Fall if officially here and I’m enjoying every second of it!
The weather is finally starting to cool off and the leaves are changing. This means cozy layers, over-the-knee-boots, and pumpkin spice everything. One of my favorite things about autumn is, of course, dressing for it. There’s nothing better than layering your favorite pieces and warm fall colors.
When I saw this shaker knit cardigan at Express I knew it was a fall staple I couldn’t do without. The oversized fit is super cozy–it will layer perfectly with so many outfits. Pop it over a dress, your favorite flannel, or layer it with a simple satin cami like I did; the possibilities are endless.
Jeans are kind of my thing–I pretty much live in them all year round. During the fall months I usually opt for a dark wash denim, and rips are always ok in my book. I got these distressed skinny jeans from Express and I have worn them non-stop–they’re that good! I paired them with classic black over-the-knee boots for a chic layered look. There’s something about jeans and OTK boots that just screams “FALL”. This is definitely my go-to look during the cooler months.

For me, October marks the beginning of autumn. This is when all the decorations come out, candles are lit, and the fall festivities begin. Here are 5 ways I’ve gotten in the fall spirit this October…
Get a pumpkin spice latte.
If you reallyyyy want to get in the fall spirt–get one everyday like me. Ha! (I’m totally addicted)
I also got pumpkin spice coffee creamer that I use every morning. Yum!
Decorate your house with pumpkins & mums.
A few days ago we took a trip to Lowe’s & Michaels and got lots of fall decor. Our porch is so festive and welcoming. I also added little white pumpkins all around our house.
Light some candles and watch a halloween movie.
The “Leaves” scent from Bath & Body Works is an all time favorite and a classic fall scent. Burn it while watching Hocus Pocus and you’ll definitely get in the fall spirit.
Bake some yummy treats.
I love baking mini pumpkin pies and sugar cookies. Anything with apple and pumpkin is ok in my book. I will share some of my favorite fall recipes soon.
During this time of year I always stop and reflect on the year and all of the things I’m grateful for. Every night before I go to sleep I list them out and remind my self how blessed and fortunate I am. Even if I’ve had a bad day I always feel much better after doing this.
How do you like to get in the fall spirit?
