Fall Cravings

As much as I like to  hold onto my flip flops until there is a foot of snow, one of the great things about the cooler weather is changing up the wardrobe. Sweaters, boots, and mittens oh my! My husband and I just bought a new house and we’re moving in a week, this also makes me want to change up my style – I’ve got fall cravings for clothes, decor and food! These are a few of my favourite things!

Loving this festive Fairisle sweat from ASOS.

I’ve always been an UGGS girl for these ridiculous winters we get here, but this year I’m going for these Sorels. I think they will be really cute with leggings and skinny jeans.

Speaking of jeans I also want to get a new pair of dark denim skinnies for the winter. The last couple pairs I bought seem to stretch out badly after one wear so I think I might try to go a size down this time and suffer with too tight jeans for the first few hours and then hopefully they’ll end up being perfect. I’ve got my eye on these J Brand skinnies, I have never owned a pair of J Brand jeans, I usually go for Hudsons or True Religions, and J Brand ships to Canada now so I’m excited for them.

My girlfriend Lindsy is doing a Stella and Dot party this month so I am looking for something that would be good for a Christmas party, maybe with a black dress. Right now my favourites are this Oslo necklace…

and this Kahlo bracelet.

I always buy a lot of dresses in the spring and summer because of all the great colours and prints, but most don’t translate to fall and winter even with tights. So in winter I prefer to wear a lot of sweater dresses which are so cozy. Right now I’m into this Free People dress that I think would be really cute with black tights and booties.

And I love this one for snuggling.

Of course Fall brings out so many pairs of glorious boots! I feel that I need a new short pair like these little cutes from Aldo,

and a tall pair, equestrian style, from Michael Kors that I’m lusting over.

Anyone who knows me knows I am handbag crazy so every season I’m yearning for a new one. Right now I am all over this Celine. I know this style has been out for a while but the caramel colour is new and the bag keeps appearing in my dreams! So gorgeous.

I know its like blasphemy and everyone thinks I’m crazy but I don’t really like pumpkin spice lattes. They’re soooo sweet! Even when I order it 1/2 sweet I still can’t take it. But that doesn’t mean I don’t want to do tons of pumpkin baking. In the next month I want to try black bean pumpkin soup, pumpkin spice mini donuts, pumpkin french toast bake and I want to try oreo pumpkin puppy chow for our Halloween Housewarming Party because it’s black and orange. I made a maple pear pie for one of our thanksgiving dinners which was a hit with my family but I wasn’t in love. I also made pumpkin chocolate chip cookies that I took to work and they were gone pretty fast. My husband’s birthday is next week so I have to start brainstorming for his bday dinner, he is a steak and potatoes kind of guy so please let me know if you have any unique ideas. I’m going to bring out our wedding china for the first time to serve it with.

I know we are super Disney geeks but I am dying to go to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party at Disney World! They just do such a good job during the holidays there and all the pictures I’ve seen online it looks so fun and festive! They have so many fun events and amazing decor. I keep dropping hints to my husband that we should go but it’s already October 14 so I don’t think it’s happening!
