When I think of fall, I think of apple picking, pumpkin spice lattes, and going to farmer’s markets and fairs in my straw hat and filling my favorite tote bag with locally made goods like goat soap and jam. While I am always sad that summer is over, I have to admit, I really love fall.
Maybe it’s the cool air that lends itself so well to wearing long pants again or maybe it’s because fall colors compliment my red hair so well. I’ve always been a fan of fall. (Shhh don’t tell my husband!) Beyond the cliche pumpkin-spice-everything train, there are so many other things I just love about FALL.
We all know 2020 has been such a sh*tshow of a year, so I think I like Fall most of all because I’m anxious for this year to come to a close. Something makes me hopeful that somehow 2021 will be better for everyone… better for the whole world. Something tells me next year won’t be as bad as this one and somehow, something will make things go back to feeling more “normal”.
I mean, c’mon, who doesn’t love sweaters and skinny jeans? Flannel shirts and comfy hoodies? Straw hats, scarves, and leather boots? It can definitely be argued that fall is the BEST season for fashion! I know it’s definitely MY favorite season to dress for. Layering is queen and accessories are limitless.
Tote bags are one of my favorite fall accessories because they are so versatile. You can dump all your beach essentials out of your tote bag and repack it with pumpkin spice lip balm, a cozy scarf, stylish sunglasses, a good book, and your Farmer’s Market coupons! Tote bags are a huge trend for 2020 as everyone has realized how useful they are. With so many stylish options to choose from now, there is no reason NOT to buy a new tote bag.
I’m going to try to find JOY this coming season as much as I possibly can! Fall officially starts in just a few days, but I’m going to sit back and sip my pumpkin spice coffee creamer right now. Because I can.
