October is here! When I was kid and asked what my favorite time of year was, I would always say summer without faltering. Now, with my job as a teacher, I still love summer because I have time to travel and explore. However, as I’ve grown older, I more and more think that fall is my favorite season. I love the weather, the flavors, the fashion, the decorations, the holidays (and lead up to Christmas), and everything else! I can’t wait for it to start feeling a little more like fall in Los Angeles. Thank goodness I’m going to Colorado in a few weeks for some red, orange, and yellow leaves! Happy October + highlights of my favorite links this week are below! Hint: there are a couple can’t miss sales, cough *Tory Burch* cough.
