Fall Frame of Mind: The Autumn Wishlist Edit

 

Fall is my favourite time of year! I can’t resist the layers, new season in fashion and the crisp, clean air that comes with cooler evenings and starry nights. I am also very much a mood reader this time of year. I love books that inspire snuggling up in a cozy blanket with a cup of something hot to drink. With all the various trends and classics making the rounds this season (anyone else really digging the Pantone Fall 2016 palette?), I decided to make my own inspiration board on Pinterest here covering all my favourite aspects of the season and things I am looking forward too!

Pin Envy: The Enamel Pin Edit

The enamel pin culture has really taken over my IG feed lately. I’ve always been a collector since my preteen days and it is so very cool to see this Instagram-driven reemergence take on a whole new level in my adulthood. They date back to Civil War era. At that time they signified government merits. During the late 1960’s they were used by political and social groups. Pins started out at as symbols of achievement & membership in different organizations. These days, enamel pins are more of an every day accessory. They reflect your personality, favourite interests, or fandom. Their collectible nature is perfect for any lover of fashion.

 

Pins range in a wide variety of style, prices and sizes! Anyone is able to curate a collection. Read on to see some of my personal favorites.
