Ten Reasons Why Autumn/Winter Is Awesome

Untitled
So August is coming to a close and with it we wave goodbye to summer. Also known as that three week period where us brits briefly got our legs out. And whilst I absolutely love summer for many reasons, it’s about time we turned our dread for the darker days around and focused on just how awesome autumn/winter can be. If you’re struggling to see the (day) light at the end of the tunnel, here are ten reasons why we should embrace the seasonal change.

Chunky knits
A new season means an excuse to update your style. Whilst I love lace trimmed summer shorts and light blouses, I’m definitely an autumn/winter girl when it comes to my wardrobe. From polo necks to knee high boots and jumper dresses, autumn/winter style is chic AND comfortable - hurrah.

All the food
Us Brits know how to do winter food - pies and stews to name a few. It’s filling, delicious and beats a salad any day.

The walking
Summer strolls are all well and good, but nothing beats a crisp winter walk. Wrapping up and heading outdoors is refreshing and good for you.

Guilt free TV bingeing
Movie marathons in summer just seem wrong when it’s nice outside. Autumn allows it. It doesn’t judge. So snuggle up, throw on your favourite film (or five) and while away the hours.

Duvet days It’s time for the luxury thick duvets to come back out - yay! Disappear under a mountain of pillows, throws and sheets. If you sleep long enough it’ll be dark again so it’s not like you wasted a day when you never saw daylight right?
Beauty be gone
Girls can relax - the beauty regimes ease up now summer days are drawing in. Less leg shaving, pedicures are barely seen and fake tan sessions to keep up with Susan who went to San Fran this summer in the office can stop, equalling more time for other things - I’ll let you make of that whatever you will.

Warm drinks
From mulled wine to hot chocolate, winter brings winning drinks with it.

Exer-what now?
Summer puts pressure on looking fit and toned. Your body is practically never on show (to the public) come autumn/winter so those fast abs and spin classes can slow down. Hell, walking anywhere in minus degree weather is effort in itself…

The colours
Autumn is up there as being one of the prettiest seasons with landscapes around you changing and leaves switching up their shade. Look up, seriously look up at the world around you and appreciate just how awesome autumn is. Kick some leaves too.

Remember remember the 5th November
From bonfire night to halloween and Christmas, autumn/winter brings with it some of the best events of the year.
