Let’s face it – girls love boots! In summer it is all about strappy sandals and flats. However, now the weather is colder we get to indulge in our boot fetish. From sexy knee length suede boots to funky, cute ankle boots; now is the perfect time to update your wardrobe.
2. Spiced Pumpkin Lattes
As featured on Buzzfeed, the return of the spiced pumpkin latte is one of the highlights of autumn. Walking through the park with a warming latte is a simple yet highly enjoyable experience.
3. Kicking up Leaves
As the trees shed their autumn leaves, it gives us the chance to bring out our inner child. It’s the simple pleasures that this beautiful season brings that make us really enjoy this time of year.
Layers have become extremely fashionable over the past decade. Paired with a good pair of boots, layered clothing is not only warm, but it’s also sexy.
The cold weather gives us the perfect excuse to steal our boyfriend’s hoodies. As featured on Elite Daily, you will see plenty of girls walking around with ‘borrowed’ hoodies.
6. The Beanie Hat
Beanie hats come in numerous styles and allow us to show off our personality while keeping us warm. A fitted beanie indicates a stylish, feminine personality, while loose fitted beanies show off our lazy, hippie side.
7. Jumping in Puddles
Just like kicking up leaves, jumping in puddles helps us make the most of the dull, wet weather.
Autumn brings the start of the party season, with Halloween being the most notable. Not only can we dress up, but we also get to stuff our face with sweets without feeling guilty.
9. Pumpkin Carving
Another highlight of Halloween is getting to carve pumpkins. There are plenty of unique carving ideas to be found online.
The start of the holiday season gives us an excuse to start baking. Cakes and cupcakes, here we come!!!
