Fall is my favorite season by far. It’s when my classes start, the weather changes, I can start wearing comfy clothes, and watch football all season long. One of the things I really love about fall is the colors and how rich and warm they are. So sorry winter, summer, and spring, but, there are too many reasons to love fall and here are a few of my favorites.
1. Comfy Clothes
The moment the temperature starts to drop, it’s time for comfy clothes. Don’t get me wrong I love summer dresses, skirts and bathing suits, but they don’t compare to slipping on a comfy sweater and some leggings. And don’t get me started about scarves. There is nothing I love as much as getting all comfy and cozy in some fall perfect clothing
As soon as the leaves start to change colors and fall from the trees, I know it is officially fall. When I was a kid it meant that I got to run around and jump into piles of leaves with my sister, but now it means being surrounded by the warm yellow, red, and oranges of the leaves. (But I am still tempted to jump into piles of them!)
Even though I drink iced coffee in summer, there is nothing like a nice warm coffee to wake me up in the morning. And if there is one thing that guarantees fall is here, it is when Starbucks starts serving their Pumpkin Spice Latte. I have not met a person who has not become obsessed by this delicious fall inspired drink.
I get just as excited about Halloween now as I did when I was little. Even though I am unfortunately too old to go trick-or-treating, I love planning and picking out a costume. I always try to come up with a creative and unexpected costume, and putting it together with my friends is so much fun. This year, my boyfriend and I are going as the Sun Drop Couple.
5. The Colors
Fall colors are so welcoming and warming. Colors like deep reds, forest greens, and gold can’t be worn as often in seasons like spring and summer so I take full advantage of them during the fall. Just surrounding myself with those colors makes me feel more in a fall mood. So go out and buy a burgundy sweatshirt or put some brown and gold decorations in your bedroom to fully take advantage of fall colors.
6. New TV Shows
I am a TV junkie, so I get very enthusiastic about the new fall lineup each year. All of my favorite shows are coming back and I make sure to check out all of the series premieres of new shows. The fall TV show lineup is the perfect way to relax after a long day of classes, and when I combine it with comfy fall clothing and a nice cup of coffee, it honestly doesn’t get better than that.
So I am always down for a nice snuggling sesh, but I feel the need to snuggle more often during fall. When it gets cold at night, there is nothing more comforting than snuggling up under the covers with my boyfriend. And even when he isn’t there, I snuggle up with piles and piles of blankets and pillows surrounding me.
Hayrides epitomize fall to me. At my school, all the different student organizations take hayrides to a bonfire in the middle of the woods with music, food, and plenty of fun. Hayrides are something that are unique to fall and I can’t imagine fall without climbing on up in a hayride with all of my best friends and having the time of our lives.
