EDITOR ‌THIS WEEK, LN FASHION EDITOR KATIE YEADON PUT TOGETHER a stunning spread to preview this fall’s fashions. And although it might not seem like it with temperatures in the 90s this week, fall is just around the corner. The change in seasons got me thinking how easy it can be to let your daily routine gradually slip into a rut – take the kids to school, go to work, eat at the same restaurants, and never venture outside your bubble of familiarity. But as the days get shorter and the nights get cooler, I suggest we take this chance to see what we’ve been missing. There are so many opportunities in St. Louis to find something new. Never seen the St. Louis Symphony’s free annual concert in Forest Park? It’s coming up on Sept. 15, and by all accounts it’s not-to-be-missed. Never been to an exhibit at the Contemporary Art Museum? Their fall season is about to start, and you can read about it starting on page 92. And of course, if the only change-up your routine needs is a new fall wardrobe, you can see all the new trends in our Fall in Love fashion spread, which begins on page 64.
