Kicking off my Asheville looks with my absolute favorite! Mainly, for the amazing leaves in the background, I mean that orange hue {EVERYTHING}. But, also because I am obsessed with pairing dresses with hunter boots {you can see here and with skirts here and here}. The combination of feminine + sweet with outdoorsy + casual is just so fun and unexpected! 

So here I am with the pairing again! This time with the cutest dress for fall that you absolutely need in your closet. It is one of those items you can easily dress up or dress down. In fact, I’ll be sharing a dressed up styling of the dress later this week or early part of next week. So stay tuned!

Also, if you’re in the market for a denim jacket {I finally replaced mine after three years, eeek!} this one is so great! The darker wash is perfect for both fall and winter + when you roll up the sleeves there’s preppy stripe fabric. Such a cute touch! Oh, and it’s just over $50 – can’t beat that price! 

If you switch out the hunter boots for simple ballet flats or booties, this look would be adorable for Friendsgiving or a casual Thanksgiving with your family. Can you believe Thanksgving is next week!?

    So envious of your Asheville foliage. We went during peak season but it was still so green!

      When we visited The Grove Park, they said the peak season was delayed about two weeks this year due to the higher temps. Hate y’all missed it but it looked like you were able to see the turning of some of them. You’ll just have to go back next year!!
