Falling Gracefully With the Autumn Leaves.
Now that the Summer has come and gone, the changing of the seasons is upon us and it is officially time to make changes from the hot Summer scorchers to the cool Fall afternoons. This means pulling out those boxes of Fall decor, putting bright summer clothes into the rear of the closet, and preparing for the frigid weather that will insist we reach for a warm, cozy sweater and hot apple cider. While the change of weather and more hectic schedules may change the pace of life, this doesn’t mean that Fall should not be just as refreshing and sporadic as Summer. Read on for some ways to spice up the autumn lifestyle and keep the sun shining both indoors and out.
With the coming of a new time of year, it’s not just the season changing. Our days get busier, our wardrobe changes, activities outside of responsibility appear scarce, and our taste buds change gears towards home-cooked comfort foods. These three suggestions below will help guarantee direction towards a comfy, cozy and exhilarating Fall season.
While we sometimes tend to lean towards darker colors in the colder seasons, switch it up and go for brighter fall tones. Bring on the layers and pair those fun, Summer dresses with tights, boots and a light jacket. In the market for a new Fall pea coat? Be on the look out for bright reds, oranges, and yellows instead of the average black and grey winter regulars.
