Beauty of Autumn


Maybe it’s in the smell of fresh made coffee in early morning while you are staring at the city’s gentle awakening. During those early times fog spreads the veil that gently hugs sleepy buildings, and old street lamps are whispering last lullaby before that cars start their own charade. As I open my window, fresh air rushes to get inside and with the scent of the room intertwines in invisible shadow that serenely spins all around. I stand like a statue in the room, with cigarette burning between my fingers and closed eyes. I allow those waves of air to weave the web around me and they make tick-tocks from the clock calm until they finally become without sound. When the little friend from the wall impatiently says it‘s the time, I will hear Mr. Baker from a stereo telling he falls in love terribly hard. After I take a bath, I come back sneakily to meet my closet that said farewell to summer’s wear and while Ruth will miss her darling when autumn leaves start to fall, in my head I create my ode to the beauty of the fall.
Is it just because that the gingham will be replaced with the tweed, reason why autumn is so hopelessly beautiful? Or it’s because the lace will reach full romance in combination with knits. Can you find the autumn in a sound that your Mary Jane’s make while they find their way through the autumn leaves. Is maybe antique market covered in gold, secret way to lost times. Or it’s the cheery wind that makes fun with you and blows your hat to the ground. Or ribbon from your hair trapped in the collar of your coat. Or it’s the beauty in the afternoon sun that tries hard to peep from behind of cloud and give shine to tress and the grass in the countryside. Maybe it’s the evening that time when you can fell that air filled with something I cannot describe, or it’s morning, I don’t know. But it gives me a thought what if it’s there just one life of this kind and maybe you and I might not smell again the beauties of everything that this kind of common surround creates. What else girl can do than to enjoy that gloomy but extremely sweet vibe?

Love the vintage inspiration of your collage. I'm so going to miss summer, but I've always loved an Autumn wardrobe too, so I'm not going to be too sad. Can't wait to dig out my knits.
