Autumn is officially here, or at least that what the calendar says.
Autumn is the season of new beginnings: usually – at least in almost all European countries – we start school or Uni in September / October, the weather changes and so on. So just in case, you are sad that summer is gone, here are some reasons to be excited about autumn’s arrival.
Also, summer will be back in a year or so, don’t panic.
1. The Colours
Autumn is the only season when we get to see so many beautiful colours around us. The variety of golden leaves on the ground, the ones that are still green and so on. Although the nature is “dying” I find a lot of comfort in this season.
2. The Fashion
I don’t know if it’s just me, but I love the beige/maroon suede ankle boots, hats of hand bags. Not to mention about purple lipstick or golden eye shadow.
Also you can wear a leather jacket or maybe just a T-shirt without sweating like a pig or being too cold.
3. The Harvest
I think that beside winter (when everything is frozen, including myself), each season brings its own gifts of nature. I love grapes, plums and pumpkin. And pumpkin pie is one of my favourite desserts.

My grandparents grow grapes and each September we gather the whole family to harvest them and we make wine out of it. How cool is that?! Not to mention that the wine is unbelievable tasty!
4. The Holidays
I know that people go crazy over Thanksgiving in the US, but we don’t celebrate it here. We do have a couple of national holidays during autumn which is great.
Also when the national holidays are around the corner, winter is coming – including Christmas.
5. The Perfect Weather
From my point of view, Spring and Autumn are the best seasons when it comes to the weather. Summer is too hot and winter too cold. Or at least where I live is like that.
Autumn has the perfect balance. You can still wear T-shirts and skirts or boots and a blazer if you feel like. The weather will give you infinite options.
