Basic Witches Unite

“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall”

Fall is officially here! It’s been my favourite season since I can remember… I LIVE for the crisp sunny days, colourful landscapes and cozy outfits. I truly enjoy the rain and find wilted flowers leftover from summer very beautiful in their own way. I always feel a surge of energy in the fall, and the quote “Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall” by F. Scott Fitzgerald rings true to me. In the fall, of all seasons, I feel the most creative and in-tune with my mind and body.

I love that for the next couple of months I can wear all the cozy winter sweaters, scarves and hats, but can forgo the tights if it’s warm enough. To me, this somehow makes the outfits look more playful or something... I can’t quite put my finger on it but wearing warm clothes without tights makes me feel very cool haha  Maybe it has something to do with me being raised by a Russian grandma who would always say that if I don’t wear tights, my ovaries will freeze, and I always wanted to rebel against that. For some reason in the spring, even when the temperatures are similar, I feel still too cold from winter to rock that look.

October is very special to me - this is when Jacob and I have most of our traditions. Also we are such homebodies - there’s nothing better than being curled up on the couch with a good book/ Netflix show, a steaming cup of something delicious and rain drops rapping on the window (you can’t quite justify this behaviour during the warmer months).

I think I get most excited each fall for the new/old fall wardrobe! Or the Halloween…or drinking PSLs (I don’t care for your judgement…every fall I lose my cool factor and let my basic witch out).

Here are some things I’m excited to do and wear this season:

  • Wear this dress all the time (also comes in 2 other patterns if plaid isn't your thing) with cozy socks and Blundstones

  • Go to the Aldor Acres pumpkin patch - there's also a petting zoo, food trucks and all you can pick sunflowers for $5

  • Carve my pumpkins while watching Hocus Pocus and the Great Pumpkin (order of watching is yet to be determined)

  • Drink this pumpkin spice tea from David's Tea

  • Go to Tofino for the weekend (we've been going every October for the last few years)

  • Wear these NYX lipglosses in Modern Soul and Maison in warm fall hues
