Today is officially the first day of fall, but I didn’t need the calendar to tell me that. This morning when I walked out of my house, I could feel the change of season around me. Not because the leaves on the trees are changing (everything is always green in Florida), but because the air was much more drier. The humidity is finally taking a break in South Florida and cooler evening are finally on the way.
I love new seasons, especially fall. I feel that season give us a fresh start in our lives. It’s a chance to evaluate the things in life that are working, and make changes to the things that aren’t sitting just right. I always set goals for myself when seasons start to help myself transition with the season.
To align all of the elements of the new season, I make changes to all of the aspects of my life. I introduce fall decoration and fragrances into my home to set the mood. This year I have included painted pumpkins in my décor, which are surrounded by the scent of sage & thyme.
My closet also undergoes a change and it’s currently a work in progress. I get to bring back my dark colored garments, as well as include new hues from the season’s color palette. I can’t wait for the weather to continue to change, so that I can start sharing some of my favorite trends for the season with you.
But my favorite part of fall is of course HALLOWEEN! I can’t wait to share looks from my new collection of Halloween makeup looks (take a look at some of my past looks) and costume ideas, which were inspired by the upcoming season of American Horror Story. Yes, AHS is another reason I look forward to fall.
I’m excited to welcome the new season today and would like to wish you a very happy fall!
