Fall Obsessions- What I’m Most Excited For

Fall Obsessions- What I'm Most Excited For

Happy Wednesday Everyone! I’m currently amidst another crazy week at work, and we have a huge free event planned for this Saturday to help those in our community who have recently lost their jobs. I know I don’t ever really talk specifics about my work on here, but one of the reasons I love what I do so much is because I truly love helping those out there who are in need.

It is my heart’s desire to see our local economy grow and thrive, which is why I’m so excited for my new role in managing all marketing and grants for our agency. I’ve been working my tail off the past few weeks to try to get the word out so people will attend, so fingers crossed that we have a great turnout and the event is a success! πŸ™‚

Blanket scarves are always so cute and chic for fall- not to mention super cozy! I really love how it looks styled with a belt and paired with jeans or leggings and a tunic.

And who can forget the number one must-have for fall? Boots! The ones with the bows are simply darling, and I love how over-the-knee boots look paired with a cute skirt or jeans!

Linking up with  Wonderful Wednesday, What’s Happening WednesdayThursday Favorite Things, and Think Tank Thursday


    1. Thank-you! I keep wanting to break out the blanket scarves, but it’s still a little too warm! Looking forward to it though! πŸ™‚

  1. I’m seriously obsessed with riding boots and blanket scarves! I just bought a new scarf the other day. I loved my old riding boots sooo much. I seriously wore them all of the time. I wore them so much, they eventually broke last March. I’m in need of a new pair but I honestly have no idea where to start looking!

    1. Everyone I’ve talked to lately at work says they don’t like fall, but I’m like what’s not to love?! haha

  2. Those blanket scarves are so cozy! I need to buy at least 5. I also love wearing boots in the fall. I think something I’m excited about is going up in the mountains and crunching along in the leaves and then having a fire and roasting marshmallows and hot dogs.

  3. That’s awesome that your work is having a free event for the community! I am so excited for Fall. I still keep hoping that we get one here in TX. I would love to not be wearing shorts and flip flops at Christmas. I love blanket scarfs, boots, the food,etc when it comes to Fall.

  4. I can not wait for Halloween either! Love it! I wish we could wear scarves more, but here it is way too hot even in full blown autumn.

  5. Cozy scarves and boots are my favorites for fall as well! Fall is definitely my favorite season of the year! Pumpkins are my go to for fall decor! 5 of 7 decor pieces are pumpkins in my home this year!

  6. I hope your event goes really well this weekend!! It sounds like it will be really great! I’m excited to pull out my scarves, ankle booties and eat some caramel apple treats πŸ™‚ I just finished up writing out our Fall Bucket List so we can pack lots of fun into our days.

    1. Thank-you! I need to create one of those too! I’m hoping to start some new Fall traditions this year! πŸ™‚

  7. Love your fall list and your Halloween makeup ideas are really cute esp the deer! My favorites for fall are boots, plaid tops, pumpkin scented candles and Halloween for sure!

    1. Thank-you! I love breaking out the fall scented candles–it just warms the house up and makes it smell so good! πŸ™‚

  8. All of that food looks amazing! And I am so proud of how you did all of that make up yourself! You totally look like Rosie the Riveter…I had to do a double take!

  9. I love me some summer, but Fall is another favorite of mine (winter? you can go away). The fashion and weather are the absolute BEST, and there’s nothing better than warm-but-not-humid days and cool nights. Oh, and my birthday in October – that’s good, too πŸ™‚

    1. Haha, I like the winter if I’m off work, have absolutely nothing to do, and no reason to leave the house and I can just watch the beautiful snow fall and play in it with my boys, but then after a couple days I’m over it..lol and yes a fall birthday! πŸ™‚

  10. Your new role sounds fabulous!!! It always feels good to help others and local businesses in a community.

    I love fall and fall fashion is my favorite. Too bad it is still in the 90’s here and we wont be whipping out anything fall just yet. Those boots are just fabulous!!! Both pairs! I dont have a blanket scarf yet but I think I might get one this year.

  11. You’re face in all the make up/halloween looks – perfection! You can pull it all off!!!

    I bought blanket scarves for all the girls in my life one christmas & so mad I never got myself one!

    1. Aw thank-you!! & I’ve totally did that before, but sometimes you gotta treat yourself too! πŸ™‚ & Blanket scarves are soo cozy!

  12. You are so cute, Cara, I swear you should be a make up artist. Isn’t fall just the best? I cannot get enough of it I’m so scared it’s going to fast. I love all your obsessions and I echo them completely! That football pepperoni has been on my list to make for a long time, I think this is the season!

    1. Aw thanks Andrea! You sure know how to make someone’s day! There’s something about the Fall season..I just love it! Let me know if you make the pepperoni football, I want to give it a try too! πŸ™‚

  13. This post is so wonderful, Cara! It got me in the spirit for the season! I personally love blanket scarves, pumpkin desserts, fall decor and fall activities!

  14. All things that get me excited for Fall as well, especially boots and game day food! Best of luck with your event!

  15. I love all of your Halloween make-up…super cute! That football with the pepperoni looks like such a fun game day food. I love those boots with the ties in the back, and I NEED a blanket scarf. So cozy! Best of luck with your fundraising!

  16. Scarves in general are my current fall obsession and blanket scarves are next on my list. There are so many beautiful ones and I want to buy them all lol. That dress up makeup is cute especially the last one. I saw a costume at Walmart the other day that would be perfect with that Bambi makeup❀

  17. I love the blanket scarf and pumpkins too! I live in Dallas and it never really gets to be Fall like here until maybe January! Sometimes we skip Fall and winter and go right into Spring!

    1. It was a little cooler today, which was nice! And thank-you so much! It was a fun look to create last year! πŸ™‚

  18. I’m super sad that summer is ending, as it is my favorite season. However, I did smile at your mentioning of boots and game day food. It’s great to have football back and cheer on my Dallas Cowboys weekly. πŸ˜‰
