I don’t know about where you live, but we had one of our hottest days of summer yesterday. This is always a funny time of year for clothes. It’s still summer and warm weather is still going strong, and yet Labor Day is over and those darn Pumpkin Spice Lattes are already out. My plan is to continue with my normal summer pieces while adding in fall colors and planning for cooler evenings. Here are three outfits I pulled together that I’m dying to get my hands on. My color of choice? One of Pantone’s colors for fall 2014: Cypress.
How do you transition your clothes from summer to fall?
I don’t know what possessed me to do something besides laundry, homework, and dog park duties while I was home on weekends last year. I was looking back at old posts, and now I feel like an inspiration failure this year. I mean, I had a strangely high number of fall recipes and things available to you last year. Go Jenn from 2012!
Slacker 2013 Jenn has done none of this. So instead, lets recap some ideas from the past and get those creative juices rolling.
It’s old news that I’ve been traveling around Long Island for the past few weeks. I made a promise to myself on my birthday that I would treat this travel season more like a vacation. It isn’t quite over yet, but I’m pretty confident that I’ve been doing pretty well so far!
I’ve made a commitment to stop off at more cool places when I have free time, and I’ve tried quite a few new restaurants. Actually, my waistline would probably prefer it if I stopped doing that second one. (Spicy’s in Riverhead,NY- I’m looking at you!)
And that’s been most of my fall. What have you been up to?
I don’t know about you, but here in the northeast the weather is just starting to change to that cool, but sometimes sticky, fall weather. This means more rainy, muddy fall days will be here before we know it! If you’re looking for a new pair of rain boots this year, you should definitely check out Roma Boots.
Much like Warby, Roma concentrates on a one-for-one attitude. For every pair of boots sold, one is donated to a child in need. As if that wasn’t enough, they also donate 10% of all sale proceeds to the Roma For All Foundation to help Romanian children “break out of their cycle of poverty and despair”. This is a cause close to the hear of Roma’s founder, Samuel Bistrian, and if you have a few seconds, you should listen to his amazing story.
Did I mention the fact that they also donate school supplies during their boot drop off? I love the fact that I can help promote the ideas of empowerment, education, and breaking the cycle with a boot purchase. Sure those Hunters are great, but I’d much rather give back than buy for a brand. Would you buy from a company like Roma?
And don’t forget about other companies doing good things.
