bits of october

Oct 30, 2013

We've been enjoying one of the most beautiful Octobers that I've ever seen. It's been unbelievably warm and I don't think it's rained once. I have to admit though, now with November around the corner, I'm getting pretty excited to give our home a little holiday makeover. Anyone else? I'm eying the prettiest metallic pillows, a faux fur throw and mercury candle holders. Can't wait! Here are a few bits from our October...

The most perfect pumpkin. Wearing my beloved Cori Lynn burnt orange skirt - total fall perfection. Taking long scenic drives with my love and soaking in the sun. Entertaining friends for Canadian Thanksgiving. Fall leaves everywhere... don't you just love the red ones?! Wearing my Gap animal print flats (pssst, they're on sale) for my daily doggy walks. Spending time in my blog nook and working on a few fabulous collaborations for November. Making homemade gluten-free veggie pizza - oh man, I'm addicted! On that note, can't wait to see what lovely moments November brings!

  1. Love this little round-up! Yay for good memories and great weather! This is actually one if the coldest Octobers we've had in a while, so I'm glad it's been so lovely and warm for you! :)

  2. We have the same desktop background!!!! Sorry, just got a little excited!

  3. It really has been a gorgeous October on the west coast! I've been kind of beside myself at how lovely it is! I'm hoping November will be just as lovely. Also, please share this gluten-free pizza recipe!

  4. Me too, hoping November will be just as kind to us. It does wonders for my mood and over all happiness!! As for the pizza recipe? Yeah, great idea! I'll pop it up on the blog in the next week-ish!! xo

  5. Beautiful pictures! It's my favourite season of the year.

    Love from South Africa

  6. I really don't think you can beat Octobers on the West Coast. Of course, the typical Summer months in the Bay area are quite cold compared to everywhere else, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. I'm also excited for November and the upcoming holidays!

  7. Hasn't this weather been just the best?! I cannot get over it, I'm feeling so spoiled - and yet, I keep looking over my shoulder, wondering when I'm going to see rain clouds. But so far so good, and I'm enjoying every minute of it! As for the holidays - I've officially started thinking about present buying and tree decorating this morning. There's no such thing as too soon!

  8. Haha, glad to hear I'm not alone on the holiday planning. I'm honestly beyond excited! :D Perhaps we could co-host a little blogger x-mas bash at your home this year!! I'd be more than happy to help put it together with you: bring food, beverages ect... let's chat about it on Saturday!! Hope your Wednesday is the loveliest Cee. It's supposed to rain later today, boo, so make sure to get out and enjoy that sun!! xo

  9. Love your pictures! That pizza looks delicious and those shoes are adorable!

  13. our month of October has been something of a many sunny, bright days that left me smiling ear to ear :) we've been luckiest but now it appears the rain's arrived...time to go puddle jumping i guess - ha.

    it's always a bit of a shock to the system on how fast (after Halloween) the turnaround happens and all the shops bring out the most amazing xmas decks. i too, can't wait to go all holly jolly soon!
