My beautiful grandchildren and I have some pretty fall fashions to share with you this month. And as a special surprise, their mother Ashley joined us in this month's "Grandma & Me" post.
Alethea has been such a good big sister. She puts his pacifier back in his mouth if it falls out and he starts to cry; it's so cute. About the only issues we've had is that she wants to play with all of Atticus' toys, especially if they are new. She doesn't understand she is too big to sit in Atticus' bouncer. 🤣 She also has had to adjust to sharing her "Mamy". It's been hard for me when I visit to find time to smother Alethea with attention, yet, also spend quality time with Atticus as well. I don't know how all you grandmothers with dozens of grandchildren do it. I'm already feeling overwhelmed. But if I have to feel overwhelmed by something, this is probably the best thing to be overwhelmed about!😃
As I stated earlier, these pictures were taken at the end of August when the weather was still warm (and still is for many of my warm weather state friends). What I like to do when the weather is warm yet I want to dress for fall, is to wear fall colors in light weight fabrics. I also don't transition my sandals to boots until after it's officially fall (which is September 23rd for all the fashion bloggers who think fall comes right after the 4th of July 🤣).
My sandals are by Tommy Hilfiger and Alethea wore these cute white shoes.
The top I am wearing is new this fall. I picked it up at TJMaxx. I just love the color and the zipper neckline. This color is EVERYWHERE this year. If you can only buy one new fall item this season, buy something, anything in this color! Or, buy a pair of snakeskin booties...those are totally trending too! I paired my new top with a pair of green linen wide leg pants by St. John's Bay.
I couldn't find this top on-line at TJMaxx, but check out your local store, it might be available. Otherwise, I love THIS ONE on Amazon. THIS rust colored tee is pretty cute too!
Mom wore a very old maxi dress that cost only $1.99 from Rue 21. And, would you believe I wore this very same maxi dress on my very first fashion post in 2013? Yes, check it out HERE! Yikes! I can't believe I've been fashion blogging for five years now! I also can't believe how much older I look! That's what menopause does!
This was such a beautiful day! A gentleman saw us taking pictures of each other and asked if he could take a picture of all of us together. I always appreciate that when someone asks, because we have so few pictures of the entire family together.
I absolutely loved this little nature park. There was a marsh, a lovely wildflower garden, and a cute play area for the kids. We loved watching the bees and butterflies fly around all the flowers in the garden.
Alethea loves to explore in nature. I thought the expression on her face when she touched the blooms of this grass was priceless!
And of course Alethea's love for exploration causes her to wander off and we are forever chasing after her!
Have A Great Day! Amy
