Decorate Your Porch for Fall!

Now that we’ve passed Labor Day, it’s socially acceptable to start decorating for fall. Not that I’ve ever really gone by what’s “socially acceptable,” I guess. The past few years I’ve been all about the black and white buffalo plaid with pale green, and little to no orange. This year I’m back on the black, white, and orange team, and there are so many fun new shades of orange and white pumpkins! Today I’m sharing the beginnings of my own fall porch decor, 5 helpful tips for porch decor planning, and 16 fun Amazon picks to make your porch pop this season.

I always have tall black planters flanking our front doors, but in fall I fill them with mums. Unfortunately, they don’t really get enough sun there, but they usually last at least through Halloween. This year I added quite a few striped things (planters, pillows, pumpkins) to my typical black and white buffalo plaid fall decor. We still need to take our annual family trip to the pumpkin patch for our “big” pumpkins, and I’ll be putting those out on the porch for the season up until we carve them the week before Halloween. It looks a little sparse since I don’t have those out yet, but you get the idea.

Fall Porch Decor Tips

Before you go shopping to decorate your porch for any season, it’s a good idea to do a little planning. Here are some things to think through:

  1. Color Scheme – Choose three main colors that you want to feature. The colors should reflect the season, but should also look good with the color of your house, porch, and front door colors. Last year I chose black, white, and gray. This year I went with black, white, and orange. So original for fall and Halloween, I know. LOL
  2. Furniture – Are you going to swap out your porch furniture or use existing items? I kept my existing items up, but I think my fall porch would look a WHOLE lot cooler with the black bench and black rocker below. They are in my Amazon cart right now….
  3. Flowers and Pumpkins – What colors of flowers and pumpkins will blend well with your color scheme? Do you want them to pop (orange, yellow, red-burgundy) or blend in (peach, white, blue-gray)?
  4. Budget – How much do you want to spend? Take into consideration whether you’re buying things just for this year or whether you want to use them for years to come. Can they be repurposed for other seasons? Could they be used indoors? All things to think through before you buy.
  5. Maintenance – Mums and other flowers have to be watered. Pumpkins may begin to rot. Pillows can get bird poop bombed and might blow off the porch in a strong wind. Tall planters can tip over when big gusts come along. Decide how much time you want (and have) to put into maintaining your decor.

Warby Parker Try-On and Review 3

Warby Parker Glasses Frames Try On Title Image

Warby Parker Frame Try-On Session with 5 Frames

Warby Parker is my favorite place to look for stylish, on-trend glasses frames. They have so many styles to choose from, and lots of colors of each style to boot. I really enjoy their home try-on program for glasses frames, especially in these times where we’re not venturing out as much. I have tried out quite a few Warby frames and always have a tough time choosing because they’re all so good. Be sure to check out my first Warby try-on sessions as well as the second sets I tried — many of these frames are still available! Now, for today’s try-on.

How It Works

Warby Parker’s home try-on program is really simple. All you have to do is visit the Warby Parker website and pick out 5 frames you’d like to try on. There’s even a frames quiz if you want a little guidance on which frames might be good for you. They ship them to you, and you have 5 days to try them out. When you’re finished, you seal them back up in the box, slap on the prepaid postage sticker, and drop them in the mail. Easy-peasy!

The 5 Frames I Tried

Whenever I try on frames, I walk around the house a little to see them in different lights. So I’ll be sharing two different images of each frame: one in my bright kitchen, and one in a darker room in the house.

1. Remy in Marzipan Tortoise

The Marzipan Tortoise color really caught my eye in several frame styles, so I had to make sure I tried at least one pair in this color. The Remy style is bold and is fairly flattering for my angular, square-ish face, so it is a contender. The Remy style also comes in “Teal Tortoise,” which as you would expect has some flecks of teal.

2. Yardley in Tan Crystal Havana

The Yardley style is a little more classic. The Tan Crystal Havana color I’m wearing is cool and understated. It also comes in a Blue Marbled Tortoise color that is more bold.

3. Kenyon in Butterscotch Tortoise

These Kenyon frames are also on the classic side, shape wise. They are a little smaller than the Yardleys. This Butterscotch Tortoise is one of my favorite colors for frames, but they also come in Jet Black.

4. Weathers in Rye Tortoise

Of all of the frames I tried this time, these were probably my least favorite. They come in this Rye Tortoise color, but I really wanted to try them on in either of the other options: Periwinkle Crystal (light blueish crystal) or Rosemary Crystal (olive green crystal!). Unfortunately, the only color available for the home try-on was the Rye Tortoise, which is a little too dark for me. If I’m ever in the vicinity of a Warby Parker store, I may pop in to see if I can try on one the Weathers frames in of the crystal colors.

5. Durand in Crystal with Oak Barrel

Isn’t this color fun? This frame style comes in so many color options (11 to be exact!). The ones I tried have a pretty, tortoise-like rim inside of a clear crystal frame. I think the Durand style frame would look really good on just about any face shape.

How to Choose

I’m still on the fence about which glasses to get, but that’s okay because I won’t be ordering any until next summer when I get my eyes checked again and update my prescription. Who knows, maybe I’ll try a few more pairs.

In the meantime, Warby Parker suggests these fit guidelines for how to find the right frames for you:

Are they comfortable? That’s a great start.

Otherwise, a few rules of thumb:

  • Pupils should be near the center of the lens
  • Lenses shouldn’t extend past the side of your face
  • Eyebrows should not be inside the glasses
  • When you smile, your cheeks don’t push the frames up
  • Frames shouldn’t slide down your nose

They do have a “virtual try on” feature that is really helpful. You can see what you look like, and even turn your head a little, with some of the different frames, online. I’ve found also it helpful to take photos of yourself wearing each pair and then you can look at them side by side. Share the photos with others and get their opinions as well.

I’m still on the fence, but I am leaning toward #1 (Remy) and #3 (Kenyon) because it would be nice to have a more classic pair along with a bold pair. Both of those are noticeable, so it might also be good to have one of the “crystal” styles when I want my outfit to take center stage, not my frames. I’ll probably buy 2 pairs of frames when it’s all said and done: Which ones would you recommend?
