Fall is coming! Here’s My Summer 2017 Instagram Roundup

With summer rapidly drawing to a close, my heart rejoices knowing pumpkin patches, apple cider and bonfires are just around the corner! Summer is nice and all but I’m a true fall love. To me, fall is the season where everything comes alive- the air is crisp and the scarves are big!

This summer has been absolutely bonkers! It kicked off in Florida and is coming to a close in Washington State. What happened in between? Lots of moving around, visits with friends and one cross country road trip!

Summer 2017: Blogger Babes

Let’s start off the 2017 Instagram Roundup with some of my favourite babes! I was so glad to get to spend some time with my blogging bestie Shell from A Courageous Beauty and my shopping twin Kristen from A Midwestern Mix.  How gorgeous are these ladies? I recommend giving their blogs a check- you won’t regret it!

Summer 2017: Major Collabs

During all of the cross country road tripping and moving, I also was very privileged to work with some phenomenal companies! Here are two of my fav collabs of the season: Samsung and LIFEWTR (seriously GOOD hydration)!

Summer 2017: Major Moves

Speaking of the moving madness- driving across the country was one of the most beautiful experiences of my life, literally! Mr. K and I fell in love with Wyoming and are seriously considering living there post leaving the military life. Of course, all the driving and hotels left a little puppy very sleepy! (BTW these two shots didn’t make the ‘gram, they are just some personal shots I wanted to share).

Summer 2017: All Black

Over the past few months of warmness, I also found a rhythm with my style- you wouldn’t believe how living out of a suitcase can change one’s style! I’ve always loved an all black look but really embraced the monotone during Summer 2017.

Something else happened during Summer 2017; I stepped away. I didn’t snap my way across America, I didn’t share every amazing meal or boutique coffee shop, I didn’t worry about likes or shares- I spent every moment in the here and now. Which is exactly what I needed. How was your summer 2017?

    I am SAD about summer ending. Maybe my first Pumpkin Spice Latte will help me get in the mood soon!

      I’m the only person who doesn’t like PSL! However, I’m so ready for Christmas drinks!

    I need to do that– step away from social media for a while.
