Favorite Treat: It wouldn't be Autumn without a trip to Yates for hot cider and a donut. The best part is, there is a Yates shop in Canterbury Village which is not far at all from our new house! If you're headed to the Rochester Hills location, I would suggest making a morning out of it and walking the nature trail; the colors are beyond stunning right now in Michigan.


Favorite Look: There's that sweet spot in the season where you can wear all your cute, third piece layers without having to cover them with a heavy winter coat and you can wear your suede boots without having to worry about them getting damaged from snow and salt. I wish I could find somewhere to live that felt like this year round (although maybe I wouldn't appreciate it as much if I did). I love this cape and these boots for this exact moment of the season.


Favorite Quote: From one of my all-time favorite writers, F. Scott Fitzgerald, this quote sums up my feelings about the season perfectly. It's finally cool enough for scarves, boots, hats, sweaters and all other things cozy and I only hope it's here to stay. Maybe it's the lifelong student in me, but Fall always feels like new beginnings, even more than the start of a new calendar year each January (image found via Pinterest).


Favorite Find: I'm seriously coveting this sherpa lined, buffalo plaid jacket that I found at H&M. Mustard is so on trend right now, but with such a classic silhouette and print I feel like it isn't trying too hard to be of the moment. So perfect with dark denim, your favorite white tee and booties for a casual look OR you could mix it up with a calf length accordion-pleated skirt and some fresh white kicks for a fun twist.


Favorite Song: 'Fare Thee Well' by Oscar Isaac and Marcus Mumford from the film 'Inside Llewyn Davis.' This one just sounds like Fall and is the perfect melancholy, folky song to be your backdrop for a rainy afternoon with a yummy candle burning and a cozy blanket on.
