White Culottes in Fall

Well Hershey Park was a blast. I will admit that I closed my eyes on many of the roller coasters. Unfortunately for me, there was no "easing" into the rides - the very first one was a crazy, twisty one with flips and we sat up front. Seriously?!

And we ended the day on an equally crazy ride that zipped us around at 75 mph while we were only strapped in from the waist down, also sitting up front. At the end of the ride, we wiped each other's cheeks from smashed bug remnants and wished each other congratulations that we made it through in one piece. 

Hershey Park gets an A+ for scaring the heck out of me. 

And for scrambling our brains...

Even though I love shopping for new clothes in the fall, the practical side of me tries to figure out ways to incorporate pieces of my wardrobe into the cooler temperatures. These culottes are a perfect candidate for this. I combined them with a light sweater and blazer combo along with fall-friendly shoes.

I keep getting asked if it's ok to wear white during fall and my answer is this: yes. But if you do, make sure to keep your other pieces non-summery. Combine white pants with boots/pumps and fall jackets, saving sandals and short sleeve tops for summer. And in the winter, fade out stark white and substitute it in for off-white. 

It's chic and classic.

Casual Friday {Quilted}

Casual Fridays Sweater Quilted Skirt


I'm so excited it's the weekend. We and a few college friends are headed to Hershey Park bright and early tomorrow morning (well, at 10 so not that early). We haven't been to the amusement park in at least 5 years and when you live that close, 5 years is a long time. I like to think of myself as a bit of a daredevil who loves adventure but let me tell you, when it comes down to it, I freak out on roller coasters.

Not outwardly, of course.

As soon as I sit down and that ride takes off, I get deathly quiet, mentally kicking myself over the wisdom of handing my life over to a manmade metal contraption, with barely any sense of security, to be twisted and turned and flipped upside down while dangling thousands of feet in the air.

So in honor of this weekend's plan, I've posted a casual Friday outfit. Not exactly amusement park material but perfect for fall's changing temperatures. It's actually getting cold enough here to need layering (at least every other day).

How about you? Are you a lover of amusement parks and roller coasters? And which park is your favorite?
