Sure, it officially may soon be fall now, but in many parts of the country, it seems like nobody’s told the weather. Rather than looking forward to the brisk days of blazers and cozy scarves that the season traditionally calls to mind, we’re still left wondering what to wear in 70-degree weather when we’re frankly pretty tired of our summer wardrobes.
