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 reallyΒ 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 economyΒ 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™‚

Fall Obsessions- What I’m Most Excited For

Anyways, we’re t-minus 1 day until the official first day of Fall, so today I thought I’d share with you all some of the things I love most about my favorite season. I mean what’s not to love about it?! Be sure and join in on the fun in the comments and let me know what you love most about the upcoming season!

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!

  16. 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!

    Posted 9.22.16 Reply
    • Oh no! Hopefully you can find a new pair soon! πŸ™‚

  20. 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.

    Posted 9.21.16 Reply
    • That sounds so amazing Shani! I love doing that in the Fall months too!

  38. 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™‚

    Posted 9.21.16 Reply
    • 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™‚

    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.

    • Thanks! Blanket scarves are so soft and cozy and I swear they make any outfit instantly look cuter lol.
