I’ve never been shy about sharing how Fall is by far my favourite season. While I love a good, hot summer, and all the outdoor activities that come with it, there’s something so magical about the Fall to me as we move into the months of September and October.
As a child, I moved around quite a bit and so new schools, new friends and new things to learn were a major part of my growing up. With that, moving into September always brought with it new and exciting things, feeling like it was the one time of year where everything got to start all over fresh again.
With all that in mind, there is more than just a sense of ‘newness’ that fosters my love of all things autumn. So thought we’d share some of our favourite things here at Sadi & Sari that really make us wrap our arms around the Fall months.
First, I’d be remiss not to gush around all things pumpkin! From the ever popular Starbucks PSL (pumpkin spice latte - and if this is new to you, you need to go out and get one right now!), to pumpkin patches, orange hints in clothing (and you’ll catch that vibe in our collections this season), and pumpkin pie during Thanksgiving. From September to November there’s hints of pumpkin everywhere! All your favourite online influencers will be taking their photos in pumpkin patches, rocking their best hats, blanket scarves and distressed jeans - and we’ll be there with them! For Fall, pumpkin everything is absolutely our favourite.
Second, while it may be difficult to dress for in early September, the cool mornings and warm afternoons are our next favourite thing. Theres’ nothing better than layering on a great pair of jeans, that sassy new pair of Fall boots and bringing a super cute sweater to top off your best graphic tee. The change in weather brings with it a change in the leaves, which make for the absolute perfect backdrop for taking family photos, gorgeous autumn inspired weddings, and just plan and simply the best Fall fashions!
Third, who doesn’t love a great outing to do some apple picking in a nearby orchard? A close second to pumpkin patches and corn mazes (often found at these orchards too!), apple picking is one of our favourite activities and such a fabulous and fun way to spend time with loved ones too. You can catch us with a super cute apple crate, fabulous toque, our best ever plaid ensemble so we can stay warm but look cool while picking something super healthy - or sipping a delicious cider. This seasons is always reminiscent of mom baking apple crisp or pies in the late afternoon after school - something we often relive when there’s a scent of of cinnamon in the air.
And lastly, who doesn’t love a great sense of family the Fall season brings to us. From building your new ‘family’ communities at school, enjoying turkey with mashed potatoes and gravy together, to getting dressed up in fun costumes later in October… Fall is definitely a time to come together.
And so there you have it - a list of some of our favourite Fall things. We hope you get to relive some of your favourites this season too!
