how to fall for fall

i've been loving the cooler weather that's greeted me a few mornings this past week.  with a subtle chill in the air, i'm totally feeling fall.  fall is my favorite season - made all the sweeter this year by our upcoming wedding in just TWO months!

so, with fall weather on the brain, here's a little "recipe" i cooked up to get you falling for fall, too.

drink this - something warm.  i personally love spicy, fallish brews like orange spice or chai tea.  add a teaspoon of sugar and a touch of cream (if you're doing chai).  remember: citrus-based teas can curdle milk - it doesn't taste bad but looks kinda gross.

eat this - apples.  no other fruit says fall quite like a crisp apple.  i can't wait until the orchards open for apple-picking.  craig and i got a little over-zealous a few falls ago and were eating apple-everything for weeks!

do this - go for a walk.  one of my favorite things to do when the weather gets a bit cooler is to pull on a comfy sweater and go for a walk with craig and olive.  (with the risk of sounding like a creeper, i especially like going for walks in the early evening when it's getting dark, because you can peek into the lovely glow that emanates from the houses.)

me sporting my t-shirt necklace
wear this - scarves.  i'm a sucker for a good scarf, pashmina or t-shirt necklace (learn how to make your very own t-shirt necklace in just 15 minutes {here}).  i <3 anything that makes me feel warm and cozy.  plus, they are a super simple way to jazz up your outfit - and considering my go-to is often yoga pants, a fun accessory can be the perfect thing to complete it!

well, mavens...whether you adore fall or are dreading the end of warm weather, i hope this little list has you (at least a little bit) excited and looking forward to fallish fun!
