Friday Fun: 5 Awesome Things to Look Forward to in Autumn

The Autumn Equinox arrived on September 22nd, and we couldn’t be more excited. We don’t know about you, but Autumn is one of our favorite seasons here at Shoplet! The arrival of a new season always manages to stir up fresh excitement in a city that’s constantly hustling and bustling. We are already so over waiting for trains on humid stale subway platforms and inhaling the stench of raw body odor in the crowd. (And just to add, that was merely a few weeks ago.) So, want to experience Fall in the wonderful city of New York (where Shoplet headquarters lie)? Here are 5 awesome things to look forward to in Autumn!

  1. #SweaterWeather 💁👢

With the temperature dropping, we finally have an excuse to pile on cute layers again! Layers are awesome because we can always add on a top jacket if we’re feeling chilly or take it off in the afternoons when the sun is out, striking a perfect balance. We’re super excited to snuggle into cozy sweaters, edge things up with moto jackets, hang out in oversize flannel shirts, and strut around in leather booties every day, all day.

2. Pumpkin Spice Lattes 🎃☕

Who doesn’t love waking up on a chilly morning with a fresh cup of coffee? Good thing Fall is also known as pumpkin season! There is a reason why pumpkin spice lattes are considered a classic fall drink- its mixed of delicious seasonal spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove has the ability to take you back time after time. Your favorite café is bound to brew tasteful cups of PSL, so what are you waiting for? Yes whipped cream, please!

3. Scenic Walks and Fall Foliage 🍃 🍂

The changing colors of the leaves are a right of passage in the transition to Fall. What better way to celebrate the new season than with a lovely afternoon stroll in Central Park to admire the falling leaves? Now there’s your perfect Instagram shot!

4. Hay Rides, Corn Mazes, & Apple Picking 🌤🌽🍎

As much as we love living in the hustling bustling city, it’s not doable without mini weekend getaways here and there! Besides, you can’t really celebrate Fall without some of these fun outdoor activities. There’s something reminiscent about visiting your local farm to enjoy a hay ride or getting lost in a corn maze. Apples are also in season for the first half of Fall, so it’s time to load up on this delicious fruit. We totally see apple cider and pies in your future!

5. Cozy Movie Nights 🎥🍿

It’s true, the city of New York never sleeps. However, that doesn’t necessary mean we like going out 24/7– especially when the nights get cooler. Besides, chilly nights gives us an excuse to stay indoors and relax. Doesn’t snuggling up with a blanket and a movie by a dimly-lit scented candle (the best we can do, since fireplaces aren’t really a thing around here) sound wonderful?
