at a super affordable price point. When they recently released their newest fall collection, I was on the hunt for another neutral loafer mule that could easily transition into my fall wardrobe. The Bombay Mule was just that and I decided to opt for the gold color because I don’t have anything quite like it in my closet. It pairs effortlessly with any color palette and adds a touch of glam with the subtle sheen. I’m thinking about adding the black pair to the mix as well!
Stay tuned as I share a bit more on our upcoming trip and what else I’m planning on packing! Have any of you been to Vermont? If so, please feel free to leave some of your favorite restaurants and/or activities in the comments below.
