This Is What Made Victoria Beckham Fall in Love With David Beckham at First Sight

Victoria and David Beckham are practically synonymous with one another at this point: The duo recently celebrated their 17th wedding anniversary together, and it’s hard to think of a time when they weren’t at one another’s sides, TBH.


Yet, such a time did exist, and Victoria, for one, can remember the moment that it all changed as clearly as day — well, sort of — a fact she proved in her cover interview with British Vogue.

Penning a letter to her 18-year-old-self that discusses her relationship with her own self-image as well as fashion, it’s the bit about her relationship with David that really had us swooning.

Reflecting back on the day she met her fated husband-to-be, she writes as follows: “Learn more about football, especially the offside rule. And yes, love at first sight does exist. It will happen to you in the Manchester United Players’ lounge — although you will get a little drunk, so exact details are hazy. While the other football players stand at the bar drinking with their mates, you will see David standing aside with his family. (He’s not even in the first team at this stage — you are the famous one.) And he has such a cute smile. You, too, are close to your family, and you think how similar he feels to you. He will ask for your number. (He still has the London-to-Manchester plane ticket on which you wrote it.)”

David, for his part, had his heart set on Victoria even before their fateful meeting, as he reportedly told The Sun. After seeing her in “Say You’ll Be There,” he told the outlet that she was the girl for him. “She’s my idea of perfection,” he said then. “I knew if she wanted me, we’d be together forever.”

Awww, how cute are these two? Cheers to love at first sight.

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
