Styling November'20: Styling your Front Porch for Fall

Styling November'20: Styling your Front Porch for Fall  

Each passing day, I make a mental note, toward evening, that the sun sets earlier & earlier. While we are long past Labor Day & Daylight Savings {fall back one hour} ended this year on November 1st, summer couldn't be farther away. 

Is it annoying that I can't fully embrace fall? Winter? To some, probably. To others who love to chase warm sunrises, rinse the chlorine off their toasted skin, & can never seem to shake that last bit of sand from the bottom of their bags get it. I am sure. 

Thanks to the nationwide pandemic & Daylight Savings ending for the year, those days are long in the rear-view mirror. At least for now. Right now, it's cozy home vibes, blooming potted mums, warm pumpkin pie, & feel-good Nancy Meyer home movie nights. 

Styling November this year, I am ushering fall over to the front porch & sharing just how to make autumn feel at home on your doorstep. Decorating your outdoor space such as the front porch two things help elevate that space into a welcoming autumnal area; mums & pumpkins. Before selecting your mums & pumpkins, settling on a fall color scheme will help pull your outdoor space together. 

Selecting two {three tops} corresponding colors will help you when deciding on everything from the mum color, pumpkin colors, welcome mat, & so forth. Additionally, knowing how to edit your outdoor space will help the final look feel more cohesive. 

How to decorate your front porch for fall with pumpkins and mums

Before any of the fall elements were added here, we washed the front porch down & edited away some decor/furniture that was out here during the spring/summer. This way, when the fall elements were added, the porch didn't look cluttered. After everything has been prepped, cleaned & decorated, selecting a seasonal wreath for the front door ties everything together nicely. 

This fall/winter magnolia leaf wreath is timeless & will take the porch's style right into Thanksgiving. 

Add mums and pumpkins to your front porch for fall decorations

We both love to decorate with all the things you find at a Connecticut farm, apples, pumpkins, little pumpkins make sure decorating on a wall, Indian corn, hay bale, gourds.  All the colors that mums are available during the season too.  It is always fun bringing out the Halloween/Harvest box of seasonal things too to decorate!-The creators of the brand, Sailor-Sailor

Styling November Houndstooth Dress

Aside from the front porch's fall style, I was happy to style a dress from Sailor-Sailor's Fall 2020 Collection.  This Sailor Sailor dress is called the Grace Dress & it's so easy-breezy to slip on & wear whether you want to dress it up or style it down. 

We love our new Caroline dress!  We took our #1 Marina dress and gave it a long sleeve and added a ruffle on the cuff!  Fits a lot of figures!  Classic with a preppy twist!--Sailor-Sailor 

I paired it with a pair of low-rise Tommy Hilfiger {old, sorry} duck-boots & a knit Kate Spade {a few season's old} beret. My glasses are from Phonetic Eyewear

Since houndstooth is such a timeless pattern, I can see myself wearing this dress at different times of the year as it can be easily interchanged with different accessories to match the season.
