I always love October (January-March is the period I hate the most for future reference: I dislike ice and snow after Christmas and would rather a rosy complexion from the sun than the wind!), ever since I was little its brought with it change; when I was younger that was starting new school years and making new friends and now it means a final year at university, a new job and a blossoming relationship.
Something its always mean't to me and always will is: Mittens (preferably hanging on a string, I'm forever a 90's child), Fur coats, tartan scarfs, thick jumpers, flannel shirts, doc martens and fleecy socks. All of this can start to feel a little too old and tired until you dig out some old gems and inject your wardrobe with new finds, rather than picking out a classic fisherman knit I've started turning to bright kitsch knitted patterns and wearing mens plaid shirts that are oversized and comfier and I can team with my doc martens and knee high socks. That brown/black fur coat? I'm mixing it with a bright scarf and a beanie with a veil (Monki and asos do amazing veils or why not buy a vintage one and attach your own netting? Get creative!)
I love Autumn for clashing the old and the new, do you?
This is on my wish list!
