Last Monday, to my disdain, I woke up to thick fog and rain. It was exactly the type of weather I needed to put me in a cheery mood. Mondays are hard enough as it is, so the rain and cold made staying in my warm bed all the more tempting.
Fall has been in session for about a week now, but the weather still came as a shock to me. The transition from summer to fall was abrupt. One day it was 80 degrees and sunny, and then the next day it was 40 degrees and cloudy. I had hoped the weather would ease into cooler temperatures, but that’s not how Colorado works.
I am happy to say that the clouds have finally lifted like they always do. It was so comforting to wake up this morning to sunlight peeking through my window. The vivid reds and yellows of the autumn leaves reflected onto the walls of my room, and I finally felt like getting up for once. I finally felt motivated.
My mom wanted me to go to the grocery store with her, so I decided that I would actually get dressed today, rather than staying in my sweats.
Inspired by the leaves outside of my house, I wanted to play around with the fall color schemes. When I get dressed, I often first pick out a top or article of clothing that I want to build my outfit around. Today, it was my mustard-colored top from American Eagle that acted as my base.
The next thing I thought about was contrast. I scoured through my closet and found my red flannel with green, orange, and yellow accents. It went perfectly with my yellow top.
I knew the weather was going to be warmer today, so I had a dilemma. Was I going to wear a skirt or jeans? I ended up opting for my boyfriend jeans because they’re just more functional, and they still account for the warmer weather.
As for shoes, I went with my trusty leather booties.
Fall has ever changing weather, so it’s always good to wear layers. My flannel made my outfit more versatile . If it were to get too chilly, I could keep it on. If it got too hot, I could easily take it off and wrap it around my waist, almost creating a new look altogether.
Lately, I haven’t been making good use of my time, and the cold weather lately has only perpetuated this. Procrastination and lack of motivation have been my Achilles heel, stealing my sleep and my sense of control. I realize that I should tackle each day with a purpose because our days are numbered. Once one passes by, I’ll never get it back. So today, I’m going to get stuff done, stay positive, and prepare for the new week ahead. I am going to turn over a new leaf.
Have a great Sunday!
