Fancy Friday...The Leaves They Are A-Changin

You know the seasons are changing when you have to check the forecast every single day to know whether you need to wear flip flops and short sleeves or boots and a heavy sweater. Last weekend we went to a cookout and it was downright cold outside when the wind was blowing and the sun was behind the clouds.  

But the past few days have been the closet thing there is to perfection on earth.  Bright sun, blue skies, highs in the 70's, and the leaves are just beginning to change hues.  Yesterday I saw, for the first time this year, a Maple tree already glowing brilliant red. 

When I was younger I didn't appreciate fall and hardly noticed the splendor of God's handiwork that surrounded me.  I was all about the spring and summer months. But now that I'm middle aged and worried about things like skin cancer and wrinkles wiser and more appreciative of the simple things in life, fall is now my favorite.

Plus, I have a thing for boots...

Like this pair by Lucky Brand.  Most of my boots have a higher heel and sometimes you just need a pair that were made for walkin'.  I think these may be in the running...or the walking.  

Popcorn Diamond Poncho in spice heather
This cable knit poncho by Free People could be the spokesponcho for fall, couldn't it?  You know, if there was a such thing as a spokesponcho for fall... And spellcheck is really giving me a conniption fit right about now because not only did I just make up a word but I made spellcheck one word again and it really hates when I do that! 

Anne Klein Round Crystal Index Watch
I usually don't go for a bracelet watch because they are always way too big for my wrist so I have to go through the trouble of taking it somewhere to have some of the links removed. And I realize I may have just admitted that I have a lazy streak. But this?  Would be worth the trouble...

Art Stripe Scarf in olive green/white
Seriously, what is not to love about this scarf?  Okay...maybe the price tag...$58 at Nordstrom.  Little more than I, personally, would normally fork over for a scarf but maybe if I'm extra good Santa will leave it under the Christmas tree.

Campground Classics Scarf in Greyscale
Love this circle scarf!  $24.99 at modcloth.
This reminds me of the 70's and seems I can't ever compose a Fancy Friday post without at least one item with a touch of hippie flair working for it. And today? This would be it.  

This dolman boatneck tee comes in seven different colors at Anthropologie.  Seven!  I know y'all love this as much as I do.  Right?

Perfect fall hat...
Found this little number at American Eagle.  If black and white is not your thing, it also comes in a shade of red which appears to be more coral, and a navy...

Cookie Pie Coat (yes, that's really what they are calling this at Modcloth)
I realize it's still a bit warm for this yet but I fell right in love with it and just had to go ahead and share it. Sweet!

This bag comes in three other colors at endless.  Although this one looks black in the picture, they say it's navy.

I think this would look cute with some tights and a pair of boots...

This would be perfect for throwing on over yoga pants when it's chilly out...

And because my mother would not approve of me ending with 13 things, I give you one more for an even (and not unlucky) 14...

Very fallish, aren't they?

And since SPELL CHECK is pitching another fit on me because I continue to go all rogue by making up more words, I think I'll put a period on this one and call it done.

Happy Friday, Y'all!

  1. OH!

    I love the watch! Beautiful earth tones in the metal. :)

    Yes, fall has been lovely here as well. We're looking at 80 degrees this weekend! Un-Be-Lieveable!

  2. I love the range of colors on Maple trees. From fire red to an almost blinding gold.

    For me its do I wear blue jeans today or blue jeans. Just keeping it simple.

  3. The first thing I did this morning was check the weather. We are on break and headed to the zoo (I mean we are the zoo!).

    It will be a nice 79 degrees:)

    Love looking at cute clothes on your Friday post. It was hard to pick a favorite, today.

  4. big, huge YES to the poncho and very fallish earrings!

  5. You're making me want to shop. I LOVE those boots and that poncho. They would look great together!

  6. I really like that poncho.

    And I wish I could pull off that hat. Maybe I should try anyway.

  7. I'd like the boots, sweater dress and hat - except I don't have good 'hat face.' You find such good stuff!
