Sometimes summer in WNY seems like a shock to the system. We aren’t accustomed to 80 degree days, we are much more familiar with 8 inches of snow. I always enjoy the 3 months of sunshine, but I welcome the brisk fall air and pumpkin flavored everything.
Fall just feels so comfortable. I love to bundle up in an oversized sweater and scarf. Fall clothing is like receiving a giant hug from your favorite clothing store.. after you were constantly disappointed in how shorts and tank tops fit. Knit fabrics and forgiving stretchy leggings are just the reminder that we all needed that clothing can be cute and comfortable.
Fall is the beginning of something new. In years past it always meant a new school year and my birthday. Although the latter remains the same, this fall I started a new job as the Assistant Manager at Lindt Chocolate instead. It’s challenging and fun. It’s constantly working with people and learning new things.. I’m surrounded by chocolate -oh darn- and I love it. I help people purchase a treat, but not just a snack, rather high quality chocolates can be the little bit of happiness they need in their day. It’s the happiness I needed in my life.
One of the more difficult aspects of my job is the dress code. That may sound silly but it’s really testing my creativity when it comes to figuring out new ways to wear all black all of the time. Sometimes in fashion I find that I like an article of clothing because of the outlandish print, not necessarily the style. Bright polka dots or stripes suck me in constantly.. Now fit and cut are my biggest priority when it comes to work clothing. Is this adulting?
