What I Love About Fall

the best things about fall
Image Via (great iPhone background!)

Fall is my favorite season. I love the temperatures and the fact that during the fall in Pittsburgh, it seems to be sunnier more often. But besides the weather, there are so many other reasons that my love for fall runs deep!

Speaking of the sun, it has been very absent lately- we have had SO much rain and the flooding is crazy here! All of the rain made the temperatures dip and it has actually been cold. So I've been feeling extra fall-ish this week! I feel like it's 'basic' to love fall, so I started to make a list of all of the reasons that fall makes me truly happy! Basic or not!
Steelers Games
Tailgating 
Plaids and Tartans
NOT Sweating but NOT freezing
Barbour Jackets
Cashmere Sweaters
Keeneland
Leaves Changing Color
Children and Pets in Halloween costumes (SO cute)
Fall Shows are back like This Is Us
Pumpkin Beer. Not really a beer drinker but I love the cinnamon sugar rim!
Fires (outdoors, indoors, love 'em all!)
Fall Scented Candles
Cozy Blankets
Hot Coffee
Pumpkin Patches
Scarves
Darker Polish colors (my favorite is OPI I've Got the Blues for Red)
Alllll of the Halloween Candy (my fave is kitkats)

Cicadas Humming

Warm Apple Pie a la mode
The smell of a bonfire

The excitement leading up to the holiday season

It’s always exciting to pull out the L.L.Bean wicked good slippers for the first time of the season!

Fall is my favorite, too! I'm always so glad when it's cool enough to wear sweaters and scarves--it usually takes a while in Alabama to get cool enough but I'm always excited when it does!

This just got me even more excited for fall!! I'm a summer girl through and through, but the gloomy, cooler weather we've been having in the mid-Atlantic this week has me embracing the transition!

Honestly I wear my Wicked Good slippers all year round, haha! I can't get enough of them.

I LOVE fall (for all the typical reasons and cliches- but I don't care - haha). It's been my favorite season for as long as I can remember. We have an incredibly fun festival during October in my hometown (not far from Pittsburgh) and it is one of the highlights of the season for me! I usually start the countdown in early September :)

Love that Keeneland made this list! Are you going this fall?

I swear I start planning my Keeneland outfits in July.

Love this list!!! Reading this definitely makes me more excited for fall!
Laughed out loud from the not sweating but not freezing comment. I can totally relate to that!
