Fall Home Decor Refresh

Fall Home Decor Refresh Fran Acciardo

I'm throwing a dinner party tomorrow and it's gotten me in such a mood to decorate my apartment for fall; I've already gotten out my autumnal candles and a few pumpkins (I mean, obviously), but I've been wanting to incorporate more candlesticks, autumnal colors, and little things like that. Of course, the dinner party requires all sorts of festive serving dishes, seasonal cocktail napkins, etc as well. Queue the round-up of a few home decor pieces for this season..!

This Week's Top 10, Fall Recipes, Fall Shopping, etc

1. Happy Friday! I returned home from Dallas on Wednesday and I am so excited to spend the rest of fall enjoying New York. I had a lovely time with Joe in Dallas; we golfed, got massages, and just hung out, and it was so relaxing as usual. I also got to see my friends Louise and Claire, which was a fun surprise!

2. While there, I made this pumpkin bread and it turned out SO delish! Just a note, I halved the recipe (except for the chocolate chips, of course) and it still made a large loaf.

3. Also, we finally watched Jury Duty and LOVED it. It had us both laughing out loud! If you haven't seen it yet, I totally recommend it. Just a light, funny, quick series.

Fall Finds

There's no debate that fall is the best time of year for outfits! I have far more sweaters than I need but I absolutely love a cozy outfit with a big knit, jeans, booties, and autumnal accessories. I rounded up some of my favorite fall finds, including a perfect suede purse, a chic jacket that comes in a few neutral shades, a classic tennis bracelet with a twist, my favorite lip gloss, a timeless barn jacket, and so many more. 

All of my picks come in at reasonable price points as well!

It's been a while since I wrote a Favorites post, let alone a blog post sharing anything besides a travel recap! I feel like I've been in a really solid spot lately with my haircare, beauty routine, outfits, and more, and want to do a full recap of what I've been loving here.

Malaga & Marbella, Spain Recap

Malaga & Marbella, Spain Recap Fran Acciardo

Two weeks ago I traveled to the Costa Del Sol region of Spain for my mom's birthday trip! Joe and I flew out to Malaga to meet my mom and brother to celebrate my mom's 60th birthday. My family had never traveled to Europe together before, so it was really special, in addition to just being able to celebrate my mom's milestone birthday with her. She invited Joe along and it was just such a fun trip with some of my favorite people! Let's recap it!

After traveling a lot already this year, I realized I couldn't really join in on the entire Spain trip with my mom and brother; they started in Madrid and went to Barcelona and Grenada before Joe and I arrived. We tagged along just for the second half and it worked out so well! We stayed in Malaga, but we took little day trips to Marbella, Peurto Banus, and Mijas.

October Moodboard (Desktop & iPhone Wallpaper)

Hi October! Apologies for getting this up late today; I had the craziest, most fun, but busy weekend! On Friday I attended the absolute most fabulous wedding ever for my gorgeous, lovely friend Taylor, and yesterday went to the ballet with my high school bestie Lauren and our boyfriends. Ohh my gosh, what a weekend, what a month! September began for me in Raleigh, NC visiting my mom, followed by a weekend in Chicago, a week in Spain, and then this final whirlwind wedding weekend. I'm feeling so grateful for all of the lovely people in my life, but also ready for a relaxing, cozy fall ahead.

I think I'm finally done with travel for the year, for the most part. Of course, I'll travel for the holidays, and I think I'll head to Dallas to see Joe once or twice before the end of the year as well, but all of the little trips and vacations are over (for now). I'm happy to spend more time in NYC over the next few months as it's my favorite time of the year, especially here.

Anyway, I hope you love this month's mood board as much as I do. Please tag me on Instagram if you download it- I absolutely love to see the mood board on your screens!!
