Is it just me or does this time of year always feels bittersweet? The sultriness of summer fades and it’s time to have a sexy fall!
Summer is about lounging outside, hiking, beach trips, ice cream, and lazy Sundays cuddling with a good book (or a good partner…). It’s the season of long days and sultry nights, sunshine, and amazing memories that only seem to happen that time of year.
At the same time, Fall forever represents a time of new beginnings. It’s a chance to start fresh, almost like a second New Year’s. And I absolutely love that. It’s time to take stock-of your relationship. What’s working, what’s not, and what do you want to make happen in the last few months of the year?
Though you may associate this cleaning with spring, fall is also a perfect time to do a little clearing out. My favorite place to start? My closet.
What summer clothes left you feeling less than confident and sexy? What fall/winter clothes don’t fit really well or don’t help you look and feel your best? Out they go! As I get more comfortable with my body and fashion, I’m learning what makes me feel best. This process can help you do the same!
Side note: I totally used to reject the idea of “looking good” to feel good as superficial or an impossible standard that didn’t fit my body. Now that I’m embracing me for me, I’m seeing the connection oh so clearly: I want my outsides to match my insides. Interestingly, this revelation affirms something I’ve always said:
Want more ideas for doing sexy fall cleaning?
Below are three more areas where you can let go in order to feel more connected and have a sexy fall:
- In the bedroom. As the seasons change, you may find yourself craving less excitement and more cuddling, savoring the sweet and slow over the hard and fast. Enjoy pleasure for pleasure’s sake and take your time building to orgasm versus just getting it done. Let yourself indulge in every whisper, stroke, kiss, touch, and kiss.
- During your morning routine. The change in weather can be tough on your skin, making fall the perfect time to pamper yourself more than usual. I love taking a few extra minutes to moisturize after my shower and really get in touch with how my body is doing. The goal is to luxuriate in your body. Extra points if you treat yourself to a professional massage or spa treatment.
- In your everyday. I’ve written about making everyday more sensual in the past. But with fall, I find myself craving warmth, grounding, and connection. For me that comes in the form of candles, tea, lattes, and foot soaks. For you it may be bowls of warm cereal, coffee, and the extra layer of clothes we’re starting to need.
All of these tips are focused on helping you feel your sexiest even as the temps drop and the “summer heat” (take that as you will) fades. If you find yourself wanting to clean out or needing some extra pampering, give in. Indulge yourself pleasure seeker- you deserve it!
