September may be my favorite month but October is definitely a runner-up – There’s just something so crisp and clean and cozy about the changing of seasons that I love. Leaves falling, a reorganized closet, a new page in my planner, a warm scarf and lots of time spent outside with friends and family – that’s what I think of when I picture October. And now I can add – “co-hosting my favorite linkup” to that list! Welcome to the October 2016 edition of Currently, and a big shout out to my co-host Anne for putting this awesome prompt together!
Cheers-ing: To our friends getting married this month! We have one wedding this Sunday (Tim’s first time as a groomsman!) and another on the 22nd up in New York, where I’ll finally be wearing the blue dress I can’t stop talking about ; ) I can’t wait to see these happy couples say “I do”… and drink plenty of champagne to celebrate!
Organizing: Everything. Bills, budgets, clothes, makeup, products, jewelry. Some people are all about spring cleaning but I swear by a fresh start in Fall! Gotta make some room for a few new arrivals (my boots should be coming today!) and I’m still working on putting together my newly remodeled bathroom – including hanging my DIY ombre canvas painting – post coming soon!
Dreaming: Of traveling, almost always. I don’t think we’ll be able to take another tropical trip this winter but we’re contemplating the logistics of going to Peru in early 2017 (!!) Other than that, we might make it down south to visit Tim’s brother at UVA and we’ll certainly get in a few trips north to ski. I loooove weekends away : )
Buying: This should be totally blank but I am incapable of following too strict of a budget soooooo. A few fall-ish items including another top in olive green – Should we label it an obsession at this point? Plus a pair of workout leggings with mesh details that I’ve been coveting for months. #buyALLthethings #leggingsarepants
Listening: To Preston and Steve (morning radio show) during my morning commute, Trace Bundy Pandora station at work (acoustic is the best for concentration!) and lots of Misterwives, Rolling Stones, Adele, Coldplay and Ray LaMontagne during the rest of my days. Plus, some kick@ss workout playlists courtesy of my awesome trainers – I’ll steal those songs soon to share!
What are you currently up to? Share below, and don’t forget to visit Anne’s page too! If you’re ahead of the game and want to get ready for November, we’ll be sharing what we’re currently discovering, celebrating, starting, wearing, and googling.
Linkup reminders: Please practice good linkup etiquette and link only posts on this type of “currently” theme (we reserve the right to delete unrelated posts); also link back to me or Anne somewhere in your post, and be sure to visit and comment on some other people’s currently lists.
