FALL: a season to love

Fall is coming! I simply can't wait! Fall is my favorite season... and these are only a few reasons why...

Anthropologie's Fall Line.
I love Anthropologie all year long, but my love for Anthropologie grows in the cold seasons. Anthropologie just does fall and winter right.

(1.)  (2.)  (3.)


Butternut squash.
I was only introduced to the amazing butternut squash this last winter. Now I can't seem to get it off my mind and am looking forward to soups, muffins, and oven-roasted versions all fall long.



Layers.
A good fall outfit consists of at least 3 top layers, 2 bottom layers, and 2 or 3 feet layers... and about 5 accessory layers of course... oh, and we can't forget the 2 or more knit accessory layers. Yeah... I have no cold tolerance.



Wrapping up in grandma-made afghans.
Everyone in my family has a collection of grandma's afghans. There are big afghans, medium afghans, and my favorites- the lap afghans. They were always made of the most random color combinations and never quite matched my room, but I cherish every one and can't wait for a cold fall night that allows me to bundle up in 3 or 4 of them.



Boots, boots, and more boots.
Nearly all my feet wear during fall and winter are boots- boots with dresses, boots with jeans, boots with pjs (my Uggs... it gets cold in our house!)... I like to get a new pair of boots a year and my birthday is coming up, so it's time to go boot shopping!



5 more days....

Ugh.
SERIOUSLY, I want to LIVE in an Anthropologie store. I dream about it. Often.

And now I'm going to be dreaming about those last boots you pictured.
WHOA...

It sucks being a poor grad student.
:(

Thanks for the great post!

I'm right there with ya!
I'm obsessed with fall... for very similar reasons!

Also, anthropologie, Urban Outfitters, and Free People... all favorites.

Please don't show me such things that I cannot possibly afford! lol
