Fall is the perfect season. It is still sunny, yet cool enough (but not freezing) to break out the sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes. Take advantage of the best season (in my opinion, at least) with the following activities.

1. Embrace The Holiday Drinks

Pumpkin spice lattes, salted caramel mochas, apple cider… yum! Maybe it is only because they are only available for three months out of year, but there is something seriously magical about fall beverages. Have a scavenger hunt to find the best fall-flavored latte in town and try out all of your local coffee shops (probably an activity done best not in a single day).

2. Crafts And Decorations

There are a ridiculous amount of crafts that are great decorations, fun to make, and start getting you in the holiday spirit. Although Halloween just ended – which is always fun to decide what costume to be, how to carve your pumpkin, and all of the spooky decorations – there is still Thanksgiving! How creative can you get with turkeys??

3. Enjoy The Fall Scenery

The collage of orange, red, and yellow leaves falling to the ground are gorgeous, and never lasts as long as you think it will! Finding a scenic road to drive, or a tree-lined street to admire and walk down, is one way to (as cheesy as it sounds) enjoy nature’s beauty. This will also help you relax and clear your mind from any current stress.

4. Go To A Pumpkin Patch

Pumpkin patches are a fantastic place to find the best pumpkin! Pumpkins aren’t just for Halloween. They are great additions to any Thanksgiving setting, especially for the perfect touch for any visiting family members to see. While you are there, go on a hayride or get lost in a corn maze. And when you find the perfect pumpkin or finally find your way out of the maze? Enjoy a caramel apple and sip some hot apple cider. Perfection!

Enjoy the fall while it lasts! It is getting cold fast and winter is soon approaching! What is your favorite fall activity?

Adjusting Your Wardrobe For Fall Fashion

The leaves are falling, the weather is cooler, and people are wearing leggings as pants once more. We’re not in Kansas anymore, Toto, we’ve officially arrived in Fall. Fall is my favorite time of year – from pumpkin spice lattes (heaven in a cup), to perfect weather, and to rock my new school clothes. But if you’re like me, even though the temperature’s dropping, you’re probably not ready to put away the crop tops you wore all summer. Not to fear! Here’s how to mix your summer wardrobe into your fall wardrobe so you don’t have to grieve the passing of your daisy dukes just yet.

1. Mix, Don’t Match

While the weather cools down, only one half of your body should be uncovered at a time. Not only will you freeze if you wear a tank top and shorts when it’s 50 degrees outside, but there’s something about the fall that makes showing off obscene amounts of skin just not quite as classy as it did in the summer. Therefore, tank tops and t-shirts should be worn with pants. Bonus points if they’re colored pants, which instantly will put your outfit in cute territory. Wearing long sleeves on top totally justifies wearing itty bitty summer bottoms. Oversize sweaters look great with a skirt and flats. Flannels and shorts make for a unbeatable casual (and comfy) look. Avoid wearing knee-high boots (especially leather ones) with shorts. This will rarely look good since they make your legs look shorter than they really are.

2. Cardigans

Make cardigans your best friend. Cardigans are great for transitioning through those awkward days where it’s just chilly enough to add on the layers, but too hot for full-on sweaters. Also, if you have a crop top that just needs to be worn, wearing high-waisted bottoms and a cardigan keeps it classy.

3. Sneakers

Wearing sneakers instead of sandals keeps your toes warm and is a great excuse to show off your new Tom’s. Scarves are another Fall accessory which will add hotness (in both the sexy and temperature kind of way) to your outfit.

But the most important thing to remember is this: as long as you’re confident in what you’re wearing, you’ll look fantastic. So go put on a scarf, enjoy a pumpkin latte, and enjoy the fall weather you’re ready to dress for.

Yes, it’s only the beginning of October, but I’m sure students are already counting down until the end of the semester. I want to share with all of you impatient students some fun Fall daycations that you can take during this semester to make the school days fly by. Taking little breaks to get away won’t have you yearning for winter break so much.

1. Visit A Farm

Drive off campus for the day and go to a farm. Especially for those who live in the city, this can be extremely fun! Go pumpkin picking, drink some apple cider, or go for a hayride. It’ll feel like you went on a vacation to a completely different place even though it’s only an hour outside of the city! A lot of farms have haunted houses and mazes in October!

2. Go To An Amusement Park

In the Autumn months, amusement parks such as Six Flags and Hershey Park turn the entire park into a haunted experience. We may be too old for trick-or-treating but this is the perfect type of excitement college students need. Plus it is a lot cooler, so you don’t have to sweat the entire day!

3. Football Parties

Football season can be a lot of fun, even if you’re not a die-hard football fan! A lot of people throw football parties so get in on that and have some fun. Or throw a party yourself.

4. Enjoy The Foliage

Fall is the perfect season to enjoy being outdoors. The fall foliage is a beautiful thing to experience and the weather is a lot cooler. Go for a hike or a walk outside. If you’re not much of a hiker or a walker, the fall colors can also make a romantic atmosphere; so grab some food and take your date on a picnic.

5. Camping

Although most people think camping is a summertime activity, it doesn’t have to be. It can be a little chilly in the mountains this time of year, but it just means you can sit in front of the fire and cuddle under the blankets. Also, because of the cooler weather, there are LESS BUGS!

Who says you can’t have fun just because Summer is over? That’s 5 things you can do to have fun and speed up the Fall semester. Space these activities out and before you know it, it will be December!
