It's August 30 on the calendar and I'm writing this post from warm house in Florina by drinking hot coffee, watching rain and listening music from "Big Little Lies" which me and Pete just finished to watch few days ago. My mood is fall inspired, relaxed and calm. I'm absolutely ready for a new season, new start, new people, places, stories and memories.
While I was living in Siberia this time of the year was the biggest torture of my life: I hated school and unfortunately needed to be back 1st September. Many times there was even snowing this day and I was deeply sad of living such an "ugly nature" life. Years passed and today I'm thankful to be in love and harmony with fall season. There is so beautiful autumn in Greece: with a lot of yellow, brown and dark green colors like in the movies from my childhood. There are rainy but really warm days, soft wind with a smell of wet grass and trees, delicious bakeries and coffees in town, nice people to meet and to gossip about this and that and mountains around which are preparing themselves for the winter season like they are alive.
I guess here in Europe fall has became my favorite time of the year. It's funny how different you see things depending of your location, family status, age and life experience. Everything is much more clear for me now.
First time for a long period I've created moodboards for my feeling about fall. There is an endless list of great stuff about it: Wool Hats which always were a touch of luxury and female superiority in my mind, Velvet Sandals with a massive block heel, elegant Book Stores, Cappuccino with Chocolate croissants, Knitted Sweaters, Ankle Boots, Coats, Rainy Streets, Messy hair and Dark Lipstics. Everything about it is "some kind of wonderful" for me.
The weather is not cold enough in Greece to wear all the clothes I'm speaking about and share on the moodboards, so I'm still enjoying the warm summer sun. However I'm changing more to the fall side with White Pants and a Pretty Blouse from Zaful with cute beads details. Besides I'm still wearing open toe sandals, but a more classic model which is made from leather, is in brown color and has a comfortable block heel.
