With weeks of temperatures near or past the 100 degree mark here in So Cal, the dropping thermometer (finally) let us cap off the weekend with our first glimpse of fall. So, I fled a house full of men and the onslaught of televised football games this past Sunday, in search of a cool breeze and a little retail therapy.
Looking to stack the deck, I hit up one of my favorite shopping spots- Roger's Gardens. It's hard to resist acres of landscape and styling ideas with an ocean view. Roger's is famous for seasonal and holiday displays and Sunday's visit did not disappoint.
Thinking of toasting the Fall harvest with a little soiree?
They also had a haunted boutique of sorts, overflowing with ideas for a Halloween fete. Check those out after the jump.
Hosting a houseful for Halloween?

'Til then..hope your week is off to an inspired start!
