Happy (Second Day of) Fall Y’all

Happy second day of fall! Even if it isn’t cold enough outside, I just want to put on a sweater scarf and boots… Being honest though, it usually don’t get chilly enough for that until October. That’s why I personally love getting dressed this time of year. The possibilities are endless with mixing and matching your favorite summer, winter and fall pieces. The fall season brings so much joy and color. The leaves in the mountains turn shades of orange and yellow that are just enchanting. I’ll make sure to get pictures this year. For all you Starbucks lovers, it’s pumpkin spice latte time! They even released a new fall flavor this week called toasted graham… I might just have to try it.

Mixing pieces has always been one of my favorite ways to style clothing. Now that you never know if it is going to be chilly or warm outside, it is usually best to be ready for whatever the weather person got wrong. I decided to try something new and style a t-shirt over a dress (one of my best friend’s dresses I  borrowed… for a while). I was a little concerned that it wouldn’t look right but the colors of this amazing Whiskey Jam shirt matched the skirt perfect, and don’t be surprised if you I wear this to Pilgrimage Festival this weekend.

Seriously this shirt… My dad surprised me with it and I don’t think he could have done a better job picking out something for me.


If you know anything about me, you know that I love the city of Nashville beyond words.


Even if this dress isn’t mine, I am still so obsessed with the colors, style, pattern and the fact that it’s Forever 21. My chancing at keeping it are pretty good until Hayes reads this… Sorry little!


When fall days get a little warm, all I need to do it take off the t-shirt and be on my way.


I traded the hat for the shirt, because the hat just added that reminder of fall that I couldn’t resist.




For fall, every girl needs a good pair of motorcycle bootsa funky patterned dress, and a felt hat.

…. and I made some pies yesterday! Happy fall!

For the drink of the day… Pumpkin beer!

I have never been a huge fan of pumpkin flavored things, but I’m open to suggestions! What are your favorite pumpkin beers that I should try? I never know which ones are going to be too pumpkin-y for me or which ones just don’t taste any different. I want to know what you think! Share you thoughts and I’ll try them out!

YAY! Pilgrimage Festival starts Saturday! I am seriously so excited. It will be one of the highlights of my year. Make sure to check out my Instagram (@responsiblyirresponsiblelife) for live updates this weekend! Saturday, I am so excited to be seeing Trampled By Turtles. My gal pal, Tori, and I were supposed to see them at Hangout this summer, but we got a little to lazy (read: drank an extra beer) to move out of our perfect spots in the sand. Lucky for us, we get a do over. Their Bluegrass style just has me waiting for someone to start shaggin’ with me. You can hear the talent oozing out of their fingertips while they are playing. It is easy to tell that they love what they are doing, and that is the best kind of music to enjoy. Here’s my favorite song by them; hope you love it as much as I do!

you do you, rach
