OCTOBER 2023 FALL FASHION
Leaves are falling, Fall is calling!
A cold breeze taking over the warm, humid air, our go-to Starbucks order shifting from a Strawberry Açaï refresher to a Pumpkin Spice Latte, Spotify playlists switching from Bad Bunny to Girl in Red – the ‘Ber months call in for change. And as it does, that change occurs in our wardrobe too!
Now, let’s imagine this scenario: It’s Fall. The go-to Pinterest search is no longer “Pretty Summer Dress outfit” and is now “Cool Fall outfit”. There are multiple online shopping carts open on screen, each with over fifty items, and it’s difficult to choose what to buy.
Does this sound like you? We get it. While Fall shopping is exciting, it can also be overwhelming with the never-ending options for us to choose from, whether it be clothes or shops.
