Falling into Fall

Good Morning all,
I love fall personally. It's one of my favorite seasons. The Temperature tends to not be so extreme, and is often just right, how I like it....in the mid-70's. And around here in Kansas City, you might want to soak up all the nice weather while you can, because it usually doesn't stay that way for long!

Fall or Autumn officially started on the 23rd according to my calendar, even through cooler temps have snuck up way before then. People are beginning to dress a bit warmer, and while doing some minor shopping, I noticed stores are now packed with coats, sweaters and some even have out flannel Pajama's and all the Halloween stuff has been out since the beginning of September at some stores.

In Fall, is such a good time for me. I reminisce by visiting my old high school football games, dancing to the tunes of the band that I used to play in always brings a smile to my face. It's also a good time to get out and walk, and just be. I love the lovely colors of fall also, the leaves falling and colors changing. I know with my Missy (my new dog) and I are getting a lot of exercise these days, going outside for walks is so relaxing in the morning and especially after a days work.

Gotta love season change because it means...Shopping!

I'm definitely not thrilled about the colder weather to come this Winter. But, to get prepared I've already did some rearranging in my closet. Pushing the summer shirts to the back and bringing the long sleeves and sweaters to the front and pulling out those knee high boots I bought. I hate this task, but it has to be done. I've even began to start changing my hair regimen since I'm natural. Can't really wake up and do a wash in go in 50 degree weather! LOL

How do you prepare for Fall? Did it sneak up on you, like it did me?

  1. New boots and new jumpers are my favourite way to prepare for autumn :) I'd like a new coat too, but that'll be far too pricey this year!! X

  2. Yessss!!!! I need a new coat too! The pea coat I have from 2 years ago is looking a bit rough. I need some more skinny jeans and sweaters also.

    Thanks for reading!

  3. Fall is my favorite season! The colors are awesome, the temperatures just right, THE FASHION is on point! It's the time of the where I can wear clothes that are equally comfy and chic. Sweaters and boots here I come!!! ;0)

  4. Even though Spring is my favorite season, I'm excited about Fall. I get to bring out my wine, plum, and berry colored lippies! I'm also excited about breaking the age old rule of wearing white lol.

  5. Hey Jazz and Miss Dre!!

    I'm excited about the fashion also. It seems like every season though I'm picking up new items to add to my wardrobe.

  6. I am the same way!

  8. I love the Fall for the shopping (as you mentioned, lol). I also like that it means so many holidays are on their way! Days off, good food, time with my fam -- all great in my book.
