October is one of my favourite months of the year. The leaves are falling, and as unpopular an opinion as it is, us vampire-like pale people can finally exit the house without melting/sparkling like a Cullen/setting on fire... And weirdly, dressing is just so much easier when it's colder. Now, before you all go calling me crazy for wishing the cold on you all, I have a list in defence of my reasoning, so without further ado...
- It's finally the time of year where you can cover your legs (*cough* stop shaving *cough*)
- Autumnal colours that suit my skin tone are now acceptable
- Fresh/cold air greets us in the mornings
- Copious cups of tea (need I say more)
- Cosying up with blankets and netflix and calling it a social life is a thing
- Beautiful textures such as velvet and knitwear can be rummaged out from the back of the closet
and of course
But let's go back to one of my first points. Autumn dressing. First of all - black, everybody's favourite wardrobe staple shade makes its return for a good, solid 5 months meaning less thought required when conjuring up your morning outfits. Second of all, auburn, brown, beige, teal, khaki and burgundy - is anyone else not just completely obsessed with that entire colour palette? And third of all - the comfort of throwing on a pair of cosy trousers in knitted fabrics, velvets, and wools and still looking super chic. Case closed.
