OKG Shop: Fall finery 

Summer is over, thankfully. It’s time to get out your favorite shirts, push those sleeves up (because it is still warm, of course) and dig into the best season of the year with some of the best places for fall fun and apparel.

“Let’s have a picnic!” someone might have said to you this summer. But while they got sunburns and ant bites, you waited. Now, it’s fall. The weather isn’t nightmarish. You can stop in at Olive & Co. to find gourmet ingredients for a picnic you’ll actually enjoy. Surviving fall isn’t enough. With grill glazes, high-end olive oil and aged balsamic vinegar, you will be ready to conquer fall with flavor.

Scientifically, a nip of alcohol doesn’t warm your body up. But sometimes science is stupid. Head to Freeman’s for a selection of wine and spirits that will ward off autumn’s chill with cheer. What sounds better than a soft wool sweater and a snifter of brandy? Is anything nicer than a hot toddy and a scarf? Set yourself up for a season worthy of greeting with a glass of fine port or any other beverage from Freeman’s.

Ooooooklahoma, where the wind comes sweeping down the plains and, if you’re not careful, up your skirt. Guard against unwanted breeze entry with layers of cute tops and stylish pants from J. Lilly’s near Nicoma Park. With its selection of Oklahoma-centric shirts, you can show your pride in a state determined to blow you away.

Weather is the natural enemy of food trucks. If it’s too hot, people won’t stand in line. If it’s too cold, customers won’t come out at all. That is why fall is the perfect time to visit The Bleu Garten. With spacious patios, fire pits and a wide selection of beer and spirits, it’s the best place to grab a bite from the ever-rotating roster of food trucks parked there. Barbecue? Tacos? Hot wings? There’s always something new to nosh on here.

Falling leaves and bundling up for brisk walks might be better fitted for November, but nothing can hold Oklahomans back from getting their pumpkins. The Garden Gnome Bonsai is the spot to pick out a pumpkin and snag a squash plant grown in our own red soil. What is hotter than shopping local and supporting local farmers? Maybe an Oklahoma jack-o’-lantern on the porch on All Hallows’ Eve.
