Cozy Fall Morning Routine
Guys. There’s nothing better than fall to me.
I think I’m a very weather sensitive person, and when the air is crisp in the morning and the leaves begin to change, I am definitely a more chipper version of myself. I think living in Texas practically all my life has taught me to really appreciate the cooler temps!
I got some really cute slouchies in the mail from my friends at The Mint Julep Boutique, and I wanted to model them for you today while I show you my cozy fall morning routine.
I typically stick to this routine on Wednesday’s and weekends because – no class! It’s so nice to wake up a bit slowly and do things to really set the right intentions for the day – and those intentions are “I’m not getting out of my fuzzy socks!”
6:15 am Wakeup
Guys. Even without an alarm, I’m up around 6:15-6:30. (Dang you internal alarm clock!) I give myself time to adjust to being up while it’s still dark by turning on my candle warmer for my fall candles, making my bed, and drinking some water to hydrate.
6:45 am Get some fresh, fall air
My favorite thing about fall is that my morning workouts are SO much more enjoyable. For a great fall workout, I like to do a long run (I’m trying to run around 8 miles at the moment) at my favorite park. If I’m running, I’ll have some peanut butter toast with a banana before I leave. If I’m home for the weekend, Chip loves an early morning walk at sunrise!
8:00 am Breakfast and emails
I love an easy, healthy breakfast. With my typical green tea, I love either oatmeal or fried eggs and fruit. I’ve also been making a smoothie which I shared the recipe for on Monday. This is the perfect time to answer emails, check in with my Facebook groups, and maybe even read a little bit for class since I feel like there’s always reading I need to get done.
8:30 am Shower
8:40 am Get dressed in a cozy fall outfit
My go-to is something super comfy, but something that can be dressed up to wear out if I need to run an errand or have a meeting for coffee. That’s definitely the perfect fall outfit for me!
Right now, I’m obsessed with my new slouchies! The regular price is $48, but the Mint Julep Boutique is offering them to my readers for only $24 if you follow the links in the post to purchase!
I got the wine colored one because I knew it would go perfect with a dark fall lip and some accessories, and could easily be dressed up with jeans and booties. The gray and red one is perfect for Houston (or Arkansas) game days! I’m lame this season and haven’t made it to every game, but some I’ll watch on my laptop from the comfort of my own home.
9:00 am Make a hot drink to have while I work on assignments
I’m a sucker for a steaming cup of dark chocolate cocoa. I have some just from the neighborhood HEB and it’s such a treat! I also love tea, and there’s some great Vanilla chair tea that I buy during fall that is the perfect fall drink! Although, nothing wrong with hoping over to Starbucks for a chai tea or pumpkin spice latte.
11:00 am Plan out blog content and take any blog photos necessary
This is one of my favorite parts of the day because I get to stop and play photographer. I feel like I work at a one-woman magazine where I’m photographer, editor, copy writer, and the PR department all in one. I did a day-in-the-life post a little while ago explaining what a typical day of blogging looks like for me, so you can go ahead and give that a look. Typically, it’s a lot of emails, strategizing, and selfies!
12:00 pm Head to the public library for studying and reading
I’ve found that I need to adopt my one go-to place where I feel creative and peaceful and for me that’s the library! I recently got a library card and check out a different book every week. Especially in the fall, I like to have a book, so that when I have free time I can sit outside and read. So far I’ve read 1984 and The Bell Jar, and both have been amazing. I’ll study for an hour or so and then take a quick reading break to relax.
What does your fall morning routine look like?
