The Autumn Tag

Happy Friday! Hope y'all had a great week and have some fun weekend plans ahead. I'm just going to jump right into today's post since it's going to be a longer one! I am being totally #basic and wanted to do a fall tag post because they are just SO much fun. Even though it's supposed to be back up to 80 degrees all next week I'm still totally in that autumn mindset!
1. What signifies the start of Autumn for you? Since I went to Clemson which is obviously a HUGE football school, I think it's the start of football season. Even though I'm not the biggest watcher of any sports, I do follow Clemson and my hubby certainly does!
2. What is your favorite Fall scent? The "Pumpkin Pie" candle from Bath & Body Works is my absolute FAVORITE. I'm all about the ones that smell like food. Also LOVE "Leaves" and "Marshmallow Fireside" but I usually save that one for winter.
3. What is your favorite Autumn color? It definitely changes every year but I would say I consistently gravitate towards anything olive. This year I LOVE anything rust/burnt red like this sweater in the Brick shade or the cardigan from this post last week!!
4. What is your favorite Fall drink? I think I've mentioned this before but I really don't like Pumpkin Spice lattes. Sorry if I've offended anyone lol! When it comes to pumpkin drinks I totally LOVE Dunkin Donuts' iced coffee with the pumpkin flavoring and at Starbucks the "Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate" is my go-to for fall/winter. I also just love buying the Pumpkin-flavored creamers at the store for homemade coffee but sadly I've cut most dairy from my diet and I don't think they make an almond milk version:(
5. What TV show, new or old, are you looking forward to this Fall? STRANGER THINGS! I'm pretty sure I'm their #1 fan. Steven makes fun of me because whenever we have someone over who hasn't seen it, I always ask if they want to watch the first episode and I try to get them hooked. Superfan/super-nerd right here! I'm also always excited for Grey's Anatomy.
6. What is your favorite Fall fashion trend? This year I'm totally loving that blazers are EVERYWHERE right now. They're more classic than trendy but I have noticed they're pretty big this season. I also love mules/slides/loafers! I practically live in this pair from Halogen and this pair from Steve Madden.
7. What is your favorite Autumn activity? I love getting cider or hot chocolate and picking out our pumpkin. This year we're going to drive out to the country where they have a HUGE farm with such a big pumpkin patch, cider donuts, hay-rides, etc.
8. What is your favorite makeup look come autumnal weather? I feel like I don't switch up my make-up that much from season to season honestly. Year-round I pretty much stick to brown-ish nudes and mauve lips which I know most people gravitate towards in the fall. For me it's just what I feel most comfortable in every season!

I hope y'all enjoyed this post! Feel free to steal these questions if you're looking for a fun tag post because I loved answering them!

  2. What a fun post! I'm so excited for the fall temperatures, even though it's going to be so warm next week like you mentioned! The pumpkin patch is my favorite and if you are going to the one I'm thinking of, the cider donuts are the best! Have a great weekend, Kelly!

  8. What a fun tag! I love those candles from Bath & Body, too! In fact, I ordered a ton when they were having an awesome sale recently. I'm loving that blazer are trending as well, specifically the grey plaid/houndstooth ones. Thanks for sharing, beauty, and I hope you're having a great start to your weekend so far!


  9. I am not a PSL fan either, but I do like the candles, so I will have to try the B&B pumpkin pie! Stranger Things in on my next watch binge list, can't wait!
