School is back in session. Spooky season is just around the corner. The leaves are starting to change and even fall. And the pumpkin beer and lattes are plentiful. Fall is here and I could not be more excited! Growing up in the Northeast, there was always a special anticipation for fall. When I was young it meant going back to school, meeting up with friends at football games, and getting a fresh start on the new year. Those feelings never left me. Now that I have a teen and tween, I love to see their excitement when summer starts to wane, and the weather becomes cooler. We put the swimsuits away, and pull out the sweaters, flannels, and boots for fall. 

Now that I am older, I have an even greater appreciation for fall. I get to wear bigger, bulkier clothes to cover up the bits I used to show off in my pre-childbearing years. Babies are great, but they do a number on your body. While I have learned to embrace my “newer” shape and no longer feel ashamed, (this body did, after all, create and carry two of the most amazing humans on the planet) I do still sometimes get a shock when I look in the mirror while wearing summer clothes. It seems every day there is a new curve or lump. The terminology changes depending on my mood. And I do appreciate the challenge of covering them up.

But, even more so than that, I love sliding into my boots while wearing a big bulky flannel and/or sweater. Nothing beats a cute out and curling my hands around a warm Pumpkin Spice Latte or Pumpkin Beer.

Whatever your passion is, I think you will find these flannels, puffy vests, and boots will be a welcome addition to your fall wardrobe. Happiness is all about how you feel. And these must-haves will make you feel great!
