Favourite Things about Autumn & Outfit


Autumn is my favourite time of the year, and I’m sure I’m not the only one who loves, and I mean loves, autumn. The leaves change colour, the nights draw in and the temperature drops - not to mention it means Christmas is just around the corner. Today I wanted to encapsulate the things I love about autumn in one post and share with you all.

Autumnal walks | I love walking during the autumn months, I love walking in general but during autumn it’s extra special. Its cool enough to wear a coat but your fingers aren’t falling off and you get to experience all the leaves changing colour. If you live in the countryside like me you’ll also probably see a large amount of wild animals - pheasants & deer being the main ones. The photos in this post were taken at Westonbirt Arboretum which isn't terribly far from where we live and is a day place to just be for a while whilst looking at how beautiful nature can be.

Layering | I love a coat, I have a slight obsession with good quality, tailored coats - the one in these photos is from Jack Wills - and I always get excited when the temperature begins to fall because it means I can dig out all of my outerwear. The cooler weather is also a great excuse to wear every jumper you own, dust off the thick socks and of course, the tartan scarf.

Berry hues | As somebody you wears a uniform of monochrome autumn is great as it means I can introduce my berry, rust and brown shades into my wardrobe which I can’t get away with during the warmer months. I can also start to wear my berry and vampy lip colours again - above I’m wearing Charlotte Tilbury’s Bond Girl.

Lazy days | When the rain is pelting against the windows and you have no reason to leave the house I love to wrap myself up in my incredibly fluffy dressing gown and my pjs and do a whole lot of nothing. During summer you feel like you’re wasting the day - carpe diem and all that - but during autumn and winter there is no guilt, at all.

Gingerbread scented/flavoured things | Candles, cakes, biscuits, room sprays, coffee, I don’t care what it is but if it’s gingerbread, I’ll have it all, please.

Christmas songs | I’m not ashamed to say that I start to get excited for Christmas as soon as September comes around. I’m a big kid at heart, and the Christmas songs get cracked out as soon as I can get away with it. My top three favourites are: Fairytale of New York - The Pogues & Kirsty MacColl (the most anti-Christmas song which perfectly sums up my family), Have yourself a merry little Christmas - Frank Sinatra (I could listen to Frank all day, every day quite easily), Stop the cavalry - Jona Lewie (this is also my mums favourite Christmas song so inherently is one of mine).
