It doesn't hurt that all of my magazine favorites have settled right into it as well. Halloween seems to be a big focus~and that's fine by me since we're neighboring October. But there are a few items I can't wait to wear, a few things I'd like to try. Like these yarn pumpkins...
I know it's been done before, but I love the soft appearance. The neutral color is a plus as well. They'd make lovely centerpieces all the way through Thanksgiving.
Brie and cranberry tartletts. Oh my goodness these sound amazing! The sweet and the tartness of the cranberry, the smooth, nutty creaminess of the brie~there is no way this this won't be good. It's also really simple, so why not put out a plate of these to tide the family over while dinner is being prepared?
Decorating our mantle. Okay...I actually took care of this one already! Check!
I'm also excited about donning this pretty scarf! The great thing about California is that year round the mornings and evenings are really cool. When we get into the cooler months it stays that way 24/7. This scarf is a classic navy plaid and though oversized, it's also light-weight. I'm looking forward to wearing it with a navy or white cable-knit and some riding boots.
And what better way to transition from the sweltering summer months than with a cool and delicious cocktail. A little cider rum punch fits the bill with its crisp apple taste! I cannot wait to have a few girlfriends over and sip this over a good gab session.
So what about you? What are you doing to welcome in the cooler days ahead? I'd love to know!
