Fall Indulgences, Decorating & My Loves



Well, Sunday is the first real day that it's felt cooler here in the Florida Panhandle...a little like Fall. It's was actually in the 60's, so I'm feeling all Fall ready! It could be because it was rainy and windy, but I'll take it! I have to admit, I'm all ready for my Fall indulgences. What's your Fall indulgence? I mean, let's be honest, when the weather gets all cool and crisp, I just love to hunker down and cozy up. That means instead of just brewing my coffee by the cup with my Keurig, I brew a whole pot and lounge around and drink it.  That's just something I enjoy doing when it gets cool.  I'll drink cup after cup! I really love just being in the moment and taking time to enjoy everything.

To me, that means taking time in the morning to eat a healthy breakfast and enjoy, really enjoy, my coffee...not just chug it down as I'm putting on my makeup.  I even sometimes pull out the pretty silver and daily china (which I don't use daily) and just sit at my nice dining table and enjoy! It just makes the time more special. I've linked some similar pieces below.

How to Transition Your Black Outfits from Summer to Fall & Ginger's Blog Linkup

I had a special request this week via Facebook from one of my great followers. She wanted me to give some ideas of how to transition your all black outfits from Summer to Fall. We are having an especially drawn out hot flash at this point, especially here in the South, so I thought that was a great idea for a blog post.

How to Jazz Up Your Basic Black Wardrobe for Fall/Winter & Blog Linkup

I don't know about you guys, but for Fall/Winter I always feel like if I have great black basics in my wardrobe, everything else is on point. Let's face it, you can take a great pair of black pants and a black cashmere turtleneck and layer almost anything over it to achieve a great look.  I can't lie, I buy four or five of the same black cashmere sweaters (I buy crew neck and turtleneck), and they are worn on repeat during the Fall/Winter months. I love light weight cashmere because it will basically adapt to weather. If it's really cold, it keeps you warm, but, on the other hand, you won't burn up if it's just chilly out.

I'm a fan of all black. I love it...maybe it's the way contrasts with my pale skin or the way it sets off my red hair...I don't know...I just know I LOVE IT! 😍 However, at times, all black needs a little jazzing up. So, I like to add a contrasting jacket or boots with special detail, like these black boots with silver detail. To set a contrasting tone, I also like to wear tannish brown or burgundy boots with black.
