I have been ignoring every whiff of pumpkin spice, using blinders to avoid noticing the changing leaves, and have been treating the outdoors like my office’s overzealous AC unit, but I think it’s finally time to stop dragging my (high) heels and admit the truth: Fall is here. I know, I know… (denial is more than just a river in Africa for me). But you guys, as a cold-blooded half reptilian person, I just love warm weather so.freaking.much. If I could live in a place where the temperature was perpetually a sunny 75 degrees, I’d be the happiest of campers (so much so, I might even consider camping! JK, that’s crazy talk). That being said, fall does have its advantages: 1) Tights- For the comfort of not panicking if my legs are stubbly, I’ll take the 5 minute contortion act, 2) Deeper colors- The neons of summer are not exactly great for us Casper the Friendly Ghost types, but the deep, warm autumnal colors? That’s my jam. 3) I can finally swaddle myself in jackets, sweaters, and blankets with minimal teasing.
So, bring on the changing colors and the slightly cooler temps because I’m finally ready for you, Fall.
