Why we are Ready for Fall!

summer1summer3summer4summer2We’ve been seeing articles everywhere about the “Summertime Blues” and how the end of summer can drastically impact your mood. While we can both understand the reasons why this might occur, Sass and Sweetness are in a different boat over here! We are actually happy to let summer go and welcome fall with open arms. So we are sharing some of our last summer pictures and sharing why we are ready for fall!

We recently posted a picture mentioning the end of summer and we received a comment by someone who got very technical with things. They made sure to let us know that summer doesn’t end until September 21st… and while we appreciate this person for stating the true facts (there’s sarcasm here), we [mentally] feel that summer ends when August ends and when the school year starts. Neither of us are in school, but it’s just a subconscious thought that we automatically reset and get back in the groove of things when school goes back in session.

Fall is personally Sweetness’ favorite season but there are so many things that we can both agree that Fall offers. It’s time for a new start, a new beginning. Not in a New Year’s resolution type of way, but we seem to get back on a regular schedule and be more structured… again it must be the subconsciousness of “going back to school”.

It allows for new outfit changes and to be those basic bitches that we are… the leggings, over the knee boots, cozy sweaters, and structured hats. Do we dare say we are excited for pumpkin spice lattes too? Well we generally don’t drink those (just like toooo much sugar) but yes – it’s the pumpkin spice everything and the color of the leaves changing that is more romantic and cozy.

Though the temperature is dropping, the outdoor activities are now different than just going to the beach. There’s Oktoberfest, Chowder fest, and pretty much any other type of festival under the sun. We can go to pumpkin patches, apple picking, and eat apple cider donuts without having to worry about being in a bathing suit anytime soon. And we can’t forget about some of our favorite shows that are starting in the Fall:

  • Ozark (August 31st)
  • Shameless (September 9th)
  • This is Us (September 25th)
  • Modern Family (September 26th)
  • Ray Donovan (October 28th)
  • House of Cards (November 2nd)

So goodbye summer and hello fall! We need an excuse to binge watch TV without feeling guilty it’s a beautiful, sunny day outside. Oh wait… it literally rained the whole summer so keeping our fingers crossed that fall also brings drier weather and frizz free hair!

Are you excited for fall or are you experiencing summertime sadness?
