A Cozy Fall Afternoon

November 6, 2017

There's nothing like a cozy fall afternoon at home while it's pouring rain outside. I usually like to spend that time reading or watching a movie or TV show bundled up on the sofa. And those activities are paired best with a hot beverage and some sweet treats. I had actually baked a cake for this post (which is another of my favorite fall activities) but the icing didn't turn out picture perfect so I decided not to include it. It was delicious though. By the way, you can read more about being a perfectionist here.

After this shoot we decided to venture outside and go to the movies. We hadn't been to the cinema for a while since there wasn't anything worth watching. We ended up watching Battle of the Sexes, have you seen it? It's a really good movie based on a true story which I'm sure will get some Oscar nominations. Emma Stone and Steve Carell give amazing performances. Right now I'm looking forward to the new version of Murder on the Orient Express.

I'm actually looking for new TV shows to watch so maybe you guys can help me out. I've heard that The Collection is a must for Downton Abbey fans. To give you an idea of what I like I love watching Friends re-runs, Modern Family, Homeland or Sherlock. Oh, and I also loved Big Little Lies! What are you watching right now?

OUTFIT DETAILS
Tommy Hilfiger shirt: I love the pleated details on the collar, sleeves and hem. A crisp button down never gets old. Unfortunately, this one is not available any longer but you have some beautiful options below.

it's pouring rain -  raining a lot; another way to say it: it's raining cats and dogs
bundle up - dress warmly (abrigarse, arroparse, taparse)

    It's so disappointing when a cake doesn't turn out the way you've envisioned! But I'm usually the only one who thinks it's not perfect...

  20. Sounds like the perfect afternoon, Cristina! I love to lounge too if I can, especially when the weather is kinda gloomy! I love to read, watch TV and relax with a scented candle maybe. We haven't been to the movies in forever either! I only go if it's something worth watching, as it can be incredibly expensive.
    I've gotten on the Bandwagon and been watching Stranger Things...I'm like you and prefer more lighter shows like Friends..but this one managed to suck me in!

  21. Love this look! I am all about a white button down. There is nothing better to do on a raining day than to do absolutely nothing and cake... yes!!
    Big Little Lies was so good! I am hoping for a second season! Right now I am watching house of cards, pretty interesting
