7 Lattes & Wishies | Autumn Loves!

Hello Autumn!

The transition from the warm sunfilled days to chillier grey days can be frustrating. Especially if you are like me and prefer shorts over pants any day. In fact, my employer will attest to me begrudgingly changing into slacks at the beginning of all my shifts. 

But once I accept that I will need to wear pants and put my cute little shorts in storage till it is warm again, Autumn is in fact a beautiful time of the year! The changing of the leaves from crisp bright green to warm reds, oranges and yellows is stunning. It is also a time of warm hot cocoa accompanied by spiced apple pies. It is a cozy season when you get to pull out your knitted sweaters and cute boots. My birthday also happens to be during autumn, so of course I love fall! 

There are some things that just go hand in hand with autumn. When I think of fall, I imagine myself cozy in a thick knitted wool sweater with my fingers wrapped around a cute mug. Of course, I will be sipping the ultimate fall drink - a Pumpkin Spice Latte! Hate me, but we all love pumpkin spice lattes! My favourite sweaters are from Aritzia since the majority of their sweaters are knit with natural fibers such as merino wool, cashmere, and cotton. Natural fibers are just far cozier than polyester will be as well, merino wall blend sweaters are amazingly soft! I think it is time I grabbed myself a monogrammed mug because I am a little possessive when it comes to drink ware. Hopefully with the cute "G" on this mug, it will hinder others from borrowing my mug. 

My ears are quite sensitive to the cold, so my favourite go to accessory during the cool days are knitted toques with a big pom pom on top. I just find them really cute! Alongside my toques, I love wearing knee length riding boots. A good pair of leather boots can dress up any outfit. I am dying for this Tory Burch pair because they have an iconic equestrian riding boot shape. As the days cool down, I pull out my jackets. Early fall is still too warm for parkas and wool coats, but you still need a light jacket. Trench coats can really bring together an outfit and nothing is more iconic than the Burberry trench coat. Fingers crossed that I can save enough money and get myself one as a birthday present to me!

When it is a rainy evening, I like to spend them indoors curled up in a blanket as I watch Netflix. This one is a little weird, I sort of really want to get a silk robe to lounge around in on those days in! Haha 

I am really excited for autumn and cannot wait for my birthday! Let me know in the comments below what you love about autumn and what items are a must for you during the season!
