It is definitely fall here, there’s no doubt about that. The other day it was 37* F when I woke up!
The colors are changing on the trees, the mornings are cool and crisp, and there’s darkness when I go to bed!
I’ve always liked fall. From my childhood days, fall reminds me of cross country meets, harvest on the farm, jumping in leaves, and marching band practice. The only thing I don’t like about fall is the season that must follow.
As we embark on fall, here are some of my fall favorites including running and non-running clothes, my favorite pumpkin bread, and some things I am lusting after.
ArcTeryx Codetta Coat
I absolutely love the ArcTeryx Codetta Coat I purchased last fall. I wear this all the time as a little nicer rain jacket when out-and-about. I love the longer length to keep my pants dry and the sleeves are the perfect length.
Our falls are very rainy here in Anchorage, and I can be found wearing my Hunter boots quite regularly–along with my ArcTeryx coat. They are stylish yet functional and quite comfy for an extended walk.
Vegan Pumpkin Bread
I made this Vegan Pumpkin Bread this spring (Yes, it was an odd time to make pumpkin bread.), but I haven’t forgotten about it since. I whipped up a loaf yesterday, and I’ve had to hold back on eating the entire loaf. While it is vegan, I can’t say it is particularly healthy.
Oiselle Areo Tight
Sadly I’ve had to trade my shorts in for capris now. (Although I will take capris over a full tight.) These Oiselle Aero Tights are a favorite of mine and are worn very frequently. I love the moto detailing and the asymmetrical hem on the ankle. I also love that they hit below my calf, which prevents them from sliding up over my calf muscles when running.
Lululemon Running Tights
I think I want to get the Speed Tight V from Lululemon as one of my fall/winter running tights. However, I like the ruching at the ankles that the IV, so maybe I should snag them before they are discontinued.
Pumpkin + soups. . . . .they all scream fall, and here are some I will probably end up making: Pumpkin Pancakes for One, Potato & Kale Soup, Taco Soup, and this Miracle No-Knead Bread to go with all the soups.
I know sweaters are all the rage during fall, but I need some recommendations as to where I can buy some. I have recently become obsessed with Primp Boutique (a cheap, chic, boutique), but they are in Minnesota, so that doesn’t help my problem. I can have them clothes shipped to my house, but I would prefer to try them on.
What other stores should I check out?
I’ve been wanting a pair of Birkenstocks since last summer. I had every intention of purchasing a pair this summer, but the shipment to the store (Skinny Raven) didn’t make it until the end of the summer. There are two pairs in my size, this black pair and a light brown/tan color.
I haven’t decided if I am going to buy a pair because fall is here, which means winter is too close, so maybe I should just hold off. I do like the brown pair because it has a fun marbled look to the leather, but the black might go with more things?? Although I know I could find a lot to wear with both. If I would get a pair, which pair should I get?
What are you eyeing this fall?
