September is the start of my favourite time of year. No, it’s not (just) because the kids go back to school. I love fall and the cozy feeling it brings! Okay, I know it’s still technically summer but autumn is just around the corner. There’s something about this part of the season that I simply adore; the leaves are starting to change colour and the temperature is lowering to a point where it’s warm during the day but you might need a sweater for the morning or evening.
For some reason, this is also my favourite time of year to shop. From cozy sweaters to warm scarves, and great mugs to wraps your hands around, not to mention fun fall decor. I’ve already started browsing and have my eye on some items that might just end up coming home with me.
Wrap Yourself in Warmth
Confession time: I’ve become a little obsessed with scarves in the past couple of years. They are such a great accessory for fall, not only because they help keep you warm but they can add that extra little something to your outfit. I love my blanket scarf because it can double as a wrap, but sometimes a simple scarf with my jacket is just what I need. However, I’ve been searching for something I can put on quickly as I head out the door to walk the kids to school and I think this soft chenille shawl is the answer. Sure, it’s technically a reading shawl, but how great would it look paired with skinny jeans, a cute tee and stylish boots?
Get Comfy and Cozy
While I’m wrapped up in my blanket scarf or reading shawl, I might as well curl up with a good book. But first I will grab my reading socks and then I need a comfortable spot to settle in. Nothing could make a favourite reading nook more inviting than hanging an art print with the message “the snuggle is real” on it! Add some plush pillows to snuggle up to and I’m set. This one would be the perfect addition to my little reading corner. If you’re like me and enjoy being extra cozy, then chances are you have a throw blanket close at hand when you’re diving into the pages of a good book. And when it’s getting late and I just can’t put the book down, I like having a lamp beside me so I can read just one more chapter (or two!)
Soothe Your Soul One Sip at a Time
Whether I’m sipping on tea while reading or enjoying my morning coffee, I love a great mug! I’ve been getting rid of some older mugs recently and have found some potential replacements. This coffee mug is the perfect expression of how caffeine adds a little magic to start my day, but if I really want to add some magic to my morning, this mug is on trend. And since I can’t always be relaxing at home to enjoy a warm beverage, a reliable travel mug is a must for this mama.
Even though the weather seems to be warming up a bit again, I think I’ll still grab my blanket scarf, refill my coffee mug and start reading the new book I just bought. Who’s with me?
