Autumn is a bit of a blogger cliche now isn’t it? There are certainly a huge chunk of us who massively overdo it with the Autumnal feeds, PSL’s and berry lips. But I must confess, I love it. I’ve always been an Autumn girl, ever since I was a teeny tot. Rainy days inside meant drawing and watching movies; whereas sunny days meant getting too hot and being forced to play out even if you didn’t want to. ‘No mum, I don’t want to make the most of the sunshine! I hate the sun, the sun be damned!’. Okay I’m sure I never actually had an outburst like that, but you get the idea.
I totally get why bloggers seem to love or hate Autumn; if it’s never really been your thing, you’ll especially hate the lack of light and how much harder it makes it to get a good outfit shot, etc. I can’t get enough of it though, and truthfully I come alive during these colder months.
So today I wanted to share four top tips for truly embracing Autumn, whether you love it or hate it!
1. Change up your look.
Autumn is the perfect opportunity to refresh your look a bit, whether you want to do it small ways or go the whole hog. I love to start my embracing darker makeup, berry nails and accessories. Then I’ll try to vamp up my wardrobe with mustard sweaters, cute bobble hats, deep greens and deep violet tights. All the tights!
2. Welcome Autumn into your home.
This might be my favourite way to embrace Autumn! I may even have to share some photos on here soon. I have fairy lights everywhere, cinnamon candles, leaf decorations, an Autumnal wreath & more! A nice addition is also adding cute blankets onto the sofa, and even switching up the cushions for a new look in minutes. A quick browse on Pinterest will give you loads of ideas on how to make your home more Autumn inspired.
3. Change up your content.
If you’re a blogger this is a great time to create lots of new Autumn inspired content; and if not, simply vamping up your Instagram is a great way to bring in the new season! Snaps photos of nature, the leaves changing, rainy days, candles, fires, chestnuts, your favourite seasonal food & drink, and much more!
4. Take advantage of the little things.
Even if Autumn isn’t your favourite, there are plenty of little ways you can try enjoy it more! Enjoying cosy nights in with your partner, having a movie night with friends rather than a night out in the cold, splashing in puddles, collecting chestnuts, making your own Autumnal wreath, trying out all the new seasonal candles, doing some crafty DIY’s and indulging in a good book. This is the season that it’s totally acceptable for you to hibernate a little, so make the most of it!
