Hi there! It’s Liz from Sequins and Stripes and I am super excited to be participating in Natasha’s fabulous new series: Fall 5. There are so many factors that play into my adoration for the fall season – the colors, fashion, décor, pumpkin pies, football season, jack-o-lanterns, crisp mornings, cozy knits, boots, and the anticipation of the holiday season. However, if I had to pick just five, here are my fall favorites:

1.     Fall Fashion:  The temperature transition between summer and fall allows for some amazing fashion styles to emerge. I love roaming around the city {I’m from Chicago!} on crisp, cool mornings in an oversized knit sweater, skinny jeans and boots. I will definitely be investing in a great coat {all you need to run out the door}, a fabulous pair of riding boots, a fisherman sweater, new skinny jeans, a dash of leopard, and a tailored blazer. Fall is such a classic season that you don’t need too many items to create a perfectly styled wardrobe.

2.     Chili: My favorite weekend routine in the fall is heading to the Farmers Market on Saturday morning, stocking up on fresh veggies, and inviting friends over for Sunday football and warm bowls of chili.  I love the spicy, warm smell that fills your home and the way it brings everyone together!

3.     Pumpkins: I mean, who doesn’t love pumpkins? Pumpkin seeds, pumpkin pie, pumpkin lattes, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin soup, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin beer, and a good ol’ jack-o-lantern.  I love pumpkins.

4.     Fall décor: I think a large part of my love for fall is the décor. I always have candles lit in the fall, I hang my Christmas lights a little early, bowls of candy corn are always on hand, and I hang my first wreath of the season on my door.  Not only is the inside of my house decorated, I can’t get enough of all of the fabulous colors that fill the streets. Soon enough the leaves will change and the city will be filled with red, orange, and yellow galore.

5.     Fall nails: I have never been a black nail polish kind of gal, it makes my skin look pale and I’d much rather be wearing a fun color. Essie has some fabulous colors for this season and I have already snatched up a few new favorites! In order: Carry On, Case Study, Power Clutch, Lady Like, and Very Structured.

A HUGE thank you to Natasha for including me in this fun new series! I can’t wait for cooler weather and to take advantage of all of these fall favorites. Make sure to stop by Sequins and Stripes to find more fall inspired posts and daily inspiration for a styled life.
