It's been in the 70's and 80's for the majority of the past month and a half of the semester here in Syracuse. While I shouldn't be complaining - warm weather in Syracuse past September is rarer than a pair of flats from the Missoni for Target collection (why didn't I order off my phone? WHY?), so we should appreciate it as much as we can.
However, I can help but be a bit disappointed that my favorite season - Fall - is being cut short. Fall has the best foods, the lead up to the best holidays, some of my favorite weather, and of course, my favorite clothes. Fall is a season that should be filled with soft sweaters and classic boots, creating simple but chic ensembles for class, dining out, or lounging in your dorm. Cardigans, pullovers, patterned and solid - sweaters will always make you feel cozy and comfortable. Check out some of my favorite sweaters, all from J. Crew (my fashion heaven), below.
A good pair of boots is also a must for the season. I'm personally obsessed with riding boots, especially knee-high pairs. Riding boots are practical for the season, and in neutral colors, can go with most outfits. I'm eyeing a two-toned pair from Frye currently, seen second from the right below, among my other favorite pairs for the season.
