Classiq Guest Post

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

Hello! This is Ada from Classiq and I am so happy to be a guest on Dawn's lovely blog. I was thrilled when Dawn invited me to guest post, as The Alternative Wife is one of the first blogs I began following and one of my daily stops, always bursting with prettiness, inviting to a little bit of daydreaming every single day.

Today I thought I would share a few images that encapsulate a beautiful autumn, a season I have surprised myself enjoying more than ever before this year. The unseasonably warm weather for a good part of this fall may have something to do with this, but I think the secret lies in learning to appreciate the gift of the luxurious comforts as I call them: an elegant coat to wrap yourself in and take a walk on the sidewalk covered in a carpet of fallen leaves, reaching for special details for your wardrobe, like rich colours and prints in accessories, and your home, like velvety chairs or heavy blankets, and everything topped off with the ultimate delights: the smell of fresh coffee in the morning, fresh flowers or savouring a good movie or a new book on a rainy Sunday after having spent a wonderful Saturday afternoon in your favourite bookstore.

I hope you all have a beautiful day!
