October is THE richest month of the year here in the North East. In terms of fashion, natural landscape, creative energy and sentimentality… it takes the seasonal cake. While September is basically a post-summer hangover, October opens up a brand new season, prompting the revival of pumpkin spice addictions, fall boots (come on, they’re the best), cozy knitwear and spooky, hazy mornings.

One of my favorite things to do at the beginning of a new season is visualize what I see for myself: how I’ll spend my time, what I’ll wear, and what experiences I’m looking forward to—no matter how abstract. Here it all is, in mood board form.


October love: soy candles  coin fringe necklaces  stacked rings  wide brimmed hats  cozy ponchos  hot coffee  creative sketching sessions  quality time with the girls  boho textiles  colorful leaf collecting  relentless daydreaming  oversized flannel

Stay inspired!
