5 Reasons to Get Excited for Fall (Plus, Outfit Week)

It's no secret that summer really isn't my season of choice. Humidity? No thank you. Scorching heat? I'll pass.

I'll take the season of crunchy leaves, apple cider and SEC football any day. (This obsession for fall also may or may not be the reason I wanted to get pregnant in early winter...I've always wanted a fall baby!)

Here are some reasons you should be excited for the upcoming autumnal months:

1. H&M
In case you live under a rock, I wanted to let you know that you can NOW SHOP ONLINE at H&M! After years and years of waiting for H&M to launch an online version of their mega-store, they finally have. And the fall merchandise couldn't be any more precious. I've already placed an order for a few post-baby bump items ; )

2. Bath & Body Works' Fall Scents
I ducked into B&BW yesterday after a doctor's appointment and picked up some of their fall handsoaps and candles. Let me tell you girls, these scents are so yummy! My early favorites are the Blackberry Spice, Scarlett Pumpkin and Honeycrisp Apple. To die for, I tell you.
3. The Annual Fall/Winter Scentsy Catalog
Word on the street is, Scentsy has some beautiful new warmers in store for us this fall. I saw a sneak peek of the new lampshade warmers via the Scentsy site's blog and was floored. They're so pretty! I'm excited for next month when the new catalog and items launch.

4. Pumpkin Spice Lattes
Does this really need an explanation? I think not. Yum. That is all.

5. Baby Caroline
Okay, okay...the excitement over this one really just pertains to Stephen and me, but we're pretty darn pumped to welcome Baby Girl in a couple months.

What are you most looking forward to this fall?


Sidenote: The rest of this week is filled with outfit photos. Here are some fun ones that you might want to tune in to:

Wednesday: Two punchy little frocks for late summer from Riffraff

Thursday: A very special Bumpdate post, featuring a hot little citron number from Maude Boutique

Friday (in addition to Confessional Fri.): The CUTEST pair of Razorback shorts from denim powerhouse, OCJ Apparel...stay tuned, college football fans!


  1. I love fall too - for most of the exact same reasons. Now I must get myself to B&BW for that Scarlett Pumpkin candle.

  2. Can't wait for fall!! It's my favorite season. And I love the pumpkin spice lattes too!

  3. I got all giddy when I saw the pumpkin spice latte...my Fall favorite!! And I almost got the Herloom Pear the other day!..smelled so good...but chose the cinnamon pumpkin instead...ooooh I am so ready for Fall.

  4. Fall is my favorite, and oh, the Pumpkin Spice Latte! Yum, yum, YUM. Too bad I live two hours from a Starbucks. I might just have to get the ground pumpkin spice and have my own little at-home version that isn't quite the same.

    Looking forward to outfit posts!

  5. It's so funny you posted 3 items from H&M that I was coveting, especially the green sweater!!!

    Those candles smell amazing. I am slowly burning up the last of my spring/summer candles in anticipation for the FALL scents. I can't wait.

    I am already, ready for the PUMPKIN everything explosion that is about to happen probably around mid September!

  6. Thanks for this post -- I can't wait for fall either! Now I need to head to Bath & Body Works for those yummy candles!! :)

  7. Wait a minute, is it already time for Pumpkin Spice Lattes? Wow! I'm so excited!

  8. In order of importance - my first grandchild, who is due right about the same time as Miss C; SEC football - the Vols first game is in 24 days (squeal); fall candles and decorations; great camping weather. Come on FALL!

  9. H&M online? I am in trouble...

  10. I am so with you... the clothes, leaves, scarves, boots, apple cider drinks and oktoberfest beer are my favorite parts of Fall but like you this year I have a special reason to be excited!! :) My wedding day on September 28th! Soooo excited!

    ps, also very excited to see your baby girl this Fall! :)


What'cha got?
