helter-skelter | apple cider and fall clothes.

I remember being young and my mom talking to the lady in the checkout line at the grocery store about my name.  The lady would lean down and ask me if spring was my favorite season.  I'd always scowl and say "No- I like the fall".  I used to hate my name but now over the years I've grown to appreciate its uniqueness.  With 5 katie's 3 Lindsey's and 4 heathers in my classes I grew to like that I was the only Spring.  I also have never loved spring- or mud season as I like to call it. With its glorious colors, cool crisp air, apple cider, pumpkins, sweaters and jeans fall has always been my favorite time of year.  As much as a mourn the passing of summer, I can't help but look forward to fall.  Fall is also my favorite time to shop.  Not that I ever have a least favorite time to shop.

As I walked around Banana Republic with my friend Shannon the other day carring 30 things to try on I realized just how much I love fall clothes.  Sweaters, light weight jackets, scarves- I just get so excited to be able to layer things!

Speaking of which here are a few of the newest arrivals on my fall wardrobe wish list:

1. Striped cowlneck T from Gap. 2. Women's Fleece Moto Jacket from Old Navy 3. Shirred V-Neck Cardigan from Ann Taylor Loft 4. Snapshot Wrap from Banana Republic 5. There's a Time for Everything Watch Necklace from Ruche 6. Green Tea Leaf Top from Ruche
