I am tempted to open with quoting Fetty Wap, but I probably shouldn’t. Beyond jamming to Trap Queen now, I thought I would introduce myself. My name is Emily and I am going to be a Style Guru for New York University here on CollegeFashionista for the fall semester. This is my second time interning with CollegeFashionista and boy, could I not be more excited.
Fall is filled with not just a few, but all of my favorite things. Yes, that includes the Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks (which finally has pumpkin in it), but there are more important matters at hand. Matters like thigh-high socks, chunky sweaters with cute elbow patches and glossy riding boots.
The Big Apple will be more like the Big Pumpkin starting…now. Did I forget about blanket scarves? What about the beloved plaid shirts or my favorite yellow rain jacket? Fall is colorful, but comfortable. Warm sweaters are in trend, but the temperature drops and cold weather comes out to play.
This is the time of year I wait for as a Fashionista, especially in New York. The cobblestone runways come to life with everyday models rushing to work or class while still wearing killer outfits. I will be running after fellow Manhattanites while trying not to spill my PSL, but it’s all about the hustle.
I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait for that October morning with an overcast sky, only lit up by the changing colors in the trees, that grants you the pleasure of cuddling into your worn-in joggers and favorite pullover. Topping things off with that speckled beanie you stole from your sister and those gorgeous Nike sneakers.
I know you can taste the cinnamon and nutmeg from the warm cappuccinos in SoHo. I know you can smell the amazing pumpkin scents from Bath and Body Works (come on). I know you can see the autumn leaves reflected in the vibrant sunset behind the skyscrapers. I know you can feel it. Whether it be the cool night breeze or more so, the beginning of something new.
Embark into the greatest season to ever exist while I embark on one of my favorite journeys. Here’s to the fall semester, sweaters and introductions!
