This year I am so looking forward for the temperature to drop, leaves start turning into rich shades of red, orange, yellow and brown, start layering up, bringing out the winter-wear and just being warm and cosy. I think this want has been born from the long heat wave we had this Summer. By the end of it I was sick of constant sunshine and temperature in the high 20's if not higher. I feel like its about time Winter comes around the corner.
Its pretty sad really that I'm actually exited to layer up, get some new knitwear and experiment with new styles. For some reason I'm starting to find my self getting obsessed with knitted jumpers with some sort of shirt underneath with a colour that contrasts the colour of the jumper. It's a look that's grown on me substantially within the last week or so.
There's quite a few things I have to look forward to over the next few weeks leading through the Autumnal period, quite a few things I want to do and accomplish and also a sneaky little wishlist to update my Autumn/Winter wardrobe (if there's any room left that is...)
Over the next couple of weeks are always busy ever year, and this year is not exception, and this is a week I like to call birthday week. Where me and my two older sisters celebrate our birthdays within the same week, spooky don't you think?? (Insert Halloween pun) But yeah birthday week starts on my oldest sisters birthday, the 22nd of October, and ends the day after mine on the 28th. In this one week I have four days of school, two shifts in work, MULTIPLE meals planned/semi-planned for birthday celebrations, visit to and from many different relatives and a day trip to London. For my birthday, me and my group of friends have decided to have a day trip to London, to do a bit (LOT) of shopping, see some sights and have some memories and have an experience of something we haven't done before, being 17 and the fact that's its London, I think all of our mothers will be on pins that day... Also coming up is my half-term, Halloween and Bomb-fire Night. Bomb-fire night is one of my favourite celebrations, even thought I don't actually celebrate it on the actual date due to school, but I still LOVE IT!!
Over the next few weeks I definitely want to update my wardrobe for a more Autumnal/Wintery feel. I want to expand my knitwear and shirt collection to expand my much loved style at the moment. I also want to revive my denim collection as my jeans don't really fit me any more from weight-lose, I definitely need a pair of grey super skinnies and a pair of light blue super skinnies. I would like to start wearing more hats, but with my current hair style, wearing a hat turns my head into an egg. Also I would like to delve into scarf's, a long, black and red chequered one is on my radar. I also need new shoes. I definitely need a wider variety from my pair of white Converses that I wear with pretty much everything. I'de like to get a nice pair of brown leather boots and a pair of comfortable high tops.
This years excitement for Autumn has been discovered for the very first time, and I have to say that I'm pretty exited. I also realise that this post went off on a little tangent, but I'm just in one of those moods. Make the most of it while it lasts Jack!!
