Cozy + Bold Essentials

Cozy + Bold

We've been blessed with an uncharacteristically long fall here in Chicago...just as I had hoped for. I've even been able to surprisingly go without a coat for most of it through careful layering. But now that we've pushed the clocks back, the signs of cooler days ahead could not be any more apparent. I am looking forward to spending more quality time at home and surrounding myself with these cozy and bold essentials. 

1. This site is full of beautiful ways to preserve your memories from the year. 
2. A cute marble tray for serving homemade sweets.
3. I'm ready to reintroduce woodsy scents into my home.
4. I'll be celebrating 6 years with my guy this month and this card pretty much sums it up.
5. Another blanket scarf to add to my collection.
6. These socks are like sweaters for your feet.
7. It'd be fun to attempt to knit a pillow like this one...but I'll probably just end up buying it. 
8. The perfect November look, including one awesome shearling coat

Stockist Instagram Love

Can we just stop and take a moment to ogle over how amazing each of these shops look? The list of Evermore stockists continues to grow and it seriously sends my mind spinning to see my cards landing in such cool places. It saddens me that I'm not able to visit each and every store in person, which is why I am guilty of occasionally drooling over their Instagram feeds. I love the unique approach that each owner takes and just had to share a few of my favorites with you.

Fresh Finds For Fall

Fresh finds for fall via Evermore Paper Co.

Today marks the first day of fall! I've mentioned before that this is my favorite time of year and now that I am finished with several big events, I'm excited to fully embrace the season ahead. The days are still warm here, but I can certainly sense that change is in the air. The trees are starting to look a little crispy and the nights have been cooling off enough for me to sleep with the windows open. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it continues like this for a while and that we have a long fall. In the meantime, here are some recent finds that are perfect for the transition into those cooler months.  

1. Suede ankle booties . . . I'm sold!
2. Finally got my hands on a Dalmatian Jasper Elder Necklace from Michelle Starbuck Designs
3. This soothing foot scrub does wonders for calloused feet and smells like the mountains.
4. A beautiful cheese board to compliment a cozy night indoors. 
5. I plan on sticking with neutral polish a bit longer before switching to something moody.  
6. This sweater jacket is such a great transitional piece. 
7. The perfect planner to organize your year-end goals.

After a week-long vacation in Colorado and a summer jam-packed with shows, I am settling into fall and enjoying these quiet weeks leading up to the holiday madness. I realize this blog has taken a beating during the last few months and I hope to change that in the months ahead. Slowly, but surely, I am getting better at managing my schedule and I plan to use the little time I find here and there to share more with you. 

And, since I have the tendency to overcommit myself, I plan to post 2 or so times a week until it becomes more of a habit. For starters, I wanted to share some of my latest favorites from Etsy. I think the cooler days are drawing me towards these moody grays. I especially love the textures and how well each item looks on a neutral background. As my tastes evolve, I hope that one day my home will be a blank canvas filled with beautiful items like these.
