Fallacious Fall

I said fallicious fall because here in southern California, I will be waiting several more weeks until fall is actually here. When I can leave my house with boots on my feet, a slice of pumpkin bread with a schmear of cream cheese on it and a cup of caramel apple cider in my hand. No, unfortunately, summer will be here much longer than I would like in California. It isn't helping seeing the beautiful fall clothing collections, the cute boots and the gorgeous jackets while I tromp off to the pool in my bikini to get some relief from the heat. 
In the meantime, I will stare longingly at my fall lust list, wishing, hoping and praying that fall might show up a tinsy bit earlier this year so I can start indulging more layers, bundling up and cuddling up a bit more. Enjoy my Friday's Fancies fall lust list.
