“Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn.”
Smell that? The subtle scent of fall is creeping through the air and I am so grateful. Fall is definitely my favourite season. The temperature is perfect, the air smells crisp and inviting and I get to dig out those cute and comfy clothes I’ve had packed away since May.
As a proud Canadian who genuinely loves the season and all it has to offer, I like to celebrate fall with a few classic items:
Davids Tea Pumpkin Chai. If you haven’t tried it already, I insist you march over to the nearest Davids Tea now and buy a tin. It’s like pumpkin pie in a cup. Trust me. This sweet black tea is only available when fall rolls around and as soon as it’s back, I buy 100 grams to last me until the winter collection arrives. No sugar necessary. Add just a splash of milk and you’ll be in the mood for fall.
Price: $15.96 *before tax for 100g plus you get a free tin!
Roots Original Sweatpant. I prefer the “Salt and Pepper” colour, but there are other options available. These pants are on the second I get in the door after work. Durable and so so soft, they’re a wardrobe staple for us Canadian gals.
Price: $72*before tax
Hudson’s Bay fleece throw. I received mine as a gift a few years ago and I love it so much that I gifted a couple to other people. If you’re into the HBC Stripes collection but don’t want to break the bank, their fleece throws are a great addition to any Canadian living room/bedroom/any room, really. Watch for sales and you can get a great deal.
Price: $45 *before tax
Felt floppy hat. Super trendy but also so fun to wear, except maybe when it’s windy. You can find a hat like this at almost any clothing/accessories store, but the prices vary quite a bit. With items like this, I’m not about to break the bank. I got my hat for a great deal at Aldo Accessories a couple of years ago and they still sell the same model. It looks great with a light anorak jacket or chunky fall sweater and a bright-coloured scarf!
Price: $35 *before tax
Ankle boots. Preferably in the cognac colour, because it’s more fall-esque, am I right? I bought a pair of cognac ankle boots from Call It Spring last year and they were a great deal for faux-leather foot candy. They’re also very comfortable and look great with jeans.
Price: $74.99 *before tax
Fall products are always fun, but another wonderful thing about fall in Canada is the views. If you’re in the Toronto area, I highly recommend taking a stroll through High Park when the leaves are changing. There is something so peaceful and invigorating about a fall walk on a weekend afternoon.
