AUTUMN FAVORITES.

Oh Autumn, you are teasing me with your cool mornings lately. I am just waiting for the time I'll be able to wear flannel all day without getting too warm. I know that day is on the way...I can feel it. Also, sorry I'm not sorry for all the autumn-themed posts that are bound to be happening on here over the next couple of months. I'm pretty passionate about it. ;)

And now it's time for autumn favorites and a chance for you to get to know some random things about me. Aren't you excited??






FAVORITE FALL FASHION/CLOTHING ITEM?
Flannel for all the days. I could wear cozy flannels for the rest of my life. Also, scarves. I have far too many scarves, but who doesn't love them? It's like living in a constant hug all day. Oh and moccasins. They are my favorite shoes for the autumn season. Oh gosh, now that I'm thinking about it, I love it all!

FAVORITE FALL DRINK?
Unlike the rest of the world, I don't care for pumpkin spice lattes. I'm more of a caramel latte kind of girl. Yummmm.

SOMETHING ON YOUR FALL BUCKET LIST?
Oh man! I'm coming up with a fall bucket list, so more on that later. One item on the list? Pumpkin decorating. Duh!



FAVORITE FALL RECIPE?
We always make delicious pumpkin and cream cheese muffins during the autumn months. My mouth watered just thinking about them. I can't wait!

HALLOWEEN CANDY OR PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE?
Like I said, pumpkin spice isn't my thing. Bleck. So halloween candy it is! Specifically, candy corn. I could eat unhealthy amounts of that sugary goodness.

FAVORITE FALL SCENT?
I LOVE the smell of fall itself. You know, that smell of the outdoors when it's crisp out with a nice breeze that is gently pulling the golden leaves from their branches? That is my favorite smell. Oh, and bonfires. And pumpkin muffins baking in the oven.

WHAT IS FALL (WEATHER) LIKE WHERE YOU LIVE?
Glorious. Just glorious. The humidity starts to fade. The days are the perfect temperature for wrapping up in cozy layers. It's still in the upper 70s to low 80s during the day right now, but it is cooling off slowly but surely. The leaves don't fully change colors until later in October, but we'll get a little preview of color here and there. (P.S. these photos are from last year. The leaves had a stunning year last fall. I'm hoping for a repeat!"

Your fall scent. Yes. Exactly. I'm more of a crispy clean air scent mingled with bonfire smoke girl than I am a synthetic-candle smell. But I still buy the candles, ha!

Brianna DePauw said...

What a great list! I love Fall too, my sweet tooth always gets the best of me this season!

Haley Bohon said...

Um, YES. Candy corn. I love it, but I have friends who hate it and they all give me a hard time! Glad you're on my side with this!

Emily Abernathy said...

Gorgeous pictures! Thanks for sharing! I have really loved the explosion of fall posts in blog world. :) They make me SO HAPPY!!

Julie said...

I can't tell you how nice it is to find someone else who hates pumpkin spice lattes! I am a caramel macchiato girl all the way.

Amy said...

i want to wear flannel at all times.
seriously - all times.
also i think i counted last fall and i had like 25 scarves...my gosh. and i just bought more. -__-
i remember our dislike for PSL when we chatted at starbucks (AHH i can't believe that happened!)
i need to come up there for fall. just drive up, roll the windows down, andl et all the beautiful leaves fly into my car to take home ;) hahaha

Amy said...

JULIA!! :) it was sooooo nice to meet you at the mixer.
and i hate PSL too...just groady!

Rebecca Petersen said...

I just love fall scents! A couple weeks ago I bought the pumpkin apple candle at bath and body works and it is just PERFECT! I've been burning it every single day since buying it! I don't really like pumpkin spice lattes either, but that's because I don't like coffee. I do love anything pumpkin! I've already made pumpkin ginger waffles, pumpkin quesadillas, pumpkin pie, and pumpkin bundt cake. And that was just from one week! I go crazy with baking in the fall and winter.

The shoes! The shoes!! They are so cute. Where are they from? 😍😍

If you like flannel you'll have to swing by my blog tomorrow morning. My plaid flannel obsession will be unveiled...

Oh, how I love candy corn!! It is the one thing I must buy every fall. And it is also the one thing I eat a lot of [maybe too much?] all season long. Give me the candy over PSL any day :)

meg - me with the three said...

YES! No more humidity!!!

Angela said...

Moccasins!! Yes!! I'm also not a fan of the PSL... I like Mexican Mochas a lot when it comes to the colder fall weather. So delish!

allisonramsing said...

My favorite things about fall are Caramel Apple Spices at Starbucks. I had one of my first of the season last night!

Elizabeth Mayberry said...

I love autumn! PS: these pictures rock!

Madison said...

I'm not the biggest fan of pumpkin spice lattes either! It doesn't even taste like pumpkin! But anyways, love your fall faves list! So many good things on it!

Julie said...

Hey! It was so great meeting you too! I think there should be an anti-PSL club, or at the very least tshirts. I would buy an antil-PSL shirt.

Susannah said...

I love moccasins in the fall too! I live in those and boots. :-)

Samantha@Elah Tree said...

To, to fun! This has me missing real Autumn weather!

Kiki said...

"the smell of fall itself." YES times a million! So excited for the weather to cool down, the ground to dry up a bit, and the leaves to start falling. Fall is THE best. :)

Kasey Moffitt said...

Caramel lattes all the way girlfriend! Pumpkin spice is pretty much dirt ;)
And then you had to go and make my mouth water with the mention of those muffins. That sounds delish!

Meg McIlvaine said...

#kindredspirits :) So glad you agree!
Oh man, those muffins. I need to make them soon!

Meg McIlvaine said...

You get it! The smell of fall is just the best!!

Meg McIlvaine said...

COME VISIT ME! ;)

Meg McIlvaine said...

Me too! I just bought myself a pair of riding boots and I can't wait to wear them!

Meg McIlvaine said...

Agreed! I'm just not a fan. :)
And thanks!! I get so excited about fall!

Meg McIlvaine said...

Me too! #besties
Thanks! They are from last year! I can't wait for our leaves to start turning!

Meg McIlvaine said...

Oh YUM. I have tried one before and I liked it but I couldn't finish the whole thing because it is so sweet!

Meg McIlvaine said...

Oh that sounds yummy!

Meg McIlvaine said...

Girl, you understand me. I can't wait.

Meg McIlvaine said...

I think we went through an entire bag of candy corn this weekend. HAHA. Oops.

Meg McIlvaine said...

They are Minnetonka Moccs and I got them from DSW! Check them out! Checking your post out now! :)

Meg McIlvaine said...

Oh my goodness. That sounds delightful!
Pumpkin quesadillas?? I may have to give those a shot!

Meg McIlvaine said...

Hahahahahhaa. I need to purge my scarf collection of the ones I never wear anymore.
Girl, come on up! We will go exploring.

Meg McIlvaine said...

Yay!!! I love caramel in all my coffee drinks!

Meg McIlvaine said...

Thanks! Haha me too!! Bring on all the autumn posts!

Meg McIlvaine said...

What?? It's delicious! I ate so much of it this weekend. Haha.

Meg McIlvaine said...

Mmmmm me too. :)

Meg McIlvaine said...

Yes yes yes!! Twins! :)

Amy said...

i need to make that little vacay happen! maybe in the spring some time!!

Victoria said...

I'm going through The Circle links...:)


You pull off flannel soooo well! I dream of being able to wear it, but I just don't "know how"! Seriously. :)


Caramel lattes are really good! I have a few favorites and PSL is NOT one of them.



The way that you described autumn where you live might just be my favorite. Oh, and those muffins sound really, really good.

Meg McIlvaine said...

Girl, throw that flannel on with a pair of skinnies and some flats or boots and your'e good to go. ;)


Yay for caramel latte buddies!

Victoria said...

I'm too skinny for skinnies! Bird legs + skinnies = super bird legs 😂

I'll just have to stick to my chunky sweaters and vests and admiring other peoples' flannels for now!
