The lovely Adell from Adellbaker.com recently shared this on Twitter and I loved it. Her post was created a few years ago but why not bring it back.
WHAT SIGNIFIES THE START OF AUTUMN FOR YOU?
I can’t think of a specific date that for me equals Autumn but there are several moments where I get that Autumn feeling.
The first time I spot the tree’s begin to turn or at 7.30pm when you realise that it is beginning to get dark, then there’s all the new TV listings on Netflix which scream cosy season is coming and when you have to put a cardigan on because it is just a little chilly first and last thing.
I really love all these moments.
FAVOURITE AUTUMN SCENT?
This is easy! It has to be bonfire. I smelt it for the first time yesterday in fact. I was driving home from work, still light outside so no doubt it was rubbish being burned but oh that smell. Even while the thermometer was reading 22 degrees it gave me all the Autumn feels.
FAVOURITE AUTUMN COLOUR?
I am not really a fan of the bright yellow’s and red’s and oranges of Autumn at any other time of year. But there is something so amazing in watching the colours change and see the ground filled with these colours close to fire. I absolutely love it.
In terms of clothes, a friend gave me a lovely mustard top and I have a red polo neck that I can’t wait to get out of the wardrobe.
I also bought some lovely suede ankle boots in a tan colour last year in the sale and have been very good to not wear them as they feel like a real Autumn item.
FAVOURITE FALL DRINK?
Salted caramel and gingerbread anything. This year I am going to make myself try pumpkin spice. It is obviously a firm favourite for most people but I can’t say I am a pumpkin fan!
WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO SPEND A RAINY DAY?
I love a rainy day so much! If I can find any reason to stay at home I’m all over it.
For me it’s the perfect excuse to stay snuggled up. A good rainy day is spending the morning achieving something, housework, sorting out, washing etc and then an afternoon of family films.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE AUTUMN MOVIE?
I don’t have a favourite Autumn film, it would just be something really family friendly that we could all snuggle up together to watch.
There is of course some brilliant Halloween films. I’d love to show the kids hocus pocus this year. F wants to watch the Adams family and Coraline always makes me think of Halloween.
WHAT IS YOUR MOST-LOVED OUTDOOR AUTUMN ACTIVITY?
Walking through fallen leaves. Oh it makes me so happy. Through the woods, all the trees at various stages of green to red and orange and brown and the leaves underfoot.
One of my favourite places to visit is Batsford Arboretum in the Cotswolds.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE AUTUMN FASHION TREND?
Jumpers!! Who doesn’t love a jumper. Or a thick cardigan??
I also love my man in a knitted jumper too *swoons*
I really love subtle floral patterns in Autumn and an oversized jumper.
What is Autumn for you? Is it a season you enjoy or would you rather skip it?
I’d love to see your answers to the above post.
