Happy fall y’all!

I love fall it would be my favorite season if it actually felt like Texas got a true fall. I grew up on the east coast and there is just something about fall leaves changing color and chilly weather that makes fall that much more special.
I’ve been majorly loving a few things this season and just had to share. I feel like it’s crazy that we are approaching Thanksgiving and soon Christmas it feels like fall is over before it really began. I’m excited for the next few weeks and hope that Texas gets the. memo on the fall weather.
What I’m Loving Lately
Apples! I go through phases with apples and sometimes they are too bitter and make my throat itchy? Is that even a real thing haha. I’ve been buying apples recently for a few reasons. One they are so cheap! I always try to buy whatever produce is in season it makes shopping that much more affordable. Two, they make a great afternoon snack! I’ve been eating with this nut butter and oh my it’s basically a dessert haha.
My Starbucks Order: I’m a pretty avid Starbucks customer but only when I really get hooked on a drink. I love a good PSL, but they are sometimes just TOO sweet (and the calories give me a heart attack). I made up this drink and it has to be around 100 calories or less.
How to Order
Grande Iced Shaken Espresso with no Classic Syrup. One pump Pumpkin Spice Syrup (could also do two pumps!) with Pumpkin Cream Cold Foam.
I promise it’s not as much of a mouthful as it seems haha. I absolutely love it and on chillier mornings still crave it. I also love that it has three shots of espresso! You could also try this with oat milk but oat milk just really hasn’t been doing it for me so I’ve been drinking 2%.
Western Boots: I seriously can’t get enough of my cowboy boots right now. Is it weird that I think they seriously go with everything?! Mine are these (similar linked here). I wear them all the time!! I think they are the perfect fall accessory and can’t wait to start styling them with sweaters this fall. It’s so funny to me how boot trends change every year. Remember when two years ago OTK suede boots were IT. I just pulled mine out of storage and don’t even see myself wearing them this year.
Fall Football! This is usually one of my favorite’s every year but especially this year for a few reasons. TCU football (where Pierce and I went to school) is just more fun this year. It’s a combination of not having it last year and being extra grateful for it this year and being able to share it with my sister who is a freshman on campus. We have also been keeping up with the Cowboys and they are actually really good this year so it’s been fun to watch their games. I wouldn’t usually call myself an avid football fan (more a pro tailgater) but this year I actually know what’s going on (thanks to Pierce).
This Sweater Dress: I ordered this so spur of the moment. It was a last second add to my cart and I’ve been wearing it non stop. I love how soft it is and I can’t wait to wear this fall. Can’t you just envision with my cowboy boots?! UGH I die!
Maple Oat Milk Creamer: Another coffee thing! When I’m not grabbing my favorite Starbucks drink, I’m making it at home with my Pumpkin Spice Cake Nespresso pods and this Maple Oat Milk Creamer from Trader Joes! Trader Joe’s has the best fall and pumpkin goodies out right now. I live for their pumpkin bread every year!
Miller’s Monthly Bandanna Subscription: This is probably one of my favorites every month, but this month’s bandanna might be my favorite ever! It’s so cute! Miller get’s a monthly bandanna from this subscription service and they are always so cute and unique. I love that they slip over her collar and can’t be tugged off.
