Happy October friends! Do these months fly by or what? It’s time for another round of
My Five Favorites, and this month we’re sharing our Fall Essentials for home and fashion.
My pals’ favorites always get me in trouble, I’m anxious to see what I need!
Our sweet friend Lisa @ Shine Your Light will be back next month.

#1 ~ Velvet Embroidered Crane Pillow
World Market and fall branches and it feels completely transformed. It’s a pretty
14 “x 20” velvet lumbar, with embroidered cranes and Chinese florals, I couldn’t love
Close up of pretty texture!
#2 ~ Plaid Blazer
I’ve mentioned before Free People is one of my favorite clothing brands, and this classic
ruffle details and jeans, but I can think of several different looks…here’s my justification
that it’s worth the investment.
Pencil skirt, pearls and pumps
Brown Maxi skirt with leopard boots
Brown leggings, cream turtleneck and riding boots
Camel wide leg trousers, lace bodysuit, cap toe pumps
White jeans, white t-shirt, white leather sneakers
(of Charlie’s Angels for those of you old enough to have been a fan :)) wear them at a
presentation here in town. She looked absolutely stunning at 70!
I tried the blogger fav but felt like they looked too similar to typical black leggings.
I found these at Banana Republic and they’re exactly what I had in mind!
Flattering, sleek, and classy but not skin tight, a beautiful dark olive color, that’s more
unique than black.
BONUS!!! I purchased them online to pick up in store – when I went to the store they were
40% off! The price still hasn’t changed online, so check stock at your store and you may get
a steal! I haven’t experienced anything negative some of the reviews refer to.

#4 ~ Frozen French Baguette @ Costco
In my book there’s nothing better for a fall dinner than homemade soup and a
warm French baguette! You can find these at Costco in the frozen section during the fall
and winter. They’re delicious and super easy to pop in the oven and serve warm.
$10.69 for 10 baguettes – 5 twin packs
#5 ~ Tulip Bulbs
WARNING: Delayed gratification!!
I’m definitely an instant gratification girl, but if something is worth waiting for, a landscape
of pretty spring flowers after a long winter is high on my list. This is the month to plant
tulip bulbs for a beautiful spring garden.
While you’re at Costco picking up the French baguette grab a bag of their tulip bulbs
order on their website. Below is a photo of our yard from a few years ago, I like to plant
them in clumps of 10-15 for the biggest bang!
You should put it on your weekend to-do list because I guarantee it will make you smile
when you see little green shoots poking through the warming ground in early spring!
