fall frenzy.

fall is by far my favorite season... i look forward to that moment each year when i first feel a brisk crispness in the air, inviting me to pull my sweaters out of storage.

other things i look forward to:

1. incorporating this food into my diet-

oatmeal, smoothies*, ravioli, bread, cookies... i could go on and on.  it's a superfood so don't be shy!

2. buying new sweaters-

Slouched Keyhole Sweater

i just received this purchase and i love the unique back details. 

3. impending holidays!  i look forward to thanksgiving and christmas all year: spending time with my family and eating tasty food by a fire... it doesn't get much better.

4. riding boots.  i find myself wearing them everyday.  with leggings and a cozy sweater dress, it's the perfect fall ensemble.

if price was no object, these loeffler randall boots would live on my feet:

5. holiday parties.  i love an excuse to get gussied up and wear sequins!

what's your favorite fall festivity?

*i drank a pumpkin smoothie post-run this morning and it was absolutely delicious!
