Feeling Fall Linkup

When I heard about the Feeling Fall Linkup that Carrie, Jamie, and Laura were hosting, I knew I had to participate! What's more fun than styling an outfit and answering a few fun fall questions? When choosing my outfit, I decided to veer away from traditional dark fall colors and go with bright pinks, oranges, and neutrals. It's still pretty warm here (like 90 degrees), so piling on the dark and heavy layers just wasn't an option. My favorite things about this outfit? The buttons on the shoulder of my sweater and how versatile my scarf is! I've had it for a few years and when fall and winter roll around, I wear it all. the. time. This post was such a blast to style, shoot, and write. I can't wait to see how everyone else is "feeling fall!" 

What is your favorite fall trend? I really love how incorporating leather into your wardrobe isn't just limited to boots and purses this season. I've been seeing more leather accents than ever before! Don't you think that the texture and color of this skirt I'm wearing (which was also featured on College Prepster) screams fall?
What is your favorite fall Starbucks drink? Carmel Apple Spice. I know the traditional fall drink is a PSL, but I just cannot stand the unnatural color and flavor. The Carmel Apple Spice is a great alternative because it has a festive flavor without being over the top. 
If you could only wear one pair of boots for this whole fall season, which pair would they be? Lately it hasn't been getting cold enough here in California to wear bulky and warm boots. I love how these Jimmy Choo booties completely capture the essence of fall yet still stay light and versatile. Which color do you like best? I'm leaning toward ebony, but sandalwood is also so cute. Maybe I'll take both ;) Just kidding. With a $995 price tag, the only place I'll be wearing these gorgeous boots is in my dreams! 
What is your favorite fall activity? Every Halloween, my family puts on "The House of Payne" in our garage. Friends, family, and neighbors come to our haunted house (which, by the way, is realllyyy scary) and it is always such a great way to spend the night! With the last name of Payne, how can we not go all out for the spookiest time of year?!  

Thanks CarrieJamie, and Laura for hosting this linkup! It was so much fun. Do you have a fall staple for your wardrobe? I'm headed to do some outlet shopping after my SAT and would love some suggestions! Have a happy SATurday! ;)
