This week's post of Outfits and Authors features an adorable book we got as a birthday gift!

A Unicorn named Sparkle is suuuuch a cute book for little ones. My 4 year old daughter Maddie thinks its super funny, and loves all the silly things that Sparkles does. In the story, Lucy anxiously awaits the arrival of her unicorn she purchased from a newspaper ad. But when Sparkles arrives, it is NOT what she expects at all. In the end, she falls in love with her pet and can't bear the thought of giving her up! (Maddie ends up falling in love with her too!)

Fall is here! And if you knew that strawberry picking is one of my favorite summer activities, you won't be surprised to learn that apple picking is at the top of my list for fall. Nothing really beats being outside in the crisp air, picking delicious local apples and snacking on hot apple cider.

We are back to routines! Just like that, summer's come to an end and we're headed for fall.

Maddie is going into her last year of preschool this year! It's my last year spending most days with her as next year she'll be in full day kindergarten.

It feels like summer is officially over! The bigger kids are back in school now, and we are slooooowly adjusting to the routine of packing lunches and snacks.

Ben is headed to Grade 2 this year! He was a bundle of nerves the first day. He was really excited to see friends we missed all summer, nervous about what to expect, and was feeling unsure about speaking in front of the class. But at the end of the day, he came out of his classroom with a big smile on his face! I was so proud and happy for him.

Up this week on Outfits and Authors is Olivia and an Olivia-worthy-inspired outfit!

I love how this little outfit really uses the colors in the book and plays them up! This adorable spotted dress is by a wonderful mama-owned shop BeLoved. Her mix of patterns and colours is SO amazing and inspiring! And I love the tiny details of pastel pinks flutter and collar contrasting with the red knee socks (by Petite Littles).  The sweetest necklace from Coral and Cloud and black leather bow from Mina Loves Bows.

We looove our Olivia books here. Both our girls do! They love following her daily adventures she gets in, and looking at all the adorable pictures. The illustrations are SO fun!

This summer we had our first every camping trip! I'm really a city girl at heart, and so camping honestly seemed totally out of my comfort zone. But I do love being outdoors and came around to trying a short camping trip with our family.

I've only ever been camping one other time with my own family when I was younger. So really, I had no idea what to expect or prepare for. But after reading many many blogs, I put together a little list of what I felt was important for our family.

We had no idea that we'd be planning a camping trip this summer! But when Maddie persistently convinced my husband to take us, we really had to go. (Especially when he comes home to tell you he's already booked a campsite!)

But after a few days of sitting on the idea, I decided to embrace it. Maddie and Ben were both really excited to try it. And I'm all for new experiences for the kids (and myself included!).
