First signs of autumn

I can feel the autumn in the air… First glimpse of pale clouds, early morning sunshine that I still dare to greet outside, but only after wrapping myself in a cosy cardigan, warm breakfast followed by coffee that seems more appropriate than a summer-friendly green tea… and… yes, first golden leaves dancing around the park.

I don’t think I’m quite ready to embrace the autumn fully, but in the other hand I can’t help feeling excited about an upcoming change of seasons, beautiful autumn clothes, scented candles and delicious desserts made with crisp apples.

  1. I've been looking forward to autumn for weeks - it suits me much better than summer! And the way you described it just now makes me even more excited about the new season :)

    Not to say I'm not enjoying summer though - every season has its beauty!

    Happy weekend LittleRus x

  2. I'm not happy about the summer ending, but I have to admit, autumn does have its charm and the rich colours and textures of fall fashion are part of it. I hope you have a beautiful, still summery day, lovely Little Rus! xoxo

  3. What a stunning image - i am with you not sure how i feel about the impending change of season but i do love a wardrobe changeover - have a good weekend x

  4. I love the autumn but I'm not quite ready to let go of summer. I'm almost reluctant to browse through my September issues ;-)

    Enjoy your weekend!

  5. Oh, that's sad actually. Fall is approaching and it takes away that beauty of Summer freedom and fun.

    Sometimes I think fashion is the only thing that makes this transition feeling ok.


  6. This is a great pic.. I love it. your blog post is such an inspiration to me right now, thank you!

  7. Oh no! Just as we're about to go back. Ach well. Things could be worse.
    I do look forward to never having a problem with groceries 'cos everything's open in Britain. :)
    Little Rus, you have to email me your shoe size please. Off to the outlets in a few days. Can bring you a pair of boots for next season if you like :)

    Joy xx

  8. Here in NYC it feels at hot as ever, and I still have my summer holiday to take in late Sept, but I am also starting to think about Fall fashion, and layers, and warm drinks by the open fire....
