The end of Summer, to me, means one thing. Finally, the ability to break out my leather(s) and hit the town running in some oversized knits, boyfriend flannels (literally), and all the black suede booties a girl can possibly keep inside one pre-war apartment.
Fall in the city,
is really extraordinary. When I look back to all my favorite memories since I've moved here, most of them took place sometime during the Fall; Sundays in Central Park with the NYT Crossword, a long stroll to Bushwick with Rob and a coffee, dinners on the roof under lights, with blankets, spiked hot cider on the stove, friends over - you get the memento.
Now that the weathers made the total shift, I'm beyond excited about hot ciders, leather pants, cozy sweaters, and for once - changing up my hair and make-up. For a girl like me who's been doing the same beauty routine since, well, practically the day I first started wearing make-up, taking the time to try new techniques is pretty exciting. I've been relying on wash-and-go curls and a faux undercut all Summer long, and thanks to Candice, am now able to throw on a cat-eye for some effect. A little shimmer goes a long way, so does being open to trying new things. I, for one, can't wait to go for it this Fall. What about you guys?
