Autumnal Vibes: Moodboard and Shopping List

“I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion.”

The season that sneaks in around the edges of August in the form of a cool breeze during the summer nights or the occasional brisk morning when out walking the pup. It lingers like an old friend during back to school season and the inevitable prep for Halloween. I always anticipate autumn weeks in advance. Florida isn’t known for it’s cool climate and those brisk autumn days are so few. It’s the time I can finally wear layers of scarves and sweaters, boots and over the knee socks, dresses and tights. It’s the time for pumpkin patches and as many outdoor activities (movies in the park, bonfires and smores!) sans bugs that we can cram into the few weeks we have it. Emma and I love to make apple cobblers, autumn stews and enjoy many cups of tea with all the windows thrown open in the house.

Autumn is in full swing, my daughter and I are all set for adventure this season. She’s old enough to remember hay rides and hunting for pumpkins, Halloween movie nights and creating our costumes. I also cannot resist making room in my closet for new autumn pieces. I’ve narrowed down my shopping list to these staples: fall floral prints, oxfords, collared tops, layered jackets, and chunky knit sweaters. I’ve seen a slow change in my own personal style since Emma came into my life. As much as I love a good trend, I really love and appreciate classic pieces that withstand the ever evolving state of fashion each year. Which does explain my current taste for vintage floral patterns and embroidered pieces. Oxfords, whether flat or heeled offer great counter balance to so much feminine print, while cable knit sweaters are often a necessity. I cannot resist pairing my vintage and embellished Peter Pan collars with cozy sweaters for a nerdy meets vintage look. I’ve already acquired a few pieces from my autumn shopping list and am sharing some of my favorites in this post as well!
