It’s that time of the year when everyone (or just the other bloggers out there) start getting stupidly excited about Autumn. Autumn is 100% my favourite time of the year. My family think I am crazy when in the summer I am saying how excited for Autumn I am. But lets be honest, here in the UK do we ever really have a proper summer?
I thought I would just let you guys know why I love Autumn more than any other season.
Fluffy Socks- Okay, so this improbably the best thing about the colder weather if I am honest. When it starts to be acceptable to wear socks again without your feet sweating, I will wear fluffy socks everyday (as long as you can’t see them in public). They are the bain of my life! I think every Christmas I get about 5 new pairs. Primark fluffy socks are my fave, so if you love them like I do, go grab some from there!
Autumn Colours- There is just something so warmly and homely about autumn colours. Khaki green, mustard yellow and burgundy red, gaah I just love them all. I have already been buying little bits here and there when I see these autumnal colours, you just can’t go wrong with them. Hands up for an Autumn lookbook soon!
Cosy Nights In- If I get the choice of staying in, watching films or going out clubbing, the cosy night in will always win hands down. I know, I am such a grandma. I’m not really a going out kind of girl, I would rather change into my comfy clothes and have a pamper night and watching films. Of course this is a whole lot better in autumn as you can burn your spice scented candle, have the fairy lights on (Don’t forget the fluffy socks) It’s just a whole lot cosier.
Dark Nights- Everyone says I’m crazy when I say I prefer the darker nights. Don’t get me wrong, I do like the light nights as you can go out in the evenings. But there is just something about shutting the curtains early in the evenings and being in our own little bubble world.
Candles- If you know anything about me at all, you know I have an obsession with candles! So I really can’t wait for all the Autumn scented candles to start making an appearance in the shops as I am sure to be grabbing those as soon as possible. Candles just make everything better!
Halloween- Halloween has such a love hate relationship with me. Before Halloween night creeps up on us, I really look forward to it. But when Halloween night is upon us and I am out doing something for the holiday, I get totally freaked out and scared and regret it straight away. I think I love the thought of it, but when it comes down to it. I am terrified, such a scaredy cat.
Falling Leaves- I love it when the leaves have started to fall off the trees with all the pretty autumnal colours. Evening walks in the park with your cosy boots or wellies on are just the best (and also great for those Instagram photos)
Winter wear- Winter wear is my absolute fashion statement. Big coats, furry jackets, hats, scarves, gloves, ear muffs. The more the better! (And warmer)
It’s Nearly Christmas!- ITS CHRISTMASSSS. Well, nearly. Christmas is scarily round the corner and everyone starts to get excited, or is that just me?
What do you love most about Autumn?
Love always, G x
