Today, my friends, is the day I've been looking forward to for a while now. The first. day. of. fall. Yay! I love fall so much I decided to tell you just a few of my favorite things about it. :)
Time for pumpkin flavored things (although I've been drinking pumpkin spice lattes for a few weeks now, oops), leaves changing color, warm layers, cableknit sweaters, riding boots and booties in rich cognac leather, leggings and long-sleeve tees, duck boots, camp socks, hot chocolate, camp fires, quilted vests, scarves, Shep Shirts, plaid, fur (faux), soup, open windows, snuggles, fall candles, new seasons of your favorite shows, new shows, his sweaters, crisp cloudy days, cashmere, smells, crunchy leaves and stepping on them just to hear them crunch, football, apple cider, mums, anniversaries (ours is tomorrow!), choosing hot coffee over iced again...maybe..wassle, rich lipstick colors, cinnamon in everything, furrier and fluffier cats and dogs, fun decorations, festivals, new wardrobe, apple desserts, sales on warm weather clothes and new fall clothes, trading floppy straw hats for felt ones, colors like burgundy, pumpkin, topaz, navy (but let's be real, navy is a year-round color), winter white, and emerald, cords, Hunters even if it's not raining, leather handbags and totes, leopard accessories, being outside for long periods of time sans sweat, summer travel slows and there's more time with friends and family, and the end and a new beginning.
If you think about it, nature really ends and begins with fall. The leaves fall off, trees and plants become bare, and there starts the beginning of life again. Or at least that's how I see it.
I've mentioned just a (few) of my favorite things about fall, what are some of yours?? Happy fall y'all!
