Falling for Fall {Link Up With Us}

Morning, ladies! I am so excited for today's Falling into Fall linkup. It's no secret I'm a true summer girl, but since the Fall Equinox has passed, I am ready to embrace the beauty of fall. Please grab the button below and join in the fun with Katie and myself. We are looking forward to reading everyone's fall posts. #comelinkupwithus #youknowyouwantto

There are so many fun things I love about fall. Instead of one board with a few favorites, I chose to break mine out into groups. I mean come on, you know I love to talk or type, right?!

Summer fashion will always hold #1 in my heart, but fall is a very close second. I ADORE fall fashion, especially boots and booties. My closet desperately needs this white comfy sweater and red plaid shirt and I am beyond excited to pull out my blanket scarf and fur vest. Fall nail lines have some of the BEST colors,  the deep jewel tones make my heart [and nails] happy. Normally I'm a silver girl, but you'll see me rocking more gold once October rolls around, there's something about gold and fall hues that just go together in my mind.What are your fall fashion favorites?

Fall also means fun outdoor activities and the return of one of my favorite sports, football. I've been a Dallas Cowboys fan since I was five years old and I LOVE me some NFL football. Living in deadskins territory makes the football season much more interesting and I enjoy the banter with friends and foes throughout the season. Before I meant Le Husband, college football was kind of eh for me. After we met my Saturdays were ALLLL about college football, all dayyy eeeeerrrrry Saturday. And then, after we were married I became a Buckeye fan, because well, in laws ;)! I have to say, I'm a TRUE fan now, after our trip to the National Championship when the Buckeye's won [oh haaay, BOFF]. So now Saturdays mean OSU and that's okay by me :)! Even though I'm in 'the city' I love to take trips further west to enjoy fall festivals around the area - Corn maize, pumpkin patches, and apple picking, OH MY! Do you have any fall traditions?

Fall decor is fun, right? Fall scented candles truly are my second favorite [behind Christmas, obviously] because their scent just makes me feel cozy. I am a bit behind, but I've slowly started building my fall decor and would love to add a wreath,  these glitter pumpkins and these gorgeous lanterns to my collection. A fun fall pillow is a great way to make a statement, complimented by a super soft and cozy blanket of course. What are your favorite fall decorations?

Mmm, mmm, mmm, fall food, yes please. Gimme all the cornbread, chili, sliders and seven layer dip for football games. I also love any football themed dessert, especially during a tailgate or football get together. Cooler weather means it's time to bust out the crockpot for our favorite slow cooker meals and soups, yum, I'm hungry just thinking about dinners, haha. Ice coffee as become a favorite this year, but I am so excited for allll the hot cocoa, what is your favorite fall recipe?

Meghan @ Me as Meghan said...

I agree with everything you put on this list! A fall fashion favorite of mine are definitely booties...they are great because you can dress them down or up! I just got a pair of black suede booties, similar to the red ones in your collage and I cannot wait to wear them!
As far as decorations go, I do have a pumpkin-apple spice candle, and it has been making the apartment smell fantastic! I might go splurge at Target soon and pick up a few more fall decorations.
Thanks for hosting this linkup, I cant wait to read what everyone else has posted!
