Ah, fall. Nature’s encore in its concert of seasons. What’s not to love? We could list 100 reasons we love this season, but we managed to narrow it down to our top five — one for each of your five pockets.
1. Denim and layers
Confession: We wear denim year-round. But fall is when our blue jeans shine. They’re the perfect versatile base for all those fun layers we love to pile on — scarves, jackets, oversized cardigans … feeling cozy yet? This fall, we’re loving Curvy Fit for women and Modern Series for men.
2. Pumpkin everything
Think beyond the pie. From lattes to chili, pumpkin adds a delicious fall flavor to just about any dish … like these Pumpkin Pie Fudge Brownie Bars from How Sweet It Is. Oh my yum-ness.
3. Mother Nature — the perfect date venue
You don’t need to go far to have the perfect fall date night. The weather calls for cuddles. Check out our favorite budget-friendly fall date ideas here.
4. Leaf pile playgrounds
The gorgeous weather isn’t just for adults — it also creates opportunities for the kids. There’s nothing quite like the joy on a child’s face as they crunch into a pile of leaves. Parents, have no fear. There’s a reason we reinforce belt loops and knees to make our boys’ jeans durable. Play away!
5. An attitude of gratitude
Perhaps the main reason we love fall so much is because we do a better job of practicing gratitude. Here in the Lee office, the Thanksgiving season brings a positive energy that’s contagious. Challenge: Let’s keep this attitude of gratitude rolling into the winter months.
Whew. It was tough to narrow it down to five pocket-worthy reasons we love fall, but we made it through. What would you add to the list? Tell us in the comments below!
