What I Love About Fall

The deeper we get into the fall season the more I remember why I love this time of year.  This is my ode to fall!  Here are my favorite things about fall in no particular order.


1. all the beautiful colors
Can we just take a moment to appreciate all of the amazing colors fall has to offer.  Golds, reds, oranges...It's like an Instagram photo op every time you walk out the door.


2. crunching leaves
There is something so satisfying about leaves underfoot.  My inner kid is filled with joy at the thought of crunching a pile of leaves.


 

   3. hot drinks (cocoa, cider, pumpkin spiced lattes)
I'm a hoarder of teas and this time of year really enables me to overstock on my favorite beverage.  Although I love a good tea, there is also a special place in my palate for warm apple cider and pumpkin spice lattes (of course!).

 
4. crisp morning air
Early commutes to work are a bit more bearable when you are greeted with the slight chill and refreshing aroma of a crisp fall morning.




5. big scarves
Accessories are my weakness during the colder months, especially scarves.   Not only are they cute but they’re great transitional pieces too.  




        6. oversized sweaters and cardigans
 I’ve always loved a cozy oversized sweater but recently my cozy vibes have extended to cardigans as well.  I’m living in my marled boyfriend cardigan at the moment and I just bought more cardigans because I can’t get enough of them!


7. homemade chili

Recently I've been making some turkey chili that is amazing!  I'm obsessed with it and I don't want to eat anything else.

  


8. dark berry lipstick and nail polish
During the fall I live in a deep berry lip and can't get enough of dark nail polishes.  I posted my favorite lipsticks on Monday and I have another post about my favorite nail polishes coming at the end of the week.


 9.  boots
The second the weather cools off, I bust out my brown ridding boots and wear them every chance I get.  I'm even wearing them as I write this post. Love them!


10.  new seasons of shows to watch
Although I get so much more blogging done and I’m a more productive human being when the summer hiatus rolls around, I anxiously await the new seasons of my favorite shows.  Currently I’m loving Sleepy Hollow, Reign, Originals, and the Vampire Diaries.  One of my favorite parts of fall is cozying up under a blanket with a warm cup of tea and binge watching new episodes.



What do you love about fall?

    1. Thanks Leta! I got into it a few seasons after it started but I'm completely hooked now. I'm disappointed Elena isn't in the show anymore but I'm trying to look past that this season. So far I'm on the fence but the time jump scenes are looking pretty interesting.

    I'm jealous! Number 10 though is definitely something to be excited about, new TV shows are my favourite and also oversized jumpers make everything better!

    1. Season envy is one of the crummy things about following bloggers on the other hemisphere. I feel you Liz! I agree, oversized jumpers do make everything better!

  6. Lovely post :) Unfortunately, autumn isn't as exciting here in the UK - no crunching leaves or beautiful colours; just grey skies and rain all year round, haha :P <3 x

    1. Sorry to hear about that Kay! It's been drizzly off and on here all fall. How are you supposed to take any great fall pictures if it's bleak outside?! Thanks!

  7. I agree with all of these! Chunky knits, dark make up, hot chocolates and cosy evenings make for the perfect autumn! xx
