Our Favorites for Fall

Favorite Things for Fall2

Hello! Over the summer we did a “Favorite Things” post so we thought we’d pop back in and catch up with the new season. Here are some fun fall fashion and gift ideas we are in love with, we thought you would enjoy them too. Feel free to add your favorites in the comments!

I currently have this shirt in my shopping cart. I love the navy with the white–perfect for transitional weather and you can’t beat the price.


I am hooked on these little notepads I ordered from ETSY. I seem to need to send a note in to school with my kids about something or other several times a week. These are just the right size for a quick line or two to the teacher and they are a step up from a sticky note or an index card. They make writing a shopping list a nicer experience too.

{If your curious underneath my notes is my Day Designer, that made our Summer Favorite Things post}.

This is my favorite Fall nail polish. It might be my favorite nail polish ever–but I love it for Fall, it is my go-to for pedicures. {It is more brown than mauve, strange picture}, the color is Chicago Champagne Toast.



My iPhone is limping along {literally} until I can upgrade next month, and as soon as I get a new phone I will need a new case, I am leaning toward this one.

Apple and caramel treats for school | 11 Magnolia Lane

Healthy School Party Snack or Take-Home Treat

I'm one of the room moms for my daughter's class this year.  In fact, if I think back, my kids nominate me almost every year to be room mom--the only years I've had "off" were the years that we were homeschooling, so not really "off," right?! I love the opportunity to be involved in their … [Read More...]
