There’s really only one thing that is harsh about transitioning into fall. The time change. But like most anticipated, and slightly dreadful, occasions it’s like ripping off a bandaid. Once it’s done it never seems that bad after the fact. And on the flip side, this week it was chilly enough to have a fire, which instigated all kinds of cozy fall favorites—hot cider, holiday movies, chili and cornbread night and, my favorite, homemade cookies. Needless to say I’m beginning to fully embrace the season. Also if you’re in the techie mood this weekend, be sure to check out a new iPad app called Stylewhile. You can virtually try on clothes it’s completely addicting. And be sure to find my curated wish list once you download the app here.
