It takes the South a long time to really “feel” like fall. We sit in the ’80s for most of October and, in fact, I remember a few very warm Halloween evenings where my kids were sweating in their costumes!
That is a wildly different experience than my own childhood in Illinois where I often had to cover my costume with my winter jacket.
Anyway, if you aren’t quite ready to switch your wardrobe over to Fall, here are 3 ways to subtly nod to the season change.
Coin pendant necklaces are an easy way to dress up a simple plain t-shirt or even a fancier dress. I love Mara’s round-up of coin necklaces here! I found myself preferring a pendant necklace that wasn’t quite so similar to an actual coin, and this option from Madewell was the perfect find.
I love a bright orange-y manicure in the summer, but come Fall I want muted tones on my nails. I still feel very far away from dark grey nails but a soft, sheer pink or cream is right up my alley. Essie’s Gel Couture in Fairy Tailor is my go-to when I polish my nails at home. By the way, read this post for a successful home manicure!
