Stuff I’m Into: Cozy Fall

I can’t believe October is right around the corner.¬† This is my absolute favorite time of the year. (Sorry if I’ve said that 100 times already. ūüôā ) ¬†I thought I’d share with you some ways that I’m getting all cozied up for the season.


Cashmere and Suede. ¬†I finally splurged and treated myself to¬†this Charter Club cashmere scarf!¬† This one can be used as a scarf or a shawl.¬† I’m pretty sure that I’ll be living in it this Fall and Winter.¬† I also love a classic pump, especially if it’s suede so these BCBGeneration pumps were a must have when I saw them.¬† They are so versatile.¬† Can you tell that I’m into the color gray?

Books and Blankets. ¬†I love snuggling up on the couch under a blanket with a good book.¬† On our Quebec City vacation, I read The Obsession by Nora Roberts and I loved it.¬† It’s a romance and mystery (my favorite combo).¬† I love her books but this one is one of my favorites.¬† The next book on my list to read is The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. ¬†Has anyone read it?

An Easy Outfit to Recreate for Fall. ¬†I’m all about cardigans and I just bought this boyfriend cardigan from Banana Republic¬†in gray (surprise, surprise). ¬†I need it in every color. ¬†It’s that good.¬† You can wear a cardi in SO many ways but my favorite is to pair it with jeans, a tank, and comfy pair of booties. ¬†It’s an easy and classy look that can be done with any budget.

Pumpkins and Pine Cones.  I keep the decor simple at home.  I have a bowl of cinnamon scented pine cones (that even came with obscenely large cinnamon sticks!) in our family room and a few mini pumpkins scattered around the kitchen and family room.  Of course no cozy room is complete without a candle or two.  I bought Leaves, Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin, Cranberry Woods, and Pumpkin Apple candle scents from Bath & Body Works.  I love, love, love them.

Have a happy Fall!  Ciao.
