I was never a big fan of Fall as it stormed hard AF in Germany. Gloomy days after gloomy days with everlasting rain that made errands a daunting task. To make matters worse the days were shorter than in the lower hemisphere, which would easily push you into a temporary state of depression. Further, you couldn’t really show off your layering skills since the unpredictable weather almost forced you to wear rain attire at almost all times. The predominantly gray and brown environment added to the heaviness that one would experience visually in this part of the planet.
Moving to Boston changed EVERYTHING! I never understood the hype behind the term “Indian Summer” until I experienced it in person. Northeasterners will proudly tell you about their unique and broad range of foliage colors, which spans from golden yellow to over-saturated pink. If you’re lucky enough you may even find some purple in the mix.
The long lasting Summer merging into a colorful autumn changed my feelings towards this season completely. To me, this experience re-defined the equivalence of fall and ultimately made me fall utterly in love with it! In honor of this beautiful and natural phenomenon, I created a mood board playing with the different blush nuances, which I see reflected in the foliage and that I’m aiming to incorporate in my color schemes and outfits.
As “painful” as it feels thinking of the nearing year end, I look forward to the warm and colorful days fall has to offer. That heart warming atmosphere that will make one appreciate a hot cup of chocolate and long strolls while apple picking with friends and family.
