Jeans - With cold weather on the horizon, it’s time to say goodbye to shorts and skirts. An absolute essential for fall are many good pairs of jeans. Make sure to have a couple denim pairs in regular colors, and then experiment with some other fall colors!
A good pair of boots - We all know that fall season means that you’re going to be wearing a lot of jeans, which means you’ll definitely need a good pair of shoes to spice up an everyday pair of jeans. Make sure to get a durable pair of boots that will last you through the season. Also, pick a neutral color so that they’re more versatile.
Sweater or cardigan - If you still want to wear your short sleeve shirts in the fall, then invest in a sweater or cardigan to keep you warm. Make sure that you get one that is made of warm material. Now you can wear your summer wardrobe all year long!
Flannel - Flannel is something that you can only get away with during the fall so go crazy! Make sure to wear an understated top though, so that the overlapping colors of the flannel don’t clash. I recommend a flannel jacket, as it is more subtle, and you can wear a cute top with it as well.
Leggings - There are always those days in fall when you just want to stay in bed and wear comfortable clothes. Well, leggings are perfect for that! Sometime jeans can be a little uncomfortable. When this happens leggings are your best friend. Be sure to get a basic black pair that you can simply throw them on in the morning and be good to go.
Infinity scarf - If you’re looking for a more understated accessory, I would suggest an infinity scarf. Scarves are a great way to add a pop of color to any outfit. Pair it with a complementing pair of earrings for a cute and natural look.
“David and Lisa” in a phenomenal play put on by Theatre on the James. The play focuses on a sixteen year old boy named David, played by Nick Whelen, who has a fear of being touched. His parents, in hopes of helping him, send him to a special school with other kids with similar problems. There, he meets a girl named Lisa, played by Fiorenza LoPresti, who has Dissociative Identity Disorder. As the days pass, David forms new friendships and confronts his inner turmoil with the help of Lisa and a therapist Dr. Alan Swinford, played by Jake Lester. The production is a bit darker than what we are used to, but light moments of comedy are sprinkled throughout to keep us on the edge of our seats. All in all, this play was a rollercoaster of emotions that I wouldn’t mind going on again!
