5 Ways To Spice Up Any Fall-To-Winter Wardrobe

If you’re looking for some tips and tricks to spice up your wardrobe this season, you’ve come to the right place.

5 Ways To Spice Up Any Fall-To-Winter Wardrobe

In New Jersey, fall is in full swing. It wasn’t too long ago that I was wearing rompers and skirts to combat the ongoing 70-degree weather in October. With November rolling in, however, the temperature has dropped and coats and scarf season has commenced. If you’re looking for some tips and tricks to spice up your wardrobe this season, you’ve come to the right place.

Incorporate different textures

Not only can different textures keep you warmer, but they can also add a little something to your outfit that could really change a look up. For the fall, perhaps try going for something a little edgier like leather skirts and jackets to pair with just about any neutral colors. If edgy just isn’t your vibe, remember that you can always bring it down a notch by adding a playful cotton scarf to give your outfit some dimension.

Get a bear coat!

This season's biggest trend is, by, far bear coats. I have been seeing them everywhere and I didn’t quite get the hype until I got my hands on one. I bought my first one and it was honestly the best decision I could’ve made for myself (I promise you, I have no regrets). Not only do they manage to keep you extremely warm, but for someone who’s always on the go like myself, it serves as an extra blanket for whenever life calls for one. If you need any more of a reason, if you buy one of a neutral color, it will go with just about anything. Trust me — I can wear mine on the laziest of days or on days I like to dress up. I know that it’ll keep me warm while staying trendy.

Layers, layers, layers

You’ll hear it every season — layers. Layers are part of the reason people like me love the colder months. It allows room for diversity and change in my outfit throughout the day. It also keeps me warm when I’m walking to class, but still allows me to cool off in places where the heat is cranked up a little too high. My personal favorite this season has been vests. I find that they can add some pizzazz to what would’ve been a boring outfit and allow me to change my look if I need to.

Don’t get rid of the shades just yet

I know this can sound like a bit of an odd tip for when the weather's cooling down, but nothing makes or breaks my look like a good old pair of sunglasses. After all, just because it's cold out doesn’t mean the sun goes away. I still find myself squinting as a drive and will take this as an excuse to continue to wear my sunglasses. Additionally, they are extremely versatile and come in a number of colors and styles to compliment any outfit you may be sporting. You don’t have to break the bank with this one. Whether they’re Ray-Bans or 5 dollar lenses, they will both get the job done, while serving as a staple accessory.

Hats galore

You’d be surprised how many people will find themselves complimenting your keen sense of fashion with one of these. While baseball hats are great for any bad hair day, in this case, I’m suggesting something more like a big floppy hat. Truly, for those of us who are lazy but still like to look like we haven’t lost our fashion touch, floppy hats are the way to go. Whether this with a knit dress, or some jeans and booties, you can be sure you’ll turn some heads.

"Arthur's Perfect Christmas" Is The Perfect Holiday Special, Move Over Charlie Brown

Arthur Read is here to deliver the real meaning of Christmas.


As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
