39 Fall Outfits & New Fitness Challenge

Hi friend! I hope you’re having a great week! Ours is off to a great start. We got my daughter’s Halloween costume and we have my son’s football game tomorrow.

New Fitness Challenge

I decided (rather impulsively) to run the half marathon again this year. The race is October 29, so that doesn’t give me much time to train, but I’m committed.

I finished my 10K steps a day challenge and wanted a new fitness goal to focus on for the next couple months. In November, I’ll be going on a cruise to Mexico to celebrate my dear friend Marianna’s 40th birthday, so hopefully, this helps tighten things up. I tend to eat better when I’m exercising regularly, so it’s a win/win.

Rhonda (aka Cookie Queen) helped design my training plan (she’s a runner) and I’m running 4 days a week, mostly 3-4 miles with increasingly long runs once a week. I think my longest run will be 10 miles a week and a half before race day.

I ran this race last year and finished in 2 hours and 22 minutes. I’m just proud that I completed it and that I didn’t stop to walk – I was afraid if I did, I wouldn’t start running again! That’s my goal again this year – just run the whole thing.

This year, my little brother Austin, agreed to run with me! I’m sooo excited for that! He’s 12 years younger than me and works out every morning before work, but is just starting to run. I’m thankful that we have each other to support and check in on.

And, as soon as I mentioned doing the half marathon again, my very sweet boyfriend Elliott said he’d be there. I told him that would be awesome because, last time, I was all alone. “Not this time.” He’s really the best.

39 Fall Outfits

All this running is making long for cooler temps and I have a whole month’s worth to share with you! I broke it down into sections like blue jeans outfits, black jeans outfits, pants outfits, jumpsuits, skirts/dresses, and athleisure. Plus, my favorite new jacket that will go with everything!

I hope this gives you some inspiration for your own Fall wardrobe!

  1. Hi Megan! Just want to say that I LOVE your style. I follow three other blogs and yours is by far my favorite. You have such great taste in clothes and in how you style them. Also love the accesories.

    Have a great Tuesday!

    1. Hey, love your outfits. However, many of y’all that show clothes keep saying that under the bust is the smallest part on a woman’s body and that’s not always true. My ribs stick out and I’m not a big person (5’1.5″ tall 112 lbs). So maybe say, under the bust is the smallest part for some women, instead?

  2. Really like your new haircut and how versatile it is. It’s great as a blow out and also when it’s curled like when you’re wearing the orange dress by the front door and welcome mats. How do you curl it like that? Do you have a post I can look at? Also good luck on the 1/2 marathon!! Hope you have cool weather or an early morning start time.
