When is it okay to Decorate & Dress for FALL?

When is it okay to Decorate & Dress for FALL?

It's almost FALL Y’all!
Even though Fall does not technically start until September 23, I am itching to add some spice to the house and my wardrobe! 
 The only problem with the Fall transition is… we live in the South, where it feels like I am sitting front row to the SUN & Humidity!
Fall Is calling my name everywhere from: Hobby lobby, TJ Maxx, Target, and of course waiting patiently on the pumpkin spice to return to all my favorite coffee places. It seems like people begin to decorate for EVERY season & holiday earlier every year, so why not start in August for FALL.


Here are some Easy ways to incorporate fall into your home without going Full blown Halloween…

  • Candles, this one is just a given- I can literally smell every bath and body works scent right now, like the delish Pumpkin Bonfire 3-Wick Candle | Bath & Body Works (bathandbodyworks.com) Its a cheap & quick way to instantly make you feel like you are in the season even though you are sweating bullets.
  • Wreaths and floral arrangements are a simple way to add color to your home by using the browns, burnt oranges and dark reds to trick your mind into thinking it’s the cooler months.
  • Pumpkins (not jack o lanterns) are a great decorating piece both inside and outside your home. The Fall colored pumpkins Pottery Barn has are perfection and bring the whole Fall feel together Velvet Pumpkin Shaped Pillow | Pottery Barn


 Fall staples to add to your wardrobe that are still practical for warm weather…

- Clothes- A pair of Cut off shorts, tank top in your fav fall color (Burgandy, nude, hunter green) and of course a flannel tied around the waist or worn over as layers.

- Shoes are simple- classic white sneakers, Birkenstocks Arizona Birkibuc Mocha | BIRKENSTOCK , or tan booties paired with your fav shorts, jeans and fall printed skirts

-Accessories- keep it simple and neutral in the beginning months. Change your bright colored purse for the brown leather bag, gold jewelry instead of silver and of course adding a Headband, Shades of Fall Leopard | Bay Bands (baybandsfl.com)  to your outfit can instantly change the whole look to Fall.


No matter when you choose to decorate or trade in the pastel colors for Fall, just remember the most important thing. Do what makes YOU happy! That’s what makes it so special.
