A Floridian's Perspective on Fall

It's that time of year when everything pumpkin spice is back (visit your nearest Trader Joe's for confirmation), sweaters are being pulled out of the dark corners of your closet to cozy up in, and we're trading in our sandals for booties.


I live in Florida. A.K.A. The never-ending summer.

This Floridian's true perspective on fall? It's my favorite season of the year, but not because the temperatures are any nicer and the layers are coming on.

Shopping during this time of year is almost like a slap in the face. EVERYWHERE has the most adorable sweaters, outerwear and boots (most of which are now on sale) and you can't help but feel like you're missing out on the party. To be completely transparent, I went to the mall this past weekend and purchased 5 sweaters. Why? Because I have this thing for sweaters. Like... who doesn't? Will I ever get to wear these living in Florida? There's a high probability that they will never see the light of day - with the exception of being worn to my freezing office environment. And that's how it goes.

Everything pumpkin spice is exciting! Because if we can't carve our pumpkins outside without sweating like animals, at least we can have our fall season in a cup. Think I'm kidding? It's 8pm and currently 82 degrees outside. BRR.

As much as I wish I could be rocking my boots right now, the thought of foot sweat just makes me cringe. Boot season is that blessing in disguise where you can not worry about your pedicure for a couple of months and nobody will know. At least, that's how it's supposed to be.

While this post sounds extremely sarcastic/depressing (sarcastic humor is my way of life), it really is my favorite time of the year. It's the time where L and I get to travel the world and disconnect from all the craziness that we endure every day with work. We get to explore new countries - ones that experience seasons!! So we get a bit of fall and winter during our trips. We're always a little sad when we have to return to the Florida heat, but we always thank the big guy upstairs for giving us the opportunities of a lifetime to experience some amazing places.

So what does this gal think about it "officially" being fall? I say BRING IT ON, BABYThe world is waiting.


x, B
