How We: Do Fall Edition

So....I was just starting to feel in the fall mood this past weekend...yesterday I kept thinking I need to do a fall post soon...and then I remembered it was time for Erika and Shay's fun linkup so perfect timing!  Linking up with them HERE

and I am also linking up with Emily and her Crew for Fall Fashion Faves HERE

Ok I guess I am in the spirit so here goes nothing ;)

Fall Decor

My favorite thing about our fall decor are the planters on our front steps.  I originally go the idea on Pinterest (where else) and have been doing this since the first Fall we moved into our home (so 7 years).  I put large pumpkins in them and then surround them with white hydrangeas and greenery.  They look even more festive when the hydrangeas dry out a bit.  We also put extra pumpkins and mums on the steps around them

I also add pumpkins, a purple cabbage and a festive bow to our mailbox along with a cornstalk...I think it screams "Welcome Fall"...I know just go with it

Inside, it is all about the Yankee Candles of the season- Spiced Pumpkin, Sugared Pumpkin, and Pumpkin Marshmallow...Just want to sink into a blanket and smell these forever

Then in early October, I add the Halloween decorations....we all need a little spookiness.  Last year's edition was "The Window Tapper" and man does that scare everyone (especially Eva and me!) :) 

Fall Fashion

 So I have said it once and I will say it always- fall is the best season for fashion- do you agree?  Outside of not being Lilly's best season, I love the accessories and layers that the season brings.


Camo jackets and vests

Leopard anything...especially ballet flats


Fall Food

Oh and there is nothing like a warm, homemade meal on a cold fall night.  Am I right?  Some of our favorite fall recipes include

Autumn Chicken and Squash Risotto

Pumpkin and Sausage Ravioli

Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup

 In addition to all of these fall festivity must haves, we partake in various pumpkin festivals and spookiness but I will save that for another upcoming post!

How about you?  How do you do Fall?

That scarf is so pretty and of course you have to have plaid in the fall! Love that you added the purple cabbage to your mailbox area - such a fun touch!
