The Golden Hour

The golden hour- that magic time just before sunset when the light is warmer and softer and just so perfect- doesn't get any more golden than on Fall evenings. With the days getting shorter and the nights getting chiller, this season is about soaking up all the magic we can before Winter sets in. Below we're talking about what we're looking forward to most this Autumn.

Dresses c/o Free People / On Claire: Amelie Mini Dress / On Lauren: Jolene Dress

Apple picking / Last year was a first for Lauren and we can't wait to go again this year. There's just nothing more quintessentially and charmingly Midwest.

Horror film fest at the drive-in movies / There's a drive-in theater just outside Chicago that plays double feature classic horror films on the weekends all October long. We pile the car full of friends and blankets, bring along spiked cider and snacks, and get a little spooked watching slasher flicks on the big screen. Check here to see if there's an open air cinema near you!

Corn mazes / A little town about an hour outside the city boasts the world's largest corn maze. I don't know about all that, but we've made it a tradition to go every year. We may be terrible at navigating our way through the maze, but there's funnel cake and hot apple cider to be had at the end so that's motivation enough!

Sweaters weather / We're all about the Autumn wardrobe! We've got our eyes on this poncho, this cardi, and most especially this beauty.

What are you looking forward to most this Fall?


  1. Hi there! Your link for the world's largerst corn maze takes me to the Free People Cardi. Don't think you meant for that to happen. Thanks for the great post. I will totally be heading to the drive in this weekend to catch Wayne's World.

    1. Whoops! Thanks so much for catching that. I guess I'm just really obsessed with that cardigan! ;) Wayne's World is my favorite...have fun! Xx. Lauren
