Hey lovelies! I don’t know about you but Autumn is my absolute favourite season, yes I know most people live for summer but when you have skin as pale as mine and you can’t sit in the sun for longer than 10 minutes without getting burnt it all seems a bit pointless. That’s why I’m super excited that it’s officially Autumn again! I thought I’d list some of my favourite things about the season, you never know I might convince some of you that it is actually the best.
Chunky Knit Jumpers
I’ve never been one for a summer wardrobe of short shorts and crop tops, I don’t particularly like revealing clothes which is why I adore my autumn/winter wardrobe! Chunky knit jumpers are my absolute favourite thing in the world I love how cosy and warm they are and they literally look good with anything, jeans and some boots for a daytime look or a skirt/pinafore if you want to dress it up a bit more.
I have quite a good selection of autumn/winter clothes so I don’t really need many for this year but I doubt that will stop me buying them! New Look have some beautiful tartan skirts in at the minute which I’ve been eyeing up; they’ll look so good with some tights and boots and Primark obviously do the best jumpers in the world! You can’t beat affordable fashion!
I Can Finally Wear Boots Again
I must be one of the only girls in the world who isn’t a big fan of wearing sandals, I haven’t owned a pair of jelly shoes since I was about 6 and I don’t think I’ll ever purchase a pair of sliders especially ones with fur across them eurgh! I tolerate sandals for the hottest summer days and when I go abroad but you’ll usually see me rocking my Converse throughout the warmer months which is why I’m so glad it’s finally cool enough to get my boots back out!
Over the past few months I’ve treated myself to two pairs of Dr Martens which are both stunning so I can’t wait to start wearing those as well as some of my favourite purchases from last year!
In the summer duvet days don’t happen very frequently because I feel like I’m wasting the day lying in bed doing nothing when I could be out supposedly ‘enjoying’ the weather. When Autumn rolls around and the Great British weather treats us to rain almost every day this is the perfect excuse to stay tucked up in bed binge watching Netflix because obviously you can’t go out in the rain unless it’s to get snacks for whilst you’re 10 episodes deep into the latest TV series right?!
I feel like this post is full of unpopular opinions and please don’t hate me but I’ve never got the hype over Halloween, when I was younger I never went trick or treating and although I’ve been to a couple of Halloween parties over the years it’s never really bothered me (I’m sure if I went to Disney while they have their decorations up I’d completely change my mind as it always looks amazing!) but I much prefer Bonfire Night!
I love getting wrapped up in a big coat and a huge scarf to go and watch a firework display, you can’t beat getting yourself a hot chocolate to keep warm whilst watching the beautiful fireworks light up the sky. Obviously nothing will ever beat Disney fireworks but it’s still one of my favourite nights of the year!
Oh and while we’re on the topic of fires, we got a log burner last year in our living room and curling up in front of that with a good book is also one of the best ways to spend your weekend! I’ll definitely miss that when I move out.
I’m sure most of you will agree that autumnal colours are the best, I love seeing all the leaves fall off the trees and the beautiful shades of red/orange they are. I literally live for autumnal colours, from the colours in my wardrobe to the shades of makeup I pick. Red, orange, brown, burgundy they’re all SO stunning!
It’s Almost Christmas!!!
Autumn means one thing, we’re one step closer to Christmas! As I’m writing this it’s officially the first day of Autumn and the shops already have some of their Christmas gift sets in. Don’t get me wrong even I think this is a bit early, I think they should wait until October at least as people get sick of seeing/hearing about Christmas and it kind of takes away from the magic of it all but that doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy having a good look at all the different sets on offer this year!
Christmas is my absolute favourite day of the year ever, from the feeling of pure joy you get when you wake up on Christmas morning, to opening all your presents, seeing people’s faces when they open what you got them and obviously Christmas dinner. I don’t understand how people don’t like Christmas to me it’s amazing and this year I’m looking forward to it even more as we get to experience Christmas in Disneyland Paris at the start of December so I’ll definitely be in the Christmas spirit after that!
We can finally light candles again and I’m so ready to get all my Christmas scented candles back out!
That’s all for this post lovelies, hopefully I’ll be doing lots of Autumn themed content over the next few weeks. Let me know what your favourite thing about Autumn is in the comments!
