It goes without saying that Autumn is my favourite time of the year. I watch as the season changes colour, the rust tones of the chunky leaves, the cosy chunky knit jumpers and a field full of orange pumpkins. The new season comes with the delight of warm hot chocolate, steaming homemade soups and the delight of Halloween sweets - It's safe to say I'm ready, so here's how I'm preparing for (I know I'm a month early!) Autumn right now.
Decorating The House | I started to decorate the house for Autumn last year and loved it so much that I knew I had to do it again this year, but more extravagant! I've got leaf garlands, new cushions, cosy bundles of blankets and a candle to fill the house with a dreamy Autumn morning scent. Although I was initially going to wait to decorate until it's "officially" Autumn on 22nd September, it's been such a dreadful year that anything that can perk me up and make me feel a little happier I'm all for.
Keeping An Eye Out For Pumpkins | I know it's early, but I always keep an eye out for pumpkins in supermarkets this time of the year. I'm potentially going to decorate outside our house this year to go all out, but I also love having an excuse to cook with them. The other gems of Autumn I'm planning to collect are pine cones, acorns and conkers!
Get Baking! | I won't give away too much, but I have a lot of baking planned for my Tik Tok account which is really an excuse to experiment and eat all the snacks. There's nothing quite like baking a fresh baguette to dunk into soup and I actually want to turn my hand to more savoury items this season as well. Pastries and pies being top of my list and if they're little, I can share them out amongst friends - an Autumnal offering.
Finding New Wardrobe Pieces | Chunky knits, comfy boots and plaid scarfs are just some of the things I love about Autumn fashion. Every year I find my love for mustard, forest green and rust tones gets stronger and this year I've been spotting some new pieces I hope to pick up. Here is some inspiration below:
