So I'm going to do something sacrilegious and publicly exclaim that I'm excited for fall to come. I know that's borderline illegal/frowned-upon to declare lest I get lumped with all the "basic" girls but I earnestly am really excited! Summer has never been my number one jam, especially more so as I age. What does summer do for me, really? It makes me hot on the jammed city bus on the way into work, it puts me in outfits at the office that are not in line with the freezing air conditioner and it has me doing so many last minute pit stops before meeting with a client to ensure that my face is not dripping wet. Oh - and my most favorite part of the whole season - is sitting in conference rooms, overlooking the Bay Bridge and peering out the window to spy revelers flying kites and windsurfing. The FOMO is real and I don't need that negativity in my life. One of my best friends is a teacher and I repeatedly joke with her that I will unfollow/block her annually during the summer months on account of my jealousy.
But truth be told, I just like colder weather when it comes to clothes. The outfits are better with numerous layers and embellishments. And I love the way it feels to be inside when it's cold outside. I love fall career fashion - it is so the very best. Give me camel-toned briefcases! And dark scarves! Give me soup! And hot tea! And wool blankets! And vampier, darker makeup! Gimme, gimme, gimme.
Unfortunately for me, SF's "summer" is an indian summer and hits September to October. So I have a bit of a wait before we're entrenched fully. However, I still got my scarves at ready and my tea collection sitting right there on the sidelines, waiting to be called in to the game.
What's your favorite season?
