Ahhh, fall is finally here in the TX panhandle (well for now)! Call me basic- I don’t care! Autumn is my favorite season. I couldn’t be more excited, I mean pumpkins, Halloween, sweaters, boots, THE WEATHER. Just give me all the fall.

Love everything about the fall! Sharing some of my fall favorites!

Fall inspirations
I just had to create a mood board for this season because I love it so much!

The only thing I don’t like is that the fall season is too short. It’s like we have 5 months of summer 5 1/2 months of winter, 1 month of spring and 1/2 a month of fall (okay, that’s exaggerated, but it feels that short).

Enough gabbing.

Knit sweaters and cardigans

    While I live in San Diego where fall foliage is next to non-existent, I was excited to finally put away my summer clothes to bring out my fall pieces. I really didn’t need more, but I couldn’t resist shopping for new pieces! I recently got new flannel (similar to the one you linked here) and two new booties!

    • Haha my cousins live in SD also and when they came to visit they were shocked at how cold and windy it was here.
