Fall is officially here in the Bay Area! After a few weeks of unseasonably warm weather (76* in October) the season has finally changed. Autumn is my personal favorite, although Matt much prefers Summer. Here is a list of my favorite things about this season:

Coats! Peacoats! Capes! I love these vintage coat patterns from The Playful Needle! I just replaced my old, ratty peacoat which I've had since high school. I've kept it so long because I love it so much. It's the perfect cut and length; I haven't been able to find one since. But the other day I was in Therapy in downtown Campbell and found THE most perfect peacoat ever. I just need to hem the sleeves a bit, but I'm so excited to wear it this winter.

Matt and I are huge fans of candles and incense! There is something about them that makes my apartment feel cozier. If I don't pick up incense from my local head shop, I love ordering from Divine Scentsations. Her incense lasts FOREVER, and smell amazing.

Pumpkin EVERYTHING! Pumpkin pie, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin candles, pumpkin bread. Enough said.

Fall colors!

Fall themed dresses! I love this particular 70's style dress from The Loved One's Etsy store.

And this one from EMBER Vintage!

And don't forget Fall accessories! I love these headbands from Sunshine and Carousels. They are absolutely perfect! I just bought one in burgandy!

Who's going to bring back lady ties this season? Uh, ME!! I love these handmade ones!

These are my favorite things about the Fall season, what are yours? :)


  1. Thank you so much for including my lady ties in this post! I'm tickled you like them so much :) xoxo

  2. Lovely! I adore autumn, and this makes me want to put a pumpkin pie in the oven and start sewing a new coat! Thank you for making one of my patterns part of the inspiration.
