We had an unusual October. I mean it’s normal to sweat in Texas on Halloween, but we normally get a few gifted days of cool weather. But our temperatures are still flirting in the high 80s so I’ve got to fake fall.

This is my absolute favorite way to fake fall weather! I throw on over-the-knee boots with a Free People dress. This combination feels a bit bohemian and yet just the right amount girly girl with jewelry and the proper handbag. This dress does run a big larger, but for those scared that most FP dresses [as of this past season] are super short, this one isn’t! However, I always like that the dresses have an oversized fit because it dresses down whatever you are wearing.

But even though I’m faking fall I’m putting the tree up this weekend and no one can stop me! 😉 We are taking our Christmas card photos on Saturday morning so I thought it would be naturally fitting to get the tree up after. It may be 88 degrees, but I’ll be blasting Michael Bublé, drinking hot chocolate and figuring out how on earth to get ribbon perfectly spaced out on a tree like so! Any ideas on how you are decorating your tree this year?!

  1. You’re more than welcome to head to Boston for some REAL (chilly) fall weather! I love that you’re putting up your tree this weekend! I stocked up at the after Christmas sales sale last year for everything gold and sparkly for my tree, I’m so excited open my decor box because I bet theres a ton I don’t remember buying 😉 Happy Monday, Katey!

      Hi Abi!

      Haha so funny! I normally take it down after new years! But this year I’ll probably take it down ASAP to prepare for baby! I just like to get my tree up, 4 weeks isn’t long enough for me to admire it. 😉

    My tree went up last Thursday and I’m loving it. I actually had time this weekend to cuddle on the couch and enjoy it so no regrets here! Can’t wait to see how you do your tree!

  6. Same in California! We’ve still been in the 80’s and 90’s as well! Occasional cold days, but I’m dying for more of them so I can wear cute fall clothes!
