This fall has been seriously strange here in Connecticut. This past weekend it was in the high 70’s with 85%+ humidity – HARDLY fall by any means! Most of the leaves are still green, and I still have my AC on a lot of days. Trying to get into that ‘cozy fall vibe’ spirit is a little hard.. I feel like I am kind of spoiled here as a New England girl, and am experiencing what some of you southerners and Texans experience when trying to “transition into fall”. The struggle is seriously real, but it’s making me appreciate seasons in a way I’m not really sure I have before. 

You all know I’m such a summer girl and live for warm weather and the sun. I would be fine if it stayed warm all year long and dipped into the 60-70’s just for a few months. But growing up in Connecticut, I’ve been used to leaves and pumpkins around Thanksgiving, a white blanket of snow for Christmas, winter activities in the New Year, and those gorgeous spring blooms around April. It seems like that’s totally changing the last few years – our seasons have definitely shifted!

Despite the warmer weather, I’ve still been stocking my fall wardrobe with cozy sweaters (and trying to find fallish spots to shoot them to show you guys!). I just did my closet clean out + switch over this past weekend and realized how much I actually got rid of last year. I only had about 10 sweaters that I carried over! Thankfully, I stocked up in a few of the recent sales that have been happening. This vneck Free People sweater is a serious dream – SO soft and fits like a glove. It’s slightly oversized so just the perfect length. Free People makes some of my favorite sweaters – and just clothes in general. I always find a few good core sweaters or pieces for each season there.

On another note, I am winding down Whole 30 here and this round has been quite the interesting experience. I haven’t been able to share as much as I’d like to because so much has been going on behind the scenes here, but I do have some content on the calendar for you guys coming up soon. Tomorrow I’m actually sharing all about why I ditched candles/air fresheners and what I use now – this seemed to be such a hot topic from an instagram story I posted this past weekend.. and rightfully so! If you guys have any questions about that, please send me an email or post a comment below + I’ll make sure to include an FAQ in the blog post.

Hope you guys have a great week!
