Cozy Fall Favorites + Our Morning Routine

Mornings with Ellie are usually pretty predictable.  She wakes up around 6:00 almost every day, I scoop her up and bring her into bed with me.  She snuggles for a whole thirty seconds before she karate kicks me in the face, I change her diaper and she's off.  And when I say she's off, I mean she's completely off the walls ready to start her day.  Crazy cute bedhead and all.


I race her to the kitchen to shut the baby gate that keeps her from crashing down the cellar stairs, dodging three hungry felines along the way.  I give Ellie a banana and usually hand off the kitty feeding duties to my tiny assistant so I can attempt to make Ellie some breakfast - most frequently cheesy eggs or peanut butter toast and a sippy of milk.  Somewhere in there I'll have put Raffi on the living room TV (per request, of course) and sneak peeks at my tiny dancer while I finish making her breakfast... and clean up the trail of cat food Ellie's left behind, otherwise it will end up in her mouth. Yuck.  She starts to eat her breakfast while I grab some food for myself, and by the time I'm about to make my coffee she's generally completely all set with any kind of activity that involves sitting still for longer than ten seconds at a time.  Ellie begs me to go outside to play and I beg her to "just please let me finish my coffee and I'll do all the fun things in the world" with her.  I put some kind of outfit on that doesn't completely scream "I just rolled out of bed", Ellie picks out some shoes for the both of us and we're out the door to play by 7:30 most days.  

And that is where this post leads me!  I don't typically take a shower until whenever Ellie decides to go down for her nap, which is sometimes 9 a.m. and sometimes 1 p.m.  I like to have pajamas and loungewear that are both comfortable and a little bit cute for my mornings home with Ellie.  I have to admit that I'm not always the best at looking even somewhat presentable, and I can't even imagine what my super (super, super, super) conservative neighbors think of me walking around in the yard in some of outfits I end up outside in.  While I'm not really trying to impress anyone, it just makes me feel a little bit better and ready to start our day when I don't look like a complete mess - you know what I mean?  Today I've rounded up a few things I've come across that I can totally picture Ellie and myself wearing for the cool, cozy fall mornings that will soon be knocking on our doorstep!

Clearly Ellie wears the (color) pants in our relationship. ;)

Those slippers are from last season but they do still have some sizes available!  I grabbed them on clearance last winter and Ellie's feet will finally be big enough to fit into them this fall.  I really hope they meet her high footwear standards! ;)  I think it's more than acceptable and actually totally cute for Ellie to run around the yard in jammies and a pom-pom hat, but I like to opt for warm sweaters, graphic tees, leggings and my favorite Hunter boots.

 I feel like cozy clothes are usually at the top of my wish list and am always on the lookout for new, comfy things!  It's even better when I find pieces that can easily be "dressed up" a bit more for venturing out of the house (and yard!).  Have some favorites or cozy clothes on your fall wish list?  Please share! :)  Happy shopping + stay warm, friends! ;)
