Tomorrow is the first day of Fall and I have mixed feelings about it. On one hand I welcome it with the same excitement as I do every year, on the other hand I feel a little down that it’s this time of the year already and things still feel chaotic in the country. While I had already watched documentaries and tons of youtube videos on the great RBG, her passing a few days ago had me circling back to her history and the life she led. As a woman and business owner, I have so much to thank her for. What a beautiful thing it is to live a life that shatters ceilings and opens doors for so many.

I’ve mentioned it previously a few times, but even before the chaos that’s been happening in 2020, I’ve lived my life with this zoom in, zoom out approach. Where 90% of the time I’m zoomed into my personal life (where what matters most is i.e. family and friend relationships and my personal work and passions) and the other 10% of the time I allow myself to zoom out in order to take in and educate myself on things happening. I’m so strict with my zooming out time, that sometimes I miss “big” news. People think that because I work primarily on the internet/social apps for my job that I’m always in the know and that can’t be further from the truth. One example of this was a couple of weeks ago when I didn’t realize a tropical depression was coming my way until it was already here at 2:30am one morning. At that point I hopped on twitter to see what my local news had said about it and sure enough they’d been talking about it for days and I just never knew 🙈
Anyway, all of this to say I really am still excited for the new season as it always brings a sense of freshness to the air and of course I’m going bananas with all of the seasonal/holiday decor in my new house. I mentioned on my Instagram the other day that I had to stop buying holiday decor (really any decor) the last few years living in my apartment, because I really had no more room for it. I actually did the majority of my decor shopping before even moving into my apartment during after-holiday sales. So I was stocked when it came time to move in. However, now in my house that’s 3 times the size of my apartment I’m ready to finally shop for it again. My Fall front porch was completed a week ago and I’m already shopping for Christmas decor-having purchased 3 things of garland last week 😂
In celebration of Fall beginning tomorrow, today I’m sharing 16 dresses to get you excited fo Fall. As you see in the photo above, I love wearing flowy (and often flowery) dresses at home when I want to stay comfortable, but also feel dressed up. Moving from summer, now just switched the color palettes to more deep and warm hues.
