One of the great things about living in the mid-west is that there are forest preserves EVERYWHERE around us. We have about 10 in a 5 mile radius so my family loves to sneak away and have a picnic, go for a bike ride, or walk as many weekends as we can.

Fall is a great time to do this because the deer are always out and the leafs are just so darn pretty! 
On this day we had a picnic and went on a nature walk. To finish off our time the kids ran like crazy people all over the giant field. Ah, fresh air and nature....LOVE IT!

The weather was in the upper 50's but when the sun was not out, boy did it feel cold.
I layered up two of my new Golden Tote items for a simple but cute fall outfit.

Here is what Ryan wore:

Top: JC Penny // Jeans: 7 for all Mankind // Shoes: Sketchers // Coat: Dockers // Sunnies: Ray Ban

I love this look. 
Menswear is so great because if he ditched the sketchers and put on a dress shoes he would be good for a date or casual day at work. 
My husband is really great at mixing and matching his work clothes with his weekend wear by layering and switching the bottom half of the look.

What can I say, I'm not the only one with a sense of style in this household! ;)

The kids loved walking through the woods on a trail we found. 
We collected a few new leafs for our fall centerpiece and boy did they sleep good that night. 

What do you do on the weekends?
Ever go to local forest preserves and just take in the scenery?
