Oh hey, it’s fall!

Hi 23rd day of September!

I’ve peeped you on my calendar at least a dozen times over the last several months in an effort to keep a mental note of the inaugural day of Autumn. And then you just kind of came and went, and I durn near missed you!

Thank goodness for style blogs, or it might have blown right by me. Bee-tee-dubs, Kendi’s outfit today is basically how I plan to dress all fall; in fact I happened to wear something super similar today with this LOFT utility blouse, which I bought in every color during their last pre-season sale. Note to self: Add “stockpiling the same article of clothing in every available shade” to the list of Ways I’m Becoming My Mother.

There were no pumpkin lattes to commemorate the first day of fall — seriously, you guys, they’re just chemical cocktails; make them at home instead — and I’m not even thinking about boots and scarves yet. We’re making the transition at the flower shop with lots of sunflowers and burlap and such (and loving it) but I haven’t even done my windows yet, so I already feel behind… I’m excited for the season, I just can’t believe it’s, like, here.

You have pretty big shoes to fill, fall. Summer was all kinds of wonderful, and she’ll be tough to beat.

Now Florida, can we get under 90 degrees?

  1. It’s such a classy daytime look and you could get really autumnal with the colours. I can’t immagine having a warm Autumn/Fall, part of the fun is the weather cooling down and the nights drawing in sooner…. Saying that, it’s still pretty sunny and mild over hear.

  2. I mistakenly wore a scarf yesterday…and boots last week. It’s just not quite cool enough yet. But what ELSE do you wear in this in-between weather? My wardrobe is so confused….Ha! And I agree about making your own latte’s at home ;)

    1. I never thought about it…is the Pumpkin Spice Latte really that unhealthy? I guess it’s a lot of chemicals?

  3. I love fall so much, and couldn’t wait for it to finally come! So happy it’s here, and the leaves are turning orange once again, it’s the best time of year!

  4. We don’t have fall here in Nigeria or in my native Australia. I got a text yesterday from the local Mango store announcing the arrival of their winter stock. I’m wondering how they sell it, given that it’s been very hot and stormy in Lagos all week. I’m looking forward to seeing the fall in a few weeks, when we go the US for a few days. Thank you for the reminder!

  5. I didn’t even realize today was the first day of fall! But I could tell by the gentle breeze when I walked my dogs, and even in the way the sun shined. I also started to crave pumpkin spice everything!
