Autumn Green11:03 AM
I think that these are my favorite outfit photos so far this year, and it is mostly because Kyle did a great job capturing autumn in Michigan in these photos. This outfit felt more "Spring" at first, but I think the mustard cardigan (that I have been wearing non-stop), and the scarf help make it look more "fall". So maybe green is a fall color! Am I setting a trend yet? Eh? *wink wink* *nudge nudge*
These photos were taken in my little suburb of Oak Park! Oak Park is always listed as one of the most boring cities in Michigan, probably because it is a dry city, there are no bars, but LOADS of liquor stores, and there is no downtown area. There are plenty of places to eat though, and of course lots of cute, little parks! This one is David Shepard Park, but I refer to it as "The Choo-Choo Train Park", and have ever since I was a little kid. My dad used to take us sledding here when were were young, because there is a giant hill. There is a little nature walk too, and two tennis courts, as well as being close to the library. Also, there is a giant wooden train! It is so cheesy, but it really is the coolest thing, we loved it when we were kids. Kyle and I took photos a few years ago on it.
Look at all of the beautiful leaves! Seriously, I always want to press them, or make something cool with them, but I never do. Any suggestions? I guess that is what Pinterest is for, but still. Kyle and I always want to take a trip in the fall to look at the foliage, but it is kind of hard to time it correctly. We of course love any chance to visit the UP, but they would have had their peak colors about 2-3 weeks go. However, Mackinaw is probably looking pretty nice right about now. I also found out that Stars Hollow from Gilmore Girls, is based off a real town! Washington Depot, CN. I told Kyle this, and now he thinks a road trip to Connecticut next year is in store. I agree a million percent.
As far as the rest of this month goes, I am hoping to fit in a hayride, a trip to the cider mill, doughnuts, my cousin Heather's wedding, a corn maze, a bonfire (that one seems to keep not working out, balls!), watch Rocky Horror Picture Show, and Hocus Pocus, and of course The Great Pumpkin, and last but not least: Halloween! We are probably just going to pass out candy, eat pizza, then head out to our favorite dive bar with our friends, but I am totally dressing up as something, and hopefully it turns out as awesome as I hope it does (it won't, but lets be optimistic here. Or whatever).
