While everyone else mourns the loss of Summer, the first week of September gets me all excited for Autumn (or Fall if you are reading in the US!) As much as I love warmer weather, barbecues and an excuse to eat ice cream every day, Autumn is definitely my favourite season in the UK. Something about seeing the trees shed their leaves feels like a metaphor for new beginnings and having things to look forward to. So today I’m sharing with you five reasons I love the beautiful season that is Autumn.
Time to get the boots out
I own too many pairs of shoes (hardly a surprising confession from a female!) but boots are definitely the favourite way to dress my feet. Wedge, heeled, flat, ankle, knee high, calf high and even wellies – I love them all!
It’s onesie season
Can you believe there was a time when onesies weren’t a thing?! Autumn is the time mine come out of storage and they don’t go away again until at least February!
Not long to wait for Bonfire Night
Bonfire Night was a celebration I didn’t embrace as a child (mainly because I was a huge wimp and was scared of fire and all things related) but I have made up for that as an adult! I love wrapping up in a jumper, coat, scarf, gloves and (of course) boots and trampling through a field torch in one hand and hot drink in the other ready to “ooh” and “aah” at the fireworks displays.
Make up gets vampy
Obviously you can wear whatever make up you like no matter the weather but I love cracking out the vampy colours in Autumn. Plum lips, burgundy nails, and copper eye shadows are a few of my fave options. I uploaded a video to my YouTube channel creating just the look I’m talking about (linked here).
I have watched Strictly Come Dancing almost since the beginning. I love the “British-ness” of the format, the make up, the costumes and of course the dancing. After having had a brief affair with X Factor last year meaning I didn’t get into Strictly, I have seen the error of my ways and am ready to dedicate my Saturday nights to Tess and Claudia. Even better – it’s like a count down to Christmas!
