20 Little Things I like about Fall

In my previous life as an Interior Designer, I used to browse every single day Melissa's blog, The Inspired Room.
She's got the balance between beautiful pictures, interesting and practical text and a personal touch just right and that keeps you hooked on her posts. Melissa has just put up an Embracing Fall meme and I can only join in the fum.{I like memes cause they help me focus on the good stuff}.

My 20 Little Things list

1. Fresh air. After all the summer heat, I am grateful for a breeze of fragrant fresh air.


2.Cardigans. Colourful and forgiving, they extend my summer wardrobe well into the Autumn.

3.Salon hair. Summer heat calls for DIY wash and go hair. Just before Winter humidity settles, Autumn is the perfect time for some polishing.


4.Chocolate season begins. Fresh enough to keep chocolate from melting on your fingers and sticking on the keyboard ;)

5.Shop displays. Warm browns and oranges, greens and rich textures.


6.Fall catalogues. A feast, a daydream, an occasion to shop my closet and update my look.
7.Shop the new IKEA catalogue. Looove!

Lilly Pulitzer
8.Stationery. For my kids...and me!
9.The perfume of new books.


10. American friends posting about pumpkins and autumn stuff.

Susan Branch

17.I am an Autumn, colourwise, so Autumn colours suit me best! (Can you believe it, Susan Branch, one of my favorite artists is an Autumn, too! Happy coincidence!)
18.New photo opportunities. We are in a new city, so let's have some fun!
