A Bajillion Reasons I am Pumped for Fall

      'Tis the season for Pinterest to be overflowing with every pumpkin spice recipe you can imagine and our Instagram feeds to be chock full of fall outfits! I present to you... A Bajillion Reasons I am pumped for fall!!    
(Ok, so, there aren't really a bajillion reasons. I mean, I might have a bajillion reasons in my head but that would take super long to type and you would probably get really bored. So let's just stick with top 10.)
Number One- Layers, layers, layers!
The first reason I am excited about fall is that I will finally be able to layer my clothing. Oxfords, sweaters, vests, cozy tees- eek!

Number Two- Pumpkin spice everything.
Pumpkin spice donuts, lattes, pies, cakes... anything your heart desires. Below are links to my fave pumpkin recipes. As you can tell, I'm a long time fan of Sally's Baking Addiction.

Number Three- Summer sales
Almost as good as fall lines coming out (#4), the summer pieces I have been eyeing can go for a great price. For example, I recently purchased the Lilly Pulitzer Eliza Dress in "Jellies be Jammin" for 50% off.


Number Four- Fall lines
There are fewer things as fabulous as J Crew having new arrivals. I don't know about you- but seeing fall clothes come into stores makes me super happy. However, I think that coming out with fall things before summer is over should be illegal.

Number Five- Friday Night Football Games
Bundling up for chilly football games with your friends, and sometimes actually watching the game, too :-)
Number Six- Fall Colors!
Oh how I've waited to wear navy and maroon. It might still be 80 degrees on some days, but I can wear fall colors! Below is New York Fashion Week's hot colors for fall.

Number Seven- Kate Spade x Gap Kids
From the moment they announced it on Instagram, I've been looking forward to the Gap Kids x Kate Spade collaboration launching in November. It is perfect for small people like me because their sizes can go up to size 16 which is basically a women's 0/2.

Number Eight- Fall Foods
My favorite fruit is a pomegranate and one of my favorite vegetables is squash, so you can see why fall is a yummy time for me. Never tried a pomegranate? That is going to need to change. Don't know how to open one? See how I do it in the infographic below! Source: Google Images (ps just look at the pictures because it's in another language)

Number Nine- Undeniable launch!
EXCITING NEWS! Recently, I have been asked to write for Undeniable, an online magazine that is super awesome. You can see the site and some previews here, and past issues over here, but you can catch me in the November issue going up on the site! I am so pumped, it is coming together to be oh-so-chic!

Number Ten- Costumes, candy, cute little kiddos...
HALLOWEEN! Every kid's (and most teens) favorite part of fall. Below are my absolute favorite costumes that I found on Pinterest (where else?).


The cuteness level is unreal.
