"Beanies are only for fall."
Oh, how void that statement is, like the 'k' in 'knit' and the kiss of a lover who murders with treachery. But, just as sure as the tongue glides over 'o' in 'autumn' and a forlorn tear runs down a melancholy eye, autumn is for knit and hats and knitted hats.
Living on the equator has granted me no chance of seeing chlorophyll break into cracking veins on yellowing leaves, stem down, tips rimmed. Scarlets and aubergines do not touch the world I live in -- they are the distant infection that scorch reality red oceans away and I can only watch through pixels and static the flaming beauty of Autumn, large 'O' and silent 'N.'
Of all the trenches whipped out and the sweaters flung over, burgundy splashed perfect and mustard stained pretty, knitted hats are perhaps my favourite part of fall fashion, though one look at my outfits and one will realize knitted hats are perhaps my favourite part of fashion entirely.
The beige and yellow ones are new additions to my growing collection of knitted hats, sent graciously over by the people over at Dressgal. With lovely craftsmanship on both, yarn thick and tight, insulation is easily achieved by these hats. Spend an hour on the equator at room temperature with one of these hats on, and you'll feel as if you have incubated your head.
If you're one who would rather a red beanie or a teal, brown or white one, fret not for these hats come in different colours. Versatility accompanies these knitted hats and an assortment of not only styles but colours, too, are available to choose from. For prices that lurk and lay low, the quality is ridiculously good.
With September already in full swing, I find myself irrationally excited for festives up ahead -- far, far ahead.
The Mid-Autumn Festival -- affectionately labelled The Mooncake Festival by the community with which I associate myself with -- prowls by the end of the month, lanterns and mouth-watering delicacies awaiting eager mouths, folktales of goddesses and dragons rolling about tongues. September the 27th is marked in red on my calendar, and I count down everyday to its celebration.
Further up ahead is a global festivity, of gifts and chorals, of birth and of joy; Christmas. What else is there to say except for the fact that December and 'vacation' are both stems of this holiday?
September has been alright so far but I'm oddly optimistic this month. It is without a doubt, however, that my excitement is reserved for life up ahead; tertiary education, leaving the country, chomping down mooncakes.
How has your month been?
