Fall in Alabama is a very nebulous thing, which is very frustrating to someone like me who loves cool weather. The temperature highs are in the 90s until about November, and all I want to do is put a sweater on my body and not sweat. Regardless of the disappointing weather we’ve been having, I’ve been doing lots of fall activities, such as baking pumpkin pie, making squash soup, and taking lots of photos with pumpkins. And I don’t even care that I’m being cliche. Fall makes me happy.
I’ve been wanting an overall dress like this one for a while but couldn’t find an ethically-made one anywhere. But as always, my favorite local thrift store came through for me. I stumbled upon this one while looking for some flannels before the weather cools off and the thrift store sells out. And the best part is that it was only $3.
Although I love thrift shopping all year, fall is my favorite season for it. From flannels to old man sweaters, you really can’t go wrong. I’ve also been really into the vintage shops on Etsy lately. They’re a really great way to get some cool fall clothes without supporting fast fashion or spending tons of money. Some of my favorites are Cosmic Nature Vintage and Project Object Vintage.
What’s your favorite fall thing?
