I spent the majority of my morning outside today and I enjoyed it so much! The air feels so crisp and there is just an overall feeling of relaxation and fall. I love it. I could spend pratically all day outside if I had the time! In fact I did spend quite a long time outside today when I took these photos. Not only was I snapping photos, but I also did some exploring in my backyard. When I was taking photos, I heard a strange noise and after a minute of trying to figure out what it was, I realized the noise was coming from a woodpecker! I might be a bit dumb by saying this, but I didn't know there were woodpeckers in CT.? ( I also didn't think we had hummingbirds, but I saw one this summer!! I'm 99% sure it was a hummingbird, too bad I couldn't snap a photo in time.) I did manage to get a photo of the woodpecker though. It's a bit blurry and out of focus since I had a bit of trouble seeing the bird myself.
In celebration of fall, for my outfit today, I am out of shorts and into a cute floral top.
For my outfit I am wearing a cute floral top. The shirt is made more for summer as it is sleeveless, but I made the top more fall appropriate by wearing a dark denim jacket over it. The jacket keeps more warm in the cooler weather and is very cute with the top. Instead of shorts or jeans, I chose to wear a pair of thick leggings. These leggings are super comfy and I actually think they keep my legs warmer than jeans! I also decided to pull out some warmer shoes today and wore my tan boots!
I have been loving the set on bangles I received in my buddy box when I went to New Hampshire. I really love the gold color of it and how shiny it is. Plus the intricate design of the owl is so pretty. I can envision myself wearing them everyday hehe.
I am noticing as I go through my photos, that my hair is beginning to resemble the fall leaves. My hair is little black and dark brown by the roots, then blond, followed by an array of shades of red, and orange. I actually like it a lot and I think I will be keeping this hair for my senior pictures. It's super unique and cute.

So yesterday I spent the whole day at Wickem Park for the cross country invitational. Wickem Park has a really nice running course. It's very hilly, but at the same time scenic. There is also one huge hill in the middle of the race called "the green monster," but everybody stands there to cheer on the runners so it isn't that bad. My time for the race wasn't the best (in fact, I find myself slowing down this year/not improving). It sucks, but I think I have already hit my peak sophomore year so this Thurs. will be my last race. There isn't pressure on me since I'm not varsity, so I am going to just give it my best and enjoy it!

So yesterday, as I was cheering my teammates on the "green monster," there was surprisingly a photographer for the newspaper there. He wasn't for our local newspaper, but rather the Hartford Courant. Funny story, but I actually noticed him in the beginning since he had a huge camera with the longest lenses ever. I was originally standing next to him, but when I saw his camera, I though it was creepy. I felt like he was taking photos of me so I moved to the other side of my friends. Turns out he was taking photos of me! I realized that when he introduced himself and asked for our names. I'm really excited to be in the paper, but can I say that they put the ugliest photo of me in there?? lol. everyone else looks good.... oh well... I'm in the paper!!

Have you ever tried the thicker type leggings before? they are very comfy and surprisingly look really chic.
