    For all those currently mourning the loss of summer and cursing the autumnal equinox this evening, keep this in mind: Fall is pretty awesome. Just think about it: You won't feel like you're melting on your walk to the bodega, fall clothes rule (hello layers), you can leave that handheld spray/fan water bottle contraption at home, fall clothes rule (cozy cardigans + long sleeves), there is more to life than the beach (as much as it pains me to say), and did I mention...fall clothes r u l e?

    At the forefront of awesome fall collections is indie UK label Motel. For their autumn '14 lookbook, the brand took their totally awesome collection on a woodland retreat. And even though you'd never expect to pack printed minis, metallic foil slips, textured gothic cardigans, and leopard trousers for a weekend camping excursion, you have to admit that it somehow works. Chalk it up to the collection's versatility, or the '90s-inspired styling, but we're ready to relive our Girl Scouts days, ankle boots, chokers, and minis in tow.
