Fall Fashion

I think there are a lot of women who look forward to Fall style, because they love to layer. In the Summer, I layer necklaces and rings to make up for the layers of clothes I'm not wearing.

Autumn is a time for collard shirts and pull over sweaters, 
knee high socks and tall boots, scarves and beanies.

I'm predicting some very good trends for Fall, 
Here is what made my lust list.

60's style is back at it- bright colors and prints, plus pattern mixing is a must! 
Everyone should just go ahead and turn into a ball of wool- buy chunky sweaters and make them huge. 
The Norse print is going to be big just like the lumberjacks who wear them. If the print is too over powering try it on a backpack or hat. 
Turtle necks are very chic for fashion and I think the bigger the better. 
That black western hat is not saying goodbye just yet.. and neither is it's trendy military friend either, keep them close ;)

If you don't know what Lugs are, click here.. 
As far as colors, you can thank that Frozen chick.. ICE BLUE will be FIRE for Fall
Houndstooth and checks were once reserved for nerds only, now they're all over the runways and I like it. 
Maybe it's cause I'm a nerd, but I think you should buy a bow blouse in either print.. just saying. 

Lastly, Fall is for staying cozy. Rock your favorite sneakers and *pop that pep in your step.

donuts + coffee

man.. talk about will power..

I needed some of that the night I made these donuts. 
My sister and I could not eat them fast enough. 
And that was when they tasted the best; hot out of the oven with a sprinkle of Cinnamon sugar.

"wait, did she just type, 'oven'?"

Yes, I did. I found that if the deep fried them for 40 seconds and then baked them at 380 for 10 minutes, it gave the perfect texture, both inside and out. 
The original recipe came from here, all I did different was add a 1 teaspoon of cardamom and I used heavy cream instead of buttermilk, since I was making bite sized donuts. I also change the cooking method, as mentioned above.

They are perfect for Sunday morning breakfast, sharing with the kids or even just for you.
