happy Friday, gang! and hello October! it’s time to change gears and welcome fall in all her glory. not only does my wardrobe go through a seasonal update transitioning from shorts to pants, but my front porch goes through a mini-makeover too. pumpkins, mums, and a spookilicious skeleton are a few of my favorite things when October rolls into town.
last week Target released their latest designer collaboration from not one but four fashion designers. at the time, i was in Greenville, SC, for a girls’ getaway. can you believe we were all up for a Target run? that’s right, we hopped in the car and moseyed on over to check out Greenville’s Target! most of today’s ootd hails from Tar-jay, as my mother lovingly referred to her favorite store and mine. many readers write requesting affordable clothing options. you asked, and today i’m delivering.
a new shipment of heirloom pumpkins arrived at Trader Joe’s.
today’s ootd couldn’t be simpler or cuter, and it all hails from Target. all except the jean shirt from J.Crew. but Target had plenty of denim shirts on hand if you are so inclined. camo pants from Nili Lotanare the star of this outfit, and they look adorable with astriped teealso from the Nili Lotan collection. the denim shirt is the perfect third layer when the temps are cool. what’s more comfortable than a pair of sneakers? the bonus is they look terrific with dresses or jeans. all-in-all this casual ootd is ready for any fall day.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line muffin tin with 12 cupcake liners, then spray liners with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
In a blender, mix eggs, bananas, maple syrup, almond milk, vanilla extract, and spinach on high speed until well combined. The mixture should be a smooth liquid.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together almond flour, flaxseed meal, oats, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt until well combined. Then gradually pour wet mixture into bowl of dry mixture. Mix until well combined.
Divide batter evenly into liners. Bake 20-22 minutes. Test with a toothpick to ensure it comes out clean
Irish Coffee is easy to make and perfect to serve your guests on a chilly fall or winter day. this recipe hails from the famous Buena Vista Cafe located in San Francisco that first introduced Irish Coffee to America. Tullamore Dew is the recommended whiskey, but i had Bulleit whiskey on hand, so had to make do.
Found a pair of olive green pants at Target on the same order as yours and love them. Cute outfit about what I put together with mine.
Adorable, comfy outfit. I love denim and flannel shirts worn open over a tee. Your porch looks so pretty – the skeleton and spooky floral arrangement are divine! Thanks for sharing your neighbor’s Halloween decor. I laughed out loud. Tempted to fly to Athens to see the completed tableau. I just love this time of year! (Irish coffee always makes me think of my father-in-law, Walter, who made them at all family gatherings. Such good memories.)
I’m trying to picture running into you at target or Walmart. I do appreciate the budget friendly looks and you’ve inspired me to buy a pair of camo pants again. At 79; not investment pieces but fun outfits is more to my liking.
I love your Friday recipes and drinks and have made many. I now find myself in the position of needing to watch my carbohydrates. Would it be possible to add nutrition information, especially on calories and carbohydrates. Thanks
I have the same urn on my porch. Would love to know where got the interesting urn filler! Always enjoy your posts and style.
Beth thank you for shopping at a place that probably the majority of us can afford. Love your decorations.
Love the blue/green combo. I have you to thank for opening my eyes to that. It has become a favourite as blue is a staple in my neutral rotation. Pink no longer suits me, since embracing my natural hair but now green has taken its place. I get a lot of compliments on this combo., so thanks again for your inspiration.
Love all things Halloween – no big meal to plan, no presents to buy, no stress. It gives us a chance to embrace innocence, childhood memories, monkey business – and candy!!! Enjoy to the fullest, Beth.
Is your daughter in law still sharing recipes as well? Thanks.

Unfortunately, I’m unable to drink alcohol as I have a health condition that precludes it and I’m sure I’m not the only one. I wonder if you can include some non-alcoholic festive drinks along with your food recipes, please.
Incidentally, one of your recipes has been an absolute go-to for husband and self after a busy day – the roast sweet potato with egg? OMG – to die for!
