Don't you love how the leaves of autumn look? Oh, and that lovely slightly scratchy rustle they make across streets and side walks as the wind gently puffs them this way and that?
Don't you love (not as much, mind you) sweeping those leaves up? And how there never look to be as many of them in the small(ish) piles that greet you at the front gate than how many there actually as as you heave your piles of swept up leaves into the green bin? It's just one of those autumn things.
And then there's the coffees of autumn. It's a lovely walk in the brisk morning's air to go get one. Not too hot and energy draining or too cold and finger freezing. There's just enough oomph in the air for you to keep your eye on the prize.
Even my toes got to share my enthusiasm for all things autumn.
My silver Nike Air Max Theas arrived from ASOS this afternoon.
I love them already. They're loud and proud in the metallic trainer department. On a younger pair of feet than mine they'd look gangster. On a more immaculately groomed and fit pair of feet, camp. But on me? All I care about is that they're already comfortable and that, therefore, I shall be wearing them for preschooler mum duty this weekend.
In other wardrobe news at SSG Manor 2.0, we have been rocking the two tone / colour blocked outfit hard.
Best and Less was the source for this T shirt for Toddler SSG. The cape is detachable and in his current favourite colour to boot.
How's autumn looking where you are?
