Getting back to work after a long holiday weekend is never easy. After reviewing my calendar for the rest of the year this morning I was surprised to realize that it is quickly becoming completely booked up. No matter how many plans and appointments I have to fit into my schedule in the upcoming months I am determined to make time to enjoy the rest of the year especially since we are heading into my favorite time of the year.
Over the weekend I noticed that there are a few leaves that are already beginning to change color and I am looking forward to a drop in temperatures at the end of the week. I recently baked carrot cake and oatmeal bars and soon I plan to whip up a batch of my famous pumpkin whoopie pies. Plus, Jessica and I have been making plans for Halloween costumes and our Halloween party. To say that I am ready for fall would be an understatement.
I have also been doing some shopping in anticipation of cooler weather. I have said it on here before but it still holds true: fall fashion is my favorite. I will take cable knit sweaters over shorts and boots over sandals any day. I just purchased a midi skirt similar to this one that I cannot wait to arrive so I can start wearing it (the pleats are so feminine). Last year I realized how much I love ankle boots like these and they quickly became my most worn shoes in the fall and winter. Currently, however, I am obsessed with these smoking slippers and want to own them in every color.
Have you made any purchases for fall?
