A label synonymous with “it” girls, cool kids and all things edgy, Acne Studios has quite the cult following. It also has some of my favourite ready-to-wear pieces like these Puffy boots. They are going to be perfect for the long, cold, harsh winters up here in the North. I can finally be trendy and functional! Haha.
The boots have the perfect soles with lots of traction for the snowy, icy weather we tend to get in the cold months up here. I can almost feel a slightly cooler breeze in the air. Can anyone else? The sun still kisses my skin, but the breeze has began to lick against it too. The nights are cooler and the stars have begun to shine sooner. How I long for autumn.
// Have you started your F/W wardrobe yet? //
Autumn. The time of the year where mother nature reminds you how beautiful it can be to let things go. Cold, pleasant air while the sun is gently out. The season where rain and fog make the morning that much more beautiful and car rides with good songs that much more enjoyable. You feel more, taste more and maybe even think more. Autumn will be like the night, another universe. Autumn. My happiness.
// ARE YOU EXCITED FOR AUTUMN? //
Is it just me, or does it feel like this year literally started last month?
I have found myself wishing for this year it to end like never before. I’m graduating at the end of this year, meaning I have had the most stressful year yet, with the hardest classes yet.
I also find myself beginning to feel the daunting pressures of buying christmas presents for the family and the fast paced, no time for breaks family visits, which don’t get me wrong, I love, but as an extreme introvert, are very tiring and bring on the anxiety. And have me pre-planning my life out for the next 2 months.
But, as autumn is slowly coming to an end and winter approaches here in Canada, I have often found myself and my family going out for walks at our local conservation area, where I had a personal epiphany yesterday. I want to focus on the now- not the “tomorrow we go here, I have to buy presents for so and so, and don’t forget, blah, blah, blah.” I did not realize how much I truly missed when in this head space of checking off mental to-do lists.
I want to practice self-love, focus on the little things that are happening, and stop wishing for this to be over. I’m going to enjoy my last time at school, at home with my family before I move away.
This post is my personal pledge that I will not let these last 2 months be wished away, they’ll be lived like nobody’s business and I’m gonna freaking enjoy this christmas like when I was 5 years old and was clueless to the world of anxiety and stress.
Let’s enjoy today, eh?
