Where do you live?
I live in the DFW area and we have had little tastes of cooler weather (by that I mean high 70’s) here and there, but it’s still generally hot here. Honestly, I’m dreading the winter this year. I was very cold last winter, and could never seem to warm up. Even in the house, which we keep around 68 degrees or so (unless the sun is shining on me, I’m cold when it’s under 70 degrees). I need to be better at layering, wearing socks (ugh) and keeping my neck wrapped (I actually just ordered this alpaca neck wrap in black by Beklina – how cute is that??!).
My fingers still get cold though, and I’m usually walking around with a hot cup of tea, coffee, or just water. In the winter, I feel old and frail and I dislike that feeling.
Do you prefer fall or spring?
I prefer spring, by just a little. I love season changes anyway (it’s that predictable change I can get behind…), but I like going from cold to warm better than from HOT to just a little cooler 😉
What are you looking forward to wearing again?
As much as I dread being cold, I do love my sweaters and I can’t wait to wear them again. I have a cashmere cardigan by Inhabit that’s about a decade old and still holding up nicely; it’s warm and comfy and I’ve already started wearing it a bit at home at night.
I like wearing long sleeve tees, sweatshirts (so excited to wear this organic cotton one by Rudy Jude soon – 35% off!!) and light sweaters.
I DON’T like wearing socks, but I think I should wear them more often, especially if I want to wear my Dansko clogs this winter. I’m ordering a few pair by Hansel from Basel to get me more excited LOL:
Have you bought anything new for the season?
DID YOU SEE THE WAIT TIMES DECREASED?? When REI has their member 20% off coupon I’m going to get a Patagonia pullover, and that will probably be it for “shopping.” I’ve bought and returned a lot of things recently, but I think I’m finally getting comfortable with what I’ve decided to keep and add, assuming all of the things fit.
What’s your favorite thing about fall?
Pumpkin!! LOL, just kidding. I mean, I love pumpkin flavors, but I’ve never been into pumpkin spice EVERYTHING and certainly not pumpkin spice lattes (I prefer chai, but don’t really drink lattes). I do love to make pumpkin pancakes, but I can do that in the middle of summer if I want to. I enjoy cooler mornings and evenings, sitting outside with tea, or a glass of wine and not suffocating from the heat. I love Thanksgiving and seeing family. Both my sister’s and my birthdays are in fall. When we lived in Atlanta I loved seeing the changing leaves. Here, they mostly just fall off the trees instead of changing color.
