Every new season I always end up thinking about the things I am excited for, and I have to say Fall is one of my favorites! It is probably because here in Calgary it comes and goes so quickly, we don't get much of one. Even though the cold is coming I know there are a few things I always look forward to when we get those first crisp Fall mornings!
Breaking out your favorite cozy sweater. There is nothing better than drowning in a nice big cozy knit when the weather turns chilly – I passed this one from Aritzia up last year and that won’t be happening again! I like to pair my sweaters with a skinny denim and bootie or loafer or trouser and heel! I also love a good crew neck sweater for those lazy Sundays!

Hot drinks! I am definitely a black coffee LOVER, but I do like to mix it up sometimes – my favorite drink to make from home is a vanilla chai and it is super simple. ½ Chai Latte mix such as Oregon Chai (my personal fav) or Tazo Chai from Starbucks, ½ unsweetened Vanilla Almond milk, heat up in the stove or with a steamer, and Voila!
Candles. This has to be on EVERYONE's favorite fall things list… Obviously the best place to get them is Bath and Body works. I LOVE the selection, they seem to last forever, and they always have some sort of deal when they release new lines! This year they have some gorgeous marble jars! I die! So pretty! My favorite scent is the Black Pepper and Bergamot.
Boots. It is hard for me to wear booties in the summer as my feet get so hot so I am always excited to break out the booties come fall! This year I am looking for a sleek, classic black pair that I can dress up, or down. I am really into this pair from Aldo!

Obviously a big theme for fall is staying warm and cozy with these cooler days – a nice wool throw can help with that! I have spotted a few nice ones from my favorite home store in Calgary – Kit Interior Objects. How nice are these!

Fall makeup! I love the switch to the darker shades, especially in the lipstick game. MAC ‘Stone’, MAC ‘Verve’, and MAC, ‘Plum’ are some of my fall picks!
What do you get excited for when Fall rolls around?!
