Autumn is my favourite time of year. Ugg boots, just boots in general, jeans, scarves, warm colours, leaves falling, pumpkin spice lattes. Ugh, I love it. I think I always loved autumn when I was younger because it meant the start of a new school year, which meant new stationery (!!!!) and being in a higher year, which in school was exciting! Now, I don’t feel so much like that and I’m actually dreading leaving university because I feel like three years isn’t enough for £27,000 and I’m not grown up enough to have adult responsibilities (hello masters degree applications!).
So I thought to celebrate just how much I love autumn, I would share my favourite autumnal beauty and fashion looks to spread the autumn love. Just a warning, this blog post is a bit of a random mash of stuff, apologies.
When it starts to get colder, I find myself becoming less productive, I want to stay inside and watch sex and the city rather than attempting to hanging out the washing on an overcast, windy day. I think that there might be a few of you out there that feel the same so, I made a print out for you to make your determinations and goals for the autumn and you can download it here: Autumn productivity!
This autumn, I think metallic lips are going to be in. I hope anyway because I’ll be wearing metallics regardless. With the release of palettes like Naked Heat and Subculture, shades of burgundy, red and mustard will be great for dramatic eye shadow. When wearing colours like red on my eyes, to avoid it looking like I have allergies, I put a lighter, more golden shade on the inner corner of my eye to brighten the look.
In terms of fashion, autumn outfits are my favourite. You don’t always have to be covered up to your eyeballs in wool because you get the pretty October sun and it’s a chance to wear leather boots with tights and skirts. Here are some images from my pinterest board..
This Autumn I am definitely feeling the woolly jumpers. I bought a BEAUTIFUL knitted jumper from Toast just over a year ago and I plan to live in it this A/W. Also, the best thing is- are you wearing a bra under there, are you going au naturel, who knows?
What is your favourite thing about Autumn? Or are you wishing for Summer to return? Either way, I hope your Autumn brings hope and happiness.
