Fall Equinox

Happy Fall! The best season of the year is finally here and I couldn't be more excited! I spent the fall equinox sipping on a pumpkin spice iced coffee, shopping around for some new fall threads, watching Hocus Pocus and going on a walk with Scott around my parents property. This morning I woke up to cooler temperatures (64 degrees? What!), and promptly piled on a sweater and a pair of boots. I knew that there could be a possibility that I may be sweating by lunch, so I made sure to layer and brought a pair of sandals with to keep in my car - just in case. A sweet gal left a comment on one of my Instagram photos of how she dressed her kids today for a half chill/half hot day, which included a poncho and shorts - so very Arizonian (and super funny!). Thanks for the good laugh, and the thought that I'm not alone in my dressing dilemma!

With the change of the season also comes a change in my music habits. I have a few select bands that I usually become obsessed with this time of year, like The Weakerthans, Stars, Cursive, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, etc. SSLYBY actually just released a new cd last week that Scott and I have been listening to non-stop on our daily drives around town. About three years ago SSLYBY came to Phoenix and played at an old venue called The Trunk Space (think teeny tiny venue in a bad part of town, but the stage is so close that you can almost guarantee a good show). To this day, I still feel like its one of the best shows I've ever seen, and I'm hoping that when they play Scottsdale this time around we can see them again.

My Monday has been pretty easy going so far. Tonight I don't any plans other than to work on editing some photos, and maybe picking up a hot drink and going on another long walk. The start of fall always feels so special, and reminds me of all of the good that has come out of my favorite season. Scott and I first met in late September of 2006, and I also started posting my daily outfits here in late September 2010 (see my first, slightly embarrassing post right here).

Ok, I'm out for the afternoon! Tell me, why is fall so special to you? -Chelsea xo


  1. Sounds like such a great start to Fall! Oh my, you look like a baby in that post wee ago.

  2. Autumn is so special to me because it means I can whip out my ever so snug, great coat from H&M, my ear muffs and gloves from Jane Norman, different colours, shades and varieties of scarves and mufflers, aaaand the awesome boots I'm yet to buy! :)

    Much Love, Mary Xxxx

    P.S. Sorry about the previously deleted comment, Chelsea, there was a spelling mistake =/
