Fall 2015 To-Do List

Happy First Day of Fall! 

I got a little to overzealous about today being the first day of fall and wore jeans and a fleece pullover to campus for a meeting...not realizing it was actually 75 degrees and sunny outside. I just want it to be sweater weather, okay?! I never really appreciated fall until I left Maine and went to Virginia for college. Since I have been gone, I understand how lucky I was to have beautiful falls in Maine. If this sounds a little bit like I am homesick to you, you're right...I just book flights home for Columbus Day weekend though so only two weeks until I am back! 
There is so much I want to do this fall, and since this is a relatively short season (only October and November, if you think about it!) I wanted to write it all down so I could make sure I got everything done that I wanted to.

~Go apple picking and make an apple pie.

~ Blanket scarves. (Need I say more?)

~Watch as many Halloween-themed or scary movies as I can.

~Go for a walk where I can get a perfect view of the changing leaves.

~Rock the darker lip colors. (hello to dark cranberry and almost purples, am I right?!)

~Eat all of the candy corn.

~*Attempt* to make a warm apple cider cocktail. 

~Celebrate JMU homecoming with my best friends. 

Most of all, I want to try being more adventurous this fall. I posted the picture below on my Instagram the other day, and I truly believe what it says. Fall is the time for starting something new and changing and I feel like I could change to be a more adventurous person. So to do that, I want to try one thing that pushes me outside of my comfort zone. I am not exactly sure what that will be yet, but this new season upon us just has me feeling inspired!

What are you looking forward to this fall?

Also, thank you to Pinky for this awesome link up today! I can't wait to get even more excited about fall through reading everyone's posts about it!


  1. Oh fall in the NE, I bet it's gorgeous in Maine this time of year. VA looks pretty nice, though. Head to Old Rag or anywhere on Skyline drive and you'll find gorgeous views.

    I love my blanket scarf, it was one of my favorite purchases last year. I mean, I love all scarves, haha.

    Thanks so much for joining in our linkup!!!

  2. mmm apple pie! last year (or was it the year before?) we did something fall-y in like early october and i dressed in a chunky sweater and boots and it was like 80 degrees. worst day ever hahaha.

  3. All of the candy corn - my kind of girl ;) And I seriously can't wait to break out the blanket scarves either, it was 82 degrees here today though so maybe next week, ha! Thanks for linking up with us today!

  4. I love that you were over zealous about Fall haha. I think your Fall list is perfect :)

  5. I'm also making it a goal to take in the pretty fall colors as much as possible. New York's leaves turn into beautiful shades of yellow, red, and orange, so I want to take advantage of the photo ops!

    Meet Me in Midtown

  6. You've made me want to bake an apple pie aha! Blanket scarves are soooo cosy as well, can't wait to get mine out!
