Sweater Weather Blog Tag

I love reading tag posts to learn more about my fellow bloggers, and since I also love doing them myself, I decided to play along with this tag I recently saw over at the fabulous Elle See’s blog. Read on for a quick look at a few of my holiday season favorites!

1. Favorite candle scent?

Right now, I love all of the Bath & Body Works holiday scents, especially Twisted Peppermint and Vanilla Bean Noel. Even more than the candles, I tend to go for body lotion and shower gel.

2. Coffee, tea or hot chocolate?

Hot chocolate. I’m not a big coffee drinker but will occasionally drink mint or green tea during the colder months. I also have a container of Mountain Thunder’s Kona Coffee Cherry Tea that I brought back from Hawaii and absolutely love.

3. Do you switch up your makeup routine for the season?

Not too much, although I sometimes gravitate toward darker shadows with a bit more sparkle. I also like wearing holiday-themed jewelry and nail polish.

4. Favorite Thanksgiving food?

Peppercorn salmon, sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie, all of which we had this year. I also miss my Nana’s delicious mashed potatoes, since no one can make them the way she did!

Peppercorn salmon makes for a delicious Thanksgiving dinner. 
5. Hats or scarves?

When it’s really cold, both, along with gloves. I can’t stand being cold!

6. Most-worn sweater? 

My cozy brown LOFT sweater cardigan, which I’ve been wearing for at least three seasons now. It’s warm and easy to pair with a dress or top.

7. Must-have fall nail polish?

Green and purple jewel tones, along with glittery top coats for the holidays.

8. Football games or jumping in a pile of leaves? 

Leaves and being outdoors earlier in the season, and staying inside with a good book once it gets colder. I never have been and probably never will be a football fan.

Staying warm indoors with a good book is my idea of a perfect snow day. 
9. Skinny jeans or leggings?

Leggings or yoga pants for days around the house, and a dress with tights or jeans for going out.

10. Boots or UGGs?

This is a silly question, as UGGs are, in fact, a type of boot. I have plenty of boots I love, but must admit I don’t even own one pair of UGGs!

11. What is your favorite thing about fall?

The start of the holiday season, complete with tasty food, pretty decorations and Christmas carols.

12. Do you have a song that gets you in the fall mood or a song you're loving at the moment?

I recently discovered Idina Menzel’s “Let It Go” from the new Disney movie Frozen. I truly love it and have been playing it nonstop!

13. What is the fall weather currently like where you live?

Winter has pretty much arrived here in the DC area, with two snow days already under our belts. I definitely think snow is pretty to look at, but don’t especially enjoy going out in it.

Tag, you’re it! What are a few of your own favorite things right now? 


  1. That peppercorn salmon looks amazing! What a fun tag post!

    1. Thanks, Morgan! That salmon is one of my all-time favorite dishes.

  2. So I hate wearing jackets (fun fact, right?) and this weather is killing me! I keep putting on a sweater, scarf and vest and it is just not cutting it. Kev makes fun of me because I would rather be gold than put on a coat. I have no idea why the coat phobia... I blame it on two years in Monterey!

    1. LOL! I hate having to wear a coat and all the usual bulky winter gear, too, but I'd rather put up with it than be cold. Windy days are the absolute worst!

  3. love that you did this! and learning more about ya!

  4. I heard Frozen was pretty darn good!

    1. Me, too! I'd love to go see it in theaters if I have a chance.

  5. This was a fun read!

    That is my favorite thing about fall too :)

    Haha, the boots or UGGS question is odd since you're right, UGGS are boots, lol.

    1. Thanks, Faith! The holiday season just can't be beat!

  6. Oh. Em. Gee!!!! I love that song!! I hadnt heard it before just now but i can tell i am going to be obsessed! I reallly want to see that movie! Thanks for sharing some interesting tidbits about yourself!!

    1. I know! Isn't it such an amazing song? I love Idina Menzel and once saw her in concert here in DC. I want to see Frozen, too!
