Isn't it weird how we all lose our shit for fall?
I'm as guilty as the next (well maybe not quite as guilty, but I did eat Pumpkin Cheerios for breakfast.) However, I'll never drink a Pumpkin Spice Latte because they taste like a cup of pumpkin sugary syrup mixed with a little bit coffee- to me.
I feel like we have this brief window of time where it's fun to transition from tank tops to thick sweaters and then BOOM it's winter. And it stops being fun real fast. Even yesterday I had to add a jacket AND a big scarf for my morning Harlow walk and I was not happy about it.
Yes I love fall, but I don't exactly do well with the end of summer either simply because I know what it's implying. Winter. Winter is coming. Winter anxiety is a very real thing in Chicago. People start talking about it in August already.
We say things like, "Gotta enjoy these days while they're here, won't be long before..." Or "remember winter 2014? I just hope it's not like that," or "heard the cold's going to move in early this year, gonna be a long one."
We are always talking about, thinking about, and worrying about winter, once mid August rolls around.
But enough about winter. It's not here yet, so I'm going to tuck that dark thought away for now and move onto much better things.
Like the fact I've decided it would be fun to give one of you the chance to win a few of my favorite fall items.
1. I've already talked about this cardigan 100 times and I think you all need to share in the joy of it with me. You could also swap for this one as it's another one I've bought in a few colors already this season...
3. The perfect fall booties from Alice & Wonder.
4. And of course, my COZY AF T-Shirt.
