AT THE CHANGE OF SEASON

The end of summer is somewhat always sad, even warm and perfectly fine sunny days feel like one is sort of fooling one self, since autumn is just around the corner. Not that it's all that bad, as I have stated that autumn kind of is my favorite time of season.

As the weather now has varied from cold, windy and rainy one minute and pretty nice and hot the next, and with rather chilly mornings I'm slowly starting to get into that autumn mood - over romanticizing the image of walks under colorful trees and clear skies, wrapped in big scarves, legs covered with warm stockings (you know, all those thing you are happy to get rid of as spring turns into summer...), wet leaves on the ground. My colours of choice change from pastels into classical september-y ones like plum, petrol, okra and brownish shades. These autumn vibes got even stronger when I went to pick up a parcel with some H&M things I''d pre orderd one hangover morning in June - tweed shoes, headbands and knits.

So, if I'd go all fashionista I'd say these were some of my autumn favorites for the soming season. (I don't really talk like that no but I guess I just said it anyway.)

Headband -New, scarf - Grandma's old.

Shoes - New, Stockings-old

Love both the headband and the shoes! I could never pull off the make-up you're wearing, but you look fantastic with it!

Leia said...

Although I love hot weather, your pictures have made me wish for the time when I can wrap myself up in knits and scarves! I love your make-up, too :)

Fantastic autumn clothes. Your make-up reminds me of these old mannequin heads that one (again oldie) hat shop used to have in my home town. Just pretty! Autumn is definitely also my favourite time of year. Looking forward to October. This year for quite a few extra reasons.

Betty Bottom said...

I love your autumn colors! They look so warm, soft and cosy. And your make-up is awesom! You had written it out what I, too feel about autumn. I prefer it as my favourite season but every year when the summer starts turning to fall I feel somewhat melancholic. But strangely it is a good feeling. It makes me stop after a busy summer and enjoy the rainy, dark and sentimental nights and think of life and future. I am still stuck to those years school started and autumn was like the start of the year. :) Oh, I just love the autumn feeling!

Clare said...

I get the same romantic feeling about Autumn and I love it for precisely the clothes reasons that you have demonstrated here.... wooly tights, hats, scarves, layering. You look absolutely adorable and I very very much like a doll. I want that hat too, where's it from?

Betty Bottom: I know, scholl made it feel like kind of a new year, and another remain from my childhood that has developed into me liking autun is that mty birthday is on october, and after that countdown for christmas began!

Maybe I'm a little cryptic in this post for not writing it out separately, but both the headband and the shoes came in my H&Mpackage!!!!
