My Favorite Things about Fall.

Fall or Autumn is by far my most favorite season ever. Growing up in Michigan I appreciated it even more. It is seriously gorgeous there this time of the year and you can find leaves in any colors you can make up names for. I am serious. It is the crispness in the air, the little chill you get from the wind and yes even the sound of the rain that combined with the falling of the leaves and the undressing of the trees, makes nature just the most beautiful thing, during the Fall season. Today I am joining Lana and the ladies from Lifestyle Sistas to talk about my 5 Favorite Things about Fall.

1} Fall Styles and Fall Fashions (this is mostly a Style blog after all). This is a no-brainer. One of my most favorite things about Fall is the way we dress. Bring on the layers, the boots and the scarves. This Fall there are 5 things I am looking forward to be wearing: Plaid, Leather, Booties + Oxford Shoes, the colors Burgundy + Gray, and last but not least Skinny Jeans.  I recently added some of these items I am craving for this Season and cannot wait to show them to you ladies, soon.

Below, I put together a Polyvore set where I styled a Plaid Shirt 2 ways - one is dressier, the other one casual but put-together. I'd wear both outfits head to toe. I do love Plaid this time of the year. but this Fall I am especially drawn to Dark-Colored Plaid and Tartan Shirts.

2} Hot Chocolate and Hot Tea. As much as I am a tea drinker, I appreciate a good blend of tea (hot tea) even more during Fall. Black tea, Chinese or Asian blends are my favorite. They are rich in taste and smell. And I almost always add lemon, sometimes even a tea spoon of honey. And hot chocolate is perfect for a chilly, rainy day, what can I say.

3} Fall TV. This Summer and early Fall I started watching some shows (well 2) and got caught up on both "Orange is the New Black" and "Switched at Birth". They are both excellent shows by the way. I recently just finished "Switched" and I am up to checking out a couple of new TV Shows that sound interesting.  Besides the new American Shows, I will try to follow the new "Voice of Albania" which just started this weekend. I don't have time for more than 2-3 shows at once so we'll see. Any TV Shows (new or old) that you recommend?

4} Decorating. I plan on doing a little Fall decorating around my home. I don't have a lot of Fall things (we have only lived here for 2.5 years) but I will put up a few. And I really want to DIY a Fall wreath as well.

5} Chestnuts. I live in a country known for their amazing chestnuts that come out this time of the year. I love eating them roasted or boiled till they are all mushy, slightly sweet and delicious. I also came up with my own chestnut soup recipe so I will be making that again. And my mother-in-law also does Chicken stuffed with Chestnuts which is delicious.
