Location: Mount Dora Yacht Club
October is my favorite month of the year. The weather starts to turn, however slightly, the humidity drops, and we get some of the most beautiful sunsets across Lake Dora. It's also the month we take off for a week of leaf-peeping in western North Carolina. I am so looking forward to a vacation—especially one where the phone signal will be spotty and there's a picture-worthy view in front of you at every turn. Until then, I'm keeping a mental packing list of everything I want to take with me—because let's face it, some of my Fall pieces won't see cold enough temperatures until December here in Florida.
My fall looks tend to lean toward the tomboy side: lots of plaid, jeans, boots, and minimal makeup. So, I love switching things up a bit with this kind of outfit. It's comfortable enough for day activities (switch the heels out for flats), but also great for sipping a cocktail on the outdoor patio at a local hangout and taking a stroll down to the docks to watch the sun set across the lake.
I can't get enough of this merlot color in my life, as you can see here and here. It works great with any outfit, and I love that the color can be used as a pop to a neutral outfit without being too in your face.

As we were leaving the docks, we ran into this little guy. Only a few feet long, and more than content hanging in the weeds. Gotta love Florida wildlife.
