Summer is over, people. We are back to the routine and fall is upon us.
To be honest, I’m not saddened by this seasonal change, this is my favorite time of year. Absolutely.
On the heels of two moths of vacationing, this really feels like when New Year’s should be celebrated. I make resolutions each September, and despite the fact that leaves are dead and falling from the trees, it feels like a season of renewal and fresh starts.
Fall is the best season. Hands down.
Spring is fine, there are fresh flowers and buds on the trees, but it’s still too wet and messy from a long winter. Winter’s snow and cold lasts just too long. Summer is fun to kick back and relax and escape, but Fall has the best of summer, with a little bit of spring, and winter tossed in. There are beautiful colors in the trees, the sun still shines, there’s a brisk bite in the air signalling a change, but there’s none of the dark mess that comes with winter.
Those crisp, clear days where you can still sit out on a patio with a fantastic turtleneck or scarf on are magical. There’s a reason the fall issue of Vogue is the biggest on the calendar – when it comes to fashion, fall is the best.
