Happy Fall!

Without question, Fall is absolutely my FAVORITE season! Everything about it makes me OH, so happyyy...from big coozy sweaters, leather boots and the chance to drink a pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks...what could be better? 

Maybe it's the fact that Fall means we're just that much closer to CHRISTMAS (an entirely separate blog post will be dedicated to this special special holiday).  With fall comes the start of classes (um just experienced my last fall semester of's november and I'm still not over it yet), new school supplies, boots, sweaters and scarves (if you couldn't already tell I love scarves, see my post here about them), changing colors of the leaves, and the crisp chill in the morning that turns into the perfect jacket-optional weather.

I think Boston is the ideal place to enjoy Fall weather. The Charles River is absolutely gorgeous when the leaves change colors. Going for a run on the river in the mornings is one of my favorite activities. 

I found this photo on Google Images and it perfectly summarizes my favorite fall colors!

As I mentioned before, the Fall season is my absolute favorite season for fashion. I'm all about comfort so the fact that you can just wear leggings, jeans, or a skirt paired w/tights, big sweaters, boots and a scarf is ideal for me...

Two of my other favorite things about the Fall are Thanksgiving AND APPLE PICKING! Growing up in New York City, it was hard to do a ton of outdoorsy things very often but my parents made a tradition of going apple and pumpkin picking in the Hamptons every Columbus Day Weekend. I loved picking my own apples, drinking hot apple cider while snacking on a cider donut, getting myself lost in the corn maze on purpose just to scare my mom. The day was the epitome of my favorite season. I still try to go apple picking with my sorority every fall. This past October we went to Tougas Family Farm together and despite the fact that it was a little rainy it was still such a great time spent with my sisters! 

Another photo I came across the covers a few of my favorite fall items...

sweaters...scarves..pumpkin spice lattes..candles...what else could a girl want? AND purple nail polish...i die! I'm a big Essie fan- here a few of the other colors I've been sporting this fall: 

As I mentioned before Fall means this holiday is just around the corner: 

AND the fact that we're just that much closer to this...

what better way to ring in the holiday season than with Vineyard Vines
