16 photos of uppsala glowing in autumn

24 Oct 2015

hello! it’s the weekend! can i get an amen?!

this past week the weather has been gloomy, gray, and chilly. and i have loved it. but, friday, the sun came out. which actually felt quite perfect.

as the golden rays of autumn streamed into my apartment windows, i just knew that i had to get out and take a walk. i needed to take a little tour of uppsala (where i live). besides, i was gonna meet lina up a the hospital at the end of her treatment time, so it’d be perfect to leave about an hour and a half earlier and just wander.

i often do that. become a tourist in my own city. do you?

so i showered, put on a little bit of makeup, slipped into my rust-orange-colored tights, pulled on my boots, threw on a long black sweater, and wrapped a cozy gray scarf around my neck. i was absolutely channeling my favorite autumn style.


so, here we go. let’s take a long walk together in the mid-afternoon autumn sun, where, here in sweden, though it is barely 2pm, the shadows are already long, the tones are golden, the air is crisp, the sky is deep blue, and there is a magical glow everywhere i look.

enjoy your saturday, my friends! namaste.
onwards + upwards! xoxo

      I was so excited to share them – and even more humbled by the fact that you joined in and “walked” with me. Hope your weekend was just what you needed, Aura. xoxo

        I certainly did and need to get out more to soak in as much of the colors as I can for the dark months ahead. 🙂

    I feel like I went on the walk with you, your photos are stunningly beautiful!
    I love the yellow leaves against the bright blue sky, it looks so pretty.

      Yay! So happy to have had you along with me. 🙂 Those colors are almost too much for my eyes to handle – it was so unbelievably beautiful. xoxo

      I am so very glad you enjoyed it – and that you almost felt as if you were there. That was my intention! Yes, get out there and take a walk! And enjoy it! 🙂 Thanks for visiting. Happy Monday to you. xo

    Beautiful photos! And you really did get your autumn get up on! 🙂

      I sure did!! Thanks, love! xoxo

    Truly amazing autumn photos, Liz. I swear, I could feel the crispness in the air and the smell of the fallen leaves. The way you captured the low-angles autumn light was perfect (in my totally non-professional opinion) and I loved your use of shadow. Your Friday afternoon walk looks like the perfect way to begin a weekend. xoxo

      Thank you, Meghan. I thought about you as I walked, actually. I cannot wait until you make it to Sweden. 😉

      • Reply Meghan 29 Oct 2015 at 18:42

        I’ll get there someday, though I don’t know when. Sweden is a place I’ve always wanted to visit; I found your blog 4 years ago when I decided to search for expat blogs in countries I wanted to go to. 🙂
