It’s a shame that autumn is so fickle and fleeting, because it just might be my favorite time of year. There’s something really spectacular about sweater and boot weather – the kind that doesn’t yet require a coat or a heavy scarf. I’d rather stack on the accessories than swathe myself in bulky layers. I’m actually pretty fond of layering, too, just not in the “do it or you’ll freeze to death” kind of way. Fossil sent me this gorgeous watch just in the nick of time (pun completely intended), and I took the opportunity to stack my arm with all of the accessories that will soon be hidden beneath my myriad sleeves. The weather has been back and forth, lately, so I’m not giving up on fall, just yet – but I am preparing myself for the cold, cold winter. I’m not big on bone chilling winds, but give me a hot cocoa and some festive lights and I’ll be just fine.

p.s. Happy 18th birthday, Tessa Marie! I can’t believe you’re an adult, now – where did the time go? (and now I’m tearing up)
