I have to admit that Spring and Summer are my favorite seasons. I do like fall, but more for the fun activities we get to do like tailgating and football games. Because of this I wanted to wait until the first day of fall to give you my favorites so I could enjoy every last day of summer.
Since I don’t drink coffee, I can’t jump on the pumpkin drinks at Starbucks, but I can enjoy my delicious Caramel Apple Spice. It tastes like a hot apple juice drink with cinnamon, caramel, and whipped cream. What could be better? It is great on a cool day to warm you right up. I can’t wait to get my first one of the season.
I first talked about these booties on my September Pinspired post here. I haven’t been a huge fan of booties, mostly because I have thicker legs and I think they are more flattering on people with long, thin legs. When I saw these booties, I thought they were perfect – more like heels with a little bit of bootie. The best part is that they are from Payless, so they’re very affordable. Since they are sold out, you can buy them on eBay here. I can’t wait to wear them with tights!
In order to keep you spring and summer dresses going through fall, you’re going to need a good pair of tights. Enter SPANX. I cannot stress how much I love these tights. I know it seems weird that they go all the way up to your bra, but trust me, you will love them. Because they go up so high, you don’t have to worry about the muffin top problem that you would get with normal control top tights or pantyhose. This is the one item that I will definitely stock up on. I can’t wait to try different colors and maybe patterns this year.
Grace & Lace Legwarmers ($34)
I have been watching these all summer and I can’t wait to buy them for fall. I imagine I will mostly wear them for lounging around the house, but I like to think that I might experiment and wear them over jeans and leggings. My feet and legs are always cold, so I think these will be perfect and cute for downtime with the hubby.
I’m in love. Now don’t get me wrong, I still love my white ceramic Michael Kors watch from the summer favorites list, but lately I’ve been adding some gold into my wardrobe and I need a watch that matches. I also think that I need to put the white watch away and bring it out for some winter white in December and January. When I saw this gold Michael Kors watch I thought I died and went to heaven. It is just so beautiful, I have to have it!
Now that summer is over, I am ready for a new fall color. I think that CND Shellac/Vinylux in Masquerade will do the trick. It is not red, but more of a dark red/purple that is perfect for fall. If you haven’t heard of Vinylux yet, check out my post here.
Flower Headband ($36.99)
I have a few outdoor events to go to this fall, an outdoor beer festival, not to mention lots of tailgating. I need to stay warm, but I don’t want hat hair. Enter the adorable flower headband. It keeps your ears warm without killing your hair for the evening. I particularly like this one from Lucy’s Knitting Shop because of the cute little button.
I bought two infinity scarves last year in black and camel and I wore them everyday. They solve the problem of having a bulky scarf under your fitted coat. They are great to wear with a t-shirt or with a coat or jacket. The place I got mine from doesn’t have them anymore, so I found a great Etsy shop, Beckers Creations, where you can buy them in any color.
This beer is perfect for fall, it is crisp and fruity, but not dark. It has a cherry/honey taste and is great by itself or with dinner. Each bottle is 165 calories so I like to have one every once in a while.
I live in Michigan, which means that the cold weather is approaching. Combine that with lots of outdoor events and you get chapped lips. It pays to always have chapstick on hand and what could be better than velvet cupcake flavor?
These are all of my favorite fall things. I would love to hear what your favorite fall things are, please share them in the comment section below. If you want to read about my summer favorites, click here.
