fall in love

Dresses: 1, 2, 3


Accessories: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

I LOVE FALL.  I can not emphasize this enough.  Once it's August, it's all I can think about.

Ever since I can remember, Fall has been the epitome of prime Kaylie time--after all, it's the beginning of the holiday season.  I feel like everything good starts happening in Fall:

A new school year (yes, I'm a nerd), Ted and my anniversary/his birthday, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, Valentine's Day, my birthday, Easter...

I realize this all spans over six months.  But you guys.  Those six months are the best.  Holidays are my greatest joy.  Decorating, making homemade gifts, baking, hosting parties.....

I LOVE IT ALL.

This summer I have already been making birthday gifts for the remaining birthdays of this year, planning out Christmas gifts, working on my Halloween costume, and using my Pinterest as an arsenal for seasonal treats and fashion inspiration.

I have a problem.  I recognize this.  Call me crazy, insane, Mrs. Claus.....  It's probably all true.

Holidays aside, one of my favorite things about the Fall is the change in weather.  In Arizona, Fall means cooler weather, even if it still means pumpkin ice cream is more suitable than a hot pumpkin spice latte.  See my ways for embracing a desert Fall here and here.

Since moving to Portland, I have come to see Fall in its full potential.  It's magical, and I can't wait to spend another Fall there.  Until then... I will be knitting, making mix CDs, and dreaming up layered outfits.  (Right now I am wearing my new boots... It's one in the morning.)

Are you crazy about Fall?

Honestly, I love the beginning of each new season. It's just so exciting to transtion: food, clothes, vibes.

I'm excited for fall, too, but it's usually a bit of a letdown for me, living in Texas and all. Someday I'm going to live somewhere that has all four seasons. Until then, I'll just have to take your advice for embracing a desert fall. And keep brainstorming Halloween costume ideas...

Autumn smells nice...
It's probably all of the fallen leaves, but there's something about the smell of crisp air.

Oh, and apples. I love apples.

Seriously, you do NOT need to tempt me with more ModCloth! I am already perusing that website multiple times a day. I am so excited for fall though. It has the best clothing options ever.
