F-in right it's the weekend, and there's something about weekends during the in-between seasons like fall that makes everything seem kinda' perfect. The weather's not too hot but not too cold, you've got a lot of room for flexibility when it comes to outfits, and there's tons of seasonable activities to be photographed doing while you're wearing your new fall coat.
The bad thing about fall? It's generally pretty short (like, two months short) so you've got to take advantage of it while you can.
Here are some things you can do to enjoy short-lived fall no matter where you live:
1. Go Outside!
No matter where you live fall's pretty freaking beautiful, so you should take the time to leave the house and enjoy the scenery.
Is it still warm where you are? Go camping.
Is it chilly? Go for a walk in the park/woods/on your street/in your yard, wherever, as long as your outside long enough to enjoy the middle of the road weather and the scenery that comes with it.
Is it already cold? Read the next weekend suggestion.
2. Watch a (Good) Documentary
Watching a documentary just makes you feel good. Maybe it's because they make you think, or because afterwards you'll feel like a super intellectual type who just drops documentary references in everyday conversations. Either way, it's a nice break from your normal television + movie routine.
3. Drink Some Local Fall-Themed Beer, or Apple Cider
Last Friday, we went to a Columbian restaurant in Brixton Village (which I am now obsessed with). Afterwards we bought some local beers and strolled around* Brixton in the chilly fall air. It was perfect.
If fall does one thing right, it's drinks. Whether you're after the alcoholic variety or prefer some warm apple cider, it's the perfect time of year visit an orchard, brewery, or a supermarket to get something yum yum yummy to drink.
*I'm still not used to the whole idea that it's legal to drink in public here, so I was super duper nervous carrying the beer. I keep waiting for a cop to get mad at me, or for a teacher or some other authority figure to look at me disapprovingly.
4. Eat Candy
It's Halloween, for pete's sake.
