5 Favorites of Fall {that begin with the letter “F”}

Hi, I’m Jules from Chic & Pink and incredibly flattered that the amazing Leeann asked me to guest post while she’s enjoying beautiful Nashville. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little bit jealous of her trip. I’m sure she’s having an amazing time getting to see her first official Fall (being that she’s a “California Girl” and all). There is no better way to celebrate her trip than to discuss some of my Fall besties, since it’s undoubtedly my favorite season of the year - from watching leaves change to magnificent colors of gold and red, feeling the crisp air and just the all around coziness the season brings.

Here’s why I love it so much:

Fashion
Leopard for Fall

The cooler temps mean it’s time to get out the cozy sweaters, stylish scarves and boots. I’m also really feeling leopard print this season and have an outfit similar to this one that I created on Polyvore. I can’t wait to wear it!

Freaky

I love a good scare and there are plenty of haunted houses, hayrides and spooky places to visit this time of year. This image is from Eastern State Penitentiary, one of my favorite places to go because it’s said to be truly haunted and the scary people they have jump out at you just heighten the already intense experience.

Fabulous

My absolute favorite thing to do in the Fall is to visit our local orchard. They have a pumpkin patch, petting zoo, pick your own apples, etc. It’s an annual tradition to go at least once during the season.

Food

Fall means comfort food and delicious warm dishes. It’s also the best time to get the slow cooker going to whip together some delicious and easy meals. This Taco Soup is one of my favorite recipes that I’ve made over the past year and perfect for Fall.

Football

As much as I moan and groan over my husband’s Fantasy Football obsession, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy our Sunday’s at home watching the big games.

What are some of your Fall favorites?

Fall football and food are my favorites for sure, and the fashion isn't bad either. I just wish it could be a tad milder outside - I'm such a pansy when it comes to cold.

Oh, I have such an obsession for haunted houses/castles/mansions, though I'm such a chicken, haha! In some odd way I still want to overnight in a haunted place some day.
