Today we traveled to see the amazing Niagara Falls!!!! To make sure I was comfy and yet stylish, I decided to go with this casual chic outfit. I really like the purple accents and brown accessories because it makes the outfit warm and approachable. And of course, I had to add an eBay item for my eBay obsession challenge so I went with this cute purple necklace.

When we arrived at the hotel, the very first thing we did was leave our bags and head out to explore! The U.S. side of the Niagara Falls has a beautiful park surrounding the falls filled with pretty trees and flowers. It was so beautiful to walk around the park while looking at the fast rapids.

Then we finally got to the falls and let me say, they are A-MA-ZING!!

I really just couldn't believe I was there looking at the falls... it was a very surreal experience.

They were so beautiful and inspiring, I could stay there all day looking at the vast amount of water pouring down the falls... they were so beautiful.

We spent most of the day just looking at the falls and enjoying the magical moment... it was wonderful :)

Then we walked around the park a little more until we got to the second waterfall (there are two waterfalls in Niagara Falls) which was even more impressive than the first waterfall!

It was completely breathtaking to say the least... We even got to see the bottom of the falls a little better... there was so much mist from the splash on the rocks; it was just so surreal.

At night, the falls are supposed to be lit up with different colors, so we decided to go take a look. They looked amazing!!! They had all sorts of colors like blue, red, pink, purple, and yellow; and they would change every 5 minutes or so. The colors were beautiful, the photos don't give the colors justice!

It was the perfect first day.. the falls were beautiful and we had a wonderful time. My boyfriend was so nice as to say all of these romantic things while we saw the falls... Life just doesn't get much better than this ;)

    I'm loving your purple flower necklace, and the print on the skirt is so cute!

    If you have any time and are going to the canadian side, there is a town called Niagara on the Lake, and it is simply gorgeous. I went there for a day last summer and I definitely want to go back!
