First Signs

Ahh, the first signs of fall. Nothing makes me happier than that. The air is starting to feel crisp and It’s the only time of year I can wear bare legs and layers on top and be perfectly comfortable. Also, for some odd reason, the start of the season makes me want buy lots of candles (like pumpkin spice & warm caramel apple).  Here’s to a long, long fall and a short winter – one can hope, right?

  • Courtney

    Fall is also my absolutely FAVORITE season. I love layering without being absolutely freezing cold. So beautiful. I almost wish I lived somewhere that had fall weather all through out the winter, but though I'd be in styling heaven, I'd miss out on all of those winter things that make us so happy during Christmas.

    You look gorgeous–I love this look. And what a beautiful scarf!!
