Autumn has arrived!

It was Friday the 3rd of September. My last official day of Summer break. I made myself a delicious fruit smoothie, grabbed dear old Harry Potter, and enjoyed a late, leisurely breakfast.

I was happy to see the day looked promising--a sky as blue as a robin's egg, a lovely breeze, and pretty cool temperatures, just as I like it.

I was so excited for the cool Autumn weather that I took a while picking my outfit for the day. I felt I needed to do the sudden wonderful Autumn weather justice!

It was, in my opinion, perfect outside! Autumn is so absolutely wonderful, wouldn't you say?

The lunch hour came round and I had oatmeal and toast on the screen porch. I enjoyed some P.G. Wodehouse whilst eating my delicious, Fall-like meal.

Mum and I went to pick up Erika spur-of-the-moment at about half-past five. As we were driving clouds were covering the sun. Eventually it became overcast and quite windy--which is weather both Erika and I adore. We had a laid-back supper of burritos while listening to Dirty Projectors.

The sun was setting fast so after supper I charged my camera, Erika and I took a little while picking our outfits (it was, after all, our first ever Autumn photo shoot to post on the blog!), and we headed outside.

It was beautiful, overcast, and windy. Perfect weather for an Autumn photo shoot.

We enjoyed ourselves quite a lot! Both of us saying how excited we were that Autumn was here and stating the things we loved best about it.

It grew steadily darker and soon we thought it time to head back to my house.

We spent the rest of the evening talking and laughing, looking at our favourite blogs, and everything nice to do on an Fall Friday night. :) There is something so wonderful about Autumn evenings!
new colours
We finished with mugs of hot chocolate (the first of the season!) which we took out to the front porch. We covered with a blanket sitting on the swing and talked of many things--how wonderfully the Summer went, what we would do this Autumn, and our plans for Halloween. :) Later that night we stayed up until 3 AM and towards the end of the late night watched our favourite clips from the Anne of Green Gables movies-hahahaha! :) 

I am absolutely in love with this, this, and this song right now by Vampire Weekend. Erika and I totally adore Vampire Weekend--I would definitely go as far as to say that they are our favourite band. And their songs from Contra give us both such memories of this wonderful Summer...we listened to it all the time when we were together!

Hope you're all doing absolutely brilliant! What are you most excited for this Fall?

Cheers to Autumn!

  6. you guys are the cutest! i think you would get along splendidly with my hannah.

    what i love most about fall is the changing leaves--on the trees and on the ground--puffy clouds, apples, acorns, hot cocoa!!, tea time becomes more cozy, and wooly tights and boots! or there is more, but i think you are understanding me quite well :) xo.
