With fall foliage season upon us - & leaves to be peeped on both coasts of the US - why not use the excuse for a trip? AccuWeather.com recently launched their Fall Foliage Center which tracks the most spectacular displays, explains conundrums such as how drought affects fall colors, and even lets viewers submit their own fave shots of autumnal fabulousness. "As the World's Weather Authority, we at AccuWeather.com keenly relate to the excitement people feel about the changes of season," says Jim Candor, AccuWeather.com's Senior Vice President of New Media and a professional meteorologist. "Dryness of the soil and position of the sun are the two major factors that contribute to changing color, so we may expect to see some great color related to this year's droughts."
Of course, a trip or vacation is always an excuse for fashion; in this case, play the part of chic French tourist in a dashing (but warm) black cape & skinny Audrey Hepburn pants, with chic red beret & bag. Smoking & sexy accent optional.
