I can't believe autumn's almost over and I haven't found the time to write a post about my favourite season of the year!! I am definitely a mess. Yes, I am aware that I say that in every post, but it is indeed true. I've been a busy-bee lately. I've had lots of UNI work but I've been also going out and getting to know some cool places, which I will hopefully write about soon if I get to go back (I am sure I will).
The thing is, as I have mentioned in the beginning of the post, autumn is my favourite season and it has always been. I love the colours, the arrival of the cold and especially the fact that extra-hot coffee starts to make sense again! Therefore, I came up with the idea (a bit late, oopsies. Forgive me for that) of coming back with an autumn favourites post.
I've tried to put together some of my favourite items that have had a lot of wear out during the season.
1. Favourite pieces of clothing
1.1 My mum's beige knitted sweater
I am obsessed with knitted sweaters, even though I don't own much, and this one is my favourite at the moment. It is my mum's and I only get to have it for a few weeks, since I have to give it back to her when I go home. She's had it since forever and I have always loved it. It is a bit big for my figure, but I love the way it looses and how "baggy" it looks. The colours go with the season and it is super comfy too!! I might keep it until winter, till' I start bringing all of my black clothes out of the wardrobe. Sorry mum.
1.2. The Topshop's JAMIE jeans
I already wrote a post abut these and I am here to say that I am still obsessed with them! I've been wearing a lot of black skinny jeans these days, since they go with the weather, but I am giving the JAMIE's a lot of wear out this season, because I'm not sure if my knees will be able to stand the cold when winter pops up!!
1.3. My brown and golden shiny scarf
I got this scarf a year ago in the parades that are held in my town by the end of October. I am a sucker for scarfs, they are probably my favourite piece of clothing when it's cold. Whenever the cold sneaks in, I wear a scarf around my neck EVERY DAY. I'd have tons, all of different colours. However, this one has to be my favourite for the season because of the colours, that match with the season's, and that also go with everything. And, doesn't it look perfect with my mum's sweater?
1.4. MANGO leather jacket
Did you think I wouldn't introduce anything black? You thought wrong. This jacket has to be my favourite item of the whole post. I've had it for a month and it was a complete bargain!! I wasn't planning on buying a leather jacket anytime soon but then this one showed up and I couldn't not buy it! It is from MANGO's last year's winter season (I think) and it costed around 100€, but I found it in a MANGO outlet for 30€. Told you, A BARGAIN. I've worn it every day since I got it and I still like it as much as the first day. It looks so good with everything! You can go from an elegant look to a tougher one, and always look amazing. I had never had a leather jacket before (I know.. how haven't I!!?) and now I am completely in love with them. Definitely a must for the season.
1.5. Zara's ankle boots
I also made a post about these and, as well as it happened with my JAMIE jeans, they have had a lot of wear out for the last month. They are not the most warm shoes I've have had, but some of the most good-looking (and cheaper!!)
2. Favourite beauty products
Actually, I should have called this section "favourite lipsticks". The ones in the picture above are both two of my favourite colours for the lips, mostly for the season (and winter too). They are both from l'Oréal.
This first one isn't actually a lipstick bar, it's a kind of gloss. I kind of stole it from one of my best friends (I am giving it back to you whenever I get to see ya!! I swear). Ever since she got it in one of our trips to London I loved it. I definitely should have bought it too. I don't like lip gloss that much, but since I discovered this one and the baby lips, I apply them almost every day! I specially love the reddish colour this one has; it is so intense and beautiful, and it lasts for a long time. So if you ever thought of buying it but you haven't yet, I totally recommend it! And it is the perfect colour for Christmas, don't you think?
The second one is my favourite without a doubt! I wear dark colours on the lips for night out's in summer but in autumn they just seem perfect for every day! I love the colour this one has. I fell in love with it since I bought it as a present for one of my best friends, a week later I ended up buying it for myself. It doesn't last on for as much as I'd like, but you can always have it in your bag and reapply it anytime. I totally recommend it if you're looking for a dark wine colour for the lips and you don't want to waste a huge amount of money (I think its price didn't surpass 10€).
3. (Hot) Starbucks White Mocca
You were surely expecting something like the Pumpkin Spice Latte (which would be the normal thing to write down since it's a special of the season), but I can't help it and always prefer my beloved White Mocca. We've had the Pumpkin Spice Latte in Spain for the first time ever this autumn and I couldn't not try it. I liked it, but it isn't on my favourite's list. I cannot wait to try the Christmas specials though! As I mentioned before, one of the things I like the most about autumn is the arrival of the cold, and the fact that you get to drink hot coffee again to keep yourself warm (and your hands!! very important) from the cold. Coffee tastes way better when it's hot and the weather's really cold.. or is it just me?
This is all I have!! Hopefully you've enjoyed it. Make sure to follow my other social media.
