It’s time for another splurge vs. save post, because we love looking good for less! If you’re ITK when it comes to this year’s seasonal trends, then you know sporty skirts are all the rage this summer. This athletic chic look mixes preppy and practical pieces for a look that will take you from a morning on the courts to an afternoon lunch on the boat. Or just, like, running errands around town, dropping the kids off at camp, wistfully gazing out at your backyard wishing you had panoramic views of the Long Island Sound…whatever. See our summer splurge vs. save inspiration below.

Fall – we are officially ready for you! The kids are back in school, the weather is (finally) getting cooler, and the stores are breaking out their best autumn apparel and decor! We love Target because it is a one-stop shop for just about anything you could possibly need, and things you didn’t even know you needed. And when it comes to home decor, the options are aplenty! See some of Target’s gorgeous fall home decor below!

These moody floral arrangements in purples and reds bring an unexpected element to your entryway table, dining centerpiece, or decorative shelves! For an entryway table or office space, a simple and modern desk calendar will help keep you on track.

These gorgeous golden leaves in an amber vase scream “autumn”!! Add your favorite reed diffuser for a breezy, beautiful scent that permeates throughout your entire home.

These decorative vases in earthy autumn hues also make great accent pieces! Add faux or real flowers, or leave them empty and mix and match a few for an eye-catching design.

This artificial wreath is great for a front door! The deep green eucalyptus with white seed sprigs sprinkled throughout is a simple yet beautiful way to welcome guests to your home.

More stunning red floral arrangements! Complement the fall colors with a sparkling brown glass pumpkin, and keep your favorite room spray handy for easy refreshes throughout the day!

For a more rustic look, opt for this woven pumpkin bowl filler! Add a touch of modern elegance with a black and blood red floral arrangement, and a charcoal and black teak candle will soothe and relax.

Deck the halls for fall with blankets, pillows, and lots of little accent pieces like ceramic pumpkins and artificial greenery.

Snuggle up with your pumpkin spice latte and your favorite cozy pumpkin pillow!

And then complete the vibes with a pumpkin spice pillar candle. Mmmm, that’s good.

And if you’re already dreaming of Halloween, these fun patterned Midnight Moon and Ghost Train candles are calling your name!

Who is ready to break out all the autumn accessories?! We start getting excited for fall usually around the beginning of August, though we try to wait ’til September creeps closer to start our switch to all things fall. If you’ve been with us for a while, then you know all about Decocrated – the home decor subscription service that delivers a box of carefully curated decor to your door every season! This year’s fall box has come and gone and is unfortunately sold out, but Kristy is showcasing everything that was included so you can see exactly what this box is all about. If you’re interested in hopping on the Decocrated train, go grab your special Halloween add-on box before that one sells out too, or shop the winter box that’s also available now! Use our exclusive code DECO15 to score some extra savings!! See fall decor from Decocrated below.

An entryway table that we are seriously falling for! The rope basket, beige woven blanket, and gorgeous glass pumpkin are all from the Decocrated Fall 2023 box!

How gorgeous is this mantle setup? The white vase with artificial flowers is from this year’s fall box, while the mini pumpkins and the wooden lantern are from past Decocrated boxes.

Keep your shelf decor simple to really make the pieces stand out! The wooden frame is from a past Decorated box, and the “fall breeze & autumn leaves” insert is from this season’s box!

This simple striped throw pillow is the perfect accent on any couch! The fun tassels add a touch of personality, but this is an otherwise understated piece that can be mixed and matched and used all year long!

Fall is our favorite season for many reasons, but the cozy home decor is one of the main ones! Putting away the bright, airy summer decor and replacing it with warm, comforting autumn decor is the signal that the cool weather is right around the corner, and we are ready for it! Kristy recently redecorated her home for fall…see some of our favorite pieces below.

The fireplace exudes warmth and comfort, and this cozy fall decor that adorns the mantle is the perfect addition. The majority of this decor is from Decocrated, our favorite seasonal home decor subscription box! The pumpkin, wooden lantern, wooden sign, and the eucalyptus garland are all from Decorated. The gorgeous farmhouse clock makes for a lovely year-round focal point, and this refreshing willow candle looks as good as it smells!

Yellows and oranges are completed with bright whites on the living room shelves.

These handmade white chenille pumpkins are an adorable rustic way to bring autumn into your home.
They look clean and classy while still feeling like fall.

The year-round tree is officially decorated for fall! Decked out with faux fall leaves, wooden beaded garland, and sparkling orange ornaments, the look is completed with a beautiful burlap bow.

We love this mini pumpkin spice set a latte!! Pumpkin spice is the epitome of fall, so of course it deserves its own place on the shelves.

A-tisket, a-tasket, a brown and orange basket (or bowl, in this case)! These mini pumpkin bowl fillers add a dash of autumn to this carved wooden bowl. Get the whole look here.


Dress up an entryway table with autumn signs, a sophisticated desk calendar, and a harvest-inspired table arrangement with color-coordinated wooden beads and a candle all nestled inside a rustic wooden tray.

Is there any sweeter scent than the smell of pumpkin spice?? We think not. This festive candle will have your home feeling like fall in no time. Let it lounge in this metal and wood tray and fill it with lots of other fall decorations.

And if you’re looking to give your outdoor space an autumn-inspired upgrade too, check out this fall front porch makeover!!

Switch out your summer throw pillows for these pretty fall ones. These velvet pillow covers come in gorgeous earthy tones and add a pop of color when paired with these neutral rustic-style covers.

Decorate your shelves with a farmhouse-style tiered tray (it comes with the beads, too!) adorned with these adorable assorted faux pumpkins and complete the look with these wooden “FALL” tiles.

These ceramic vases filled with pampas grass make a perfect table centerpiece, and this “hello fall” sign looks great propped up on an entryway table or hung on the wall.

Add cozy finishing touches like a pumpkin-colored plaid blanket and a pumpkin chai-scented candle and you’ll be ready to cuddle up and relax on chilly fall evenings.

A fall wreath is a simple way to add a touch of autumn to any area of your home. Most commonly used to adorn a front door, wreaths can also be hung inside to bring the rustic outdoors into your home. Think of hanging one above a mantle or an entryway table, or used as a table centerpiece to hold a collection of candles or other fall decorations. See these pretty artificial autumn wreaths from Walmart below.

Reds, yellows, oranges, and browns make a wreath fabulous for fall. Berries, pumpkins, sunflowers, and maple leaves are great autumn accessories and add dimension and personality to any wreath. Get one with LED lights to add warmth, or opt for a fun Halloween one to up your spooky decor game.
