Tomorrow marks the official start of the fall season, and I, for one, am super excited, and not just because my birthday is two weeks away. I live for fall: smelling pumpkin spice lattes and hot chocolate wafting through the air, while wearing my favorite leather jacket, black jeans and boots. Oh, how I adore boots!
To celebrate the start of fall, the ladies here at BUST shared their favorite (and for some, their least favorite) things about the season.
I hate everything about fall. Fall = fail.
Laurie, Creative Director:
I love pumpkin flavored treats, à la Babycakes pumpkin/maple donuts, wool tights, boots, sweaters, leaves, pumpkins, Halloween (duh), it’s almost Thanksgiving, it's not too hot so baking is not a drag, ditto on making beef stew.
Molly, Senior Editor:
Fall's my favorite season, so there are too many things to list. But among other things, I love checking out the leaves in New England, eating pumpkin-flavored everything, wearing boots and tights, and sleeping with the windows open when it first starts getting chilly.
Emily R, Managing Editor:
Breaking out my snuggly hoodie, creepy movie marathons in October, and Day of the Dead decorations in the East Village, where I live.
Lan, Senior Designer:
I can't think of a better way to spend a Saturday during fall than picking apples, eating donuts, and drinking apple cider. It's probably the fall-iest thing you can do.
The crisp air: I swear, everything — even New York City — smells cleaner.
The clothes: Time to take your coats, scarves, and boots out of storage!
Callie, Craft Lady:
Fuck fall, you are the death of summer. Bite me. I do love Halloween, but it would be better if it weren’t in the fall.
Emily A, Director of Advertising & Marketing:
Flannel pjs, hot cider and comfy wool sweaters!
Bridgette, Events & Promotions Coordinator:
The BUST Magazine Craftacular at World Maker Faire on September 29 & 30, OBVIOUSLY. Also, my Halloween sweater (pictured below), girls in leather jackets, guys in leather jackets. Everyone looks sexy in a leather jacket. And shorts with tights, Jane Lane-style, and listening to the Misfits every day starting October 1.
Sound off in the comments and let us know what you love about fall!
