Yes it is still 100 degrees out and yes, we still have occasional monsoons, but don’t let that ruin the fall mood!
I love living in Miami, I truly do. But, it would be very nice to be able to wear a leather jacket without breaking into sweats. Fall fashion is not really a thing here unfortunately, but that doesn’t mean we can’t try to set the mood in other ways. Here are three super easy ways to get you in the fall mood.
Bake the Seasonal Favorites
I mean what if food isn’t the way to your heart, I don’t know what is. Confession: I’ve never tried a pumpkin spice latte, but there is truly nothing like cinnamon sugar cookies and apple pie. Create that warm and cozy feeling any night but jumping into your PJs and baking the night away. Invite your friends or go solo, I am not one to speak nor judge.
Decorate the House
Don’t wan to a TJ Maxx or HomeGoods, RUN! They have the best decor; anything from costume to chic, and the best prices. Some pumpkins around the house or even a plaid throw can set the fall mood in your home. My mom puts little pumpkins from September to November all around the house. Even though it may be hot outside, it may feel crisp and cozy indoors.
Whenever we have people over around this time of year, we sometimes even set the TVs with fireplace videos to trick the mind.
Safe Scented Season
I was always the first to run to Bath & Body Works to purchase my favorite seasonal, scented candles to set the fall mood. HOWEVER, I have read several articles on the dangers of the chemicals released when burning candles that can lead to headaches, dizziness and allergy-like symptoms. Even though lighting a candle helped me unwind, I will be putting them away this year and stocking up on enough wall flowers to create the same effect without affecting the indoor air quality (IAQ, yep that’s a thing).
