Post in collaboration with Kipling
The change in seasons can sometimes leave a bitter feeling, that the summer seasons has passed and autumn has well and truly arrived. Embracing autumn has been a long time in the making for me. Since once those dark nights started drawing in and the temperature would drop. It couldn’t help but put me in a ‘bad’ mood.
However, more recently I have learn’t to embrace the change in seasons, and not see it as so much of a negative, but a positive. Because nature needs seasons to grow and nurture and we can do the same.
What I look forward to in Autumn
Without a doubt, October is Halloween and what better way to get you into the mood of things. As well as create an autumnal setting in your house /room/student accommodation, then with pumpkin picking. Sopley Farm in Christchurch has a wide range of pumpkins and gourds. They are so affordable and you can pick up some pretty unique ones too, e.g. white pumpkins anyone?! These are indeed where we took today’s accompanying photos.
The shorter evenings can be a downer especially as we were truly spoilt over summer. But it is the start of the ‘cosy seasons’. The season’s where you fill your space with fairy lights, soft blankets and scented candles, making it somewhere you actually want to be. As well as it being socially acceptable to be in your pyjamas from 4pm (if you hadn’t already).
Another aspect which I try and incorporate into my month, regardless of whether it’s the start of autumn. Is planning little trips or visits within the months, to break up the month and give you something to look forward to. From the littlest things like going to the cinema one evening, to break up your day, to taking a day trip to somewhere local. I am the sort of person that thrives off being busy. So, sometimes adding these trips/visits throughout your month can definitely keep that positive momentum going.
Kipling have kindly sponsored this post to coincide with their “Vintage” Bag Collection. The range is all about taking their ‘heritage’ styles and giving them a ‘modern’ update. Kipling’s “Teddy Crossbody” bag is perfect for on-the-go and if you want to travel light, as it perfectly fits a phone and a purse in.
Taking inspiration from the vintage theme, was all about incorporating that 70s inspired colour palette into today’s photos, ensuring that the main focus was on the bag. Because if there is something I’ve become obsessed with then it is definitely the mini-bag trend. The range is an online exclusive and there are a wide range of unisex styles to suit pretty much everyone’s needs. You can see more of the range here.
