Faking Fall

It's still about 80 degrees here. What the what? I have to pretend that it's October, which means I'll throw on a light cardigan or scarf if I'm lucky. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the sunshine and warmer weather most days, but when you're surrounded by catalogs and magazines filled with cozy layers and pumpkin recipes and hearty stews, you become a little bitter. In Texas, I used to crank up the AC to 65 degrees -- I guess it was my way of faking myself out. It worked! These days, that's just not happening. I rely on the trusty trade winds. They're lovely, but not enough to convince myself that a pot pie would be tasty when it's still so warm. I guess in Hawaii, cinnamon scented candles and a tartan button down paired with a skirt are just going to have to do. I figured the best way to get in the fall spirit is to fake it via One Fine Day. Although, my fur-ocious friends and I are still hoping we'll get to move somewhere next time with real seasons! A girl can dream. So here it is, my fictitious fall. Ready to play along?
What a delightful list!
Bundled Up / Boot Socks with Ruffles - Adorbs, aren't they? / Bean Duck Boots - I will own a pair some day!

Shrimp & Andouille Pot Pies / Spiced Cider Whoopie Pies / Ingredients for a Perfect Fall Fete 
Sequin Pillow / Cable Knit Throw / Pantone Mug / Harney & Sons Tea / Mrs. Meyer's Seasonal Candle / Caramel Apple Body Wash / Fresh Brown Sugar Lip Polish / Essie Carry On / Jeweled Cluster Headband / Bobbi Brown Holiday Classic To Go Palette / Madewell First Frost Cardi / Camp Socks / Mittens / Hunter Wellington Boots / Striped Scarf / Perfect Reva Flat

I don't know about you, but it suddenly feels a lot like fall around here. I'm glad we got to experience this season together! Is it nice and cool in your neck of the woods? What's on your fall to-do list?

P.S. Have a wonderful weekend.
Pin It!


  1. You're right! Fall is the best time of year. I have yet to sit down and really enjoy the season!

  2. Fall comes and goes in the south one day it's here the next day it's gone. I think (hope!) that it's here to stay but you're right, it's all about creating the experience and enjoying it!

    Happy weekend Ashley!

  3. Maybe you guys could be stationed at Whiteman... we have seasons here ;) Oh and I made pumpkin pancakes this week, delish. Especially topped with Nutella (I have a serious addiction going, can you tell?).
