While I admit that Halloween doesn’t top my favourite holiday list, I do like particular aspects of it. It’s common to see more wise ol’ owls in homes at this time of year, but their popularity definitely extends beyond October 31st.

Oh man, am I ever sad that the cold weather has arrived. While I do love back-to-school season, the colder fall weather is not really for me. I’m definitely a spring/summer gal, so when the temperatures fall (currently hovering around 10C), and I’m forced to wear layers, I get annoyed. While I know many fashion bloggers are enjoying the arrival of cozy textured sweaters and leather knee boots, I am trying to extend the wear of my Havaianas and jean jacket.
So it probably comes as little surprise that I don’t really decorate for fall. While I do love Hermes orange (who doesn’t?), the traditional fall colours do not really have a place in my home. (Gosh, I do sound cranky, don’t I? It doesn’t help that I’m also currently sick as a result of the non-stop action that I experience every September!).
Trying to be positive about this seasonal change, here are five white things that I would have in my home and wardrobe this fall (especially if money grew on fall trees)…

What about you? How do you feel about the fall? What will you be bringing into your home this season?
I have featured my growing menagerie around my home here on the blog over the last few years. While I haven’t added any new pieces to my collection recently, I do still keep my eye out for interesting items.

Have any friends or family who are graduating this spring? Wouldn’t this stylish owl make a great gift?

This little guy would fit in perfectly with my existing menagerie. Hmm…something to think about.

Note: For all the readers in London, Ontario – did you know that Urban Outfitters is going to open up at the corner of Oxford and Richmond? While I’m not exactly a frequent shopper at Urban Outfitters, I do think it’ll be great for the downtown core. What do you think?
