jumpstart monday: fall edition.


guys, it’s here! it’s fall! my favorite season is finally here!

in lieu of a quote, here are a few images that i love to get you motivated and inspired.




in all honesty though, what is better than fall? i love the crisp mornings, the palpable feeling of change in the air, and don’t even get me started on layering. i know spring is the season of new beginnings, but i always feel so inspired in the fall. because i love lists and love fall, here are some of the reasons fall is my favorite. 

# pumpkin spice lattes. duh. starbucks, the world thanks you for this treat.

# boots. boots & tights. boots & leggings. boots & skinny jeans. boots with the fur. you get the idea.

# turning off the A/C. letting that cool breeze in. 

# new tv. welcome back glee, modern family, the voice, and all the new, promising shows. 

# dozing off to the sounds of football. reminds me of fall in vermont when i was a kid. 

# baking. crank up that oven, it’s chilly out there! pumpkin cookies, pumpkin cupcakes, apple pie.

# bulky sweaters. (to mask all the baking i’ve been doing/consuming).

# deep moody nail polish. anything burgundy, plum, grey, brown. begone neon!

# back to school mentality: starting fresh, full of opportunity, ready to take on the world.

# fall foliage and back country roads.

# pumpkin carving, fall decor, and crunchy leaves.

just try and tell me you don’t agree.  

september has been lovely in dc, but frankly, i’m most excited for october and november, arguably my two favorite months of the year. this october i’m going to nantucket to visit my sister for almost FOUR whole days. i can’t wait to spend time with her and her family and i will absolutely relish being in my favorite place during my favorite season. two weeks after i get home, my lovely mom is coming to visit from florida! i am already brimming with ideas for us to do while she’s here and can’t wait to have her stay with us in our apartment. dc friends, any fun mom-daughter date ideas?  november is jesse’s birthday and a possible trip to nyc, and my favorite holiday of all time- thanksgiving, and hopefully a trip to chicago. hopefully these two months won’t fly by because i want to enjoy every single second.

do you have any exciting fall plans? have the most amazing week.
