As the sky turns a dull grey and all the leaves fall off the trees, all I want to do is don a comfy sweater and drink a cup of tea. I’m not a huge fan of the cold weather but I have to admit I love all of the furry scarves and the riding boots that come with it.
Because I had this whole week off from school because of Hurricane Sandy I had a lot of time to scroll through my favorite store’s websites. I rediscovered my love for Topshop and realized that I want EVERYTHING they sell (it’s an unhealthy obsession!)
The sun is warm, the breeze is chilly; it’s definitely autumn. I dug out my favorite fall riding boots and my army green blazer and hit the town! My sister too these pictures of me outside of the Fashion Institute of Technology where we’ve been taking classes on Saturdays. To say the least WE LOVE IT. The classes are college level and they totally have been opening my eyes to so many different things I didn’t even know existed! All of this hands on experience is making me fall more and more in love with fashion!
As the sun sets quicker and the cool breeze rolls in, it is really starting to feel like fall (my favorite season!). The weather we are having in New York is perfect! It’s about 70 degrees and sunny everyday! It’s warm enough to be comfy but it’s chilly enough to be cozy.
In the spirit of this new season I wanted desperately to have some nice, warm hot chocolate, but it was hot in my house! I decided to try out a crazy idea my friend had to FREEZE the hot chocolate!!
All I did was mixed a hot chocolate packet with water and stuck it in the freezer for about an hour. When I took it out, I mixed it up again with my spoon. It looked like a hot chocolate slushie! I topped it off with some whip cream and chocolate syrup and, bam, I had a delicious frozen hot chocolate! yummmm.
So as much as I love the summer (and trust me, I loooove the summer), I am really looking forward to fall fashion. There is just something about wearing plush faux fur in the chilly autumn air that makes the season oh-so wonderful.
I love looking forward to the cable knit sweaters and the corduroy skinnies, the combat boots and the knee-high riding boots, and even the leather moto-jacket and the super snuggly scarves. But what I like most about are the colors. I love the emerald, the chocolate, the maroon, and the gold colors of the new garments hanging in store windows and on chic bodies. I also adore the orange and red of the leaves and the grey tone of the sky.
By late August and early September, I am ready to trade in my florals for more seasonal patterns. One of the new trendy fall patterns is oversized polka dots (along with the traditional plaids and muted stripes). Lucky for me I spotted the polka-trend prematurely and bought a super fab button-down sheer polka dot shirt from Forever 21 on my last shopping spree! Who knew it would be perfectly in-style for the fall 2012?!
Even my favorite mag, Seventeen, spotted the polka dot trend! YES!
