If you couldn’t already tell, I have developed a slight obsession with the colour pink. I’m not quite sure where it stemmed from, but it has taken over my bedroom: pink duvet, candles, throw, cushions… and now it’s gradually working its way into my wardrobe.
Party season is officially upon us as the month of sparkles, surprises and Santa has arrived. The countdown for Christmas has begun (whether the Scrooges out there like it or not) and I’m super excited to finish this term of uni, get my last minute shopping done and spend the rest of December drinking too much prosecco, eating too much buffet food and catching up with friends and family. Winter clothes are either snuggly warm or shimmery and glam and I’ve picked out my best finds of both to get through chilly days and fancy nights in the run up to the best day of the year.
Now the depths of autumn have set in, it’s time to get serious about winter style (and Christmas preparations). For me, once Halloween and bonfire night are over, the countdown has officially begun and the magic of shopping, decorating and traditions hang in the air. The dark nights signify cosy, festive evenings and as long as I’m wrapped up warm I love walking home to my flat past the sparkly shops with that cold, November feel getting me all excited! I’ve already willingly let Bublé back into my life to sooth me from uni stress with Christmas cheer, started scouting presents for friends and family and written my list to Santa – here’s a peek at what’s on it…
I’ve recently been sucked into 90s TV series Twin Peaks, and not just for the cheesy romances, hilariously repetitive soundtrack and mild horror (about the only horror I can handle) surrounding the cosy little town. While the mystery of Laura Palmer and the dark secrets hidden in the storyline are gripping, the retro interiors and vintage outfits are what really have me hooked. I’ve been getting some seeeerious autumn / winter inspo just from watching it, and it’s making me want to stock up on all of the oversized, chunky knitwear and tartan that I can get my hands on. The colour scheme is dreamy for setting the tone for my autumnal wardrobe; showering me with all the browns, reds, golds and greens I could wish for.
