A Comfy & Cozy Game Day Outfit


I'm over on StyleBistro again today sharing a cozy and comfortable outfit to wear to a football game this fall for my second post with ECCO Shoes!  This outfit would also work for a viewing party or even to wear to a sports bar. I've been stomping around in these boots non-stop and love the double side zippers which make putting them on so easy. And can we talk about this ultra soft plaid scarf? It's a perfect fall staple and is handmade right here in Annapolis which I love! Read on for some more snaps and head over to Style Bistro to check out my styling tips!

5 Outfits Inspiring My Honeymoon Wardrobe

5 chic and simple outfits for fall
Image: Metro Mode
I've been trying to set aside neutrals I can mix and match for our 2 week honeymoon -- think skinny jeans, blazers, striped tees, knit sweaters, flat boots and sneakers. I need to pick out some fun accessories like a plaid scarf and maybe add a printed dress - but I've been trying to save images on Pinterest of outfits that I like. All of these are so simple yet look so pulled together and chic.

Roasted Butternut Squash & Ricotta Dip

Roasted Butternut Squash  Ricotta Dip

Football season has taken over our house (per the usual) and while I can't say I get too excited about watching alllll the time I do love a good excuse to come up with new game time snacks. Ricotta cheese has long been my go-to. I most frequently serve it straight up with a drizzle of olive oil and chopped fresh herbs (check out my Whipped Ricotta recipe here) but I decided to give this dip a little seasonal twist by incorporating roasted butternut squash. Austin gives me a hard time about butternut squash and thinks I cook it way too frequently in the fall but I'd have to disagree! Anyway - this dip is super easy, packed with Vitamin B6 and antixoidants and easy to prepare. It pairs perfectly with Food Should Taste Good Multigrain & Sweet Potato chips and it's going to be my standby for weekends to come.

A Little Leopard Dress For Brunch With Ecco



Today I'm excited to announce a partnership with StyleBistro & ECCO footwear. I had such a fun time styling two different pairs of shoes for fall. You can see my first article over on StyleBistro here where I'm sharing a comfortable outfit to wear to brunch this fall. I fell in love with these ultra soft ECCO Touch 75 Booties as soon as I put them on and can't wait to pack them for our honeymoon in Europe. They are perfect for long days of exploring but also look polished enough for dinner or drinks!
