As much as I’m desperately filling these last couple weeks with as much of summer as I can, fall is definitely in the air. Even the unexpected heat we had this weekend can’t disguise the fact that the sun is going down just a little earlier and the evenings, even in the heat, are lovely and cool. I’m looking forward to bringing out my scarves again and layering a bit. And even as I’m clearing things out in preparation for all of us being inside more, I’m finding a few things I’m coveting for fall.
I’m a year-round tea drinker, with a three+ cup a day habit, but fall calls for even more tea and hot chocolate. I love the shape of these mugs from West Elm and little enamel teapots get me every time. In fact, teapots are the only thing that I come close to collecting, you’ll find them scattered throughout our home as I find them so appealing.
I need a sweater or two to curl up in with my tea, I think. And some sky-high wedges to rock the new layers. Both of these are from Garnet Hill.
Finn and I have pondered the purchase of a Le Creuset dutch oven for years now and can never bring ourselves to pull the trigger. Crate and Barrel’s new release of the Kobenstyle casserole dish may be our new choice. In white, of course, perfect for my favorite butternut squash and kale baked risotto.
Are you feeling the call of fall (yes, I know) yet? Anything on your wish list?
