Fall Outfits in Warm Weather

Hi friends! Is it just me or does it seem like fall has been taking awhile to get here this year? Usually I am excited for fall weeks before most people are and come the first day of fall, I am already wearing oversized cardigans and buying fall-scented candles. But for some reason this year, I have no been able to let go of summer! It just does not at all seem like fall yet to me, and that is probably because of the unusually warm weather in Indiana. Because I still want to wear all of fall clothes, its becoming a little bit of a challenge to figure out how to wear them in the Indy heat 🙂 Mixing rich, jewel tones, such as burgundy and deep green make it much easier to embrace the fall spirit without wearing bulky cardigans. Incorporating details like dainty jewelry keeps layered looks sleek.

As you can see, I was ecstatic about getting Starbucks.

Wishing you a perfectly chilly fall and looking forward to blogging more often this fall

5 Favorite Christmas Events in Indy

Hi friends. Not to brag or anything, but us Hoosiers are pretty festive, and I’m not complaining. Who can deny that the Christmas season is the best of all-from snow days to Christmas décor. Luckily, Indy has lots of events and activities to fulfill your need for Christmas fun! These are some activities around Indy that my family loves to visit every year.

1.Reynolds Lights

This is one of my favorite Christmas activities and this year we are actually going to bring my puppy so I am super excited for that. Reynolds sells farming equipment and every year they set up this GIGANTIC lights display. It’s totally free( but they accept donations of canned food for local shelters so be sure to bring a few!) and you just drive through the light show in your car. My whole family bundles up with blankets and hot cocoa to look at the beautiful lights.

2.Monument Circle Tree Lighting

In the heart of downtown Indy during the holiday season is a 242 feet Christmas tree that lights up the whole city at night. The night that the tree is lit is filled with excitement, fireworks, and anticipation for the rest of the season. It is really fun to go and walk around the city at night even after the tree lighting to relive the excitement.

3.Christmas at the Zoo

The Indianapolis Zoo boasts lots of summer animals during the warm weather such as flamingos, lions, and a read panda. But when the winter season comes, visitors are limited to the indoor animals like the dolphins and penguins. One of the biggest events of the year at the Zoo is Christmas at the Zoo, visitors can get holiday treats, meet Santa, and participate in a variety of arts and crafts. This is a great activity to do with your younger family members who might be in town for the holidays. 🙂

4. Festival of Trees at the Indianapolis Historical Society

This is SUCH a fun event to visit. First of all, the Historical Society is gorgeous and has amazing exhibits year round, so be sure to check it out if you are visiting our beautiful city. I love visiting this unique festival because it is supported by Indy businesses which I love. The trees are placed throughout the entire building so you get to walk around and look at other parts of the museum.

5. Jingle Rails

This is a particular favorite of my younger cousins and it’s a very unique event. The Eiteljorg museum puts on an event where they set up different kinds of trains. It is a little hard to explain but it’s another unique event at one of Indy’s best museums.

I look forward to writing more Christmas blog posts as the holiday draws closer. Happy Holidays!
