As the weather shifts from summer to fall, so do our routines (and outfits). Now it's time to settle into a balance of work and rest. Along with that comes what we usually do during the dip into fall. 1) Transition our fashion to align with the cooler weather. 2) Drink warm beverages as the chills increase. 3) Move in a different lane, whether for school or work. 4) Settle into the different rhythms we start as we edge closer to the end of the year.


There might be a lot on your mind as the days go on, so here’s one less thing to think about. At The Future Rocks, we have put together five quality time, calming activities you can do by yourself or with a few friends for some self-care. But that’s not all, we’ve also got some fall outfit ideas for further inspiration. 

Taking a walk in a park or nature reserve
