I heart fall.

I've decided it's officially fall for three reasons: (1) it rained (proper) over the weekend and is still overcast today, (2) I've worn boots three days in a row now, and (3) I am perpetually craving Starbucks' hot apple cider.

Here are a few things that are making me positively giddy this time of year...

I recently discovered a beautiful park within walking distance of work, and I cannot tell you what it does for my day to enjoy a moment outdoors with a good playlist or book. My honey and I recently spent one Saturday laying in the park, listening to the wind blowing through the trees and marveling at the fiery hues of autumn slowly creeping into the foliage.

 Rich auburn locks, smoky eyes and elegant cool-weather accessories are the perfect look for October. (This photo makes me pine for long hair again.)

An inviting chair and cozy blanket make for the perfect thoughtful spot. Watch the rain fall out the window, re-read your favorite compositions (Catcher in the Rye is a fall must-read for me), or cozy up by a fire/space heater. Bonus points for a warm beverage in hand or a furry friend napping at your feet.

Year round I gaze at the giant shoe boxes perched atop my closet, just waiting for the time of year to roll around to sport the beauties nesting within. I have my staple pairs of boots for every occasion (casual with jeans, dressy for work, sassy with skirts, comfy with PJs, etc.), but I think my favorite is pairing some richly-colored heeled boots (like these, above) with tights, a cozy dress and a scarf.

My boyfriend makes the best warm beverage treats I've ever tasted. (Ear muffs, 'Bucks.) His cappuccinos are probably my favorite, and enjoying one in PJs on a rainy morning is pretty much my idea of perfection. A great beverage warms so much more than just the tummy.

Scarves are wonderful because they're essentially blankies that are sanctioned for all-day wear: at work, at home, wherever. I especially love neutral-hued textured pieces like the one pictured above. (This photo captures another delightful fall "accessory:" bangs. Long hair, I have not, but I am a proud member of the bangs brigade.)  

This photo feast brought to you by Pinterest. Yes, I did.

What are some of your fall favorites?
