I spent the past weekend in Fort Lauderdale, where I devoted three days to frying myself with my girlfriends in a last desperate attempt to carry some color through fall. As I am now forced to apply airplane bottle lotions to my desert-sand skin every 20 minutes, it’s safe to say I’m ready to take a break for a few seasons.
It seems that in the few short days I’ve been out of the city, our window of Indian summer days are over. It’s time to unpack our fall boots and bring back flannels into our weekend rotation. Lucky for you, we have a week of fun to match the autumn vibes we’re feeling all over Manhattan.
