Fall began at 10:29pm last night. I am so excited and love this season so much, that I can’t wait to share the plethora of things I love this season. The colors haven’t began to change yet, but the hues are so magnificent. They began to contrast with the tree bark and grass they fall on.
Our fashion begins to change and evolve into thicker fabrics, more layers, and richer colors. The beautiful sweaters and the thick wool fabrics. They make me excited to get dressed! I love a warm sweater, colorful scarf, and a pair of jeans. With a pair of nice boots or ballerina flats.
Plaids are also great for fall. Especially in rich colors like grey, wine, or wheat. A skirt or dress in plaid is great, but growing up going to Catholic schools, plaid became a favorite for me all year round.
Wool coats are great! Warm and stylish. Paired with a lovely tote or satchel, they become fashion statements. Any length will do, but add your favorite scarf and your daily wear is all set.
Home decor also changes a little during the cooler months. We use more candles to decorate or provide ambiance for a dinner party. The subtle light adds a bit of warmth to that fall gathering of friends.
Choosing candles that use natural tones and materials in their holders just adds to the seasonal flair. Of course, richer scents like patchouli and bergamot are more common in fall, you can also choose scents like vanilla, musk, and spice.
We also change our nail colors to match the season. OPI is one of my favorite brands of nail polish, and their Fall 2014 collection doesn’t disappoint.
Adding some outdoor elements to your home can help bring the season indoors. Gourds, apples, and a blend of grasses help bring warmth to your fall decor.
Decorating your door with a fall colored wreath helps welcome your guests to your home. Choosing flowers in fall hues can make a big difference.
Or you can use ornaments to create the same effect. Wreaths are a simple way to make your home ready for the fall season.
The fall colors outside are so warm and inviting. The brisk air makes it a necessity to drink warm beverages and eat warm dishes.
Wrapping up in a warm blanket by a fire with a good book, or enjoying a morning cup of coffee or tea is a weekend must.
The scenes of fall can be so captivating and beautiful, as they represent a change in our environment.
Take a walk and enjoy the views and colors. Enjoy this season as much as I do.
