This week's theme: 5 Favorite Things About Autumn {first day of Autumn is 9/23}

1) Crisp mornings - while this does make getting up in the morning harder, once I'm outside, the slight chill in the air helps to wake me up, and it's just so refreshing!

2) Leggings weather - as much as I love the summer and wearing dresses and shorts, I also love the option of not wearing real pants. Besides, there are so many cool-looking leggings out there these days, especially for the geek chic, it kind of bums me out when it's too hot to wear them! Mecha legs, Hamlet legs, I've missed you!


3) Chai lattes - let's be real, I drink these all the time, but they seem especially wonderful during the fall. It must be the cinnamon. (Also, I'm just excited to be drinking more hot drinks - hot cider, hot chocolate, hot coffee, horchata.)


4) Scarves - I love scarves as an accessory, and I've been wanting to up my scarf game this season. It'll be a while before it's cool enough to wear some of my heavier ones, but I have acquired a few lighter scarves that I can't wait to wear out!

5) Plaid/ chambray shirts - I just love plaid and chambray shirts, and it will finally be just cool enough to wear them. Plus, there's something so fall to me about these fabrics/patterns/textures. Maybe it's the neutral-ish palette and the layering capabilities...



Bonus - I would say the leaves changing colors, but that's not really a thing in Southern California, haha.

What are your 5 favorite things about autumn?

Crisp mornings are strangely refreshing. You're right - it is harder to get out of bed, but it's worth it for that breath of fresh air when you step out for the day.
