Katie's Fall Picks

Fall in the South is a fabulous time when temperatures start to cool off, and pumpkins and apple bobbing starts to pick up. With the relief from the heat comes a great time of year to get outside and enjoy activities such as hiking, fishing, and hunting. Or if those aren’t your cup of tea, it is always great to wander through a pumpkin patch sipping a pumpkin spiced latte. Here are some of my favorite finds you'll find in my home this Fall!

Holiday Cheer

Lemondaisy Design Pumpkins

The large plastic pumpkins feature hand-painted coastal designs and are perfect for a poolside or front-porch from Halloween through Thanksgiving. Bring a little coastal cheer to your house year after year!

Fancy Fan Collection from Taylor Reese

I am so impressed with the variation of colors and styles by this talented jewelry designer. It can be challenging to find gameday gear that fits into your wardrobe! From bracelet stacks that celebrate Samford to SMU, everyone will find fabulous pieces to choose from. The motto on her website says it all: “There’s no place like your alma mater.” Pictured: Pre-Game Beaded Hoops

The Cordoba Shirt by Poncho

This shirt is lightweight and breathable for those hot days on the dove field. It has a UPF of 50+ and dries in minutes. It is even made of anti-odor fabric and comes with a built-in lens cloth to get the dust off your glasses. Any man (including my husband) would be happy to live in this shirt.

Mollie Jenkins Pottery Ghosts

Mollie created these ghost sculptures back in 2013, and they have been a huge hit ever since. Available in 4 sizes, I love to group them and add a tea light at night. Perfect for any mantle or small space where you want to add a little Halloween happy!

Slip Silk Pillowcase

Silk pillowcases are all the rage, and the Slipsilk pillowcase is the best! Slipsilk has been tested by an independent lab and shown to reduce hair friction (who wants to wake up with frizzy hair) and lessen absorption of every Southern girl's beloved overnight face cream.

Nori Steam Iron

When you don’t want to get out the heavy iron or when you are traveling and still want to look put together, pull out the Nori Steam Iron. The iron looks like a hair flat iron, but its head has the shape of a small clothes iron. It’s easy to use and easy to pack in your suitcase.
