Well, it's official. It is indeed fall around here. Today is our first rain drizzling, cool crisp air day since fall officially rolled in on Monday. I have to say that I love it. Earlier this month I was looking forward to fall weather, just not quite sure I was ready for it so soon. But I think that our beach vacation came at the perfect time! Lots of sun, beach, swimming, tank tops & late nights... a full blown summer vacation. And now that we are home, I'm definitely loving fall. Although it was extremely hard to get out of bed this morning. I just wanted to stay underneath the covers all day long listening to the rain.... ahhhhh.

But of course, I couldn't and I didn't. Now that I'm out & about I am reminded of the many reasons why fall is my favorite season...

01. the beautiful changing colors of the leaves.
02. coffee. {not that I don't enjoy this every season, but it has a special warmth in the fall}
03. my favorite gold canyon candle, cobbler on the porch.
04. cool, crisp air that fills your house in the morning.
05. back to school shopping.
06. tv shows coming back.
07. everything about halloween.
08. layers and light sweaters.
09. football games.
10. crockpot recipes.
11. making leaf piles.

So much that I love about fall. I am particularly fond of my fall-appropriate apparel choice that I made this morning... very much intended for the crisp air and drizzling raindrops outside and it looked cute to boot. Nothing really out of the ordinary, but it just worked really well today. I would take a picture for you, but day is pretty hectic, so you're going to have to live with my descriptions... my simply vera dark purple lightweight cardigan worn over a white eyelet top-- wearing the cardigan unbuttoned with a skinny, braided brown belt on top around my waist, with dark trouser jeans, brown menswear-style mary janes and my fabulous nine west bag. Imagine my excitement when I got to work and ran quickly through my blogroll- only to see What I Wore's ingenious style sporting a very similar ensemble today!

Same purple cardigan, similar white shirt, same brown belt! Not everything exactly the same-- she's sporting a skirt & leggings and I'm in trouser jeans- but still. I feel so chic. :) I think I'm even more ready for fall now. And by the way, if you haven't seen her fabulous blog yet, What I Wore {found courtesy of bryn} you need to. She has an incredible style, a cheap budget, and a very creative eye. I love it!
