Yesterday was the first OFFICIAL day of fall, and it actually felt like fall too! The temperatures dropped, the sun was shining, and even though I am a warm weather girl the crisp temperatures got me excited for this new season.
Brian and I started our weekend on Saturday by attending the Lockerbie Square Neighborhood Yard Sale. Lockerbie is a beautiful residential neighborhood located just outside of the city center in Indianapolis, and just a couple of blocks from where Brian and I live right now. The homes in this neighborhood are absolutely gorgeous, so when Brian and I found out that they were having a yard sale we had a feeling we may be able to find some pretty cool items.
I was able to find a handmade lantern for $2! I am still not 100% sure what I will do with it…but I love it!
Brian found a cute French bulldog bank (kind of like a piggy bank) that we will display on a shelf in our room.
We only had a limited amount of time to look around, but we were still able to see a good amount of what people had to offer.
This was probably the “fanciest” garage sale I had ever been to. Some houses were serving up mimosas, donuts, coffee…and look at the “Please Pay Here” sign in the picture below! So fun 🙂
Later that afternoon I went to the grand opening of an Indianapolis boutique store, Dottie Couture.
I first learned of Dottie Couture at the Fall FashIN event that I attended last month. They were one of the stores that had items displayed for us to purchase, try on, and play with and I loved everything about it! When I heard they were opening up another boutique I had to pay it a visit on their grand opening day.
I ended up purchasing:
Fleece leggings (so cozy!)
Chevron Dress (similar to this, mine is olive and black)
The cool thing about Dottie Couture is that even though it is a local Indiana boutique, it is also an online store so anyone can purchase these adorable and affordable clothes and accessories. I love it, and I am so glad that I have been introduced to this company.
After shopping, Brian and I headed out on an apple picking date. SO FUN! (More details coming soon…)
To top off the fall weekend, Brian and I also enjoyed our first bowl of chili this fall…delicious!
Sunday morning, I started my day with a 6 mile run at a 7:58 pace…finally! I thought for sure I would NEVER reach my goal of having a run of a distance over 2 miles hit that 8 min/mile mark. Not only did I reach my time goal, but I felt good doing it!
I hope you all had a great first weekend of fall as well!
