Fall into Autumn

Fall is my favorite season by far! I love the sweather weather, the oranges, yellows and reds, the cooler temperatures to calm down the sweltering heat of NC summers, everything pumpkin-flavored -- and I enjoy it even more this year since fall isn't summoning me back to school!!

A few of my Fall favs:

NC Mountains -- preferably Boone, Wilksboro, Brevard.
Yes it really looks just like this on the Blue Ridge Parkway. My mom and I make a tradition of going every fall, and we're going next week -- to shop the mom and pop places, pack all my flannel, pick Honey Crisp apples, and ooh and ahh over the leaves.

pumpkins, gourds, and mums -- there's something so beautiful about them, especially the white ones!! and I plan on incorporating them in my future wedding.

Disney Princess pumpkin carving kit at Target?!! You best believe my cousin and I are carving these ASAP! The only problem is narrowing down which one to do! Even at 23, I'm still a sucker for Disney -- I have the multiple socks and old Disney cassettes that I bust out on my days off, to prove it.
The Keurig Mini!! What's sad is that I broke down and got the Fall Sampler -- which has ALL of my favorite things -- Pumpkin spice, hot apple cider, hot chocolate, and cappuccino in ONE big pack, BEFORE I ever went back to get the actual machine haha. My mom bought it for me for Christmas, and I felt that the bigger ones were too bulky -- the mini is the perfect size. It also does cold drinks like sweet tea, the bottom is removable incase your cup is bigger, and there are little filters you can put in called K cups, so you can put your regular coffee brew in there instead.

Flannel! It's so versatile and simple, yet so cozy and comfortable. You just throw it on and your outfit is done. No need for jewelry or anything else over the top. Loveee.

Flat ankle boots! (with skinny jeans and a sweater = comfort city!) I always wear flats because I hate heels, and I'm currently on the search for the perfect black boots. I found some amazing brown ones, at Target no less!

What are you favorite fall things?!
