As the seasons change so does our wardrobe. I do not know many women that do not love fall fashion! Boots, sweaters, hats, scarves and even fall jackets! As much as I love the warm weather and sunny days I am simply obsessed with fall fashion. This summer was a real scorcher so I really embraced fall this year. Is there anything better than a cozy sweater? Fall seems to be the shortest season in Canada so we really need to take advantage and rock as many boots and sweaters as possible!
I was home this weekend visiting my family and I went to the arena to watch my niece play hockey. It was a sunny day but also a brisk 14 degrees. To me that is the perfect fall day, which means the perfect fall outfit was in order! I like to dress for the weather because there is nothing worse than being cold, so knowing how chilly it would be in the arena I dressed accordingly. I was pleased with my outfit and was excited for the day. Call me silly but when you are wearing a great outfit, you just know it’s going to be a great day!
When we first arrived I noticed a man in shorts and my first reaction was brrrrr, he must be cold. Then I saw another guy in shorts, then another and another. I stopped counting at eleven. It was a chilly sunny fall day but let’s be honest inside the arena, it’s much colder! I did not see one woman in shorts, so this got me thinking. Why do women LOVE fall fashion so much and why do men wear shorts for as long as possible? Are they afraid of change? Do they not want to let go of summer? Are they still warm when we are chilly? Are they trying to show they are tough and not cold? I don’t get it! Maybe they simply just don’t love fall fashion as much as us.
Men can continue to wear shorts in October and November if they darn well want but best believe I am going to sport my boots and sweaters for as long as possible! Am I right ladies??
