when joelle proposed that everyone write about their fall favorites, i couldn't resist. this is one of my favorite seasons, & there is so much that i love about it (even in addition to what you see here). everyone go link up - i LOVE seeing what everyone else loves about this crisp, exciting time of year... it's so inspiring. and cozy. and everything else good, really. she is also giving away some of her fall favorites, which is think is amazingly lovely. i don't usually write about giveaways on my blog, but there's no way i could overlook this one! trust me, it's worth checking out & entering.
but now, back to the good stuff.
when the weather starts to turn cool, one of my favorite feelings in the whole world is pulling on some freakishly tall boots over my tights. i firmly believe that one of the very best things about this time of year is how comfy the clothes are allowed to be. the tops i've included above are enough to make me want to run out & scoop up a whole new wardrobe, filled with things just like them.
i'm also a really big fan of dark nail polish. in fact, i have to restrain myself from wearing it year-round. i actually used to wear it year-round, but i decided saving it up for the cooler months made it more special... you know, more like a treat, which i love.
speaking of treats, who can resist a pumpkin spice latte from starbucks? because i can't. nor can i resist any warm drinks, for that matter. they are the pinnacle of coziness & comfort to me. and what better way to enjoy a sweet, coffee confection, than from in front of a football game? whether viewed via television set, with friends & food, or bundled up in a stadium packed with screaming fans, this sport takes me back in time to beloved college days... as well as provides an arena for new - and even better - memories.
and please, don't even get me started on fall decor. i nearly shed a tear of happiness when pumpkins - especially ones such as the gorgeous twinkly pumpkins above - begin popping up on porches & in store fronts. at this point, all there's really left to do is light a warm, spicy candle, & you'll have me ooohing & ahhhing in delight.
