I recently popped into Old Navy to do a little fall try on session for you all. They had some great basics for layering for this season.
Here are some of my favorites from my Old Navy fall try on.

First up, I tried a pair of their wide leg jeans. I like that these are a high waist to tuck in that mom pooch. I would definitely wear these with a heeled boot or wedges to give some height.
I paired my basic jeans and top with this utility jacket. I love that it has a cinched waist for a more fitted look.
This corduroy skirt would be super cute with some brown tights or leggings underneath and a chunky scarf as the weather gets chillier.
So you all know my love for pantsuits runs deep and so obviously this one had to come home with me. It was on sale leftover from the summer for $16 in store. I paired it with a burnt orange cardigan for a fall look. I think it would look super cute with a white jacket or cardigan for spring/summer as well.
(As I sit here putting this together I realize I may be obsessed with burnt orange)
I fell in love with these distressed boyfriend jeans! I loved them so much, I went home and bought them online for $24.99. (They came to $45 in store).
Paired with a graphic tee and cardigan it’s a cute casual look.

Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate
Homemade hot chocolate with pumpkin and spices makes it velvety and perfect for fall. Put all ingredients in the crockpot and it’s ready in an hour!
2 cups heavy cream or half and half
2 cups milk
1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup pumpkin puree (make sure it’s puree, not pumpkin pie filling)
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp pumpkin spice extract or 1 tsp of pumpkin pie spice (I like the extract because you can add it to other beverages)
Combine all of your ingredients in the crockpot and whisk together.
Cook on high for 1 hour, stirring occasionally then place on keep warm.
Add some Rumchata, whiskey, bourbon or Fireball to really spice it up 🙂
Serve in these little cauldrons for a festive Hocus Pocus watch party or Halloween party. Top with whipped cream and sprinkles.
This past weekend my sister and I went to the Apple and Wine Fest. We go every year and have so much fun wine tasting and getting in the mood for fall. If you’ve never tried wine from the Finger Lakes it typically is sweeter with that concord grape flavor. Very different from my usual dry Squealing Pig Sauvvy B.
Have you guys seen the viral butter boards? It’s basically a board slathered with delicious butter and herbs and things for dipping bread. Just google it and you will see them all.
So this may be TMI but we’re all friends here. This week I joined the bidet club and I am never going back. Seriously. Life changing 🙂
True Crime fans if you have not seen Dahmer on Netflix, what are you doing with your life? Binge it this weekend! It is phenomenal and now I’m re-watching it for a second time. The acting is amazing, the soundtrack, everything.
I shared my Halloween Findsyesterday on the blog. There’s some really fun things including those 3-D bats that have been a favorite for the past 3 years. I am also obsessed with the skeleton wine glass. You can see them all here.
This upcoming week I’m sharing some ideas for a Hocus Pocus watch party. I plan to make a beverage and I asked you guys in my IG stories if you wanted it to be kid friendly or just for the adults. After talking to a few of you I think I’m gonna have two versions, so stay tuned 🙂
And now for some fun inspiration from some of my friends. There’s so many things that I loved this week!
If you’re looking for an easy comforting weeknight meal, this sheet pan gnocchi is where it’s at. Crispy pillowy gnocchi with sausage, butternut squash and spinach topped with shredded gruyere cheese and the best part, it’s ready in 30 minutes! Scroll down for my easy sheet pan gnocchi recipe. And for another one of my favorite fall sheet pan recipes, click here.
Sheet Pan Gnocchi with Sausage and Butternut Squash
1 bag of gnocchi (I used Trader Joe’s cauliflower gnocchi but you can use any kind)
1 package of sweet italian chicken sausage, cut into chunks.
1 butternut squash, cubed
1/2 red onion diced
1 cup of brussel sprouts, shaved or sliced thin
sage leaves, roughly chopped
1 bag fresh baby spinach
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
On a large baking sheet, spread out the gnocchi, sausage, butternut squash, onion and brussel sprouts. Drizzle with olive oil, chopped garlic, salt and pepper and toss. Sprinkle with fresh sage.
Bake in the oven for about 20-25 minutes, flipping occasionally so it can roast evenly.
Remove from the oven after 20-25 minutes and add the fresh baby spinach to the sheet pan. Sprinkle with shredded gruyere cheese.
Place back in the oven and broil for 5-10 minutes until the spinach is wilted and everything is golden brown.
Remove from the oven and serve. Top with additional shredded cheese.
