Fall is my favorite season; I love the changing of the leaves, the cool and crisp air, apple picking, morning frosts, pumpkins, lots of soup, cool nights and warm days. But wait… that was when I lived in Ohio. I’m experiencing my first fall in Santa Monica and it’s currently 90 degrees in the middle of October as I type. While I can still indulge in fall favorites, I can’t bundle up and have the same experience I’m used to. But that’s okay, have a list of fall essentials which are getting me in the autumn spirit! This year, I’m giving myself a California fall experience and that’s okay.
Getting in the spirit with warmer weather:
Pumpkin Spice Everything!
First of all, Pumpkin Spice everything. Pumpkin spice candles, coffee drinks, Oreos, candies, air fresheners, pie and other desserts. I’m really excited that Burt’s Bees limited edition Pumpkin Spice lip balm is now available at Target! You know how much I love Target and I just raved about the equestrian home decor collection online recently. This Burt’s Bees lip balm is a Target exclusive and you can’t shop for it anywhere else. The pumpkin spice lip balm won’t be around forever so hurry and get yours before it’s gone! It’s made with the same 100% natural ingredients of Burt’s Bees products with just a touch of pumpkin spice. It was in store last year and I didn’t get a chance to try it, I made sure to snag some up this time. Keep your lips hydrated this season and bring along the goodness of pumpkin spice everywhere you go. Available Only at Target.
Lots of Plaid.
I also like to remind myself it’s fall by including some plaid in my wardrobe. Whether it’s a scarf or a button down shirt, plaid makes me happy. You can wear a plaid scarf at night with a light shirt or plaid shirt dresses are perfect for during the day. Ps. plaid around the home is great too; pillows, throws and/or blankets can make any place feel cozy.
Floppy felt fall hats.
Fall hats are a must, even if you are wearing them with a long or short sleeve dress. Floppy felt hats are everywhere and they are a great autumn essential for any outfit. I have started to become a little bit of a hat hoarder lately and I like it. I feel a DIY post on hat storage coming on soon because I’m running out of room.
Cozy autumn scented candles.
And finally candles, I love to burn fall scents at night since the days are shorter. The spell of a delicious pumpkin, apple, cinnamon, or sugar cookie candle keeps me feeling happy. The nights do cool off to about 60 degrees so a little fire is nice. It’s amazing how a simple scent can change your mood or mindset. I like to keep a plaid scarf in or tied around my bag and you better believe I swapped out my regular Burt’s Bees lip balm for Pumpkin Spice. Have you tried Burt’s Bees Pumpkin Spice Lip Balm yet? Remember it’s at Target!
