Happy Tuesday/Wednesday and welcome to another blog post! Autumn weather finally hit here after days and days of rain and as I stepped outside today I was reminded once again oh how wonderful Autumn is. I live in the midwest so I get to experience all four seasons of the year and though each has its perks I always seem to look forward to Autumn most of all. For today’s post, I thought it would share with you why I think Autumn is the best season. So let’s get into it, here is why I think Autumn is the best season!
Colorful Leaves and Brisk Breeze
So like I said before, Autumn weather has finally hit where I am. The last couple weeks it has either been really cold in the morning and then hot in the afternoon or just rainy all day but the last couple of days it has been the perfect Autumn weather. In the morning it has been cold and instead of it being hot and humid like it was before it stays cold but the sun is out so it feels a little warmer. Weather like this is perfect for walks and by the end of it you won’t be sweating your cute Autumn makeup off.
Speaking of Autumn walks another reason I love Autumn is for the leaves changing colors. I love all the different shades of burnt reds, oranges, and yellows. Something about the leaves falling and feeling the brisk breeze makes my heart warm.
My Color of Life!
One of my favorite colors of all time is Burgundy and Maroon. It is such a dark deep beautiful red and looks beautiful on pretty much anything. From fashion and makeup to hair color I will instantly fall in love with whatever this color is on. Autumn is the time where my color of life comes out and stock up on things to get me through the rest of the year.
The Darker the Better
Speaking of makeup, Autumn is the season for darker and more dramatic makeup. As much as I love makeup and posting makeup reviews I am not the greatest at makeup, especially eye makeup. Even though I’m not the greatest I love to watch Autumn makeup tutorials and drool over my dream palette Morphe 35F. Autumn is also the time to bring out all of my favorite dark lip colors as well. I mean I wear my color of life on my lips all year round but it’s more suitable during this time of year.
Sweaters and More!
Going along with the fashion/makeup part of Autumn, I can’t get enough of Autumn fashion. As much as I love summer dresses, I always look forward to the day when I can put away my shorts and summer dresses and pull out the sweaters, scarves coats and boots from hiding. It is so hard going to shops and not buying every single sweater I see because they are so soft and so comfy and they are all I wear during Autumn. This Autumn I’ve been really been getting into mustard yellow and of course, my color of life :).
This Is Halloween
How can I talk about Autumn and not mention the best holiday ever? If you don’t know already, I live for Halloween 365 days of the year. I loved it as a kid for the costumes, pumpkin carving, and the great movies, and even though I don’t get to do as much for Halloween as an adult my love for Halloween is still there, maybe even more. Plus as an adult, I can eat all the Halloween I want and no one can tell me no… especially when that candy is on clearance.
Blankets, Hot Chocolate, Comfort Food and Cuddling
The last thing I love about Autumn is being able to cuddle up in a layer of blankets and enjoy hot chocolate, coffee or a bowl of chili or stew. One of the things I love to do (especially in October) is have friends come over and have a Halloween movie marathon while enjoying these comfort foods. Plus with it being cold out, it is a great excuse to cuddle up with your special someone.
So that is why I think Autumn is the best season! I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I did writing it! What is your favorite part of Autumn?
