The Hot List For Fall 2017
caitlin lewis

Fall is arguably one of the best seasons there is: football, Halloween, gold and other metallic decor everywhere, the smell of cinnamon and pumpkin-everything, hunting season returning, warm sweaters and boots, cozy movie days, reading a book on a chilly evening while in the tub, horror films, and much more.

This fall might be the best yet due to all the fabulous fall fashions, new developments on the entertainment scene, cooking with family and friends, and enjoying local functions and making memories with those you love.

Here's my guide to all the amazing things this fall will have to offer and opportunities/things to explore:


Staples I want in my closet ASAP:

  • Blue jean jackets
  • Black leather jackets
  • Tall brown boots
  • Button-up skirts
  • Thick lace-up sweaters
  • Fun prints like tie-dye and camo
  • Crushed velvet and bell sleeves

Fashion in 2017 and late 2016 introduced us to fun trends such as a revival of 70's inspired Boho outfits, gingham, and edgy lace-up collars and choker tops. This season, we see the transition of all the fun embroidered pieces we fell in love with this summer with the addition of other fun and flowy attire choices.

What I love most about all the pre-fall ensembles we see being put on mannequins and adorning store-front window displays right now is that most of these pieces are very simple but can stop traffic once accessorized and paired with the right shoes and jacket!

Movies/ Music:

When it's getting colder outside, most of us are more prone to indoor activities. What better way to entertain yourself on a chilly fall day than seeing a movie!

Here are a few titles I'm looking forward to seeing:

  • "The Blade Runner 2049" (re-make)
  • "The Justice League"
  • "Wonder"
  • "Murder on a train"
  • "Thank you for Your Service"

A new season also means new music. There are several albums I'm looking forward to adding to my Spotify playlist! Specifically, Miley Cyrus's "Younger Now" and Taylor Swift's "Reputation."


Fall is too cold to show off your summer-bod, you're being cozy so if you're like me you're less inclined to hit the gym and more likely be found on the couch watching Netflix by the fireplace or in the kitchen stuffing your face...

Check out some dishes and drinks I'm itchin' to try:


To all my local Monroe readers, there are so many awesome things happening in the next few months! If you want to enjoy a pretty fall day in town, consider checking out the following upcoming events:

Today is Bisexuality Day and I'm more than ready to give all the bisexuals some love by breaking the stigma. I see you, I hear you, I appreciate you.

Bisexuliaty is a sexual orientation where people can form attraction and/or relationships to more than one gender. More than half of the LGBTQ+ community identifies as bisexual but it comes with a ton of bias, discrimination, and violence. And, honestly, bisexuals tend to be forgotten becuase bi-erasure wants to hold onto biphobia to question the existence and legitimacy of bisexuality.

5 Couples Get Real About Canceling Their Dream Weddings Because Of COVID-19

"It definitely reinforced that as long as we have each other, we can make it through anything together."

There isn't one person the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic hasn't affected. While COVID-19 is risking everyone's physical health, it's also destroying the world's economy and personal finances, weakening mental health, wreaking havoc on education... and, well, the list goes on.

Among the many things being impacted is love.

A Couple's Wedding In Peru Was Postponed By COVID-19, But A Lifetime Of Love Is Worth The Wait

"We'd prefer to wait and have the wedding that both of us have always thought of."

During their first semester at Instituto de Empresa (IE Business School) while working on graduate degrees in Madrid, Spain, soon-to-be-newlyweds Rory and Gigi met when they were placed in a workgroup together — and the rest was history. Now, four years after their relationship began, the couple's fall plans to get married in Perú, where Gigi is originally from, have since been postponed by COVID-19.

Though things haven't always been easy for the pair because of immigration, starting a skincare business together, and now, canceling their dream wedding because of the pandemic, they have always worked together as a team (maybe we should all be in a workgroup with our future spouses).

A Bumble Couple's Wedding Was Canceled By COVID-19, But Nothing Could Come Between This Perfect Match

"The whole purpose of all the stress and time and tears was that we love each other and that was all that mattered."

Shortly after Kaihla's sister made her a dating profile on Bumble (despite her fear of being catfished), she matched with Shanna, and their chemistry was quickly undeniable. So much so that only a month and a half into dating, Shanna told her best friend "I think I'm going to marry her," and eventually, the nonprofit worker and elementary PE teacher duo proved this to be true.

In the fourth episode of a new docuseries called "Pandemic Weddings" by SoulPancake, the couple opens up about how they met, the difficulties of canceling a non-refundable wedding of their dreams (that took a year and a half to plan), as well as the pain of having family members who didn't support their marriage use the pandemic as a convenient excuse not to come.

Bobbie Hall

This fall was my boyfriend and I's two-year anniversary! In the past for special occasions, we've typically gone out for a movie and dinner or just did something fun in general. However, in the year of COVID, we didn't really feel safe doing something like that.

Instead, we wanted to try something new that kept us significantly more socially distanced. Luckily, I found a TikTok trend a few months ago that gave me the perfect idea! The Target TikTok trend blew up all over for couples and friends alike. It seemed like a fun activity for us but also a good way to get each other gifts that we might not have thought about.

If there's one thing everyone's talking about right now, it's voting — in real life, on social media, and yes, even on dating apps.

And rightfully so! Because is there really anything sexier than someone who cares about using their voice to be the change they want to see? In my opinion, no... not much, honestly.

Any medium- to dark-skinned woman knows how difficult it can be to find the right SPF. Most mass-market SPF products are catered to lighter skin tones, and the potent UV-blocking titanium dioxide and zinc oxide have a way of leaving an unflattering white or grey cast on the skin.

Every state is different, so get familiar with your county's regulations early!


The 2020 presidential election is coming up fast and it's important now more than ever to know the resources available to voters.

Because of this, knowing where to register if you haven't already, checking your registration status, and requesting a vote-by-mail ballot is crucial information to be aware of.

Each state has different links and different websites, so this information primarily pertains to Florida residents.
