Fall Traditions

Fall has arrived! Yay! Can you tell it’s my favorite season?? Things I love about the fall: fall activities, fall foods, fall weather (in the northeast), and wearing layers, boots, jackets, etc. I also love fall decor, I don’t have a yard to decorate, but I love seeing the different ways people decorate their homes for the season. I can add small decorations on counters and tables.

Fall activities:

The plaid shacket is featured in my weekly newsletter, but I also came across a corduroy version:

another version $29 (+5% off coupon)

one more:

$45.99

Read about it in In Style: Shacket Season Is Back, and This Best-Selling Corduroy Button-Down Is Up to 43% Off. “On those fall days when it’s not quite cold enough for a jacket, but there’s still a chilly breeze in the air, a shacket is your best friend. The shirt-jacket combo gives you an extra layer of warmth without trapping in too much heat. Not to mention, it’s an easy way to spice up a casual outfit.” 

For Men:

Boots are essential footwear for most fall activities.
