Too hot for fall

With back-to-school well under way and Labor Day bringing an official close to summer we look to fall. Oh, how we want to dress in our wooly clothes and tailgate by the fire. Unfortunately, the temperatures are still at the 90+ degree mark here in Dallas. So what to do?

How about taking a note from the leaves on the trees? Change gradually. We can turn in our light bright colors for fall's darker colors of browns, purples, and golds while still keeping the fabrics lightweight. In addition, change the scents in the air. Go from the spring florals to richer, spicier scents of cinnamon, cloves and oranges. Plus, don’t forget the visual changes at the house. A few pictures and pillow switched out will tempt you to light the fire at night. (But, maybe wait just a little longer on lighting the fire?)
